After trying out Wednesday morning with two other kickers, K Shane Andrus was signed by the 49ers to a one-year contract. Andrus will step in for 15-year veteran Joe Nedney, who injured his right knee last week against St. Louis. MRI results showed a right knee strain and a bone bruise. Nedney is out this week and will be reevaluated next week.
Andrus (5-10, 190) has played in five career games, hitting 10 of 10 point after attempts and missing his only field goal attempt. He came in for the 49ers in their 2009 season finale at St. Louis and connected on all four point after attempts. Andrus was with San Francisco through training camp this year, only to be released on September 3.
