49ers Place C Eric Heitmann on IR

The San Francisco 49ers have placed center Eric Heitmann on injured reserve, Matthew Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports.

Heitmann's placement on injured reserve clears a roster spot for rookie linebacker Thaddeus Gibson, a fourth-round pick out of Ohio State by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

A four-time captain on offense, Heitmann hadn't appeared in a game for the 49ers this season after fracturing his fibula during training camp and a troublesome neck injury during the season.

Davis Baas will continue to start at center for the 49ers.
