San Francisco 49ers beginning linebacker Dre Greenlaw had one of the wild accidents you’ll ever see on a soccer subject throughout Tremendous Bowl LVIII.
Greenlaw suffered an Achilles damage after merely making an attempt to run onto the sphere from the 49ers’ sideline within the first half, the crew introduced. He was questionable to return and later dominated out.
Greenlaw and different gamers on protection had been on the 49ers’ sideline watching the punt return get fumbled by the Chiefs’ Richie James Jr., who finally recovered and was tackled.
Greenlaw, excited by a possible fumble restoration, was seen leaping up and down. However when he determined to run onto the sphere, he tumbled to the turf and instantly grabbed his left leg.
None of this was seen by the thousands and thousands watching at house because the CBS broadcast got here out of business to point out the scene unfold.
And it didn’t look good for Greenlaw, who instantly went to the blue medical tent for analysis.
A cart got here out for him to be taken off the sphere to get assessments executed within the locker room.
The fifth-year 49ers linebacker is an important piece of their stingy protection, accumulating 120 tackles this season with 1.5 sacks and 4 passes defended over 15 video games.
Greenlaw’s pace alongside Fred Warner in the midst of the protection was serving to preserve the Chiefs’ offense at bay within the first half.
The 49ers will depend on Oren Burks to take over for Greenlaw for the remainder of the sport.
Greenlaw was a fifth-round decide by the 49ers within the 2019 NFL Draft.
