49ers’ Kwon Alexander undergoing surgery to repair biceps injury

Feb 14, 2020 at 12:08 PM--

It turns out that a pectoral injury wasn't the only thing San Francisco 49ers linebacker Kwon Alexander played through during this past NFL postseason. He is undergoing surgery on Friday to repair a biceps injury that he played through during the playoffs and Super Bowl LIV, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

As Rapoport states, Alexander is expected to fully recover in time for the 2020 season. The report of the biceps injury is new.

The star linebacker suffered a torn pectoral muscle during a Week 9 win over the Arizona Cardinals. The injury landed Alexander on injured reserve on November 5, and he wasn't expected to play again during the 2019 season.

Alexander returned for the playoffs, and the 49ers' Super Bowl run. He appeared in all three postseason games and recorded two tackles and a pass defensed in those matchups.

Alexander finished the regular season with 34 tackles, 0.5 sacks, four passes defensed, an interception, and a forced fumble through eight starts. He is preparing to enter his sixth NFL season and second with San Francisco.

The linebacker restructured his contract in November, following his injury, saving the 49ers over $8 million in salary-cap space this year.

The San Francisco 49ers and star tight end George Kittle are currently working on a contract extension. The two sides have been for awhile. No one outside of the franchise knows how close the two sides are. What is known is the type of money Kittle is seeking. Kittle wants to be paid like a top offensive tackle or wide receiver. His agent went public with this info nearly a month ago. Since then there has been silence from both sides. They could be far apart. Heck, they could have already agreed considering the team managed to keep DeForest Buckner's permission to seek a trade and head coach Kyle Shanahan's extension secrets for MONTHS. It wouldn't be surprising if they aren't close however. This is because the 49ers hold every ounce of leverage in this situation
