49ers Hopeful Brown Will Return This Season
49ers cornerback Tarell Brown suffered a rib injury during last Sundays victory over the Saints that was serious enough to force him to spend the night in New Orleans and fly back to San Francisco on Monday.
On Thursday, coach Jim Harbaugh said at his press conference that the team does not believe Browns injury is severe enough to end his season although he expects that it will take a little time before hes able to return to the lineup.
Harbaugh didnt get specific about Browns diagnosis, but did say that word of cracked ribs that was reported earlier in the week didnt hit the nail on the head.
With Brown apparently out for Monday nights game against the Redskins, Tramaine Brock will step into a larger role across from Carlos Rogers.
