San Francisco 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk will be sidelined four to six weeks with a sprained MCL according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.

Jusyczyk was forced from the team's win against the Cleveland Browns and initial fears were that he would be lost to the season.  For now, the 49ers are going to hold off putting Juszczyk on injured reserve as that would keep him out until Week 14.   It's sort of an oxymoron in 2019, but Juszczyk is the league's most important fullback. Despite the 49ers already having their bye week, he has played 52 more snaps than any other lead blocker.  His loss is a blow to the Niners' creative, effective running game.
