McKinnon tore his ACL ahead of Week 1 last year and just made his return to the field a couple days ago. 

Head coach Kyle Shanahan said it's possible that McKinnon could be an IR designated to return canidate.

Next up for McKinnon will be a platelet rich plasma injection. While the 49ers are still holding out for a Week 1 return, in the interim, Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida are the top running backs.
