Training camp has claimed another victim.
Tests revealed that 49ers linebacker Scott McKillop suffered a torn ACL and torn patellar tendon in his left knee on Wednesday, according to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee. The team hasn’t determined anything official yet, but those injuries should knock McKillop out for the season.
The second-year linebacker led the 49ers in special teams tackles as a rookie, and looked like a primary backup at inside linebacker behind Takeo Spikes. 2010 third-round draft pick NaVorro Bowman and veteran Matt Wilhelm figure to pick up snaps after McKillop’s tough break.
UPDATE: The team confirmed the injuries.
