Brandon Jacobs Injury: Left Knee MRI Shows "No Major Damage"

The San Francisco 49ers received a scare as running back Brandon Jacobs appeared to injure his left knee in their last preseason game. Fortunately for the franchise an MRI has shown there is no structural damage. There is no timetable set for Jacobs' return, but there is still a chance he is able to return for the season opener.

Here is the latest news on Jacobs:

The 49ers have to be thrilled with the results. Jacobs is expected to be a key member of the backfield along with Frank Gore, and the very last thing you want for a running back to have is a knee problem. Look for San Francisco to take every precaution with the veteran tailback in the coming weeks as he recovers from the injury.
