A non-contact injury has put San Francisco 49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw out of Super Bowl 58.

After the 49ers punted the ball to the Kansas City Chiefs in the second quarter at Allegiant Stadium, Greenlaw was getting himself hyped to back on the field with the rest of the defense. But when he took a step toward the field, there appeared to be an issue with his left leg and he immediately went to the ground. Trainers came to his aide as he was unable to put any pressure on his leg and he made his way to the bench.

Eventually, Greenlaw was taken back to the locker room and was extremely emotional, according to the CBS broadcast. It was initially ruled as a lower left leg injury, but was later determined to be an Achilles injury.

Later in the second quarter, he was ruled out for the remainder of the game.

Selected by San Francisco in the fifth round of 2019 NFL draft, Greenlaw has been a staple for the 49er defense, playing in all defensive snaps in the two playoff games this postseason. He has nine tackles, one of them for loss, and he had two interceptions in the divisional round against the Green Bay Packers, including the game-sealing pick.
