Reggie Bush believed to have torn ACL, per Ian Rapoport

New, comments

Welp, the running back depth chart might have taken a big hit on Sunday. We break down news surrounding Reggie Bush's knee injury, and Mike Davis' hand injury.

The San Francisco 49ers season has been heading south in a hurry, and it took at least one, and maybe two more hits. Reggie Bush left the game with a knee injury after slipping on the concrete near the stands after a punt return. Ian Rapoport is now reporting it is believed Bush suffered a torn ACL. He will undergo an MRI to confirm the information. Jim Tomsula will meet with the media on Monday, but it remains to be seen when we will get word on the MRI.

The 49ers deactivated Carlos Hyde due to his foot injury, with Jim Tomsula saying he was dealing with soreness. That left the team starting Reggie Bush, and playing Mike Davis and Kendall Gaskins. After Bush went down, Davis took over the feature role. Davis subsequently injured his hand and did not return to the game. Someone asked Tomsula if Davis suffered a fracture, and Tomsula said they were looking into that.

If Davis has a hand fracture, that leaves Kendall Gaskins as the only healthy running back. The team released Jarryd Hayne on Saturday to add Gaskins (Tomsula said they wanted a power back on the roster). If he clears waivers, I imagine the team would probably try and bring him back to the 53-man roster. The team also brought in Pierre Thomas for a workout a week and a half ago. There are some other teams in need of a running back, but Thomas could be a quick addition if needed.
