The Facts: Following up on a previous item ... The 49ers on Wednesday signed Andrus to fill in for injured Joe Nedney.
Diehards Line:This is Andrus' second tour with the 49ers. The club signed him for the finale last season after injuries to Nedney and Ricky Schmitt left the 49ers without kicker for the final game of the season against St. Louis Rams. Andrus made all four of his extra points. Andrus also attended training camp with the 49ers this summer. He won a competition Wednesday at the 49ers' practice facility that involved free agents Garrett Lindholm and Swayze Waters. Nedney will miss at least one game after an MRI examination revealed Nedney has a right knee strain and bone bruise on his plant leg.
