Former Pitt Star Scott McKillop Potentially Out For Season


Scott McKillop, 49ers special teamer and backup linebacker is apparently out for the season with a torn patellar tendon and ACL.

↵

McKillop led the team in tackles on special teams last season and was poised to potentially become the 2nd string backup to starter Takeo Spikes. This is a tough break for McKillop particularly as this is the last year of Spikes' contract. McKillop could have been primed to become the starter if Spikes was not re-signed.

There's no official word yet if McKillop is definitely going to miss the next year, but it sure looks that way.

All in all, a tough break for the former Panther.
