WR Bruce Ellington was hurt on a punt return in the second quarter of the San Francisco 49ers' preseason game against the Green Bay Packers. He had started running off the field but then went down to his knee and was slow to get off the field.
The injury may have been more serious than it appeared. Ellington remained on the 49ers bench being examined by team doctors with teammates clearly concerned.

WR DeAndrew White replaced Ellington on punt returns. Ellington's injury would later be reported as a hamstring injury.
