Jerick McKinnon ready for every-down role for the wounded 49ers
SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Very little has gone to plan for the San Francisco 49ers during the first two weeks of the 2020 season.They lost their best pass rusher, Nick Bosa, for the year with a torn ACL. Star tight end George Kittle and All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman have already missed time with injuries, and pass rusher Dee Ford’s status is uncertain as he deals with a dreaded back injury.Another hurdle to overcome is the situation at running back. Starter Raheem Mostert is expected to miss Sunday’s game against the New York Giants with an MCL sprain and backup Tevin Coleman could land on in...

Eagles WR Jalen Reagor expected to go on IR with torn ligament in thumb
PHILADELPHIA — Eagles first-round pick Jalen Reagor is expected to miss several weeks with a torn UCL ligament in his thumb.The team announced that Reagor’s injury, which is similar to New Orleans Saints’ quarterback Drew Brees’ injury from last year, happened during last Sunday’s 37-19 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.For reference, Brees missed five weeks with the thumb injury and had to wear a wrap on his hurt thumb once he was back. It’s safe to assume Reagor will need surgery to repair the issue, and he’s likely to go on injured reserve while he’s on the mend.The team took Reagor with the No....

Phillies lose home finale to Blue Jays — and possibly Bryce Harper to injury
PHILADELPHIA — After striking out with the bases loaded in the seventh inning Sunday, Bryce Harper returned to the dugout, pointed to his hip as he spoke to manager Joe Girardi and bench coach Rob Thomson, and headed into the clubhouse, not to return to the game.Compared to that visual — and what it could have meant — a loss to the Toronto Blue Jays in the final home game of the season qualified as nothing-to-see-here.The Phillies did lose, 6-3, despite a decent start from Adonis Medina in his major-league debut and three errors committed by the Blue Jays. They leave town now for a season-endi...

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Richard Sherman’s 10th season came to an unexpected pause Wednesday, and the 49ers can only hope their top cornerback is not lost for more than the next three games.A calf strain is sending Sherman to injured reserve, where he must be out until at least a Week 5 visit by the Miami Dolphins on Oct. 11, a league source confirmed.Coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday he was unaware of any other injuries from Sunday’s season-opening loss other than those to tight end George Kittle (knee) and wide receiver Richie James (hamstring).
