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."

San Francisco 49ers running back JaMycal Hasty went down with an injury in the fourth quarter of today's loss to the New Orleans Saints. He later left for the locker room to be examined. The injury left the 49ers with Jerick McKinnon and Austin Walter as the only available running backs. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after the game and said that Hasty suffered a broken collarbone. That means he'll probably miss a significant amount of time and will likely become yet another 49ers player to land on injured reserve. Shanahan is hoping to get running backs Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Tevin Coleman (knee) back after the bye week. "I'm hoping they are," Shanahan said of their chances to return in time for the 49ers' Week 12
