Former Wisconsin Badger linebacker Chris Borland’s rookie season at San Francisco is likely over.
Borland suffered an ankle injury recently and with the 49ers being out of playoff contention, it’s likely that they won’t push Borland to return.
Borland was the NFC’s rookie of the month in November. He was injured on the final play of the first half against Seattle last Sunday and was scheduled to undergo an MRI.
Filling in for the injured Patrick Willis, Borland led the 49ers in tackles with 107. That number ranked 12th in the NFL this season.
