SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) -- The San Francisco 49ers put
quarterback Alex Smith on injured reserve with a shoulder injury,
probably ending the former No. 1 draft pick's four-year career with
Smith had surgery on his right shoulder in December, but
appeared to be at full strength in training camp. He lost his
starting job to journeyman J.T. O'Sullivan in camp, and Smith then
felt a painful new injury in his shoulder during practice before
last week's season opener. Smith has a broken bone in his shoulder, and likely will require more surgery, coach Mike Nolan said.
