Brandon Jacobs' MRI reveals 'no major damage' to left knee

The San Francisco 49ers can breathe a sigh of relief after an MRI has revealed running back Brandon Jacobs suffered "no major damage" to his left knee, according to a source with knowledge of his condition.

Jacobs left the 49ers' preseason loss to the Houston Texans on Friday after taking a direct hit from cornerback Kareem Jackson on an 8-yard run near the end of the first quarter.

The running back was unable to put weight on his left leg and was carted to the 49ers' locker room.
