Curtis Holcomb, a former FAMU football standout, is on crutches after rupturing his left Achilles tendon during a conditioning test with the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday. The injury is likely to sideline him for his rookie season.
The former FAMU cornerback was set to compete for special teams positions as well as a spot in the defensive backfield.
The 49ers selected Holcomb in the seventh round of the NFL Draft.
In other news, Holcomb’s former teammate Philip Sylvester has reported for duty in Atlanta and received his official spot (pictured below) in the Falcons locker room. Check out the photo, courtesy of FAMU Athletics, after the jump.
