After the inital hit from Hufanga, his head hit the leg of another teammate.
As Cannon lay on the field, the entire 49ers bench came out to surround him, and Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and other Seattle players joined in. After examination by the medical crew, Cannon was then taken off the field by ambulance to a local hospital. The players took a knee as Cannon was taken off the field.
According to ESPN as of press time, Cannon was diagnosed with a concussion while at the hospital, and was ruled out for the remainder of Sunday’s game. Cannon was cleared from other injuries other than the concussion, but 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan reported after the game that Cannon will stay at the hospital for further observation.
