Description: Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports there's "no question" that Clements will maintain his starting CB job this season.
Insight: Clements was benched during last season, fueling speculation the 49ers could cut ties with him or at least keep him on the bench. Since he is due $7.25 million in 2011, so this could be a make-or-break season for him. (Rapid Draft.com)

Description: CSN Bay Area reports Clements is forefeiting a $500,000 workout bonus by working out away from the 49ers in Arizona.
Insight: This seems like a poor financial decision, but if Clements has found a workout program he's comfortable with you really can't blame him for sticking with it. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Matt Maiocco of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports there is "no question" Clements will be back with the 49ers next season.
Insight: Clements was benched and then injured in 2009, and is due to make $6 million in base salary next season. It would not be a surprise if the 49ers brought in some competition for him this offseason, perhaps via April's draft. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: Matt Maiocco of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports, via Twitter, that Clements will return to the 49ers next season and he will play CB.
Insight: Clements missed significant time this season with a shoulder injury, but had lost his starting job to Tarell Brown prior to being injured. He apparently will not be moved to safety, and could regain his starting job with a strong training camp and preseason. (SportsBuff.com)

Description: According to Matt Maiocco of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, via Twitter, Clements (shoulder) has been ruled out for Week 17 against St. Louis.

Description: According to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, the 49ers are not expecting to get Clements (right shoulder) back until Week 17 at the earliest.

Description: According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Clements suffered a fractured right shoulder blade in Sunday's loss to Indianapolis.
