Niners HC Kyle Shanahan expects to get LB Dre Greenlaw activated ahead of Sunday's game against the Vikings, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic. Greenlaw has been out since suffering a groin injury back in Week 1, so it's tough to expect an immediate return to full playing time. We'll see if we hear anything else about the LB plan for Sunday's game. If we don't, it'll be risky to use either Greenlaw or Azeez Al-Shaair in IDP lineups this week.
Niners LB Dre Greenlaw needs surgery for the groin injury he suffered in Sunday's win over the Lions. ESPN's Nick Wagoner reports that Greenlaw is expected to "be out into November before being reassessed." Although the 49ers hope to get him back this season, that timeline means you can go ahead and drop Greenlaw in nearly all IDP redraft leagues. Azeez Al-Shaair will fill in as the #2 LB alongside Fred Warner. Al-Shaair tallied 7 tackles, 2 tackles for loss and 2 passes defensed in Week 1.
Niners LB Dre Greenlaw left Sunday's win over the Lions just before halftime with a groin injury and did not return. Azeez Al-Shaair got a playing-time boost, spending 78% of the snaps on the field in all. He'd be in play for deeper IDP leagues should Greenlaw miss further time. We'll keep an eye out this work for more details on the injury.
The 49ers have ruled LB Dre Greenlaw (calf) out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. Azeez Al-Shaair looks like his playing-time replacement. No other Niners LB behind Al-Shaair, Greenlaw and Fred Warner has played more than 28 snaps on the season.
Niners LB Dre Greenlaw (illness) is active for today's game against the Rams. Use him as you normally would in IDP leagues.
