Lynch had a big game Thursday, getting to the quarterback twice and recording five tackles (all solo) in the loss to Seattle. Lynch has been one of the lone bright spots on defense for the 49ers this year. He is well on his way to eclipsing the 6.0 sacks he recording during his rookie campaign in 2014. While he doesn't rack up a ton of tackles, it is worth noting that all but one of his 22 tackles this year have been of the solo variety.
49ers linebacker Aaron Lynch got to the quarterback twice Sunday, finishing with four tackles (all solo) in addition to the pair of sacks. What was even more impressive than recording two sacks was that Lynch did it to one of the more evasive pocket passers in the game, Aaron Rodgers. The pair of sacks brings his season total to three, and he should continue to be a great source of sacks for the rest of the season.
The 49ers placed RB Carlos Hyde on the non-football injury list. Hyde was bothered by a leg strain in the offseason, although the team didn't say whether that was the injury that landed him on the injured list. Linebacker Aaron Lynch (leg), wide receiver DeAndre Smelter (knee) and offensive tackle Trent Brown (unknown injury) were also placed on non-football injury, while center Daniel Kilgore was placed on the physically unable to perform list, recovering from a fractured leg.
The 49ers activated linebacker Aaron Lynch (hamstring) from the physically unable to participate list and center Marcus Martin (ankle) from the non-football injury list.
The 49ers placed six players on the non-football injury list, including second-year running back Marcus Lattimore (knee). Also on the list are receiver Bruce Ellington, center Marcus Martin, fullback Trey Millard, cornerback Keith Reaser and guard Brandon Thomas. In addition, the team placed nose tackle Ian Williams (ankle) on the PUP list along with linebacker Aaron Lynch (hamstring) and defensive lineman Kaleb Ramsey. All the players can come off the list and start practicing at any time.
