Dumervil signed a two-year contract Monday with the 49ers, Conor Orr of NFL.com reports. After being let go by the Ravens in March, Dumervil will latch on with the rebuilding 49ers, providing a veteran presence to a young core of pass rushers. The 33-year-old appears likely to take on a rotational rusher role, but will also serve as a mentor to the likes of 2017 No. 3 overall pick Solomon Thomas, 2016 first-round pick DeForest Buckner and 2015 first-round pick Arik Armstead. Dumervil, a five-time Pro Bowler, has a prior relationship with new 49ers general manager John Lynch, who was his teammate early in his career with the Broncos.
Dumervil will be released by Baltimore, Steve Smith Sr. of NFL Network reports. Dumervil missed eight games in 2016 due to a foot injury, finishing the year with just 11 tackles, including 3.0 sacks, both career lows. He'll be an unrestricted free agent upon his release and will be entering his age-33 season in 2017.
Dumervil (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Titans, ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley reports. Dumervil's foot injury had kept him sidelined for the Ravens' previous four games, but after the veteran was a full participant in all three of the team's practices this week, he'll be cleared to take the field for the first time since Oct. 9. He may only see limited snaps in his return to action, however, as Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports that Terrell Suggs and Albert McClellan are expected to continue starting at outside linebacker, with Dumervil likely entering the contest primarily on passing downs.
Dumervil (foot) is questionable to play Sunday against the Bengals, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. Dumervil was a full participant in every practice this week, so his status for Sunday's game realistically doesn't appear in danger.
Dumervil (foot) participated fully at Wednesday's practice. Dumervil practiced in full twice last week and didn't suit up for the Ravens, so his full go Wednesday isn't a final indicator of his status for Sunday's game against the Bengals. If he sits, expect Za'Darius Smith and Albert McClellan to see increased roles.
