The 49ers got a win in New Orleans on Sunday, but the 48-46 shootout took a toll on them physically.
49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan provided updates on players who were injured in the game and the good news was that a couple of them are out for a matter of weeks rather than the rest of the year.
Cornerback Richard Sherman is set to miss a couple of weeks after going for an MRI of his injured hamstring. Defensive end Dee Ford also re-injured his hamstring and Shanahan said he’ll also miss multiple weeks as a result of the injury.
That will leave the 49ers with some shuffling to do on defense for Sunday’s visit from the Falcons.
