Arik Armstead Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Shark Bites are the latest fantasy football news & NFL updates. Draft Sharks has been in business since 1999. And when we started, redraft was the dominant form of fantasy football. Check out what we've learned about this most basic form of fantasy football along the way.

The 49ers could be without LB Dre Greenlaw for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He's questionable with hip and ankle injuries after managing just one limited practice Friday. DC Steve Wilks said Thursday that he expected Greenlaw to play, according to The Athletic's Matt Barrows. CB Charvarius Ward (groin) is also questionable after following the same practice schedule. We'll watch for more on both players over the weekend. The 49ers have ruled out DT Javon Hargrave and DL Arik Armstead.

Niners LB Dre Greenlaw is considered "day-to-day" as he deals with hip and ankle injuries, according to Niners Nation. Greenlaw temporarily left Sunday's win over the Seahawks but played 95% of snaps. He seems like a good bet to be ready for Week 15. DL Arik Armstead "might miss one more game," HC Kyle Shanahan told reporters Monday. DT Javon Hargrave (hamstring) and CB Charvarius Ward (groin) have a "chance" to play. Both left Sunday's game early and did not return. We'll check their statuses through the practice week.

The 49ers have agreed to a four-year deal with DT Javon Hargrave. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that it's worth $84 million overall, with $40 million of that guaranteed at signing. Hargrave delivered a career-high 11 sacks in 2022, his third season with the Eagles after arriving as a free agent. He racked up 34 QB hits over the past two years after topping out at 8 over his first five seasons. Hargrave's arrival could challenge the role of fourth-year DT Javon Kinlaw. The former first-round pick played in just 10 total games over the past two seasons because of injuries. Arik Armstead remains as well. Hargrave played 64.4% and 68.4% of the snaps over the past two years, so there's room for a three-man rotation. Hargrave should be the first (and maybe only in most cases) among the three to go in 2023 IDP drafts.

Niners DL Arik Armstead (foot, ankle) put in a limited practice Wednesday. It marked the 1st time he has participated in a Wednesday practice since Week 1 and just his 3rd limited workout since then. Armstead has been dealing with lower-body issues all season. We'll see whether he's finally ready to return to game action for what would be the 1st time since Week 4.

The 49ers got LB Dre Greenlaw (calf) back for a limited practice Wednesday. He missed the last game (Week 8) with the injury that knocked him out of the loss to the Chiefs. We'll watch to see whether he's ready to return to the lineup this Sunday against the Chargers. DL Arik Armstead (foot, ankle) remained out Wednesday, which doesn't bode well for his chances of playing for the 1st time since Week 4. EDGE Samson Ebukam (quad, Achilles') also didn't practice.

Niners DL Arik Armstead said Monday his return to action is "coming soon," according to NBC Sports Bay Area. Armstead revealed that he has been recovering from a hairline fracture in his left ankle. That plus plantar fasciitis in his left foot have kept him out since Week 4. We'll see whether Armstead is ready for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

The 49ers have ruled LB Dre Greenlaw (calf) and DL Arik Armstead (foot, ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Rams. Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles looks like the fill-in for Greenlaw. Armstead will be missing his 4th straight game.

Niners S Talanoa Hufanga (concussion) and CB Charvarius Ward (groin) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs. DL Arik Armstead (foot, ankle) has been ruled out. It'll be the 3rd straight game he has missed.

Niners EDGE Nick Bosa is off the injury report and ready to play Sunday's game against the Chiefs. S Talanoa Hufanga (concussion) is questionable. He managed just a single limited practice and seems unlikely to play. CB Charvarius Ward (groin) is questionable as well. The 49ers have ruled DL Arik Armstead (foot, ankle) out.

Niners EDGE Nick Bosa (groin) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons. DL Arik Armstead (foot, ankle) and DT Javon Kinlaw (knee) are out. Bosa missed the week's 1st 2 practices after leaving last week's win over the Panthers early. He returned for a limited Friday workout. We'll check his status Sunday.

The 49ers have ruled DE Arik Armstead (foot, ankle) and DT Javon Kinlaw (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Panthers. That damages both the run D and pass rush for San Francisco. We'll see, though, whether the Carolina offense can take advantage. We'd still feel comfy using the Niners' team D in fantasy football lineups.

Niners DL Arik Armstead left Monday night's game against the Rams with a foot injury. He has been dealing with plantar fasciitis. We'll see about his status for Week 5.

Niners DL Arik Armstead is expected to miss "a few weeks" after spraining his right knee this week. That's what HC Kyle Shanahan told reporters Friday, according to ESPN's Nick Wagoner. Armstead reportedly thought it was a bruise at first, but MRI revealed the more significant injury. There's still time for the vet to work beyond the issue ahead of the regular season. We'll see, though, whether it remains a factor come Week 1. Armstead opened camp as a DT this year after shifting between end and tackle in 2021.

Niners CB Emmanuel Moseley (knee), DE Arik Armstead (adductor) and DT Javon Kinlaw (knee) are questionable for Sunday night's game against the Packers. Armstead and Kinlaw played through questionable tags in Week 2. Moseley has yet to play this season.

Niners DE Arik Armstead (adductor) and DT Javon Kinlaw (knee) are active for today's game against the Eagles. Each player entered the day questionable. Their presence obviously helps, though it's still not a worrisome matchup for QB Jalen Hurts or RB Miles Sanders.

The 49ers are "optimistic" that DE Arik Armstead (adductor) and DT Javon Kinlaw (knee) will be active for today's game against the Eagles, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Both are officially questionable, so we'll have to check their statuses later this morning. Each is just a lower-level IDP prospect, but their presence would obviously help the San Francisco defense. That said, we'd rather not use the unit either way against a Philly offense with plenty of scoring potential.

Niners CB Emmanuel Moseley (knee) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Eagles. He missed Week 1 and looks like he'll do the same thing. That leaves San Francisco without its top 2 corners, as Jason Verrett went down for the season in Week 1. DE Arik Armstead (adductor) and DT Javon Kinlaw (knee) are questionable. We'll see about their statuses Sunday morning.
