Mike Iupati was carted off to the locker room during the 49ers’ 23-20 loss at New Orleans on Sunday. He was seen leaving the locker room on crutches and with his knee in a brace. During the game, Iupati was replaced by Adam Snyder.
Iupati has a sprained MCL injury, which could keep him out several weeks. This is a horrible injury for a team that is struggling badly moving the ball. I think teams have began to find out how to shut down Colin Kaepernick. When will the team turn to their back up quarterback?
The 49ers’ offense is struggling. They have not been able to cross the 200-total yard plateau in two straight games, and it had five three-and-outs Sunday.
