49ers LB Malcolm Smith To Miss 2017 Season With Torn Pectoral Muscle

49ers LB Malcolm Smith To Miss 2017 Season With Torn Pectoral Muscle

The 49ers press conference was setup to introducing the new general manager, John Lynch, and the teams new head coach, Kyle Shanahan.

Foster was named a Consensus All-American in 2016 and also earned the Dick Butkus Award, presented to the nation's best college linebacker, that same season.

If they do miss regular season action, the 49ers aren't exactly screwed, but they're not in a good place either.

Also listed on the injury report was linebacker Malcolm Smith. Without him, the job will either go to veteran Ray-Ray Armstrong or rookie Reuben Foster. He had spent the previous two seasons with the Oakland Raiders.

For now, one can only hope these two injuries aren't too serious and both players are back in action before too long.

One player who has made a lot of noise during the 49ers' training camp is now behind Armstrong on the depth chart, but that could change quickly.

Foster, a first-round draft pick this year, has been one of the 49ers' standouts throughout training camp. He could get bumped into a starting spot before the season begins.

The loss of Joshua Garnett is trickier.

More information regarding Smith's injury and replacement is expected to come out in the coming days and a decision should be made relatively soon.

Fantasy Impact Smith was primed for a solid IDP season playing behind a massive line in front of him and playing next to an all-pro in NaVorro Bowman to attract all the attention off of him.

It's bad news for the 49ers who look to overcome the second-worst record in the National Football League from last season.
