The San Francisco 49ers will be without a key piece of their offensive attack for an extended period.
NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, however, reports Juszczyk will seek a second opinion on his knee, and there is some hope that Juszczyk can be back on the field ahead of schedule.
Any time missed by Juszczyk is a blow for San Francisco -- and particularly coach Kyle Shanahan's vaunted rushing attack.
Juszczyk's athleticism and skill as a blocker -- he's one of the few fullbacks still utilized in today's NFL -- was on full display Monday night up until he exited the game in the second half. The Niners gutted the Browns for 185 rushing yards in the first half behind chunk gains by Matt Breida and Tevin Coleman, who often ran through gaping holes created in part from Juszcyzk's blocks.
In addition to his role in the run game, Juszczyk has six catches for 76 yards this season.
