49ers’ Dre Greenlaw shares rehab photo, aims for Week 1 return

Dre Greenlaw has his sights set on returning to the football field in Week 1 of the 2024 season. The San Francisco 49ers linebacker sustained a non-contact torn Achilles last month during the team's Super Bowl loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, dealing a significant blow to a team that fought into overtime in the NFL championship game.

Greenlaw underwent surgery on February 15 and recently shared a photo on Instagram of his rehabilitation from the Achilles injury.


The 49ers are approaching his recovery with patience and signed All-Pro linebacker De'Vondre Campbell to a one-year deal as an insurance policy.

"I think that De'Vondre gives us the opportunity of a guy who plays the way we play, a guy who's got a ton of experience that can fill in for Dre if he's not there," stated general manager John Lynch at the NFL owners meetings.

However, Lynch believes Greenlaw is determined to be available for the start of the regular season, commenting, "Dre will tell you he's going to be back Week 1. I don't put anything past Dre, but we have to be smart. Maybe a PUP (Physically Unable to Perform list) situation."

Greenlaw and linebacker Fred Warner have formed one of the top linebacker duos in the NFL, with many considering them the best.

"I have no doubt in my mind he'll come back better than he was," Warner said last month. "He's made of the right stuff, and, yeah, he'll be back."

Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports that Dre Greenlaw will receive the Dwight Clark Award this year. The San Francisco 49ers linebacker will take the stage on Thursday, May 16, at the fourth annual Dwight Clark Legacy Series in San Jose to accept the prestigious award. Each year, a current 49ers player is honored with the Dwight Clark Legacy Award, presented to a player who best exemplifies the late receiver's spirit of teamwork. Linebacker Fred Warner was the recipient last year. Defensive lineman Arik Armstead, now with the Jacksonville Jaguars, was the recipient in 2022, while tight end George Kittle earned the first-ever award in 2021. "Dre is more than deserving of the 2024 Dwight Clark Award," Warner said of his teammate, per Maiocco. "The

49ers' Fred Warner addresses Armstead's departure, Greenlaw's recovery, Super Bowl window

By David Bonilla
Apr 22

The news of Arik Armstead's departure from the San Francisco 49ers after nine seasons with the team shocked linebacker Fred Warner. Armstead, a former first-round pick, was an impactful force on the football field. However, his availability over the last two seasons forced the 49ers to reevaluate his contract, and when his salary could not be significantly reduced, the two sides parted ways. "Huge surprise," Warner said of learning that Armstead was being released. "Ever since I've been here, we called him the blueprint for how to be a Niner. That was the longest-tenured Niner that's been here and a guy that's done it right through and through." Warner has been in the NFL long enough to understand how the league works. Over the years, he's watched several
