The 49ers’ game against the Seahawks got off to a terrifying start when running back Trenton Cannon got hit in the head twice and went down awkwardly on the opening kickoff.
He was down on the field for several minutes and had his neck put in a brace by the 49ers’ medical staff. An ambulance was driven onto the field, and Cannon was taken off on a stretcher.
Reporters from Lumen Field said Cannon was moving his left hand and arm as he was loaded into the ambulance. He was also shown talking to training staff.
We’ll provide updates on Cannon’s condition as soon as one is provided.
