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.

Trent Williams draws praise from 49ers teammates Dre Greenlaw and Drake Jackson

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



Rapoport: 49ers willing to hold onto Jimmy Garoppolo until cut-down day

Jimmy Garoppolo isn't practicing, but he is throwing next to his soon-to-be former San Francisco 49ers teammates. He looks healthy, too, according to one reporter. "I watched Jimmy Garoppolo make about 25 full-tilt throws to a junior staffer on a side field during the 49ers' training-camp practice Friday," wrote Tim Kawakami of The Athletic, "and there's no question he's close to 100 percent healed after his March shoulder surgery and one of the top 32 QBs in the league right now. Maybe it's a shorter list than 32." The quarterback is cleared to do whatever he needs within the restrictions of his rehabilitation from that March 8 procedure. He has full



Rapoport: 49ers' talent can carry Trey Lance through 'up and down' season

The San Francisco 49ers are off today. The team returns to the practice field tomorrow. Anyone that follows the team even somewhat closely knows that second-year quarterback Trey Lance has had an up and down training camp. That was to be expected. This offseason is his first taking the majority of the quarterback snaps. Plus, Lance is going against what many expect to be one of this season's top defenses and has had starters in and out of the offense while doing so. NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport joined the PatMcAfee Show and shared what he's heard about and witnessed from last year's No. 3 overall pick. While none of it is new information, Rapoport still discussed Lance's "up and down" training camp. McAfee hilariously expressed shock as if the report



Trent Williams explains how Deebo Samuel inspires teammates, why 49ers will be good 'for a long time'

Trent Williams spoke with reporters after Monday's training camp practice. With his San Francisco 49ers teammate, Deebo Samuel, having recently signed a massive contract extension, the conversation naturally included questions about the star wide receiver. Before practice, head coach Kyle Shanahan praised Samuel's influence on the team. "My favorite thing about Deebo is how much he inspires people," Shanahan told reporters. "And he inspires me more than almost any player I've watched on the field, the way he runs the ball, whether you're handing it to him, whether you're throwing it to him, whether he's catching it on a kick. And these aren't things you
