    49ers' Michael Wilhoite: Placed on IR

    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.

    49ers' Michael Wilhoite: Ruled out for Sunday's game against Cincy

    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.

    49ers' Michael Wilhoite: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    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.

    49ers' Michael Wilhoite: Not traveling with team

    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.

    49ers' Michael Wilhoite: No practice Wednesday

    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.

    49ers' Michael Wilhoite: Doesn't return Sunday

    Wilhoite was ruled out of Sunday's contest in Chicago due to an ankle injury, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports. Wilhoite entered the contest with an ankle concern, which forced him out of the game without a tackle on the ledger. He was replaced at inside linebacker by Gerald Hodges.

    49ers' Michael Wilhoite: Questionable to return in Week 13

    Wilhoite (ankle) is questionable to return Sunday against the Bears. While Wilhoite misses time, Gerald Hodges is likely to step in a left inside linebacker. In the meantine, Matt Forte and Jeremy Langford will likely find a little more room to run against a 49ers defense that struggles against the run even when they're at full strength.

    49ers' Michael Wilhoite: Leads 49ers with 13 tackles

    Wilhoite led all 49ers with 13 tackles (nine solo) in Thursday's loss to the Seahawks. This is Wilhoite's third-consecutive double-digit tackle performance. He is well on his way to surpassing his career-high of 87 tackles set last year when he was a full-time starter.

    49ers' Michael Wilhoite: Tackles 13 and picks off one

    Wilhoite had a monster game Sunday, tackling 13 Ravens (11 solo) while also intercepting a pass in the 25-20 win. Wilhoite has turned it on these past couple of weeks, collecting a total of 29 tackles in addition to Sunday's pick. He hasn't turned in huge tackle numbers despite starting in the past, so this outburst has come as a surprise. He should definitely be on IDP radars now, and he has a good chance at another high-tackle game against the run-heavy Seahawks on Thursday.

    49ers' Michael Wilhoite: Grabs career-high 16 tackles

    Wilhoite recorded a career-high 16 tackles (11 solo) in Sunday's loss to the Giants. Eli Manning completed 41 passes, which created many opportunities for the entire 49ers' defensive roster to rack up the tackles. Wilhoite isn't known for his ability to collect double-digit tackles, so Sunday's output should be considered an outlier as opposed to the what you can expect from him in the future.
