Alexander was hurt in the second half of the 49ers’ 28-25 win over the Cardinals on Thursday. Alexander removed his shoulder pads soon after his injury, and the 49ers quickly declared him out of the game.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters Friday morning he was nervously anticipating the results of the MRI.

“It’s going to be a tough loss,” Shanahan said. “Hopefully it’s not for the whole season.”

Alexander, who was signed to a four-year, $54 million contract in March, entered Thursday with an interception, a forced fumble and 34 tackles, the second most on the team.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter was first to report the extent of the injury.
