Report: 49ers lose Jerick McKinnon for season with ACL tear

49ers logo

Jerick McKinnon got the worst possible news on Saturday, and the San Francisco 49ers lost someone who was expected to be a big part of their offense.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, McKinnon suffered a torn ACL during Saturday’s practice and will miss the entire season.

It’s a brutal blow for the Niners. McKinnon was brought in to be San Francisco’s starting running back and dealt with a preseason knee injury, but he appeared to be healthy and avoided the worst before sustaining the ugly-looking injury in Saturday’s practice. To lose him this late in the preseason is a bitter blow.

Expect veteran Alfred Morris to get the bulk of the carries in McKinnon’s absence, with Matt Breida also in the mix.
