Last night, San Francisco 49ers running back Brandon Jacobs' knee injury looked bad, real bad, season-ending bad. Torn ACL, MCL, you name it, it's gotta something bad like that, right?

But wait, there's hope on the horizon. X-rays have come back negative, showing his ACL and patellar tendon are still intact. He's scheduled for an MRI today.

Sure, he'll miss some time, but until we know exactly the nature of the injury, we can't speculate. Head coach Jim Harbaugh, while aknowledging he will miss time, said that his injury is not of the "you don't come back from variety."

So, if we go with that initial assumption, Jacobs will be back.
