Not all of the news surrounding the San Francisco 49ers organized team activities (OTAs) has been positive.
Here, I focus on five of the biggest issues that have arisen since OTAs began two weeks ago.
On one hand, San Francisco can breathe a sigh of relief that none of its key players suffered a major injury, like Michael Crabtree did last year when he tore his Achilles.
On the other hand, unsolved contract disputes could put the 49ers in an impossible position, as they have just $5.75 million in cap space, per CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco.
As we all know, performance in OTAs isn't a deal-breaker. That's why only one of the following five slides focuses on performance.
The slideshow is dedicated to those players who aren't participating due to injuries and contract demands.
