The 49ers were already undergoing significant structural changes, now the injuries are starting to pile up.
According to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, guard Joshua Garnett probably won’t be ready for the start of the regular season because of a knee problem that requires surgery. It’s not believed to be an ACL problem, but the 2016 first-rounder is expected to miss some time.
“I know there’s some stuff in his knee we’re probably going to have to clean up,” 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said. “I don’t think it’s anything long-term, but it’s going to be a little bit of time.”
