It's possible that fullback Kyle Juszczyk has played his final game in a San Francisco 49ers uniform, but if that proves to be the case, chances are the team will put up a fight before letting it happen.

The 49ers were coming off a Super Bowl appearance and focused on returning to the big game. Injuries changed those plans. San Francisco's roster was almost unrecognizable after only a handful of games. Added to that, the team spent the last month of the season in Arizona after being forced out of Santa Clara County due to COVID-19 restrictions banning contact sports.
