The 49ers have taken a hard hit on their offensive line.

Joe Staley, San Francisco’s All-Pro left tackle, exited today’s game against the Rams with a knee injury in the first quarter. The 49ers quickly announced that Staley would not return to the game, which may turn out to be a bad sign about how severe the injury is.

Staley suffered the injury when he was hit low from the side while blocking. He stayed on the ground for several minutes.

The 49ers moved right tackle Alex Boone over to the left side to replace Staley, and backup Joe Looney came in to play right tackle.

  1. 7 major penalties so far on the Rams.

    The Rams defense has been playing dirty all first half….a true sign of desperation seeing as how their season is done after this game.

  2. 49ers offensive line is now made of glass after a couple of years of no injuries.

    4 or 5 sacks now given up in the first half LT Alex Boone, Snyder, Joe Looney is pretty rough to close the year.

  3. The Rams playing dirty? Yeah, right. Try, The 49ers getting bailed out on bogus calls. And Boldin acting classy like we expect from the above reproach 49ers.

  4. Good. The rest of the league has done nothing but celebrate Aaron Rodgers’ injury. As a Packers fan, it’s our turn to celebrate injuries to players on other teams.

    Good riddance, Joe!

  5. “The 49ers moved right tackle Alex Boone over to the left side to replace Staley, and backup Joe Looney came in to play right tackle.”

    Boone plays RG and Looney took over at RG.

  6. Look at you guys. I’m sure you hope are good people Monday through Saturday.

    Nobody should ever celebrate an injury. As a true fan I want the best on both sides of the line of scrimmage.

    As for Mr. Rogers, I don’t think anyone celebrated his injury. I think you are just bitter boy… You guy spoke out hind quarters and was thoroughly embarrassed by Detroit.

    Really? A-Rod is a great player. There may be a segment of fans that did cheer, but don’t pain the vast majority of fans that did not. Hope he gets back and playing championshiop football, soon.

  8. To the fans who cheered Rodgers getting hurt………and posted such
    Karma sucks
    I hope Joe is ok

    A-A-ron is a great QB, and I would never cheer his injury. But he does welsh on bets quite frequently.

    I’ve never heard or read anyone say that they applauded the injury to Aaron Rodgers. You cheering the injury of another human being makes you a low life. You must be a bitter person.

  11. OK, OK.

    “Cheering” injuries is a bit extreme. Would “laughing about” them be a more fair thing to say?
