The San Francisco 49ers unwillingly placed right tackle Tony Pashos on season-ending injured reserve Tuesday after he had an MRI exam on the left shoulder. A blade on the shoulder was broken and Pashos will not be able to use it in the remaining season.
The veteran offensive lineman in 49ers jersey was hurt during Sunday’s 24-21 loss at Houston. It was the first time he started at right tackle in place of Adam Snyder and Coach Mike Singletary had hoped to make him the regular right tackle so as to improve things on the line. And now the injuries just destroyed all the plans.
Although Singletary did not speculate in Monday to the media about how the line would look come Sunday if Pashos was out, it was most likely that he would move Snyder back to right tackle and keep Chilo Rachal at right guard.
