The 49ers will have to wait a year to see their 2012 5th round pick hit the field as linebacker Darius Fleming has torn his ACL. The injury, which was suffered in practice, but did not happen because of contact, will likely sideline him for the entirety of the 2012 season. With two solid rush linebackers after on the roster in Aldon Smith and Ahmad Brooks, the 49ers were looking at Fleming, formerly of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, as purely a depth player at most in 2012, so they won’t miss him much. Still, you never like to see an injury happen to a player before he can ever play in an NFL game.
