49ers place safety Adrian Colbert into the concussion protocol

SANTA CLARA – The 49ers nearly got away clean on the injury front from Sunday’s 25-23 win over the Titans with two notable exceptions. Free safety Adrian Colbert was put in the concussion protocol after evidencing some symptoms on Sunday night and Monday morning.

Wide receiver Aldrick Robinson is also in the protocol and aggravated a wrist injury against Tennessee.

Colbert’s been a revelation at free safety as a seventh-round pick. He has range, hitting ability and a natural sense for where the play is going.

However, Colbert’s big hitting ability plus his slight frame are a concern for his long-term durability. Colbert has already sustained two earlier injuries this year when he missed the Indianapolis loss with a hamstring strain and then broke his thumb in the first quarter of his debut as a starter in the Giants’ win.

Other than those injuries the 49ers should be fairly healthy for Sunday’s game against the tough-minded Jaguars.
