49ers’ C.J. Spillman has hand surgery



After a brutal 2013 season which saw the San Francisco 49ers go deep in the playoffs, many players are still licking and healing their wounds as they prepare for yet another battle in 2014. From T Anthony Davis repairing a torn labrum to ILB NaVorro Bowman repairing his torn MCL/ACL, many of the 49ers are undergoing off-season surgeries and FS C.J. Spillman is no different.

The special-teams ace underwent hand surgery today as he posted a picture via his instagram as he tweeted:

A minor surgery but one that will be closely monitored as the 49ers prepare for training camp. In 2013, Spillman finished with 25 tackles while yet to record an NFL interception.
