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.
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 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.
The 49ers on Monday announced a 5-year, $85 million extension for DE Arik Armstead, keeping him from hitting free agency. Armstead started his career a bit slowly, including missing 18 games across 2016-17. But he broke out with 10 sacks and 18 QB hits in his 5th season and won't turn 27 until mid-November. Expect Armstead to land in DL2 territory in our 2020 IDP rankings.
