The first quarter could not have gone much worse for the 49ers than it did Thursday night. Not only did the Cowboys outscore them 7-0 and outgain them 98-33, but even worse, the 49ers had four players injured.

Defensive lineman Solomon Thomas was landed on by a teammate, leaving the field and heading straight to the locker room with medical personnel. The 49ers announced a head injury for the third overall choice in 2017.

Tight end George Kittle injured his shoulder, leaving holding his right arm. Running back Matt Breida also injured his shoulder.

Linebacker Malcolm Smith injured his hamstring.

The second quarter didn’t begin much better for the 49ers, as nine seconds in, backup left tackle Garry Gilliam needed medical attention before leaving for the locker room with a head injury.

  1. This guy is one of the many reasons you don’t name someone your general manager who has never had a single day scouting players or working in personnel. Football seemingly is the only profession where things like this occur. Can you imagine the ramifications of this happened in the medical field?

  2. Let’s slow our roll with how great this team is going to be.
    Lots of issues on the D line, secondary is suspect.

    Hope the injuries aren’t serious

  3. Ouch, I hate seeing players injured in the pre-season, especially in division opponents as i’d prefer my team to beat them fair and square with everyone healthy. Tough break for 9er fans. Looks like we can temper 49er optimism/hype based on their first teams performance.

    If this was a regular season game the Boys would have smoked the “paper” champions from Clara.”

    LMAO. The cowgirls can’t smoke pile of leaves. The 49ers had 17 players out and playing a vanilla preseason offense. The cowgirls are going nowhere
