49ers place LB Shayne Skov on IR and make other roster moves

Nov 29, 2016 at 10:32 AM--


San Francisco 49ers LB Shayne Skov suffered a knee injury against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday and has been placed on the Injured Reserve list. To take his place, the team has promoted S Marcus Ball to the active roster. The 49ers have also brought back LB Wynton McManis, who has been signed to the practice squad.

Ball will wear number 46.

Skov did not make the original 53-man roster but was promoted from the practice squad to the active roster on September 21 following LB Ray-Ray Armstrong being placed on the Injured Reserve list.

"Shayne was actually a difficult cut to cut it to 53 because I thought he did enough to make the team," 49ers head coach Chip Kelly explained in September. "Obviously, we felt like we had six inside linebackers that were NFL quality players so that was a difficult day for Shayne and for us."

Skov has appeared in nine games this season. During those games, he has two tackles on defense along with eight tackles on special teams. In 2015 with San Francisco, he appeared in 15 games and registered four tackles on special teams.

Ball originally signed to the team's practice squad on November 22. He entered the NFL by signing as an undrafted free agent with the New Orleans Saints in 2014. He appeared in 12 games – starting two – during his rookie season and had 12 tackles on defense and nine special teams tackles. This season with the Carolina Panthers, Ball appeared in one game and spent time on their practice squad before being released October 11. He also spent a very brief time on the practice squad of the Jacksonville Jaguars before signing with the 49ers.

McManis spent training camp with the 49ers after being signed on May 2. He was released on August 27.

49ers Notebook: Brock Purdy's draft surprise, Tariq Castro-Fields on his NFL readiness, and more

Rookie minicamp gets underway Friday for 49ers drafted players and undrafted free agents, but before those players take the field, they were hit with a number of questions from reporters during pre-camp media sessions on Thursday. Among the players to speak with reporters on Thursday were wide receiver and third-round pick Danny Gray (SMU), offensive lineman and fourth-round pick Spencer Burford (UT-San Antonio), cornerback and sixth-round pick Tariq Castro-Fields (Penn State), quarterback and seventh-round pick Brock Purdy (Iowa State), and undrafted offensive linemen Jason Poe (Mercer) and Dohnovan West (Arizona State). 49ers WebZone already discussed what Gray said



Why the 49ers drafted a running back in the third round

By Rohan Chakravarthi

With their first 2022 NFL Draft selection not coming until No. 61 overall, the San Francisco 49ers were required to remain patient without a first-round selection for the first time in the Lynch-Shanahan era due to last year's trade-up to select quarterback Trey Lance with the third overall pick. With that first selection, the 49ers took USC edge rusher Drake Jackson, who some analysts considered a fringe first-round talent, making it shocking that he was still available near the end of the second round. However, with their second selection at pick No. 93, the 49ers surprised many, drafting LSU running back Tyrion Davis-Price, who not only was a player at a position of low value, but also a player projected to go potentially one or two rounds later. So, why did



Are the 49ers mending their relationship with WR Deebo Samuel?

Late Wednesday night, San Francisco 49ers fans sighed in relief as wide receiver Deebo Samuel reportedly followed the team on Instagram once again, which could be a sign that the relationship is getting back on track. Samuel, who scrubbed his account of everything 49ers related on April 7th, which was around the time of his reported trade request, was not moved during the draft as the 49ers stayed firm with their decision despite fielding multiple offers for the star receiver. Now, almost a month later, Samuel has re-followed the team, once again utilizing his power of social media to express his



Cowherd: It's time for the 49ers to go 'all in' with Trey Lance

By David Bonilla

On Thursday, FanSided national reporter Matt Lombardo tweeted out that the San Francisco 49ers are "continually underwhelmed" by Trey Lance. While most quickly dismissed the report, given the team's consistent praise of the second-year quarterback, Colin Cowherd offered a reaction on his FS1 show. The longtime host believes it's time for the 49ers to answer their doubters and go "all in" on their young quarterback. I have heard that the #49ers' staff has been continually underwhelmed by Trey Lance …
