NBC Bay Area's Matt Maiocco reports Jerick McKinnon's ACL tear was "clean" and he underwent surgery on Tuesday.
McKinnon is still obviously done for the season, but it's good news the tear was deemed a clean one with no other ligament damage. It should expedite McKinnon's rehab process and have him ready well in time for the start of next season. McKinnon will be 27 and still in his prime by the time Week 1 rolls around.

Beat writer Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area expects Alfred Morris to lead the Niners' backfield in Jerick McKinnon's absence.

McKinnon suffered a non-contact knee injury at Saturday's practice and appears to be done for the year. In his stead, the Niners will turn to Morris, who shined during the preseason with 89 yards on 19 carries. Morris played under Kyle Shanahan when he was the Redskins' offensive coordinator, so he's already familiar with the Niners' scheme. Matt Breida, who missed a chunk of camp while tending to a separated shoulder, showed flashes as a rookie but is better suited for a change-of-pace role. Morris isn't much of a pass-catcher, so having Breida spell him on passing downs would be an ideal arrangement. Both players need to be owned in all fantasy leagues.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Morris makes for an interesting Week 1 GPP play based on volume alone at near min price across the industry, but expectations should be tempered due to the Vikings' stout defense and Morris's limited skill set.
