The San Francisco 49ers dealt with several injuries this past Sunday against the Oakland Raiders, but it appears a couple of them are not too bad. Chris Culliver and Marcus Martin both suffered knee injuries, with Culliver's happening in the first half, and Martin's in the second half. Both avoided tearing their ACL, although their status for Sunday remains to be seen.
Culliver spoke with the media on Tuesday, informing Cam Inman that his MRI came back negative. Culliver suffered the injury to his left knee, which is the same knee that suffered a torn ACL. He told the media he was sore, and taking it day-to-day. Dontae Johnson replaced him in the starting lineup, with Leon McFadden coming in as the nickel back.
Marcus Martin was seen wearing a brace, but said he was "feeling good, moving good." When he got hurt, Joe Looney came in at the center position. Looney has operated as the backup center, while Dillon Farrell is the the third string center.
The 49ers will release their first practice participation report of the day Wednesday afternoon. At that point we'll get a better idea of where each player stands for this Sunday's matchup with the Seattle Seahawks.
