San Francisco 49ers: Chris Culliver to Get MRI on Left Knee


According to 49ers’ head coach Jim Harbaugh, Chris Culliver has been scheduled to get an MRI on his left knee. Culliver was apparently running down the field in a coverage drill, and then he fell, getting himself injured. It’s not a very big deal, even if he had to be carted off the floor. One day after Patrick Willis injured his hand, however, this happens. These are the signs of an injury-plagued season.

Culliver wasn’t going to be the starting cornerback, but he was definitely seeing a lot of time last year, and was able to get in some good minutes. He was playing well in training camp, and now this happened. Unfortunately for him, things are looking bad in terms of playing time, but he may be able to come back from this. Hopefully, there won’t be any major injuries to his knee.

It’s not going to be an easy training camp, if there have already been so many injuries. Although Culliver didn’t start for the 49ers, he was ranked 29th in the cornerback position by Pro Football Talk.
