RB Glen Coffee didn't show up to the San Francisco 49ers training camp practice on Friday and no reason was given for his absence. 49ers beat writer Matt Maiocco said in response, "That doesn't sound good."
It's not good -- at least for the 49ers. Coffee released a statement announcing he is retiring from football.
He is just 23 years old and was a 2009 third round pick by the 49ers. There's no word on what specifically caused him to come to this decision.
Head coach Mike Singletary said the decision "came out of the blue" and he appreciated his honesty.
So how do the 49ers fill the void?
Michael Robinson now becomes the No. 2 runner. Singletary says rookie Dixon is "a ways away" from being an NFL runner.
