MRI reveals 49ers CB Jamar Taylor suffered a torn ACL, ending his season

Dec 1, 2020 at 6:42 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers will add another name to their injured reserve list. The team was concerned that cornerback Jamar Taylor suffered a season-ending torn ACL on Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams, and those fears were confirmed on Monday.

According to Matt Barrows of The Athletic, an MRI on Monday revealed that the defensive back indeed suffered a torn ACL, ending his season.


Taylor suffered the left knee injury late in the first half of the team's 23-20 victory. He appeared to be in significant pain and needed to be carted off the field to the SoFi Stadium locker room for further evaluation.

Taylor becomes the fourth 49ers player this year to see his season end due to an ACL injury. Wide receiver Jalen Hurd suffered the injury during training camp and defensive linemen Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas during Week 2.

"He's been fantastic," defensive coordinator Robert Saleh said of Taylor earlier this month. "He is a veteran. He is a pro. He is incredibly smart. He's very deliberate in the way he works and he practices, and that's why he has the success he has."

Taylor finishes the season with 22 tackles, two tackles for a loss, two quarterback hits, a sack, two interceptions, and three passes defensed through eight game appearances.

Mike McDaniel started working with Kyle Shanahan with the Houston Texans. He is one of the San Francisco 49ers head coach's most trusted assistants, serving as the team's run-game coordinator during his first four seasons in Santa Clara. In January, McDaniel was promoted to offensive coordinator, becoming the first coach under Shanahan to hold that title. "Immediately, you're trying to prove your worth and prove the people right that have really invested in you and invested in your career, and given you opportunities, and et cetera, et cetera," McDaniel recently told 49ers.com reporter Keiana Martin. "It instills a level of hunger on top of the hunger that you already had." After McDaniel



Yates: Holding onto Jimmy Garoppolo this season makes sense for 49ers

No matter who the San Francisco 49ers select at No. 3 overall later this month, the speculation surrounding the future of Jimmy Garoppolo will heat up. Right now, the plan is to hold onto the veteran quarterback, allowing the rookie to sit and learn in his first year. Still, there will be those who believe the 49ers should trade Garoppolo and that his trade value will plummet as soon as his eventual replacement is drafted. Field Yates joined ESPN's Get Up! and explained why it might be in the Niners' best interest to hold onto Garoppolo for the upcoming season, which head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have stated as the plan. "We still plan on him leading us and getting as far as we can with him,"



Why the 49ers must draft Justin Fields

When Jimmy Garappolo arrived in San Francisco in a trade from the New England Patriots in 2017, he was a young, athletic, and skilled quarterback. However, a couple of season-ending injuries later, his value has plummeted. The perception of the quarterback is that of an older, immobile, and inaccurate passer who often makes questionable decisions. Garoppolo's injury-riddled stint with the Niners has caused the entire team to suffer due to below-average backup play leading to mostly disappointing results. After head coach Kyle Shanahan's third losing season in four years, he has set his mind on using the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft to select a durable franchise quarterback who can execute his offensive playbook effectively and has the athletic skill set to lead a



Why the 49ers made the move to No. 3

Patrick Mahomes. Jared Goff. Carson Wentz. Cam Newton. Russell Wilson. What do these names have in common? Well, all of these quarterbacks were first-string quarterbacks on Super Bowl teams (Wentz was injured, but was QB1 on the Eagles). Most importantly, they were all on their rookie contracts during the year their teams made the Super Bowl. On March 26, the San Fransisco 49ers sent a boatload of picks: the No. 12 pick, their next two first-rounders, AND a third-round compensatory selection in 2022 for the No. 3 pick this year. Given the magnitude of the trade and the amount the 49ers gave up, many were questioning whether the trade up to presumably grab a quarterback was worth it for the franchise.
