Snake bit.

IMO Ninja Tuttle was outplaying Shimmy in 2019.

For me, losing Davenport will have a bigger impact on D.

Dang. That is two productive players that we will need come playoffs. Still, I remember losing a lot more players to IR in years past. Thank God for depth players and Jeff Ireland.

Sheldon’s done some great things, but he’s broken his leg, torn his Achilles and now “significant” ankle injury. That stuff has to eventually slow down a 300 pound man.

He certainly looked slower this year compared to last.

He was nearly unblockable last year and invisible this year.

I just don't believe Shimmy was ever healthy this year.

Same could be said for Kamara.

Between the refs and us obviously pissing off the universe we are cursed. I do think we will be fine though.

We aren't alone.
49ers hit hard by injuries after Saints game

Center Weston Richburg is out for the season with a torn patellar tendon. Dee Ford and Richard Sherman will both miss multiple weeks with hamstring injuries.
