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.

"Everything has definitely slowed down": 49ers QB Trey Lance more comfortable in 2nd season

KNBR was live at the San Francisco 49ers facility in Santa Clara and had an opportunity to speak with Trey Lance. The second-year quarterback feels more acclimated to the area and the team following a whirlwind 2021 campaign. "I know where all the Chipotles are nearby and everything like that," Lance said jokingly. "For me, I just feel so much more comfortable. I know the guys in the locker room so much better. I'm obviously in a very different position than I was last year, and it's just been a ton of fun." A "very different position" is correct. Last season, Lance served as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup, learning from the veteran quarterback. He has been handed the reins this offseason and will be the team's QB1 come Week 1.
