49ers C Weston Richburg Out For Season With Torn Patella

On Monday, 49ers HC Kyle Shanahan announced that C Weston Richburg is out for the season with a torn patellar tendon.

You can expect the 49ers to place Richburg on injured reserve in the coming days and add someone to their roster.

The 49ers will likely turn to Ben Garland as their starting center for the remainder of the season.

Richburg, 28, is a former second-round pick of the Giants back in 2014. He played out the final year of his four-year, $4,877,346 contract with the Giants before agreeing to a five-year, $47.5 million deal with the 49ers that included $28.5 million guaranteed.

Richburg stands to make base salaries of $5.5 million and $6.5 million over the next two years of the agreement.

In 2019, Richburg appeared in 13 games for the 49ers.
