Not the best preseason for the 49ers - another reason not to put too much weight on those predictions written in early summer about who will win the Super Bowl

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver tore his ACL in practice Thursday and will be out for the season, NFL.comís Ian Rapoport reported Thursday.

The news is a significant blow for the 49ers. Culliver was carted off the field after suffering the injury during the teamís afternoon practice on Thursday. He had been taken to Stanford hospital for an MRI.

Culliverís injury is part of a string of early-season bumps and bruises for the 49ers. Star linebacker Patrick Willis was injured on Wednesday, reportedly breaking his hand. He was wearing a cast on his hand Thursday. Star wide receivers Michael Crabtree and Mario Manningham are also expected to miss significant time this season.

Couldn't have happened to a nicer, more open-minded guy.
