49ers cornerback Nate Clements suffered a broken shoulder blade against the Colts, putting the rest of his season in jeopardy.

Players sometimes return from this injury without missing the rest of the season. Much will depend on the nature of the break. If the shoulder blade broke into multiple pieces or broke off near the joint, Clements could face a more complicated rehabilitation.

The 49ers have pretty good depth at cornerback now that Shawntae Spencer is healthy and playing well.
