49ers G Joshua Garnett Likely To Miss Multiple Games Following Knee Scope

Tom Pelissero of NFL Media┬áreports that 49ers G Joshua Garnett is facing a six-week recovery after he recently underwent a knee scope. According to Salguero, Garnett will likely to miss “multiple” games while he recovers from this procedure.

Earlier this week, Pelissero┬áreported that Garnett was experiencing pain and swelling in his knee, but added that the 49ers were optimistic that Garnett’s injury is not serious.
