49ers RB Jerick McKinnon (knee) scheduled for MRIAugust 12, 2018
McKinnon is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his right knee, the team announced Sunday.
The 5-foot-9, 205-pound McKinnon suffered the injury during practice and was observed grabbing the back of his right knee, according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. Maiocco added McKinnon watched the remainder of practice after being checked out by medical personnel.
Now, the team will hope there is nothing seriously wrong with one of their top free-agent acquisitions pending results of the MRI.
McKinnon, who joined San Francisco on a four-year, $30 million deal in March, was projected to open the regular season atop the depth chart.
