Player injuries could weaken the San Francisco 49ers this regular season; at least on the offensive side. Running back Jerick McKinnon has been placed on injury reserve after suffering a torn ACL a few days ago while in practice. Head coach Kyle Shanahan is not pleased at all after he selected McKinnon as the perfect running back for the team in the off-season. This back received a four-year contract deal worth $30 million with the 49ers. This injury has therefore devastated the coaches and the team. This back came from Minnesota and despite his dismal performance with the Vikings, the 49ers had great hope in him this season.
On Thursday night, the San Francisco 49ers came from behind to win their NFL preseason game against the Dallas Cowboys. Even though the 49ers squad has already beefed up their practice sessions, they still lack a full house because of injuries, starting with running back Matt Breida and tight end George Kittle who are nursing shoulder injuries. After contracting the injuries on Thursday, both players will be out until the end of preseason, but they should be fit to play when the 2018 NFL season kicks off as fans await 49ers odds on next game.
Even before their Sunday game was halfway, the San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin suffered a huge hit to his head executed by Blake Countess, the Rams defensive back. The 49ers’offensive tackle Joe Staley, who only saw his teammate lying helpless while struggling to rise up, started calling for their emergency personnel as he hurried towards Goodwin. According to 49ers injury report, the concussion would end the receiver’s further contribution to the 49ers team this season because the concussion looked more serious.
The San Francisco 49ers are riding high right now after winning their third consecutive game, thanks to the heroics of recently acquired quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and the consistency of kicker Robbie Gould, who made all six of his field goal attempts on Sunday.
