Niners hit by injuries in preseason opener against Dallas
Linebacker Malcolm Smith returned to the sideline with an injured hamstring, while defensive end Solomon Thomas (head) and tight end George Kittle (shoulder) went back to the locker room in the first quarter for observation.
All are expected to be available for Week 1 of the regular season, according to coach Kyle Shanahan.
"I know it's going to be some time," Shanahan had said of Breida and Kittle. "So, I don't know how long, but I have a feeling it's going to be some time."
Thomas was reportedly inadvertently kicked in the face with a cleat and ruled out of returning to the game.
