Staley won't need surgery to address a fractured orbital, an injury he sustained during Sunday's loss to the Eagles, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Staley is expected to miss "a couple of weeks."

While it appears Staley may have avoided a significant absence, he's still experiencing significant swelling around his eye, which puts his status in peril for at least the Week 9 matchup with the Cardinals. Quarterback C.J. Beathard was sacked four times Sunday, and the 49ers could struggle even more to protect the rookie signal caller if Staley is forced to miss time.
