49ers RB Jerick McKinnon out for season with torn ACL

San Francisco 49ers running back Jerick McKinnon suffered a non-contact knee injury during a team workout Saturday, head coach Kyle Shanahan announced, according to ESPN's Nick Wagoner. "But I have felt that way before, and it hasn't been [an ACL], so I'm not trying to [make this] the darkest moment in the world right now". The initial news coming in sounds less than optimistic, and reports have confirmed that McKinnon suffered a season-ending ACL tear on the final play of practice.

San Francisco 49ers running back Alfred Morris is expected to be the starter in Week 1 against the Minnesota Vikings. He is being drafted in the top four rounds of most drafts from Yahoo to ESPN.

Rookie safety Marcell Harris and guard Erik Magnuson are candidates go to on injured reserve due to hamstring injuries, Shanahan said. Morris and Breida likely will split carries throughout the season, and the 49ers probably will pass a lot more than they run given Garoppolo's vast talent and the lack of a star running back.

Morris is interesting, because he looked awesome in the team's third preseason game, he has a relationship with Shanahan, and he's the only starter-caliber back that is now totally healthy on the roster.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the USA commented about the Ethereum in June this year that it is not a security. The Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) is supposed to affirm the futures and options exchange.

The injury came hours before the 49ers had to reduce their roster to 53 players. Cooper was known for his athleticism when he entered the league, and that athleticism figured to make for a good fit in Shanahan's offense. The 49ers expect to sign Taumoepenu to the 10-player practice squad on Sunday if he clears waivers.

Attaochu signed a one-year, $3 million deal with a $1.5 million signing bonus on March 14 in hopes that he could bolster the Niners' edge rush.

"We just didn't get that many opportunities to correctly evaluate him", general manager John Lynch said. He just went down.
