    08/21/16TEEric EbronAnkleQUESTIONABLEEbron (ankle) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

    Ebron practiced Tuesday for the first time since early August, but he was then held out both Wednesday and Thursday. It's unclear if he suffered a setback, but if so, his Week 1 status may now be in danger. The 23-year-old tight end hasn't played in any preseason games and probably won't be ready for Thursday's exhibition finale against the Bills.

    08/17/16TEAndrew QuarlessSuspensionSUSPENDQuarless (suspension) signed a deal with the Lions on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    With tight ends Eric Ebron and Brandon Pettigrew both recovering from injuries, the Lions are facing serious depth issues at tight end for this coming season. And while Quarless will still be suspended for the first two games of the regular season, he had a solid stint with the Packers and would be a formidable option for the team should neither Ebron nor Pettigrew be ready by Week 3. He is eligible to start practicing with the team immediately.

    08/16/16LBDeAndre LevyUndisclosedQUESTIONABLELevy (undisclosed) was removed from the Non-Football Injury list on Tuesday morning, ESPN.com reports.

    While technically now available to practice, Levy won't necessarily do so Tuesday. He did suggest that he hopes to play in at least one preseason game, but the real goal will be to have him ready for Week 1. Even after missing all of last season with a hip injury and the first three weeks of training camp with an undisclosed issue, Levy possesses an IDP ceiling that's among the best in the league. Few linebackers possess a similar combination of run-stopping and coverage skills.

    (Updated 08/16/2016)
    08/16/16TEMatthew MulliganUndisclosedPROBABLEMulligan (undisclosed) did not practice Tuesday, MLive.com's Kyle Meinke reports.

    The nature of his injury is unknown, but he is not expected to be dealing with anything long-term. Mulligan had been serving as Detroit's primary blocking tight end while Brandon Pettigrew (knee) resided on the PUP list to begin training camp, and was tabbed as the team's No. 2 tight end behind Eric Ebron (leg) on the first unofficial depth chart of the preseason. Now, with Ebron currently sidelined as well, the Lions will be without their top-three overall tight ends for foreseeable future.

    (Updated 08/16/2016)
    07/30/16RBGeorge WinnFootQUESTIONABLEWinn -- who had been an exclusive rights free agent -- has signed his contract tender with the Lions, the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick continue to slot in as as the Lions' top two running backs, while Winn (who recorded just four carries for one yard in seven 2015 appearances for Detroit) and Zach Zenner will jostle for depth slotting in the team's backfield along with free agent acquisition Stevan Ridley.

    (Updated 04/10/2016)
    07/29/16TEOrson CharlesSuspensionSUSPENDThe NFL suspended Saints tight end Orson Charles for the first game of the season, reports the NFL Network. The suspension was for violating the league's Personal Conduct Policy.
    07/28/16RBAmeer AbdullahShoulderPROBABLEAbdullah (shoulder) gained 16 yards on four carries and failed to haul in his lone target in Saturday's preseason game against the Ravens.

    As expected, Abdullah started but played limited snaps in his first game action since last season, getting all of his touches during the first quarter. He did appear to have a 15-yard touchdown scamper on the first play of the second quarter, but it was called back due to a teammate's holding penalty. In addition to starting on offense, Abdullah may get some opportunities in the return game, though his role as the lead back could limit his special teams contributions to crucial situations. He resumed contact work in practice last week, and there's been no suggestion of any setback with his shoulder.

    05/26/16DLCaraun ReidAnkleDOUBTFULLions defensive tackle Caraun Reid (ankle) practiced for the first time since Aug. 20, Josh Katzenstein of The Detroit News reports.
    04/13/16DBGlover QuinAnklePROBABLEQuin (ankle) practiced in near-full capacity during the first day of minicamp, the Lions' official site reports.

    Quin had been taking it easy since undergoing offseason ankle surgery, but participated in near-full capacity during Tuesday's session. For reference, Quin never participated in any team drills during OTAs. However, now in minicamp, he lined up as the starting free safety during team drills, admittedly only for a portion of the snaps, though. It appears Quin has been setback-free in his recovery, and will continue to amp up his workload in practice as the offseason wears on.

    DatePosPlayerInjuryNFL StatusFantasy News
    08/29/16RBShaun DraughnLegPROBABLEDraughn (ribs/back) wore a blue jersey at Sunday's practice to signal that he's exempt from being hit, The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Draughn hasn't played in either of the 49ers' past two preseason games due to a ribs injury he suffered during a practice scrimmage with the Broncos. While that condition requires the protection associated with a blue practice jersey, starting running back Carlos Hyde's concussion suffered Friday against Green Bay makes protecting Draughn's health even more important. At the moment, he projects as the Niners' No. 2 running back, so if Hyde is unavailable, he represents the team's next option at the position, where the alternatives don't appear too attractive. It's also worth noting that Draughn was involved with returning punts during Sunday's session.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/29/16WRDeAndre SmelterHamstringPROBABLESmelter (hamstring) was seen in full pads at Monday's practice, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.

    Smelter -- who has missed all three preseason games with a hamstring injury -- returned to practice and could make an appearance in the 49ers' final preseason game against the Chargers on Thursday. The 2015 fourth-round pick was recovering from a torn ACL and had a great opportunity to carve out a significant role during training camp, but a hamstring injury derailed that opportunity. It isn't inconceivable for Smelter to have a strong showing in Thursday's preseason finale and rocket up the depth chart given how depleted the 49ers' receiving corps is. A more likely scenario would be Smelter making the team as a backup and earning playing time later in the season as he gets his feet wet with his first NFL action.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/27/16LBNaVorro BowmanRestPROBABLEBowman is in street clothes on the sideline for Friday's matchup with the Packers, Nick Wagoner of ESPN reports.

    Bowman was not on the inactive list for this contest, but it does not appear as though he will participate. There has been no injury reported, so the team is likely resting their veteran linebacker in order to ensure his health heading into Week 1.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/27/16DLQuinton DialKneeQUESTIONABLEDial injured his knee during Friday's preseason loss to the Packers, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

    The 49ers are awaiting word on an MRI of Dial's knee, after which a timetable for a return can be charted. In 15 games last season, the defensive tackle notched 59 tackles (32 solo) and 2.5 sacks.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/27/16WRBruce EllingtonHamstringQUESTIONABLEEllington (ankle) won't play in Saturday's preseason game at Denver, the 49ers' official site reports.

    With an ankle sprain in tow, Ellington will be an observer rather than participant in San Francisco's second exhibition outing. His absence should give the likes of Jerome Simpson and DeAndrew White additional targets to work with Saturday.

    (Updated 08/20/2016)
    08/27/16RBCarlos HydeConcussionQUESTIONABLEHyde suffered a concussion in the first half of Saturday's preseason loss to Green Bay, ESPN reports.

    Hyde had four carries for 30 yards, including a 27-yard run, before departing. Hyde looks fully healthy after left foot surgery that he underwent prior to the end of the 2015 season. However, the concussion could put his status for the start of the regular season in question.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/26/16DLTony Jerod-EddieChestPROBABLEJerod-Eddie exited Saturday's preseason game with an apparent chest injury, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Jerod-Eddie went down in the first quarter and did not return to the game. With both Arik Armstead (shoulder) and DeForest Buckner (leg) sitting out, he was getting reps with the 49ers' top defensive unit. Jerod-Eddie is currently competing for a backup defensive end job.

    (Updated 08/21/2016)
    08/23/16WRBryce TreggsKneeQUESTIONABLETreggs (knee) is inactive for Friday's matchup with the Packers.

    Treggs is currently considered week-to-week due to a sprained MCL, thus rendering this inactive unsurprising. He is currently competing to make the team's final roster.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    08/21/16LBNick BelloreKneeQUESTIONABLEBellore (knee) was diagnosed with a knee sprain Monday, Matt Maiocco of csnbayarea.com reports.

    On the bright side, Bellore's injury does not appear serious enough to require surgery. On the other hand, the 49ers have no timetable for his return as of right now. Bellore currently presides as one of San Francisco's top reserve linebackers.

    (Updated 08/22/2016)
    08/21/16DLDeForest BucknerUndisclosedPROBABLEBuckner was held out of the 49ers second preseason game, Saturday against the Broncos, due to a soft tissue issue on his lower body, Nick Wagoner of ESPN NFL Nation reports.

    Buckner's absence was announced late on Saturday, and came as a surprise as he hadn't missed practice with the issue. The team didn't go beyond saying that the injury was tissue in his lower body, making it hard to gauge the severity of the injury and set a timetable for the rookie defensive end. It's unclear at this time if he'll be able to practice right away or if he'll be out for a longer stretch. Look for Demetrius Cherry to see some extra reps as long as Buckner is out.

    (Updated 08/21/2016)
    08/11/16DLArik ArmsteadShoulderPROBABLEArmstead (shoulder) returned to practice this week after missing the team's first two preseason games, Matt Maiocco reports.

    After a somewhat disappointing rookie campaign one year ago, the 49ers remain confident that Armstead is headed in the right direction. The 21-year-old has shown signs of growth in both the maturity and production departments, and projects to help anchor San Francisco's defensive line in 2016. His return to the practice field Wednesday suggests that he will be ready to lead the charge in Week 1.

    (Updated 08/24/2016)
    07/30/16DLIan WilliamsNot Injury RelatedOUTWilliams was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    This move was made to make room on the roster for offensive lineman Anthony Davis who was reinstated by the league from retirement Saturday. It remains to be seen when Williams will play again.

    (Updated 07/30/2016)
    07/29/16LBAaron LynchSuspensionSUSPENDLynch has been suspended for the first four games of the regular season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

    Lynch slid to the fifth round of the 2014 Draft amid character concerns, but developed into of the league's best young outside linebackers by totaling 12.5 sacks over his first two seasons. Nonetheless, Lynch has now incurred his first NFL off-field slip-up, and will miss the first quarter of the regular season as a consequence. With Lynch suspended until San Francisco's Week 5 game against the Cardinals, Eli Harold and Corey Lemonier are candidates to start opposite Ahmad Brooks in the meantime.

    (Updated 07/15/2016)
    05/16/16DBWill RedmondKneeQUESTIONABLEThe 49ers selected Redmond (knee) in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 68th overall.

    Redmond likely would have been a second-round pick and could have even pushed for the first round if he hadn't torn his ACL during the 2015 season. This therefore looks like a potential bargain for a 49ers team that lacks proven options at corner.

    (Updated 04/29/2016)
    02/17/16DLGlenn DorseyKneeQUESTIONABLEDorsey (knee) passed his conditioning test Saturday, CSN Bay Area reports.

    Dorsey tore his ACL last season and has been making good progress in his recovery this offseason. He will be slowly worked back into the mix during training camp. Dorsey will have competition for a role at defensive end with DeForest Buckner and Arik Armstead on the depth chart, but he could find playing time at the nose tackle position with Ian Williams already ruled out for the season.
