49ers' Bruce May Play in St. Louis

By  | 

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - Isaac Bruce's final NFL game might be back in the very place that he spent his most productive years.

Mike Singletary says the 37-year-old Bruce's 49ers wide receiver mates approached the coach to say they wanted the 16th-year veteran
to play Sunday at St. Louis in the team's last game.

Bruce has been inactive the past five contests and for six in all for San Francisco. He says it would be special to play, but doesn't want it to be an honorary thing.

Singletary called it a "very good chance" Bruce would be on the field. While Bruce said he hasn't decided for sure whether he will retire after the season, he expects to make an announcement soon.

He was a four-time Pro Bowler in his 14 seasons with the Rams.
