49ers to place Jerick McKinnon on IR

The 49ers are expected to place RB Jerick McKinnon on injured reserve with a knee injury, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Fantasy Impact: 

Rapoport notes it is unclear whether this will end McKinnon's season or if he will return at some point during the season. McKinnon had suffered a setback during his recovery after having just returned to practice on Tuesday. Injuries have gotten the better of McKinnon since signing a four-year, $30 million deal with the 49ers in 2018 after he tore his ACL before the start of last season. McKinnon had started training camp on the active/PUP list but was taken off the list, therefore he cannot be placed on reserve/PUP. Even if he comes back, the 49ers will continue to roll with Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida in the backfield.
