6 minutes ago - by Michael Erler - Harbaugh defends play that Morgan was hurt onCoach Jim Harbaugh on the decision to go for it instead of kicking a field goal up 41-3 late in the game, on a play where WR Joshua Morgan injured his ankle: "You gotta play. You can't just take a knee with four minutes to play. It could've been a run play, but Josh was competing, (QB Colin Kaepernick ) was competing." 49ers RapidReports
Man i love our coach!!
Sounds like a sprain
Good to hear. Hopefully he can be back after the bye.
well.... looking at the play where Morgan got hurt, i was really sad as he was our best complete receiver interms of running routes, 3rd down catches, and esp run blocking on sweeps. Looking at the injury as a physician, it could be one of few things
1. the way his leg got caught, worse case scenario he has a broken fibula with ligamentous injury. same thing Aldon smith had in college and Norris had few weeks prior. max healing time 3-5 weeks. this is worst case scenario as a WR needs to make sharp cuts and this could be painful
2. high ankle sprain > 2-4 week recovery but lingers for whole year
3. microtear with inflammation and swelling > 1-2 weeks
hopefully with bye week coming, this allows young guys to get chance to showcase talents and Morgan can come in and do what he does after bye without missing a beat!
he will have 3 weeks to recoup before game against cleveland. Good thing is next game against Lions who we will be playing on short rest after monday night game against tought D in bears (bucs were slow today after their exhausiting monday night game), and at home against cleveland where I dont think we need him much. But we def need him for game against redskins on Nov 6!
