49ers OLB Aldon Smith suffered a bruised hip in the 49ers’ 17-6 win over the Vikings. He was carted to the locker room after limping off the field and after being examined on the bench for several minutes, he was taken to the locker room for further observations. That said, the injury initially appeared more serious than it really is.
“It looks like we’ll be all right,” head coach Jim Harbaugh said. “Looks like we dodged a bullet there.”
