Jerick McKinnon will get MRI on knee

AP

49ers running back Jerick McKinnon didn’t leave the field immediately after hurting his right knee during Sunday’s practice and said he felt fine, but that doesn’t mean he’s totally out of the woods.

The 49ers said after practice was over that McKinnon will be having an MRI to assess any damage.

Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports McKinnon grabbed the back of his knee while hobbling after a run early in the practice. McKinnon was not contacted during the play.

Washington running back Derrius Guice was diagnosed with a torn ACL after an MRI on Friday. Guice was injured in Thursday night’s game and, like McKinnon, said he felt well in the immediate aftermath of the injury.

The 49ers are currently without Matt Breida in the backfield due to a separated shoulder. Raheem Mostert and Joe Williams are next up on the running back depth chart.

  1. Mostert is way underrated and built the same way as McKinnon. He could fill in for him without missing a step.

    Vikes fans will always love the jet.

    It’s too bad the guy didn’t have a good QB or Oline. Could you imagine him with Brady or Brees?

  3. Niners over paid this guy. He never was a starter and never will be. Even Vikings Rock Thomas is better than him. Time for a trad, Niners.

  4. Niners over paid this guy. He never was a starter and never will be. Even Vikings Roc Thomas is better than him. Time for a trade, Niners.

    You are clueless. They paid him that much because other teams were in the ballpark for that amount. You can point to his 3.5 YPC his year as a starter, but Adrian Peterson was averaging 1.9 YPC behind that horrible OL. And Jimmy G is probably better than Keenum.

    Easy, tiger. Set the beer down.

  7. If he’s on the shelf for the year the 49ers season is over, Jimmy G is going to get destroyed behind that line without a legit run game. This is why u need 3 good backs, preferably 3 good pass catching backs as their rival Arizona does in David Johnson, Chase Edmonds, TJ Logan and DJ Foster.

  8. As a Vikings fan I loved Jet. Great player…but he is not the player the 49ers are paying him to be. Which is a workhourse back. He is a great 3rd down back since he can catch and block very well, but he is too small to be a bell cow. He gets hurt when he takes too many carries. Wish him nothing but the best. I don’t know why the 49ers didn’t just keep Hyde.
