An MRI on the left knee of San Francisco 49ers running back Brandon Jacobs showed "no major damage," NFL.com reported Sunday.

Jacobs injured his knee in the first quarter of Saturday night's game against the Houston Texans when he was hit by Kareem Jackson at the end of an 8-yard run late in the first quarter.

Jacobs remained on the turf for several minutes while trainers talked with him. He was helped to his feet and hopped off the field on his right leg before being placed on a cart and taken to the locker room.

Jacobs joined the 49ers in the offseason after seven seasons with the New York Giants.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
