Culliver was injured Thursday during a non-contact drill. Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said Friday that the loss of the third-year veteran "puts stress" on a cornerback group that faltered late last season and in the playoffs during San Francisco's run to the Super Bowl.
Hall of Fame today
CANTON, Ohio -- Those Super Bowl rings will have a blinding shine to them at Saturday night's Pro Football Hall of Fame inductions.
From a championship coach to linemen on both sides of the ball, the 2013 class features an enviable resume of success: Bill Parcells, winner of two NFL titles as a coach and master of the franchise turnaround; Jonathan Ogden, one of the premier offensive tackles of his time; Larry Allen, to whom the same accolades can be applied, and a 1995 champion; Warren Sapp, an outstanding defensive tackle with a personality as big as any football stadium -- and a 2002 champ; Dave Robinson, a major cog in Green Bay's championship machine under Vince Lombardi, winning the first two Super Bowls; and Curley Culp, one of the original pass-rushing demons at defensive tackle who got his ring with the 1969 Chiefs. Only wide receiver Cris Carter, merely No. 4 in career receptions and TD catches, is the only member of this year's class who never won a title.
Quite a group for the Hall's 50th anniversary celebration, which began Friday with a record 120 hall members expected to attend today's ceremonies.
