- Branch notes that Jim Harbaugh indicated during the team’s training camp that Collie is hasn’t fully recovered from the ruptured patella tendon injury he suffered last year.
- On top of that, Collie only received 14 snaps during Sunday’s preseason game and didn’t see any action until the third quarter.
Collie, 27, visited with a number of NFL teams before ultimately signing with San Francisco. If he is in fact released, it’s going to be hard for him to catch on with another team in the coming weeks given the sheer number of players who will be released before the start of the regular season. Add in the fact that there are real concerns regarding Collie’s serious history of concussions and it seems as though the odds are against him playing at all this season.
