After dealing with several injuries in 2020, the 49ers have more in 2021.

San Francisco announced on Tuesday morning that offensive lineman Justin Skule tore his ACL and that safety Tarvarius Moore tore his Achilles during Monday’s practice. Both are depth pieces who filled in as starters over the last couple of seasons.

A sixth-round pick in the 2019 draft, Skule has appeared in 31 games with 12 starts over the last two years. He started four games in 2020, two of which came at left tackle for Trent Williams.

Moore was a third-round pick in 2018 and has played in all 48 regular-season games since he was selected. He started eight games last year, playing a majority of defensive and special teams snaps for San Francisco.

  1. @ real football fan
    How can the training staff be responsible for torn ligaments. What can be done to stop that.

  2. If it’s not the training staff, then the question is the type of practices run by the coaching staff. By the way, properly developed musculature helps prevent ligament strain, and trainers are integral with player muscle development.

  3. Additionally, trainers and medical staff make sure players are doing proper stretching and flexibility exercises, properly hydrated, balanced diet, and not overly fatigued.

  4. For the last 25 years in the NFL specifically, the following injuries have been popping up with alarming regularity: ACL/MCL, Achillies, Torn Pectorals, Torn biceps and Lisfranc issues.

    Are the players using something that makes the muscles grow larger than ever before therefore overpowering the tendons and ligaments? Sure seems so!

  5. Face it Faithful, we’re forever cursed by the injury monster. I personally am getting numb to injury news. I just accept that whatever starting lineup I envision for the season will only happen on paper in April.
