The San Francisco 49ers’ injury woes from Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs continue. The big news was Jimmy Garoppolo getting carted off the field with what many fear is an ACL tear, but just as concerning is cornerback Richard Sherman, whom is due to get an MRI Monday according to the beat writers. The injury in question was sustained towards the end of the 1st half.
Sherman needed assistance to and from the locker room during halftime and did not see the field in the second half. The injury is said to be a calf injury and not initially diagnosed as an achilles injury. Sherman was seen after the game “in pain in a boot,” according to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport.
And so the hits just keep coming. Along with Garoppolo’s possible season-ending injury and Sherman’s calf, the 49ers are getting hit hard with the injury bug. Adrian Colbert left the game with a hip injury, Reuben Foster dodged a bullet from a stinger he received in the second half, and Jimmie Ward is still being evaluated for what looks like cramps.
The 49ers are having a hard time staying healthy and Kansas City may have been one of the biggest bloodbaths of the season.
