Nzeocha simply underwent a cleanup procedure to avoid further damage, and he should make a full recovery by the time training camp rolls around. He'll be competing for snaps at middle linebacker as he heads into his third year in the league, but Jaylon Smith (knee) and Anthony Hitchens will likely see most of the work at the position.
Nzeocha (achilles) is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals.
Nzeocha has been dealing with an achilles injury since the preseason, but will finally suit up in Week 5 against the Bengals. He will provide depth at middle linebacker behind starter Anthony Hitchens.
Nzeocha hasn't played this season and will likely be a game-time decision this weekend.
Nzeocha has been ruled out for the fourth straight game, but he'll look to make his season debut Week 5 against the Bengals.
Nzeocha hasn't been healthy enough to play in any contest this season. He was able to participate in each practice this week, though, but his status will be confirmed before kickoff nonetheless.
