Dorsey will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of the injury, but it clearly doesn’t sound good for him.
Earlier on in the first quarter, Dorsey went down with the injury and was carted to the locker room, so it was clear that this could be a serious issue for him.
Dorsey, 30, second year of his three-year, $6.075 million contract that included a $2.075 signing bonus. He’ll make a base salary of $1.5 million this season and another $1.8 million next year.
This season, Dorsey has recorded 18 tackles and no sacks for the 49ers’ defense over the course of nine games. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 49 defensive end in a 3-4 defense out of 57 qualifying players.
