The 49ers cannot catch a break on the injury front. McKinnon played well in his first extended action in over two years, but Jeff Wilson Jr. outproduced him. McKinnon would get a fair share of touches if he plays Sunday against the Eagles, but it would not be surprising to see him sit a week to keep his bruised ribs from getting worse. Jeff Wilson Jr. would get the heavy workload if McKinnon could not play.
49ers TE Jordan Reed will miss 6-8 weeks with a sprained MCL, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Reed was injured on a low hit during their win against the New York Giants. Reed was placed on Injured Reserve.
The Tennessee Titans and Minnesota Vikings have closed their facilities due to Titans players and personnel testing positive for COVID-19, according to Albert Breer of the Monday Morning Quarterback and others.
Breer reported that the Titans are deep-cleaning their facility today and "there's no set criteria on re-opening, but NFL/Titans will allow infectious disease experts to guide that decision."
Positive tests were re-tested Tuesday morning and came back positive.
Minnesota reported no positive tests as of Tuesday morning.
This is troubling news on multiple fronts, but in terms of fantasy there is a realistic chance the Titans, Vikings, and their Week 4 opponents (Pittsburgh and Houston, respectively) are forced to move their bye week to this upcoming Sunday. This situation is very fluid and will also change waiver wire adds/drops. Make sure your claims are in if you have any player from those four teams.
