San Francisco 49ers left tackle Joe Staley left last night’s game against the St. Louis Rams with what looked like a leg injury. It appears that he was able to walk away without any serious setbacks though.
The 49ers already had the game in hand and were looking to run down the clock when Staley was bent over backwards on a block and he let out a scream that the TV audience was able to hear. He was down on the field for a while with his teammates surrounding and staring. A cart was brought out to the field, but Joe Staley being the boss that he is just took a little help from the trainers instead to get to the sideline.
There still is no official report on his injury status, but it was reported that he walked away from the X-ray room without a limp.
Joe Staley just walked out if the X-ray room under his own power. No limp.
