SAN FRANCISCO -- Receiver Braylon Edwards left the 49ers' game Sunday game against the Dallas Cowboys with a right knee injury in the first quarter.

Edwards' return to action was listed as questionable, according to the 49ers. Edwards sustained the injury on the 49ers' first drive of the game when he caught a 21-yard pass from quarterback Alex Smith on a third-and-10 situation. Edwards, who went to the locker room for further evaluation, was replaced by Ted Ginn.
With the injury to Edwards, the 49ers are playing without two of their top three wide receivers. Michael Crabtree (foot) was declared one of the 49ers' seven inactive players.The Cowboys are also playing without two of their top three cornerbacks, as Terence Newman and Orlando Scandrick are also out with injuries.

The 49ers inquired about the possibility of re-hiring defensive coordinator Vic Fangio to presumptive coach Kyle Shanahan's staff, but the Chicago Bears denied permssion, a source told CSNBayArea.com.

Fangio recently completed his second season as the Bears' defensive coordinator after spending four seasons in the same position on Jim Harbaugh's staff with the 49ers.

The Bears made it known to the 49ers that Fangio would not be allowed out of his contract. It never got to the point where the 49ers made a formal request to speak with Fangio, a source said.

Fangio's defenses were the strength of three 49ers teams that advanced to the NFC Championship game, including one Super Bowl appearance. He interviewed for the 49ers' head-coaching job after the 49ers parted ways with Harbaugh. After being passed over for defensive line coach Jim Tomsula, Fangio ended up on John Fox's staff with the Bears.

The Sacramento Bee was first to report the 49ers were blocked in their attempt to lure Fangio back to the organization.

Report: Seahawks could lose second-round pick in 2017 draft

The Seahawks might be in some trouble.

Seattle may lose its second-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft after failing to disclose Richard Sherman's knee injury, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

The league is reportedly mulling a penalty after Pete Carroll revealed on Monday that Sherman dealt with an MCL injury during the season.

Back in September, the NFL took away the Seahawks' fifth-round pick, fined the team $400,000 and fined Pete Carroll $200,000 for violating work rules that prohibit excessive contact in all offseason workouts.

The Seahawks will also forefit their first week of 2017 OTAs.
