49ers' LB Brock Coyle suffered a compression fracture to his T4 vertebra, and will need at least six weeks in recovery. (Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

Coyle wasn't great in his Week 1 debut against the Vikings, but he was headed back to the bench in Week 3 at the latest anyway once 49ers' LB Reuben Foster returns from suspension. Coyle played well last year when 49ers' LB Malcolm Smith tore his pectoral muscle before the season began, and it's unfortunate he likely won't get the chance to bounce back in 2018.
