Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports that 49ers WR Jalen Hurd is undergoing an MRI morning after suffering what is believed to be a “major knee injury” during Sunday’s practice.
According to Garafolo, the fear is that Hurd suffered a torn ACL, which would cost him the entire 2020 season.
Matt Barrows notes that Hurd was running by himself on the side of the field when he went down in a heap yesterday.
Hurd, 24, is a former third-round pick of the 49ers back in 2019. He’s in the second year of his four-year, $2.3 million contract with the 49ers.
Unfortunately, Hurd suffered a back injury last year that led to him being placed on injured reserve.
During his college career at Tennessee and Baylor, Hurd rushed for 2,844 yards on 637 carries to go along with 136 receptions for 1,438 yards receiving and 33 touchdowns over the course of four seasons and 45 games.
We’ll have more regarding Hurd as the news is available.
