Head coach Matt Nagy just about confirmed the news to the media after the game. "Unfortunately, it looks like Tarik Cohen, after we get confirmation, looks like he did end up tearing his ACL," Nagy said. "So that will be a big blow to us there with that, which is unfortunate. So proud of that kid, and he's been really growing." It's terrible for Cohen, who just signed a three-year, $17.25 million extension earlier this month. Cohen suffered the injury during a punt return. After a rash of ACL tears in Week 2, the stretch continued in Week 3. Really sad for a fun back like Cohen. David Montgomery will likely see more work as a result.
Adams has already been listed as doubtful for tonight so this isn’t surprising. Perhaps this could be the day for Marquez Valdez-Scantling along with Allen Lazard, who were 40 and 41, respectively, in our receiver rankings before this news.
49ers WR Deebo Samuel (foot) is likely returning to practice this week but will be eased into coming off injured reserve.
Samuel is eligible to come off IR this week thanks to the short-term version this season. Rapoport says the likely return date for a game will be October 11 against the Dolphins, rather than next week against the Eagles. Samuel has been making progress and it should be exciting when he returns to the field fully healthy.
