Thomlinson (knee) sustained a torn MCL during Sunday's loss to the Rams, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.
Tomlinson faces a three-month recovery timetable for his MCL injury, and could miss a portion of offseason workouts as a result. The former 2015 first-round pick was initially feared to have sustained a torn ACL, so this report is very good news for Tomlinson.
Tomlinson (knee) is ruled out to return to Sunday's game against the Rams, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Tomlinson was initially listed as questionable to return to the 49ers' season finale, but will ultimately remain sidelined. Joshua Garnett will continue to slot into the starting lineup.
Tomlinson is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Rams, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Tomlinson was carted off the field during the first half of the season finale, according to Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com, and is unlikely to retake the field. Joshua Garnett will replace Tomlinson, who had played every snap of the last two seasons, in the starting lineup.
Tomlinson agreed to a three-year contract extension Friday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN reports.
The 49ers declined the fifth-year team option on Tomlinson's contract in early May, but that doesn't mean they don't view him as a starting offensive lineman -- evidenced by this very extension. They just don't view him at the $9.6 million price tag Tomlinson otherwise would have been owed. Regardless, the 2015 first-rounder is now set to stick around in San Francisco through the 2021 campaign.
