Former Murray State kicker Andrus signs with 49ers

Former Murray State kicker Shane Andrus is getting another shot at the NFL. Andrus told us early Wednesday afternoon he has signed with the San Francisco 49ers.

The 49ers are in need of help with kicker Joe Nedney out this week with an injury. Andrus kicked for the 49ers at the end of last season when Nedney was hurt. He did well enough to get an invite to training camp this year, but was beat out by the veteran Nedney. This isn't expected to be a long-term situation, but it does give Andrus another chance to show what he can do in the NFL.

This will be the fourth time Andrus has earned an NFL job, the second-times with the 49ers.

San Francisco hosts Tampa Bay this week.
