49ers RB Trenton Cannon released from hospital

San Francisco 49ers running back Trenton Cannon was released from a Seattle-area hospital and returned home Monday after a scary scene in Sunday’s game against the Seahawks.

Niners coach Kyle Shanahan gave reporters the update on Cannon’s status Monday, adding that the player remained in concussion protocol.

“He’s doing better,” Shanahan said. “He’s been discharged from the hospital, and he’s flying home right now. Our doctors will continue to monitor him.”

On the game’s opening kickoff, Cannon was on the ground in an attempt to wrap up the Seahawks’ returner when he accidentally hit a teammate, which snapped his head and neck back.

The ambulance had to drive onto the field so medical personnel could load Cannon on via stretcher. The 27-year-old was taken to a local hospital for further observation.

Cannon has appeared in 46 career games for the New York Jets (2018-19), Carolina Panthers (2020), Baltimore Ravens (2021) and 49ers. In San Francisco, he mostly contributes as a special teams player.

Shanahan also said that running back Elijah Mitchell entered concussion protocol following Sunday’s 30-23 loss, and cornerback Emmanuel Moseley would be out for “several” weeks due to a high-ankle sprain.
