The San Francisco 49ers are currently holding onto a 10-0 lead against the Seattle Seahawks, and are playing without Pro Bowl tight end George Kittle. They could be without another offensive weapon for the remainder of the divisional battle.

Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, who has been with the 49ers for just three games after a trade with the Denver Broncos, left the game with a rib injury and is listed as "questionable" to return.

Sanders left for the 49ers locker room at Levi's Stadium with 8:20 remaining in the first half of play.

He isn't the only player injured in the game.

Defensive tackle D.J. Jones is "questionable" to return due to a groin injury, and starting center Weston Richburg is having his left hand examined by the 49ers' medical staff. He was replaced by Ben Garland.

Update: Richburg went to the 49ers locker room to undergo an X-ray on his hand.

Update 2: Richburg has returned to the game. Sanders and Jones have been downgraded and ruled "out."
