Chip Kelly gives updates on Vance McDonald and Daniel Kilgore injuries

Dec 14, 2016 at 10:38 AM--


On Monday, the San Francisco 49ers placed TE Vance McDonald on injured reserve. The next day, the 49ers placed C Daniel Kilgore on injured reserve. Both players were injured on Sunday against the New York Jets.

Today, 49ers head coach Chip Kelly gave an update on both players' injuries. He was asked where the players might be once the team's offseason activities begin. "I don't know that now," Kelly answered. "I know there's a break with Vance and I think surgery is scheduled with Kilgore."

Kelly was asked what exactly McDonald broke. "I think it's his scapula, but I'm not 100-percent sure on that."

Kelly confirmed that Kilgore suffered a hamstring injury and that it would require surgery. He was asked about surgery being required on a hamstring injury and if it was torn. "I would imagine," Kelly said as he laughed. "I don't think it's exploratory."

When San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan jumped on KNBR this afternoon, he was immediately asked if his team had put out an ad for running backs yet. Shanahan laughed and responded, "We thought about it. It got pretty dire there for a little bit." The 49ers lost several running backs during Sunday's win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Elijah Mitchell, Trey Sermon, and JaMycal Hasty all left the game with injuries. Mitchell returned, but only after the other two were sidelined. The team was already without Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson. Hasty is expected to land on injured reserve. Mitchell is dealing with a knee injury and has not practiced this week. Sermon is in the concussion protocol and has been limited during practices. The way things

Next man up, as they say. The San Francisco 49ers are being tested early this season. Earlier this week, the team learned that it was losing starting cornerback Jason Verrett for the season after the defender suffered a torn ACL during Week 1. After that, it was revealed that the 49ers would be without running back Raheem Mostert for the remainder of the year. He will undergo season-ending knee surgery. That's a significant contributor on each side of the football. Another significant loss was revealed today. However, that one is not believed to be season-ending. More on that in a moment because before that report surfaced, All-Pro tight end George Kittle shared his thoughts on the injury issues that seem to be plaguing the 49ers early.

At one point in the game against the Philadelphia Eagles, the San Francisco 49ers were down to newly acquired running back Trenton Cannon on the depth chart. Every other running back, at some point during the 17-11 win, sustained an injury. Even fullback Kyle Juszczyk was slow to get to the sideline after dealing with a leg cramp. Obviously, that one is not serious, but head coach Kyle Shanahan did provide updates on the others. The first running back to exit the game was Elijah Mitchell, who has been thrust into a starting role due to the season-ending injury to Raheem Mostert. Mitchell returned to the game after medical staff examined him for what was reported as a shoulder injury. Several other injuries to running backs occurring after his probably played a part in the
