49ers Suffer a Huge Injury to Offensive Line

Check out this story posted by Matt Loede over on NFL Gridiron Gab.  It could have huge NFC West ramifications for the start of the season.

The Niners got awful news today about center Eric Heitmann, as Matt Maiocco just tweeted the following about an injury that will keep him out up to two months:

‘This is bad news for the Niners, as listed 2nd on the depth chart at center is Cody Wallace, a 4th round pick in the 2008 draft from Texas A&M.’

Source tells CSN Bay Area 49ers center Eric Heitmann will miss 6 to 8 weeks with a broken left fibula.”

It’s unknown whether the Niners plan to make a roster move to cover themselves, but this will surely upset the Niners’ plans up front as the center is widely regarded as the general of the offensive line.  We’ll have to wait and see how large an impact this has on the division.
