Love appears to have cleared concussion protocol, ESPN's David Newton reports.
Love was seen walking to practice Monday with his helmet in hand, indicating he's ready to return from last week's hit to the head. Having him available gives the Panthers another big body along their defensive front, where Kawann Short, Star Lotulelei and Vernon Butler lead the interior line options.
Johnson began training camp on the active/non-football injury list with an Achilles injury.
Johnson suffered the injury last season when he was with the Patriots but did not undergo surgery until this offseason. The cornerback can be removed from the list at any point and rejoin the team on the field. There will be plenty of reps for young Panthers' defensive backs to begin camp with Johnson and fellow corner Bene Benwikere (ankle) both on the sidelines.
The 49ers have signed Dial to a three-year extension, The Sacramento Bee reports.
Dial - who would have been a free agent after the 2016 season - set career-highs in tackles (59 combined) and sacks (2.5) this past year. He showed enough improvement for the 49ers' front office to extend his contract through the 2019 season. A former fifth-round draft pick in 2013, Dial has outworked higher draft picks from that class - such as Tank Carradine and Corey Lemonier - to earn a starting spot next year.
Ellington (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.
Hyde 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.
Lewis suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's preseason opener and will now miss the remainder of this season, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.
Lewis was forced out during the third quarter of Sunday's game, when he was the second signal-caller used in wake of Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) being sidelined. However, now that his season has already come to a close, rookie Jeff Driskel should see more reps behind Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert in practice.
