An additional examination of the playing surface at MetLife Stadium took place on Wednesday, and the field was again verified to meet all applicable standards and protocols for NFL field surfaces, a league source said. to Jordan Raanan from ESPN.Representatives from the NFL, NFLPA, MetLife Stadium, Giants and Jets, FieldTurf and the Independent Field Inspector conducted the review, the source told Raanan.

San Francisco 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan and his players worried about the pitch following the 49ers’ 31-13 win over the Jets in Week 2 as defensive back Nick Bosa, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo , running backs Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman and defensive tackle. Solomon Thomas all suffered lower body injuries that ended the game.

Bosa and Thomas each suffered torn ACLs at the end of the season, Mostert has an MCL sprain, Coleman has a knee injury that should put him on the sidelines for several weeks, and Garoppolo has a high ankle sprain.

The 49ers play this Sunday at MetLife for the second straight week, this time against the Giants. The new FieldTurf was installed in the stadium this summer, and it had previously only been played in Jets and Giants scrums, as well as during the Giants’ season opener on Monday night in Week 1.
