Earlier: San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders just headed to the locker room in the second quarter of tonight’s Monday Night Football contest.
Sanders, who has been impressive since being acquired from the Denver Broncos in a trade last month, was shaken up after a play. While he wasn’t hit, Sanders pulled up lame and appeared to grab his side.
ESPN cameras later showed him walking off to the locker room with medical personnel.
According to the 49ers, Sanders is questionable to return with a rib injury.
Ribs for Emmanuel Sanders. He's questionable

We’ll see if Sanders is able to return at all as the game progresses.
The undefeated 49ers lead the Seattle Seahawks 10-0 midway through the second quarter. As they so often have, the 49ers’ defensive line has dominated the game thus far.
You can catch all the action on ESPN.
Update: Sanders has officially been ruled out.
Status note: Emmanuel Sanders (rib) won’t return Monday.
