The San Francisco 49ers may have gotten the win on Sunday, but they lost a couple of major components to their success in the process. Both Fred Warner and Nick Bosa left the game early with injuries. However, there's a chance both could be back for next week.
When asked about Warner's ankle injury, Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan was hopeful.
“I think it’s similar to what he did earlier in the year when he had one,” Shanahan said, via ESPN.com. “We’re not sure yet. He’s got a chance.”
The All-Pro linebacker will undergo further testing on Monday and isn't being ruled out just yet. As for Nick Bosa, the pass rushing phenom will need to clear the NFL's concussion protocol in order to get back on the field for Saturday's playoff game in Green Bay.
But fellow defensive lineman Arik Armstead told 49ersWebzone.com, that he thinks it's “not too serious.”
Even without their Pro Bowl defensive duo, the 49ers were able to stave off the Cowboys to secure a 23-17 road playoff win. San Fran's defense held Dak Prescott and Co. in check, and the offense ran the ball down Dallas' throats.
