Report: 49ers DT Glenn Dorsey tears biceps, to miss season
The 49ers got some bad news Saturday when it was reported that Glenn Dorsey will miss the 2014 season.
Dorsey was the No. 5 overall draft pick of the Chiefs in 2008, but he never became a superstar, never accumulating more than two sacks in a season. He was solid, but not a star. Not a bust, but also not a breakout player.

"Someone like Glenn Dorsey," Harbaugh said in March. "Glenn was the (No. 5) pick in the draft. Maybe not living up to someone's expectations there comes to the San Francisco 49ers and has a tremendous year. ... It's just a powerful opportunity, a powerful motivator. ...
"Like an Etch-A-Sketch. Lifting a page of the Etch-A-Sketch and write a whole new history for yourself."
