49ers guard Mike Person seen using crutches after joint practice against Broncos

Aug 16, 2019 at 12:08 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers certainly don't need any more injuries. That's what makes a sight after Friday's joint practice with the Broncos so concerning. Starting guard Mike Person was getting around on crutches and with his left foot in an orthopedic boot, according to multiple reports. Later, he was driven away on a cart.

No one noticed what happened and the 49ers have not yet officially commented on the injury.

Update: The injury might not be serious, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic. There has been no official word from the team, though.

The offensive line is already without starting center Weston Richburg (knee), guard Joshua Garnett (finger), and lost Shon Coleman for the year after the swing tackle suffered a fractured fibula and dislocated ankle during San Francisco's preseason opener against the Dallas Cowboys.

The 49ers made Person a seventh-round draft pick out of Montana State in 2011. He lasted one season with that regime before being released on August 31, 2012.

Person spent time with the Seattle Seahawks, St. Louis Rams, Atlanta Falcons, Kansas City Chiefs, and two stints with the Indianapolis Colts before re-joining the 49ers on May 9, 2018. He started a career-high 16 games at right guard for San Francisco last season and ended the year as the team's third-highest graded offensive lineman and highest-graded guard, according to Pro Football Focus.

Person was scheduled to become a free agent in March before the 49ers signed him to a three-year deal just 10 days before the start of the new league year.

In June, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk created a stink over some offseason comments by Kyle Shanahan. The San Francisco 49ers head coach commented during the team's State of the Franchise event about his desire to get back to that fourth quarter in the Super Bowl and finish the job. Florio felt the comments dismissed the work it takes to get to that point and set unrealistic expectations. Except, Shanahan did note that he was well aware that the journey would not be easy, and that this season will be harder than ever. "That's why all of our guys have got to take this challenge, and we've got to take advantage of this offseason," Shanahan said in June.

The San Francisco 49ers are hoping to sign tight end George Kittle to a long-term extension. The two sides don't sound as though they are very close in the negotiation process, however. NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported earlier this week that the 49ers and Kittle's camp are not "particularly close on anything." Mike Silver of NFL Network seems to be hearing the same thing and on Friday provided an update on Kittle's contract situation. "There remains a pretty significant disconnect philosophically between the 49ers and George Kittle's camp. The 49ers believe they want to reset the tight end market and give him a great tight end deal.
