During Jerry Rice’s weekly appearance on The Morning Roast, the 49ers legend previewed his old club’s upcoming matchup with the Rams, dubbing it a “playoff game” and also offered his best wishes to Klay Thompson.
The Hall of Famer knows all about enduring crushing injuries in back-to-back fashion. Int the 1997 season opener, Rice tore his ACL. The 49er star returned 14 weeks later, much swifter than doctors had advised, only to crack the patella in his left knee cap.
“I think he’s being tested right now,” Rice said on 95.7 The Game. “I think he’s a fantastic athlete. He brings so much to the Bay Area.”
“And he’s just going to have to step back and somehow fight through this adversity. But, you know, all the props goes out to this guy and I wish him much success and I hope that he can heal fast.”
