San Francisco 49ers fullback Will Tukuafu was injured during the 49ers' first drive against the Carolina Panthers in the NFC Divisional playoff game in Charlotte, North Carolina. Tukuafu's leg was caught under a Panthers defender during a tackle.

Tukuafu was signed in December to replace Bruce Miller, who was placed on injured reserve.

FOX reports that Tukuafu is questionable to return.
