The San Francisco 49ers continues to suffer from injuries in this offseason. Running back titlist Jerick McKinnon suffered a troubling knee injury during training this Saturday (1). He broke the lateral collateral ligament.
The information was given by journalists Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo, of the ‘NFL Network’.
“He cut through the air. It was the last game of the training. He made a cut in the air and no one was near him. He just fell. It seemed strange. We are concerned about this, but we do not have an MRI, so we are not sure. So he’s going to do it now. But it’s something with the knee. Let’s find out later. We’re nervous about that, for sure, “coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters.
McKinnon will be a big embezzlement for the Niners’ attack. He was expected to play a big role in the Californian team’s attack, being the starter after signing a two-year contract and $ 30 million in March. This was the first day he was participating in the 11-11 drills. You can watch NFL live stream free football game from here.
