Having already lost Nick Mangold for the season, the Jets have today ruled out 6 other players for their trip out west to face the 49'ers on Sunday. Here is the final injury report for the game:

Status Report

Out

Friday

S Antonio Allen (concussion), T Breno Giacomini (back, calf shoulder), WR Jalin Marshall (concussion), LB Lorenzo Mauldin (ankle), DT Steve McLendon (hamstring), RB Khiry Robinson (lower leg)

Questionable

Friday

DE Muhammad Wilkerson (ankle)

It's not a massive loss to lose Breno for this game. He's been injured for most of the season and when he hasn't been injured he's been ineffective. With him likely getting cut this off-season to save cap room, it's a good opportunity to see a little more of Qvale.  Todd Bowles confirmed that he'll slot straight into RT.

Losing McLendon is probably a bigger deal. He's done a nice job this year filling in for Damon Harrison, and he's a big reason why we've performed so well against the run this year. This will give us an opportunity to see more of Simon who's flashed a little potential here and there.

Apparently Wilkerson is around 50/50, but honestly...he's having such a horrible year, you probably wouldn't notice him on the field even if he played 100% of the snaps anyway.

Doubtful

Friday

T Joe Staley (hamstring)

Questionable

Friday

DT Quinton Dial (elbow), LB Aaron Lynch (ankle)

Here are some thoughts on the final injury report by Niners Nation editor David Fucillo.

Left tackle Joe Staley is listed as doubtful which suggests he is highly unlikely to play. This would snap his streak of 92 consecutive games played. He has his ups and downs, but has been a rock on the left side. In his absence, left guard Zane Beadles will likely move outside. Beadles became the swing tackle when Anthony Davis retired, so he would likely be the guy who moves outside. He has played most of his career at guard, so this is not exactly ideal.

Pass rusher Aaron Lynch suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 7, and has not played since. He has been participating in practice the last few weeks, but has been limited throughout. Eli Harold started in his place opposite Ahmad Brooks. On Friday, Chip Kelly said they were anticipating getting him back. That would be a big addition for their pass rush, but for now I am assuming he won't play rather than raising expectations.

Defensive tackle Quinton Dial has rotated between defensive end and nose tackle in the 49ers 3-4. He sat out Week 12, and then played limited snaps in Week 13 before injuring his elbow. He likely will play on Sunday, but it will also likely be fairly limited, with Chris Jones starting in his place.
