SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- The San Francisco 49ers have been using their depth on defense as several key players have been sidelined.
The latest to go down is defensive lineman Ray McDonald, who injured his right biceps and could miss some time. If McDonald is out, he will be replaced by Tony Jerod-Eddie. Here's a look at Jerod-Eddie:
Height/weight: 6-foot-5, 301 pounds
School: Texas A&M
How acquired: Undrafted free agent in 2012 (with that draft class a near total bust, perhaps he can salvage it)
Career NFL games: Five
What’s expected from him: Be a solid rotational player
Career highlight: An interception Sunday night against Houston after he replaced McDonald
Did you know? He was a high school (De Soto, Texas) and college teammate of Denver star pass-rusher Von Miller.
