SAN FRANCISCO (CBS Sports) — If your favorite part of the second Mighty Ducks movie was the ‘Knuckle Puck,’ then you might want to tune in to the San Francisco 49ers final preseason game on Thursday at 7 p.m. on KPIX 5. That’s where Niners punter Andy Lee is hoping to unveil the ‘Knuckle Punt.’

If the 49ers find themselves in a fourth down situation around midfield, Lee plans on introducing the world to his unique kick.

“It’s definitely something I want to do in a game to see how it actually happens in a live situation,” Lee said. “In practice, you can do things and you can mimic as much as you can, but you never really know how a new thing you’re going to do is going to react in a game situation. So I’d love to hopefully be able to pull it out and try it and see if it’s something I can work in my regular routine.”
