49ers activate LB Dre Greenlaw ahead of game vs. Vikings

Nov 27, 2021 at 1:18 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers announced that they have activated linebacker Dre Greenlaw from the injured reserve list ahead of their Week 12 home game against the Minnesota Vikings. The defender landed on injured reserve on September 18 after undergoing surgery to repair a core muscle injury. The 49ers opened Greenlaw's practice window on November 17.

Greenlaw, 24, has recorded 184 tackles, two sacks, four passes defensed, two interceptions, and a touchdown in 30 game appearances (23 starts) through his three NFL seasons, per Pro Football Reference.

San Francisco did not activate Dee Ford. Head coach Kyle Shanahan was hopeful the veteran pass rusher would be available this weekend after the team opened his practice window on Thursday. He landed on injured reserve on November 6 due to a back injury.

The 49ers did not announce any other roster moves on Saturday.

The 49ers protected three practice squad players on Tuesday, preventing other teams from signing them to an active roster. They are linebacker Tyrell Adams, defensive back Davontae Harris, and tight end Tanner Hudson. San Francisco also signed wide receiver Devin Funchess and cornerback Luq Barcoo to the practice squad this week.

San Francisco and Minnesota each enter Week 12 with a 5-5 record. Kickoff between the two teams is scheduled for 1:25 p.m. PT from Levi's Stadium. The 49ers are currently a 3.5-point favorite.

The two teams will announce their inactive players 90 minutes ahead of kickoff.

Also of note, Jacksonville Jaguars defensive back Rayshawn Jenkins was fined $10,815 for punching 49ers wide receiver Jauan Jennings last weekend.

Naming the best player in the NFL can create much discussion and debate. If you ask San Francisco 49ers defenders, the answer isn't too difficult. Take Dre Greenlaw, for instance. Greenlaw was recently asked about going against nine-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle Trent Williams in practice. The first words out of the fourth-year linebacker's mouth prove how much his teammates respect Williams. "Trent's the best player in the NFL, for sure. No doubt," Greenlaw told reporters on Monday. "In that regard, you better know your leverage. If you've got a guy like Trent coming at you, you better know if you're supposed to be inside of him or outside of him because if you go down the middle, he going to flatten you." That's the best player in the NFL. The entire

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters before Saturday's practice, the ninth of training camp. Here is everything he had to say. Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. We saw WR Deebo Samuel and QB Trey Lance doing some after practice stuff yesterday. Where are they in terms of their chemistry and are you confident that that can be sort of bridged before the season begins? "Yeah, definitely. I think a lot of that stuff's overrated, personally. I think it's just about getting Deebo back in practice consistently with the reps. We've eased him in with him having a late start. He's just starting to get up to normal practice, I think it'll be here in the next couple of
