The San Francisco 49ers might have a special teams issue heading into Week 10 Monday Night Football against the Seattle Seahawks. Kicker Robbie Gould strained his quad and is a question mark for the game, according to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport. The team is expected to sign kicker Chase McLaughlin while assessing Gould’s status.
Gould did not appear to injure himself in last Thursday’s game, and was on hand for the team’s Tuesday practice, according to beat writer Eric Branch. This suggests he injured the quad during the Tuesday practice. The 49ers return to practice Thursday afternoon and will issue their first practice participation report after that session.
Fantasy football analysis: 49ers K Robbie Gould
Gould has struggled this season and is currently the 15th ranked fantasy kicker. He’s gone from a must start to a spot start during his struggles. If McLaughlin plays on Monday, you are probably better off considering other options off the waiver wire.
