49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw tore his Achilles during Sunday’s 25-22 overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII, San Francisco coach Kyle Shanahan said following the game.

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 just completed his fifth season with the 49ers and had 120 tackles in the regular season, the second-highest output of his career. He had three tackles before exiting Sunday’s game.
