Rapoport: 49ers’ Dre Greenlaw a ‘long-shot’ to play vs. Seahawks

Dec 1, 2021 at 11:17 AM--


According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, San Francisco 49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw is a "long-shot" to play against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. However, Rapoport notes that the 49ers have not ruled out the defender. Greenlaw won't practice today, and the team will monitor him through the week.


The 49ers have already ruled out linebacker Fred Warner, who suffered a hamstring strain against the Minnesota Vikings this past weekend. However, San Francisco hopes to have him back for Week 14 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Greenlaw irritated his core muscle injury against the Vikings, and head coach Kyle Shanahan declared him to be day-to-day this week. It's the same injury that landed Greenlaw on injured reserve after Week 1.

"We'll see how this week goes," Shanahan said on Monday.

San Francisco made Greenlaw a fifth-round draft pick in 2019. In three NFL seasons, he has recorded 187 tackles, 10 tackles for a loss, two sacks, four quarterback hits, two interceptions, a touchdown, and four passes defended through 31 game appearances and 23 starts.

The absence of Greenlaw leaves the 49ers with linebackers Azeez Al-Shaair, Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles, and Marcell Harris. Harris, however, is in the concussion protocol this week. The team also has Tyrell Adams on the practice squad.

49ers LB Dre Greenlaw: 'No doubt we're the best defense on the planet'

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



Rapoport: 49ers remain committed to Trey Lance in 2022

Sunday could be quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's final game in red and gold. Of course, the San Francisco 49ers hope Garoppolo keeps playing beyond this weekend, but not necessarily beyond the playoffs. That's because most believe the team wants to transition to its No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance, for 2022. "My understanding is the 49ers are still committed to first-round pick Trey Lance as their starter moving forward, which means they're expected to explore trade options for Garoppolo," Ian Rapoport said on NFL Network. "And for his part, he really seems to be soaking it in and savoring this moment. Don't take my word for it. Garoppolo actually told [The] MMQB, earlier in the week, that he thought before the last game, 'This could be



Rapoport discusses injuries to 49ers defenders Nick Bosa, Fred Warner

The San Francisco 49ers finished Sunday's game without two of their best defenders. Pass rusher Nick Bosa left the game at the end of the first half and was ruled out with a concussion. Linebacker Fred Warner exited the second half and did not return due to an ankle injury. "On Nick Bosa's concussion, my information is that I cannot speculate on a concussion," NFL insider Ian Rapoport said Monday morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "And it's not just me. It's impossible. Teammates sounded like he was talking in the locker room and OK, but that doesn't actually mean anything because everyone recovers from concussions differently, and you can't tough it out." Bosa has hurdles to get past to play in Saturday's playoff game against the Green Bay Packers,



Rapoport believes the trade market for 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo will be good

Former San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman, now with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, showed his former quarterback some love on Sunday during the Niners' playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys. Hope the faithful show my guy @JimmyG_10 the love he deserves. There is a reason he has so much love and respect from his teammates.— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) January 16,
