Wilhoite (ankle) was placed on IR on Saturday. With Wilhoite ruled out for the season finale, the 49ers opted to clear up a roster spot for Mike Davis (hand). Wilhoite had a career year, posting 85 tackles in just 12 games, but the 49ers would probably rather see Gerald Hodges starting in 2016.
Wilhoite (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports. With Wilhoite out for a second straight game, Gerald Hodges figures to get another start alongside NaVorro Bowman at inside linebacker. Hodgers had seven tackles (four solo) on 71 defensive snaps in a Week 14 loss to the Browns.
Wilhoite (ankle) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, John Dickinson of 95.7 The Game reports. Prior to drills, head coach Jim Tomsula said that Wilhoite is "week-to-week" due to an ankle injury, which doesn't bode well for active status Sunday versus the Bengals. If Wilhoite misses a second consecutive contest, Gerald Hodges would likely get another nod at inside linebacker.
Wilhoite (ankle) will not travel to Cleveland for Sunday's game against the Browns, the San Jose Mercury News reports. Wilhoite can thus be ruled out for at least one game, allowing Gerald Hodges to start alongside NaVorro Bowman at inside linebacker. Wilhoite oddly had 51 tackles over a four-week stretch in October, but he's otherwise been a poor IDP option.
Wilhoite (ankle) won't participate in Wednesday's practice, John Dickinson of 95.7 The Game San Francisco reports. Wilhoite was knocked out of Sunday's win at Chicago after just seven snaps due to an ankle injury, forcing his first zero-tackle effort of the season. The absence will extend into Week 14 prep, but his progress, or lack thereof, as the week proceeds will help determine his availability for Sunday's contest in Cleveland.
