49ers WR Edwards Out After Knee Surgery

SANTA CLARA – (CBS/AP) – 49ers wide receiver Braylon Edwards has undergone a surgical procedure on his injured right knee and will be out for a while, though coach Jim Harbaugh refused to speculate or provide further details.

Edwards limped off with the knee injury after making a 21-yard catch on the 49ers’ third play from scrimmage in a 27-24 overtime loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. It’s a tough blow for San Francisco (1-1) as the team hits the road for two weeks, with a stay in Youngstown, Ohio, between Sunday’s game at Cincinnati and a Week 4 visit to Philadelphia.

Michael Crabtree is expected back on the field against the Bengals after he was inactive last week nursing a troublesome, surgically repaired left foot that he aggravated again in a Week 1 win over the Seahawks.
