49ers’ defensive end Ronald Blair suffered torn ACL, headed to injured reserve

Nov 12, 2019 at 2:14 PM--


San Francisco 49ers defensive end Ronald Blair made an impressive tackle of running Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson during Monday night's 27-24 loss. Unfortunately, for Blair, the defender didn't get up from the fourth-quarter play.

Blair needed some assistance getting off the field and was noticeably avoiding putting weight on his right leg. The defensive lineman was examined in the medical tent, and then carted to the 49ers locker room for further evaluation before being ruled out of the rest of the game.

Blair was seen using crutches to get around after the loss with his right leg in a heavy brace.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters via a conference call on Tuesday afternoon that Blair suffered a torn ACL and will be placed on season-ending injured reserve.

Blair finishes the season with 21 tackles and three sacks through nine games this season, his fourth with San Francisco since the team made him a fifth-round draft pick out of Appalachian State in 2016.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler polled 50 league executives, coaches, scouts, and players, asking them to identify the NFL's best tight end. The result, as far as the top choice, probably won't come as a surprise to San Francisco 49ers fans. It's George Kittle. But that doesn't mean the top spot was absent of debate. "Voters gave their best 10 to 15 players at a position," explained Fowler, "then we compiled the results and ranked candidates based on number of top-10 votes, composite average, interviews and research. We had several ties, so we broke them by isolating the two-man matchup with additional voting and
