The Seahawks are on the verge of signing former 49ers linebacker Nick Moody, according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Moody was a sixth-round pick in 2013 who played in 20 games for San Francisco and contributed to 25 tackles.
49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman did not play last season after suffering a devastating knee injury in the NFC Championship Game following the 2013 season. "We're very confident with where he's at with his recovery," general manager Trent Baalke told CSN Bay Area. Baalke expects Bowman and Michael Wilhoite to be the team's starting inside linebackers this season, with Nick Moody a key contributor.
Several 49ers who were on the injury report are active for Monday's game in St. Louis. They include cornerback Chris Cook (quadriceps), defensive tackle Tony Jerod-Eddie (shoulder), punter Andy Lee (ankle), defensive tackle Ray McDonald (knee), linebacker Nick Moody (hamstring) and nose tackle Ian Williams (ankle).
The 49ers have listed four players as questionable Week 6. Anthony Davis, Vernon Davis, Marcus Martin and Nick Moody will all be game-time decisions for the contest. Moody is dealing with a hamstring injury, while Martin has a knee issue.
49ers linebacker Nick Moody left the game against Kansas City in the third quarter with a hamstring injury, the team announced. He is questionable to return.
