Staley agreed to restructure his contract Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The new deal will give Staley a raise over the next two seasons, as he will receive $8.72 million next year instead of his originally agreed to $5.5 million. The veteran lineman will turn 34 before the beginning of the regular season but still remains one of the top left tackles in the league. He will be tasked with protecting Jimmy Garoppolo blindside in 2018.
Staley was originally expected to miss two weeks and then return following the team's bye week. However, his recovery has apparently gone especially well. The veteran is on track to return to his starting role at left tackle in Week 10.
Head coach Kyle Shanahan said that Staley (eye) will be held out until after the team's Week 11 bye, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
It was reported that Staley wouldn't need surgery to repair his fractured orbital, but it will keep the veteran lineman out at least two more games. The 49ers currently don't have an immediate replacement in line to start, but whoever they bring in will surely be a downgrade from the All-Pro left tackle.
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.
Staley suffered an eye injury Sunday against the Eagles and didn't return, Geoff Mosher of 97.5 The Fanatic reports.
The 49ers have a seriously banged-up offensive line, so it's unclear who will slot in for Staley if he can't play in Week 9 against the Cardinals. Staley needed stitches under his eye and the medical staff is checking him for a broken orbital, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reports.
