DiManche was waived by the 49ers on Tuesday, Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports. DiManche inked a deal with the 49ers about a month ago after playing in just one game with the Browns over the past two seasons. The fact that he's being let go this early in the offseason isn't encouraging about the potential for DiManche to make a regular-season roster, but he'll continue to work out over the summer with the hope of receiving a training camp invite elsewhere.
DiManche signed a contract with the 49ers on Friday, the team's official site reports. DiManche played two seasons (2013-14) with the Bengals, spending most of his time as a special teams contributor. The undrafted rookie free agent has been bouncing around the league for the past couple of years but will look to secure a spot on the 53-man roster this offseason.
The Bengals will be without the services of linebackers Vontaze Burfict (knee) and Jayson DiManche (forearm) for Week 14 against Pittsburgh. Burfict and DiManche were the only two players ruled out for the game, but defensive end Margus Hunt (ankle) and wide receiver James Wright (knee) could join them come Sunday. Both Hunt and Wright were labeled as doubtful for the game. Meanwhile, defensive tackle Domata Peko (elbow) was the only player on the report deemed questionable, while defensive end Robert Geathers (hip), wide receiver A.J. Green (thigh), tight end Ryan Hewitt (illness), cornerback Adam Jones (concussion), tackle Marshall Newhouse (hip) and guard/center Mike Pollak (knee) were listed as probable.
The Bengals announced Monday they placed linebacker Jayson DiManche on season-ending injured reserve due to a broken forearm. He suffered the injury Sunday against the Bucs. DiManche finishes the season with 10 tackles (seven solo) in 12 games.
All the Bengals who were probable or questionable on the injury report are active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars. The list includes linebacker Jayson DiManche (shoulder), defensive end Carlos Dunlap (illness), cornerback Terence Newman (back), defensive tackle Domata Peko (toe), guard Mike Pollak (knee), defensive tackle Brandon Thompson (knee) and offensive tackle Andre Smith (knee).
