49ers LB Dre Greenlaw undergoing surgery, will miss time

Sep 16, 2021 at 12:17 PM--


San Francisco 49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw will undergo a procedure to repair a groin injury, per Matt Barrows of The Athletic. It is not expected to end his season but the defender will obviously miss some time. While Barrows initially reported that timeline to be about four to six weeks, NFL insider Ian Rapoport reports it to be six to eight weeks.


Greenlaw suffered the injury during the 49ers' Week 1 victory over the Detroit Lions. The linebacker has not practiced since.

San Francisco made Greenlaw (6-0, 227) a fifth-round selection out of Arkansas in 2019. He registered six tackles, a pass defensed, and an interception on Sunday against the Lions. The linebacker returned that interception of quarterback Jared Goff for a touchdown.

Greenlaw, 24, has recorded 172 tackles, two sacks, four passes defensed, two interceptions, and a touchdown in 30 game appearances (23 starts) through his three NFL seasons.

Former San Francisco 49ers tackle Joe Staley, now an analyst with NBC Sports Bay Area, shared the story of how he learned about the DeForest Buckner trade last year. Needless to say, he was shocked. Staley had hoped for Buckner to carry on the leadership role after the offensive lineman decided to retire. "Back in March, I had made the decision with my family that I was going to retire and step away from the football field," Staley said during the 49ers pre-game show. "And DeForest was one of the first players that I wanted to go talk to. I kind of wanted to pass the torch a little bit, [say], 'This is going to be your team now,' because he's looked at and viewed on that team as being the culture set or the leader of that squad.
