17 Aug Jalen Hurd Out for the Season
The 49ers received some horrible news only a few days into their 2020 training camp. Second year receiver Jalen Hurd took an awkward fall and was taken back to the locker room. Later on, his agent and Coach Shanahan both confirmed it was a torn-ACL and he will miss the entire year yet again.
This is a huge blow to the 49ers, especially considering the second-year receiver missed his entire rookie campaign after injuring his back after a phenomenal start against the Cowboys in the preseason. Now, the wide receiver group will certainly look for someone to step up and fill the hole that Hurd leaves open.
A lot of fans are already looking to rookie Jauan Jennings, as he does have a similar big-body build to Hurd. He has also already been shining in camp.
Only time will tell as to who fills the void for the 49ers, but one thing is for sure – the fans are extremely disappointed to have to wait another year to see Jalen Hurd take the field.
