San Francisco 49ers veteran tackle Joe Staley left Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings during the first quarter with a knee injury. He was replaced by second-year player John Theus. Staley remained on the sidelines following his exit from the game and didn't appear to be showing any signs of pain. The team's medical staff didn't seem too concerned.

Following the 32-31 loss, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan also did not seem too concerned about the injury and felt that it was nothing serious. Of course, the team will run its typical barrage of tests on Staley on Monday following their arrival home.

"I think Joe's going to be alright," Shanahan said. "We'll look at him more tomorrow. He definitely wanted to come back in and there was something up with him. We'll check on him more but I feel pretty optimistic about him."

It is likely that Staley will have two weeks to rest as the team closes out the preseason and prepares for the Carolina Panthers on September 10. Regardless of his health, Staley was unlikely to play during the team's final preseason game on Thursday – a home matchup against the San Diego Chargers.

John Lynch discusses how Dre Greenlaw's injury impacts 49ers plan at linebacker

By Marc Adams

The San Francisco 49ers defense was smothering the Kansas City Chiefs offense in Super Bowl LVIII. Chiefs star QB Patrick Mahomes was struggling, and tight end Travis Kelce was visibly frustrated, even appearing to push head coach Andy Reid on the sideline. It looked as if the 49ers might finally win that elusive sixth Super Bowl. And then it happened. While running back onto the field, linebacker Dre Greenlaw slipped and tore his Achilles. And while one can argue whether or not that injury cost the 49ers the Super Bowl, it certainly had a major impact, as Kelce, now mostly being guarded by Oren Burks, became a major player in Kansas City's victory. Greenlaw's injury, without question, hurt the 49ers bid to win Super Bowl LVIII. But how will the injury affect the
