Clements out for Niners 'probably the situation'

Things haven't been easy for the San Francisco 49ers this year, and despite playing a winless Panthers team on Sunday, they might not get easier -- looks like starting cornerback Nate Clements could miss the game in Charlotte.

"Yes, that's probably the situation," Mike Singletary said after Clements participated in limited practice on Friday.

Clement's likely absence means Will James gets the nod, and Steve Smith, returning from injury, should see a boost in production and targets.

It probably doesn't help, either, that the Niners are en route to London for their Week 8 game against Denver in the now annual Fog Bowl.

Lest you laugh at the travel aspect, think about this little factoid that Darin Gantt dropped on Twitter Saturday morning -- the 49ers are 7-38 since 2003 in 1 PM EST games (after all, that's like kicking off at 10 AM their time).

Additionally, Carolina's been the stopping point for two teams on their way across the pond each of the last two years -- the Saints swung by in 2008 and the Buccaneers in 2009, with the Panthers winning both games.

So, yeah, really, they probably shouldn't even bother playing; we can just move the Panthers to 1-5 now.

Is this really a bad thing for SF?  All of Clements' positives are negated by his penchant for stupid mental errors.
