Injured Braylon Edwards out 'for a little bit'

Braylon Edwards, in his first year with the 49ers, has had minimal impact with his new team, catching four passes for 48 yards in San Francisco’s first two games. It looks like those numbers won’t budge for a while.

That’s because coach Jim Harbaugh told reporters today, via CSN Bay Area, that Edwards had a surgical procedure performed on his right knee and will be “out for a little bit.”

Edwards injured himself on the third play of last week’s loss to the Cowboys, and he’ll definitely be out of action for this Sunday’s contest against the Bengals. Other than that, Harbaugh said he isn’t sure when Edwards will return.

That’s the bad news. The (somewhat) good news? Michael Crabtree, who was inactive last week with a foot injury, “most likely” will be ready to play, Harbaugh said.

Edwards was supposed to be a relatively hot receiver on the free agent market, but instead, he fell to San Francisco in what basically is a one-year, $1 million deal (though it could rise to $3.5 million if he hits certain far-reaching incentives).

While Edwards touted the line that he’d get a fresh start in San Francisco, his tenure with the 49ers has looked -- and this is putting it nicely -- rather ordinary. An injury that will keep him out for the time being certainly won’t hurt the feelings of those who decided Edwards wasn’t worth a free agent offer.

You are wrong spinachman. SOME guys ARE gangsters.  Braylon Edwards isn't one of them.

It's funny how many people were saying that the 49ers were crazy to sign Edwards to a $3.5 million contract. Lest they forget that the total is mostly based on reaching specified performance goals.

I didn't think this was possible, but it clearly looks like Mark Sanchez made Braylon Edwards the past 2 years and not the other way around.  The Jets pass offense is functioning fine without McDrops.  The Niners pass offense somehow got worse.  I think this ends the debate of Sanchez vs. Alex Smith, not that most knowledgable football fans considered it much of a debate.

And this is coming from someone that does not consider Sanchez all that good.  Just McDrops and Alex Smith are awful.
