Will Tukuafu DL SF Oct 03 '11
49ers placed DE Will Tukuafu on injured reserve, ending his season.
The extent of the injury is unknown, but this is the roster deletion needed to create room for S Colin Jones. A former undrafted free agent out of Oregon, Tukuafu played 17 snaps in the first three games before being inactive for Week 4. Rookies Demarcus Dobbs and Ian Williams could move up the depth chart.
