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.

The San Francisco 49ers underwent an impressive turnaround this season. Many left them for dead, especially following an embarrassing November 7, 2021 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, who were missing several starters. Some joked that the Cardinals' practice squad had knocked off the Niners, and just like that, San Francisco was 3-5. After that, the 49ers went 7-2, clinching a playoff berth in the final regular-season game against the Los Angeles Rams. The Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers probably regret the Rams not being able to eliminate the 49ers. Both were knocked out of the postseason by Kyle Shanahan's squad. Linebacker Dre Greenlaw was part of that last matchup against the Rams. Before that, he had to watch much of the season from the outside, unable to

Whenever the 49ers travel to Green Bay to play the Packers, the team normally stays in a hotel in Appleton, Wisconsin, about a half-hour away from Lambeau Field, where the Packers play. So, it was to Bay Port high students' amazement that the 49ers practiced on their field Friday afternoon to prepare for the potential sub-zero Green Bay weather, hence why Lambeau Field has been coined the Frozen Tundra. Bay Port junior Aiden Wright couldn't believe that the 49ers were practicing at his own high school, given their normal tendencies when playing the Packers. "I didn't really think it was
