Jim Harbaugh and the San Francisco 49ers can breath a sigh of relief on Sunday as the results on Brandon Jacobs‘ injured knee came back without any serious damage.
The former New York Giant left Saturday’s game in the first quarter after sustaining a hit to his right knee from Kareem Jackson of the Houston Texans. The injury appeared to be serious and the 49ers training staff took Jacobs back to the locker room on a cart.
According to a report by beat writer Matt Barrows, Jacobs tweeted “Good Good Good” in response to the results of his MRI. Barrows writes ”
Images taken Sunday showed no significant damage there, either. The time table for Jacobs’ recovery is not known at this point and his availability for the 49ers’ first regular-season game Sept. 9 in Green Bay is up in the air.
One Twitter addendum: Jacobs revealed that the Texans defender who tackled him, Kareem Jackson, was concerned that he had injured the big 49ers running back. Wrote Jacobs last night: “Big ups to Kareem Jackson from the Texans he is a classy guy, he came to the X-ray room to wish me a speedy recovery.”
