49ers to bring in 2nd-year DL for 2nd workout, per report

The San Francisco 49ers are bringing in former Kentucky defensive lineman T.J. Carter for a second workout on Sunday, Marco Martinez of the "49ers RedZone" podcast tweeted out on Saturday.

Carter, who spent time with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2021 before being released, worked out with the 49ers on Monday, along with fellow defensive linemen Robert Nkemdiche and Tomasi Laulile, and will now get a second workout with the team.

The 49ers signed Nkemdiche ahead of training camp earlier this week, then brought in Laulile after the release of Dee Ford on Thursday, once again bringing their total roster count to 90 players (the maximum).

If Carter does indeed sign with the 49ers after his second workout, there may be a corresponding cut by the organization. Currently, the 49ers have 17 defensive linemen, so it would likely be one of them should the second-year defensive lineman get a contract.

My early expectation would be veteran Alex Barrett, who has been the odd man out during San Francisco's four defensive line sets of four players during the first few days of practice. Barrett has primarily been seen on special teams sets at training camp.

Earlier on Thursday, head coach Kyle Shanahan did confirm that veteran defensive lineman Arik Armstead suffered an MCL sprain on the first day of practice, and will miss several weeks, which likely takes him out until Week 1. The 49ers signed Laulile a few afters after the Armstead news broke.

UPDATE: Kyle Shanahan announced on Saturday morning that defensive lineman Maurice Hurst tore his biceps during Friday's practice. He will miss the 2022 season.

I'd now expect the 49ers to sign Carter with the corresponding move placing Hurst on Injured Reserve, as that would free up a roster spot.

49ers Notebook: Shanahan talks Saints, 2nd-half shutouts, rushing attack; Ryans on teammates helping Bosa

The San Francisco 49ers have won three consecutive games and are probably feeling pretty good heading into their Week 12 matchup against the New Orleans Saints. No one is overlooking the 4-7 team, though. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has been impressed with New Orleans' defense, understanding that the 49ers' seventh win of the season won't come easy. "Just starting with their defense, they look like a [Saints head coach] Dennis Allen team," Shanahan said. "They've been, to me, one of the best defenses in the league here over the last five or six years. I don't think their numbers are quite there as they usually are, but I think a lot of that has to do with they've been missing about seven starters a number of these games. But they are as tough, and physical, and as sound as

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo on NFL future: "I'll worry about that at the end of the year"

Jimmy Garoppolo is setting himself up for a nice payday next year. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback is scheduled to be a free agent, and his market is expected to be much improved compared to this past offseason. Garoppolo expected to be elsewhere this season, even after his trade stock plummeted following offseason shoulder surgery. With no one interested in a quarterback going through rehab, Garoppolo signed a restructured one-year deal with the 49ers to serve as Trey Lance's backup. The one caveat being that San Francisco couldn't use the franchise tag on him in 2023, allowing him to test the free agent market freely. Garoppolo entered the season looking to support Lance and do what he could in his role as QB2. However, everything changed in Week 2 when

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 12 contest against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. The 49ers held a light practice on Wednesday, a precaution given the quick turnaround from Monday night's game in Mexico City against the Arizona Cardinals. The team didn't arrive back in the Bay Area until 6:15 a.m. on Tuesday and pushed the start time for Wednesday's practice back to 4:03 p.m. "We're starting a lot later, and we'll just walk-through today," head coach Kyle Shanahan said before practice. "And we've got to mix in Thanksgiving a little bit on Thursday, so we'll dial things back a little bit for that also." Wednesday's practice took place inside Levi's Stadium, something that doesn't

49ers-Saints Injury Report: Deebo Samuel still listed as "limited"

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 12 contest against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. The media did not have access to watch the Thanksgiving practice. The team gave them the day off due to the holiday. That means there are no observations to report from the Thursday session, which was a lighter walk-through. Reporters will return to watch the last practice of the week, which begins on Friday at 12:18 p.m. PT. On Wednesday, the 49ers were without defensive lineman Arik Armstead, and wide receiver Deebo Samuel and defensive end Samson Ebukam were limited. That remained the case on Thursday. Tackle Trent Williams returned from his veteran day off. Below are Thursday's
