It sounds like the 49ers' injury concerns heading into next Monday's game against the Vikings in Minnesota aren't all that significant with the exception of running back Christian McCaffrey, though details with him remain very limited. 

McCaffrey left Sunday's game against the Browns with injuries to his oblique and ribs and head coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday that his star running back is getting an MRI. It's unclear if the 49ers view him as day-to-day or something of a longer outlook and we may not find out more until the first injury report of the week is released on Wednesday. 


There's better news for the 49ers with wide receiver Deebo Samuel (shoulder) and left tackle Trent Williams (ankle) as both are considered day-to-day. Samuel left Sunday's game in the second quarter and didn't return while Williams exited briefly before returning. 

Meanwhile, linebacker Dre Greenlaw, who missed the game in Cleveland, is expected to return to practice this week. He played in the first five games of the season and then showed up on the injury report last Thursday with a hamstring issue. 

Meanwhile, Vikings head coach Kevin O'Connell expressed concern about edge rusher Marcus Davenport, who injured his ankle during the second quarter of Minnesota's win over Chicago on Sunday. 

"Marcus Davenport does have an ankle injury. We are still going through the evaluation here this morning and the afternoon on exactly the extent of that injury. It is definitely something we are going to have to really, really take a look at from a medical standpoint. I can update you guys on a timeline of what that looks like, but we are still working through that," O'Connell said Monday. 

Cornerback Akayleb Evans is dealing with oblique soreness but O'Connell believes he'll be good to go for Monday night against San Francisco, and left guard Ezra Cleveland, who left the game against the Bears with a foot injury, is considered day-to-day.
