49ers LB Dre Greenlaw out of Super Bowl after injury running onto field

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw will miss the rest of Super Bowl LVIII after hurting an Achilles in a freak injury during the second quarter against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday in Las Vegas.

Greenlaw was running on to the field after a punt with 9:16 left in the second quarter when he suddenly fell to the ground not far from the San Francisco sideline. He had trouble getting up, trainers quickly attended to him and he was eventually taken by cart to the locker room.

The 49ers ruled Greenlaw out shortly before the end of the first half.

Greenlaw is in his fifth season with the 49ers and had 120 tackles in the regular season, the second-highest output of his career.

San Francisco led 10-3 at halftime.
