Braylon Edwards Injury: GM Trent Baalke Classifies Knee As Day-To-Day

The San Francisco 49ers are struggling with wide receiver injuries at the moment, but the team got some good news on Monday when they found out that Braylon Edwards' right knee injury probably won't cause him to miss any game time. According to Cam Inmane, 49ers general manager Trent Baalke revealed that an MRI on Edwards' knee shows that it is "day-to-day."

Edwards suffered the injury during the first quarter of the 49ers' 27-24 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.  He left the field and was listed as questionable for the rest of the game. He did not return.

The 49ers also played without receiver Michael Crabtree (foot injury) on Sunday, and the loss of Edwards only further depleted the team's receiving pool. The passing game, however, wasn't the reason for the team's loss as quarterback Alex Smith connected on two touchdown passes during the game.

The return of Crabtree and Edwards, though, should help the team moving forward. No estimate has been set for Crabtree's return yet, but Edwards should be back in practice within a few days as he nurses his day-to-day knee injury.
