San Francisco 49ers left tackle Joe Staley exited the game in the last two minutes of Thursday night's 35-11 win over the NFC West rival St. Louis Rams with a leg injury.
The outlook seemed rather ominous for the two-time All-Pro, as reported by Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News and CSNBayArea.com's Matt Maiocco:
Standing 50 feet from Joe staley and he's in enormous pain and he knew it was bad right away.— Tim Kawakami (@timkawakami) September 27, 2013
Joe Staley is down and half of the team is around to check in him.— Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoCSN) September 27, 2013
Joe Staley didn't want the cart. He walked into locker room with assistance. Jim Harbaugh looked as if he wanted to go with him.— Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoCSN) September 27, 2013
