Golden Nuggets: Too. Many. Injuries

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Wednesday, October 3rd 2018

The one thing growing aggravating about the San Francisco 49ers is the injuries. Too. Many. Injuries. This team has clearly been snakebit on the injury front with them just trying to find bodies to get them through the weekend.

This is a blessing in disguise for the younger players, as it gets them some playing time, but it still hurts productivity. It has me wondering what the deal is. Is this a conditioning problem? A style problem? Or just bad luck for the snake?

I’m going with the latter. This just happens. The 49ers have had years where they were very fortunate to dodge massive injuries. This season is not one of them. The amount they are getting though certainly is a bit concerning isn’t it? What do you think?

While you think about it, here’s some links:
