Found October 10, 2011 on Fox Sports:
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Joshua Morgan will miss significant time with a broken bone in his lower right leg that requires surgery. Coach Jim Harbaugh said Monday that Morgan was scheduled for a ''procedure.'' He was injured late in the fourth quarter of San Francisco's 48-3 victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. Morgan caught a 19-yard pass from backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick on fourth-and-3 and was tackled just short of the goal line - one of his five receptions Sunday. He grimaced in pain and stayed on the ground for several minutes as teammates gathered around in support. Fans at Candlestick Park chanted ''Morgan! Morgan!'' before he was carried off by Vernon Davis and trainers and then carted to the locker room.
