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.â†µ
There's no official word yet if McKillop is definitely going to miss the next year, but it sure looks that way.â†µ
All in all, a tough break for the former Panther.
