Lemonier (personal) is expected to play Sunday against Washington, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Lemonier was recently downgraded to "doubtful" because of personal reasons, but he has joined the team and is expected to suit up for the afternoon matchup, where he'll provide depth at outside linebacker.
It's unclear what Lemonier is dealing with at this point in time, but he appears unlikely to suit up. Cam Johnson was promoted from the practice squad in order to provide depth at linebacker for at least Week 4.
Head coach Hue Jackson said
With Nate Orchard (ankle) out for an extended period of time, Lemonier is due for an uptick in playing time. The 24-year-old linebacker registered three tackles, one sack and a forced fumble while playing only 16 snaps during Sunday's matchup against Miami. It'll be interesting to see how productive he is with an increased workload.
Lemonier -- a former third-round draft pick -- was cut by the 49ers on Saturday.
Lemonier was never able to carve out a significant role in San Francisco despite being drafted in the third round and having plenty of opportunities to move up the depth chart. This preseason is possibly the greatest example of his shortcomings, getting cut from the team with a vacant starting outside linebacker spot left by Aaron Lynch (suspension).
