49ers injury report: Carlos Hyde, Torrey Smith, Vance McDonald have leg contusions

New, comments

Jim Tomsula provided some injury updates on Monday. We break down the news on all the leg contusions.

The San Francisco 49ers suffered some bumps and bruises in their Week 2 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, but it does not sound like there are particularly huge issues. Jim Tomsula met with the media and discussed three notable players I imagine will show up on Wednesday's injury report.

RB Carlos Hyde: Tomsula discussed his leg injury. He took a shot to the knee in the first quarter, and had to go to the sideline. Mike Mitchell went low on him, and Hyde's knee did not look like it bent naturally. Thankfully, Hyde returned a few plays later and finished out the half. Tomsula said it looked like Hyde would be ok moving forward. Hyde also suffered a concussion, but was cleared during the game. Tomsula said it was his choice not to put Hyde back in. My guess is he sits or is limited on Wednesday, and then works back in on Thursday and Friday, and is listed as probable.

WR Torrey Smith: He suffered a contusion in the second half, but also seemed in fairly decent shape. I could see him showing up as limited or full on Wednesday's practice participation report, and being probable for Sunday.

TE Vance McDonald: He suffered a knee injury that knocked him out of the game. Tomsula said it was just below the knee, but the x-ray came back negative. I could see him listed as a limited participant on Wednesday, but probable on Friday.

Tomsula did not have updates on Reggie Bush and Bruce Ellington. Bush stayed behind in the Bay Area to work with the training staff, while Ellington was declared inactive after working on the field prior to the game.
