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.
