Daniel Kilgore activated to 53-man roster

Dec 5, 2015 at 1:28 PM--


San Francisco 49ers C Daniel Kilgore has been removed from the team's PUP (Physically unable to perform) list and activated to the 53-man roster. It was reported on Friday that he would travel with the team to Chicago for their Sunday game against the Bears.

"I'd like to have something to build off of for the offseason, see where I am," he said Wednesday. "I don't want to do all this training for nothing."

To make room for Kilgore, the team waived LB Shayne Skov.

Kilgore, the former starter at center, last played in October of 2014, when he broke his ankle in a game against the Denver Broncos. The team had until Monday to activate him or they would have to end the possibility of a return this season.

C Marcus Martin has started in place of Kilgore for the 49ers this season. Pro Football Focus has him ranked last among centers in the NFL.

Kilgore was drafted out of Appalachian State by the 49ers in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL Draft.

NFL.com writer Kevin Patra took a look around the league and ranked the 10 biggest remaining roster holes heading into training camp. Some teams appear set for the 2022 season. Others still have work to do, finding solutions to bolster potential weaknesses. Patra looked at each team's biggest weakness and ranked it against other teams' biggest weaknesses. The San Francisco 49ers came in at No. 2, with the center position being identified as the Bay Area team's biggest weakness. Assuming right tackle Mike McGlinchey returns healthy, the 49ers appear set (as far as knowing who the starters will be) along the edges of the offensive line.
