49ers place Antoine Bethea on season-ending IR

Oct 23, 2015 at 1:24 PM--


According to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area – citing a 'league source' – the San Francisco 49ers have placed S Antoine Bethea on season-ending IR.

Bethea was at Stanford today having an MRI on the shoulder/chest area that he injured in Thursday night's loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Bethea, who has started all seven games this season, had 44 combined tackles and a sack for the season. He has been to three Pro Bowls.

The move will make room for WR Jerome Simpson to join the active roster. Simpson is coming off of a six-game suspension and became eligible to rejoin the team for practices on Monday. However, with a shortened week, he was not activated for the team's game against the Seahawks.

The 49ers had until 1 PM on Friday to make a roster move to fit Simpson on the active roster.

Update:

Bethea's injury is actually a torn pectoral according to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee.

The 2020 season didn't go as planned for the San Francisco 49ers. The team had hoped to make another run at the Super Bowl and erase the bad taste resulting from last year's heartbreaking defeat. Injuries spoiled San Francisco's plans, and Kyle Shanahan's squad missed the playoffs for the third time in the head coach's four seasons with the team. Which was the outlier? Is it the 49ers' impressive Super Bowl run following the 2019 season or the injury-plagued 2020 season that resulted in just six wins?

San Francisco 49ers offensive lineman Colton McKivitz spoke with Metro News in West Virginia and reflected on his wild rookie NFL season. It wasn't a typical rookie campaign.

Then, when McKivitz had an opportunity to finally step onto the football field in a pro game for the first time, it was in front of ... no one. Levi's Stadium was empty due to the ongoing pandemic. "It was wild, thrilling, and confusing," McKivitz told McKivitz, Brad Howe, and Gregory Hunter. "It is everything you wanted it to be as a rookie year, except for the uncertainty of if you're going to play this week or next week because of COVID and all
