Report: Justin Smith has partially torn left triceps

According to Matt Barrows, Justin Smith partially tore his left triceps against the New England Patriots and he will require surgery in the offseason.

The 49ers are hoping Smith will be able to play through the injury in the playoffs. I don’t believe they would risk him this weekend against the Arizona Cardinals.

What do you think the 49ers chances in the playoffs are without Justin Smith?

Update: Justin Smith has a partially torn triceps tendon, not muscle, according to Matt Maiocco. There is a bone spur in Smith’s left elbow which has caused the tear. The 49ers hope Smith can regain strength in his left arm for the playoffs.
