49ers tight end Delanie Walker could be out for awhile according to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayarea.com.
Walker sustained a significant jaw injury when Seahawks linebacker Leroy Hill inadvertently kicked him as he tried to hurdle Walker, who was on the ground. Hill was in pursuit of 49ers running back Frank Gore on a run play.
“He’s going to be out for a period of time,” 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said Monday. “We don’t know exactly how long.”
When asked if the 49ers would replace Walker on the roster, Harbaugh said the 49ers are considering all of their options.
