LaBoy and Nedney Placed on IR

Posted by Scott Kegley on December 18, 2010 – 5:13 PM

The San Francisco 49ers announced they have placed LB Travis LaBoy and K Joe Nedney on the Injured Reserve List. The team has promoted TE Colin Cloherty and DT Will Tukuafu from the practice squad to the active roster.

LaBoy, who played in all 14 games this season and ranked 2nd on the team with 5.0 sacks, suffered a knee injury against the San Diego Chargers on December 16.

Nedney has been sidelined since suffering a knee injury against the St. Louis Rams on November 14. Prior to his injury, he connected on 11 of 13 field goal attempts and all 17 PATs this season.

Cloherty (6-2, 245) originally entered the league as an undrafted free agent with the Indianapolis Colts on April 30, 2009. He played in one game with the Colts and registered one reception for two yards. Cloherty spent the majority of the 2009 season on the Colts practice squad before being signed to their active roster for the season finale. He was released by the Colts following training camp this year and was signed to the 49ers practice squad on October 6.

Tukuafu (6-4, 293) signed with the 49ers as a rookie free agent from the University of Oregon on August 12, 2010. He was released following training camp and later signed to the 49ers practice squad on September 5. Tukuafu was originally signed earlier this year by the Seattle Seahawks before being released on June 22. Tukuafu totaled 131 tackles, 14.5 sacks, five fumble recoveries and four forced fumbles over the final three years of his collegiate career for the Ducks.

    I think they should promote Nate to the active roster and let him play after this weekend…he had had two years to learn the playbook!! Nothing to lose after this weekend.

    We need 4 tight ends on the roster?

    the best thing we can do is to win out the next two games left. but i think we should jus play 2nd and 3rd stringers and let them get some game time in and hopefully we lose those games so we can get a decent draft pick.. the best thing to do is to start rebuilding a new system and letting the next head coach get a chance to make it.. give him 4 yrs at least.. lets not get rid of any of the defensive staff.. give mike singletary his original job coaching the linebackers. lets get JIM HARBAUGH AS HEAD COACH AND ANDREW LUCK WITH THE 1ST ROUND PICK.

    How come the 49ers didn’t pull out that play that uses Sopoaga at FB? when they were at the goal line against the Chargers?

    Good Question!

    Will you guys stop asking to promote Nate Davis. The guy had 1 deep ball and that was it. If Nate was that good why is he still on as Free Agent? Why hasn’t any team picked him up yet? The dude can’t learn the playbook and can’t read blitzs. Get over yourself with Nate Davis. Get rid of Carr and Alex and keep Troy as back up and draft a new qb and make sure we grab a HC that can coach up a QB.

    That display on the field Thurs could be sumd up with one word… embarrasing.
    Not our defense though… they played tough for what seemed like all of 60 mins. I SEE CHANGES COMING!

    This team is so mismanaged along with a lousy QB it spells LOSER !!!

    At least let him play the last 2 games you stupid niners coaches

    Jr Baca, I’m sure that we all support our team, but think, if we happen to go to the playoffs….who do we play at QB? Who’s going to take us there? Singletary still has some thinking to do…..

    Go 49ers, lets win the last 2 games of our divison and hope & pray that the other teams lose to send us into the playoffs. New Mexico 9er Nation supports you! Go 49ers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    its insulting to now have 4 active tight ends and we didnt promote nate davis.nate are best chance at the future but the niners are determinjed to let another good qb get away.so next year we are keeping alex and car what a joke the owners are lucky we are such faithfull fans.

    we need some big name safeties, and to be more dedicated to our plays our stars are use to playing ,. alex smith needs to kill himself paracticeing on acuracy on the deep throws………… GO NINERS!

    The 49ers record has little to do with Alex Smith. He’s thrown 12 interceptions this year. That’s not that bad considering Drew Brees at 19, Peyton at 15, and Aaron Rodgers at 10. And although there are more stats to consider, a 60% completion rating is pretty solid. Alex Smith doesn’t have enough time in the pocket for his receivers to get down the field during key plays. I will say he’s no Drew Brees or Peyton, but he’s definitely not THE problem.

    Argue with me all you want, but this is a coaching problem. I have never seen a team lose on so many 4th downs.

    Bad play calling and clock management. Four of the Niners first five losses were by less than three points against some high caliber teams. All coaching in my eyes.

    That is a very good question Juan. That would have been an ideal time for a play like that.

  17. By Frustrated on Dec 20, 2010 | Reply

    All this team needs is better leadership. Alex smith needs to be benched for life and Singletary needs to manage better and start doing a “decent job” himself. Go niners better luck next year, we need to start STRONGER next year.

    you do realize we win these next two games were most likly going to the playoffs

  19. By ANGEL on Dec 20, 2010 | Reply

    ALEX is a good qb…coaching & play calling is what kills us.we need an offensive mind coach who knows how to use the weapons we have on offense names like davis,crabtree,westbrook,morgan,gore, think about.the deffense is there they just need that offensive mastermind……….

  20. By VA 9er on Dec 20, 2010 | Reply

    What this team needs is motivation. The players need to hold each other accountable. The Alex vs. Troy debate is a moot point, both have their plusses and minuses, but Alex brings the ability to run the entire playbook (if the OC would use all of it). This season has been a HUGE disappointment but with as bad as it has been we still have a solid chance to win out and win the division. If the players realize that they can be so inconsistent the entire year and win the division with a 7-9 record, I would hope that would be motivation enough. We can’t do anything about the players currently on the roster so each and every one needs to give 110% on every play. We’re not done yet…go 9ers!!!

    The next two games will define Alex Smith’s future in the NFL and Mike Singletary’s career with the Niners.

    Let’s do this!!

    Alex smith is way better than last year’s JT (Just Throw an Interception). I wouldn’t draft another QB to replace Alex next year; I’d keep him, and trade my early draft picks for a lot of later ones, and try to pick up a lot of O-Linemen. They are the key to the whole offense.

    The defense seems solid, so only if they have a gapping hole, and a standout defensive player is available should they worry about drafting defensive players.

    Anyone who thinks Nate Davis should play Qb anywhere but the practice field of Santa Clara is an Idiot. There is no reason to think he is better suited than Alex Smith who has years of experience, albeit struggling mightily at times, he is a more established qb, and deserves to finish the season. Singletary is helpless on the Offensive side of the ball, and The OC is learning on the fly. San Diego is a premier team that suffered from not having their #1 Wr this year. With V Jackson there all year and their second and third receivers not finding themselves on the Injury List a couple times, they’d be right with the Patriots in the discussion for AFC #1. Losing to San Diego is not disgraceful in anyway. We had a lousy year becasue we played Top Flight opponents and were outmatched on the drawing board and our limited creativity

    That is exactly what it is Top niner! Down to the last two games of the season and hopefully a playoff run. This is Alex’s and singletary’s moment to prove themselves as leaders with the ability to win must win games.

    The whole season has been horrible yet the niners are still there hopefully there to win the division!

    Lets go niners… it is there for the taking once again!

    I think the 9ers have been given another chance of redemption. 2 more games, both teams have been beaten by our 9ers, our team is better then the Rams and Arizona. I believe that our team has a very good chance of getting to the playoffs. let’s let our coaches do their job.Have faith in our team. I pray that our 49ers win the rest & the other teams lose the rest of their games in Y’shua’s name, amen. Go 49ers, all the way to the Superbowl……….. 6 Time Champs

    Mr. Troy Smith, you have been given the opportunity to lead your team. With God on your side anything is possible. Do your very best, give 110% of yourself and you and your team will prevail. Go 49ers, all the way to the Superbowl, nothing can stop you now. Claim what is yours. It is your destiny!!!!!!!

    Well the I’s have it.

    Kevin Lynch summed it up sooooo well in the Chronicel.

    He says.

    There are many ideas as to why the 9ers have struggled this season, but it’s CLEAR that the main point he makes which I believe is UNDIPSPUTIBLE is that the main faliure is not one guy and especially not the QB named Alex Smith-its the lack of being able to DEVELOP and GROOM the young talent like ALEX, WILLIS, GOLDSTON, BROOKS, ETC., ETC., ETC.,.

    Well to me that RAT SMEWLLS like coaching—Say what you will but ALL NFL experts don’t argue this point.

    Win or lose–playoffs or not—-NEW COACHING STAFF PLEASE WITH A GM that KNOWS FOOTBALL. If we had that, we wouldn’t be inb this mess.

    I’m out till next season, this time I swear it.

    But this main and OBVIOUS POINT to people that know the game and that don’t read the CHRONICLE needed to HEAR this.

    Hay KDB, why don’t you stay away for good, we don’t need nagative fans, nagative fans are not true 49er fans. A true 49er fan will back his or her team win or lose. Coach Sing. is doing a great job, the team is doing well for a young team, we still have a shot at the Superbowl, true 9er fans never give up, we stick with our team. I have been a 9er faithful for over 30 years, and have been through some great wins and really bad loses, I never gave up, and never will. This is a new era of football. This is just the beginning. Our 49er team is being groomed by the best and will become one of best teams to ever be in the NFL. Our team needs us fans to support them 110%. Go 9ers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
