In Harbaugh presser he said Morgan has a broken bone in leg not an ankle break. Says doesn't know how long he'll be out until after surgery today.

He's done for the year I think.

The surgery will tell the story. Unless it is a fractured fibula, I would expect he could come back in December. Fibula takes a long time to heal. The blood supply at the lower end of the fib is much less than other bones.

We may not know exactly what happened as the 49ers don't give out much info. However, if they do not put him on IR right away, it will indicate a relatively minor break.

As long as he doesn't go Hearst on us.....

That is good news. They can put in a plate or screws and hold the bone secure while it heals. As long as the location of the fracture does not effect the interphase between the leg bone (tibia or fibula) and the ankle bone (talus) he could be back in 6-8 weeks. Another good thing is that with the fracture line secured, he could also do some conditioning during rehab that he could not do with a sprain. Of course, if it involves the fibula, it could take a little longer. Won't know until after the surgery is completed.

Here are some views of the bones involved. http://www.doereport.com/generateexhibit.php?ID=2543&ExhibitKeywordsRaw=&TL=&A= In this view, the fibula is in the foreground and the tibia (shinbone) is behind. They are both connected to the ankle bone. Other views at the same link.

Just sign Ziegler already, not much of a drop off with him and Josh.

Except Ziggy isn't nearly as good a player, or even in the same conversation as a blocker, so yea, no real drop off.Don't get me wrong, I like Ziggy's speed, but this is a different team this year, no blocky no playee

Good work, dj. Also, it doesn't involve ligaments. He'd surely be out for the season if it was.
Mindi Bach just said, "it certainly sounds like he will be out for the rest of the season." Then Maiocco agreed.....
At the presser Harbaugh dodged the question as to whether or not he thinks Morgan will be back this season. He just wished Josh a speedy recovery.

It was pretty obvious when they carried him off the field.

Right. Hearst broke the fibula.
I wonder if jj stokes is willing to make a comeback

Neither of them are in the operating room. I respect the job they do but they have no credibility to make such an assertion.
