Street suffered a torn ACL during a pre-draft workout with the Giants in 2018, but the 49ers still took a chance on the NC State product and nabbed him with a fourth-round pick last year. Though he was cleared for practice near the end of his rookie campaign, he ultimately did not see any game action.
He showed some flashes in the preseason this year, and in San Francisco’s preseason tilt against the Broncos on August 19, Street posted five tackles and 1.5 sacks in 43 snaps. Unfortunately, his regular season debut will have to wait at least another year.
Head coach Kyle Shanahan said, “[h]e’s battled through his knee all year. He’s had some knee tendinitis throughout camp – a little similar to Dee Ford. He’s been trying to battle through it and get a spot here. We decided (Monday) that he can’t do it any more.”
