The San Francisco 49ers placed Alex Boone on injured reserve on Friday, making him ineligible for Sunday's season finale.
Per Josh Alper of NBC's Pro Football Talk, "Boone won’t play in the team’s final game of the year after being placed on injured reserve because of a knee problem. There’s no indication that the injury will force Boone to miss any offseason work, so he should be back on the field in the spring to play out the final year of the contract he reworked before reporting to work with the 49ers this season."
Boone started 14 games for the 49ers on the offensive line and was named as a Pro Bowl alternate.
To fill open roster spots vacated by Boone and injured safety Ray Ventrone, the 49ers signed kick returner Trindon Holliday and cornerback Cameron Fuller. Holliday was released by the Giants off their injured reserve this summer and played one game with the Bucs before becoming a free agent. Fuller was promoted from the 49ers' practice squad.
