Injury Update: John Ursua carted off the field

NFL: San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

It’s not even halftime of the preseason Week 2 game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos, and I’m already tired of writing injury updates. The game started off with linebacker Ben Burr-Kirven being carted off after hyperextending his knee on the opening kickoff, and then just before the two minute warning wide receiver John Ursua was carted off.

Ursua, of course, was one of several names in the competition for the final wide receiver spots on the roster. A third year pro who spent the 2019 season on the 53 man roster before spending 2020 on the practice squad, it appeared as though trainers were evaluating Ursua’s knee before he was taken off the field. If it proves to be a serious injury for Ursua, it would not be the first, as he tore the ACL in his right knee midway through his 2017 season in college at Hawaii.

In addition to Ursua being carted off, Aaron Fuller was taken to the injury tent for evaluation after taking a hard hit on a reception over the middle.
