The San Jose Mercury News reports San Francisco 49ers TE Greg Clark has not come along as quickly as hoped in his rehabilitation from hamstring surgery. He remains on the PUP list for the team. Coach Steve Mariucci initially thought Clark could rejoin team practices by late next week. Now it looks like he could miss a second consecutive training camp because of injury.

According to the team's official site, San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator said TE Greg Clark will remain the team's starter, but the team needs to add some depth behind him. "Greg is coming off a really good year," says 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Knapp. "He had career highs in yards and receptions and he stayed healthy all season." Clark's backups are Justin Swift, Terrence Dupree and Brian Jennings. Swift is expected to be given every chance to hang onto his No. 2 TE role. Dupree spent his rookie season on IR with a broken ankle. Jennings, also a long-snapper, saw no action at TE. Knapp also indicated the TE position could see an increased workload this season.
