QB Josh Johnson among those cut by 49ers

By JANIE McCAULEY, AP Sports Writer

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The reuniting of Jim Harbaugh and quarterback Josh Johnson didn't last long.

Johnson was among 21 players cut by the San Francisco 49ers on Friday as the defending NFC West champions trimmed their roster to the 53-man limit for the start of the regular season -- a day after he threw a pair of touchdown passes in a 35-3 victory over the San Diego Chargers in the final preseason game.

Harbaugh took a chance on the undersized Johnson at San Diego, developing the 5-foot-11, 145-pound Oakland Tech prep star into a record-setting college QB.
