49ers activate LB Mark Nzeocha from IR, place TE Charlie Woerner on COVID-19 list

Dec 19, 2020 at 2:10 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers announced several roster moves ahead of their Sunday road matchup against the Dallas Cowboys. The team has activated linebacker Mark Nzeocha from the injured reserve list. San Francisco placed him on injured reserve on September 30 due to a quad injury.

The 49ers added tight end Charlie Woerner to the reserve/COVID-19 list.

The team also activated/flexed the following three players from the practice squad as COVID-19 replacements.

  • TE Daniel Helm
  • OL Dakoda Shepley
  • OL Isaiah Williams

The 49ers now have the following three players on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

  • OL Colton McKivitz, added December 16
  • RB Austin Walter, added December 17
  • TE Charlie Woerner, added December 19

The reserve/COVID-19 list has been created for a player who tests positive for COVID-19 or has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons. If a player falls into either of these categories, his club is required to immediately place the player on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Clubs are not permitted to comment on a player's medical status other than referring to the roster status and may not disclose whether the player is in quarantine or is positive for COVID-19.

Offensive line coach John Benton is expected to miss his second consecutive game after testing positive for COVID-19 on December 13.

There's a lot to unpack from Saturday night's memorable 13-10 win for the San Francisco 49ers over the Green Bay Packers, but some of the biggest news to surface since that game came to an end involves the legendary quarterback the 49ers faced in their latest playoff victory—and the one they could face next week. Keep in mind there are still a lot of unknowns here, including (as of Sunday morning) whether or not the 49ers will even get this opportunity when they battle in the NFC Championship next Sunday (6:40 p.m. ET/3:40 p.m. PT, FOX). But based on what Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Saturday night to go with what's been reported about Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady over the past 24 hours, it's not incorrect to say the 49ers could conceivably be the team to
