It's already happened. This is no different. Brady, Hostetler replaced injured guys and went on to win the SB. I know there is many others. It has been going on since the NFL was around in all positions. The San Fran situation is nothing new. Players lose their jobs all the time due to injuries, it's the nature of the sport.

In many cases the coach was considering the change but he injury made the decision easy.
