LT Joe Staley Breaks Leg In 49ers Win

49ers LT Joe Staley is expected to miss 6-to-8 weeks after breaking his left fibula against the Bengals today, as ESPN’s Nick Wagoner relays.

“From what I hear so far, we’ll find out more tomorrow but it should be less than eight weeks, so I don’t think he’ll be an IR candidate,” coach Kyle Shanahan said. “But we’ll find out more tomorrow. I think it’s something he’s had before.”

The team had a tremendous game, dominating the Bengals on all fronts, but they lost Staley near the end of the third quarter. He was seen in a walking boot after the contest.

“I’m going to do everything I can to be part of this team for an end-of-season run,” said Staley. “I have a lot of years and knowledge. I’ve always thought that after my football career ends as a player, I’d give coaching a try. Now maybe I’ll have some time to try it. I’m bummed.”
