Source: Kentawn Balmer will return to Niners on Wednesday

The mystery of defensive tackle Kentawn Balmer’s absence from 49ers training camp has been solved.  Sort of.  We think.

Per a league source, coach Mike Singletary granted Balmer a couple of days off to deal with a family issue.  Balmer is expected to return on Wednesday.

Of course, there’s a chance that the family issue unexpectedly will take more time than that.  And there’s also a chance that the team and the player are trying to downplay what could be a bigger issue.

Either way, it looks like there’s a good chance this issue will become a non-issue by Wednesday.
