Bruce Miller injures scapula (shoulder blade), may be out for season

SANTA CLARA — Here is what Jim Harbaugh said about Bruce Miller at his Monday press conference.

Q: Is there an injury update for Bruce Miller?

HARBAUGH: Yeah, it doesn’t look good. It looks like he has an injury to his scapula.

Q: How significant of a loss is that?

HARBAUGH: Very significant. He does so many things in the protection, the run game, receiving out of the backfield. He is a multi-talented, multi-use player, special teams contributor on two, three phases. It’s a loss.

Q: Can you guess how many weeks he’ll be out?

HARBAUGH: Not right now. We have a pretty good idea, but I won’t say anything officially, but it doesn’t look good right now. But it’s something he’ll heal from.

Q: But you’re preparing to not have him the rest of the way, even in the playoffs?

HARBAUGH: As we speak, yes. Owen Marecic hopefully is in route. We’ll look at our options.
