The 49ers on Friday activated LB Kwon Alexander (pectoral) from IR. He is expected to play today against the Vikings. NBC Sports Bay Area reports that Alexander's fill-in, rookie Dre Greenlaw, will continue to play a key role. It's not yet clear which guy will start and how much each will play. Fred Warner looks like the only San Francisco ILB who should be in your IDP lineups if you're setting those today. With Alexander back and DE Dee Ford potentially back (he's questionable after missing basically the past 6 games), the Niners' defense on whole could be at its strongest in weeks.

Niners LB Kwon Alexander tore a pectoral muscle in Thursday night's game against the Cardinals and will miss the rest of the season, according to multiple reports. HC Kyle Shanahan said Friday that rookie Dre Greenlaw will step into Alexander's spot, according to Niners Nation.

Niners LB Kwon Alexander got kicked out in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers after delivering a blow to the head of QB Jameis Winston, a former teammate. We'll see if the incident affects Alexander's availability for Week 2.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the 49ers have reached a 4-year, $54 million deal with LB Kwon Alexander. They can't finalize the contract until Wednesday afternoon. Alexander will join a LB corps that saw rookie Fred Warner play mostly on the inside last year. We'd bet on Alexander taking over the middle, though, and Warner playing the weak side. There's room for both to produce quality IDP numbers. Alexander is coming off a left ACL tear, but the new contract indicates little concern over his recovery. We'll certainly keep an eye on his progress through the spring and summer. We'll also see whether the Bucs stick with 2018 rookie Adarius Taylor at MLB or go in another direction.

An MRI has confirmed that Buccaneers MLB Kwon Alexander tore his left ACL in Sunday's win over the Browns, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. That will end the LB's season after just 6 games. It marks the 3rd time in his 4 pro seasons that Alexander has played 12 games or fewer (the 1st of those because of a PED suspension). LB Adarius Taylor played a season-high 62% of the defensive snaps against Cleveland. That marked the 4th straight week in which his playing time increased. Taylor certainly looks like the biggest beneficiary of the Alexander injury. We'd like to wait and see just how much the strong-side starter plays against the Bengals in Week 8 before using him in IDP lineups.
