Michael Wilhoite suffers stress fracture, will head to IR

Dec 9, 2015 at 7:13 AM--


Ryan Sakamoto of Niner Fans reported late Tuesday night that San Francisco 49ers LB Michael Wilhoite suffered a stress fracture and will head to the injured reserve list.

On Monday, 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula stated that Wilhoite was getting an MRI. Wilhoite was injured during the first quarter of Sunday's overtime win against the Bears in Chicago. He had been nursing an ankle injury during the previous week. Following the injury, Wilhoite appeared to be shaken up, but was able to get off the field under his own power. He was replaced by LB Gerald Hodges.


On Tuesday, TE Garrett Celek was placed on injured reserve, ending his season as well. He had suffered a high ankle sprain against the Arizona Cardinals and missed Sunday's game in Chicago. His roster spot was replaced by LB Shayne Skov.

Wilhoite has 85 tackles and one interception this season.

Not bad for the rookie coordinator who replaced Robert Saleh. All last offseason, head coach Kyle Shanahan expressed confidence in Ryans—almost seeming overconfident in his abilities to lead the defense. It would appear that trust paid off. Shanahan knows, eventually, he will receive that call from an NFL team. He knows another organization

The Miami Dolphins requested to interview San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel for their head coaching vacancy.

However, the valuable knowledge he has learned from head coach Kyle Shanahan could soon make him a hot commodity. McDaniel doesn't have time to think about any of that right now, though. Instead, he's focused on Sunday's road playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys. After Thursday's practice, the coordinator was asked about juggling preparing for the game and thinking about the head coaching opportunity, and his response should set 49ers fans' minds at ease. "Yeah, it has [come to my attention], but as far as juggling, there
