The San Francisco 49ers could be a key piece of their secondary in Week 1.
According to PFF’s Ari Meirov“Kyle Shanahan announced that safety Jimmie Ward suffered a significant hamstring injury that could keep him out for the start of the regular season.”
The NFL world reacted to the tough Niners injury news on social media.
“Great news for Week 1,” one user replied.
“And it begins…” one 49ers fan tweeted.
“Bears May Have Off Week 1.”
“OOF is their best defense by a mile,” commented another.
“That’s not good at all, but I guess you’ll get it out of the way soon?” one Niners fan asked.
Jimmie Ward just finished a season that saw him set career highs in tackles and interceptions.
