Braylon Edwards Has Undisclosed Knee Procedure, Out Indefinitely

San Francisco 49ers Head Coach Jim Harbaugh spoke with the media Wednesday afternoon at the team's headquarters in Santa Clara, and reportedly stated that wide receiver Braylon Edwards had "a little procedure" on his injured right knee that will leave him "out for a little bit" according to the Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows via twitter.

Edwards injured the knee early in their 27-24 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, leaving the Niners receiving core full of holes as their other top WR Michael Crabtree missed the entire game due to his nagging foot.  Harbaugh did admit that he expects Crabs to be ready to go this week out in Cincinnati against the Bengals, which will undoubtedly help out with Edwards on the sideline; while give rookie Kyle Williams some extra time on the field as well. 

The Niners' Scott Kegley also reported that veteran cornerback Shawntae Spencer will see some more action this week after finally getting his hamstring healthy enough to play, missing almost all of the preseason and regular season thus far. Tarell Brown and Tramaine Brock undoubtedly need some assistance in the secondary, as was shown by the Cowboys game, which hopefully will come in the form of Spencer this week.
