Chris Culliver: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Culliver allegedly hit a bicyclist with his car, then fled the scene, only to be tracked down by a civilian, whom Culliver then threatened with a set of brass knuckles. The incident apparently didn't involve any weapons besides the brass knuckles, and there were no serious injuries involved, but it still doesn't reflect well on Culliver, assuming the report is accurate. The 25-year-old cornerback missed all of 2013 with a torn ACL, but at last report, he'd improved enough to thrust himself into the competition for a starting job. It's unclear how this incident will affect his standing with the team, but the 49ers undoubtedly still have a need at cornerback after Tarell Brown moved across the bridge to Oakland in free agency.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
While Culliver would have been competing for a reserve role in the 49ers secondary during camp, he sustained a torn ACL and will miss the entire 2013 season. His 47 tackles in 2012 were the most of any non-starting defensive player and would he have retained his role, he would have been expected to continue building off last year's totals.
Culliver will be a backup cornerback.
