49ers' Michael Wilhoite: Will get reps with the first-team defense during OTAs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wilhoite will get an opportunity to line up with the first-team defense during OTAs, CSN Bay Area reports.

Gerald Hodges has been getting first-unit reps alongside NaVorro Bowman - as he did on Wednesday as well - but defensive coordinator Jim O'Neil said that Wilhoite will also get reps with the first-unit in an effort to create competition for the job during minicamp. Wilhoite was one of the 49ers' starting middle linebackers in 2015 before he went down with an ankle injury. He signed a one-year deal to stay with the club this offseason.

49ers' Michael Wilhoite: Signs one-year deal with 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Wilhoite (ankle) has signed a one-year deal with the 49ers, The Mercury News reports.

Wilhoite found himself in an opportunistic position in 2015 due to both Patrick Willis and Chris Borland announcing their retirement prior to the season, and proved to be a serviceable middle linebacker. The fifth-year player finished the 2015 season with 85 combined tackles in 12 games, but forced no fumbles and recorded only one interception, limiting his fantasy value. The 49ers did not go after any middle linebackers in the 2016 NFL Draft, yet Wilhoite will still receive competition from Gerald Hodges for a starting spot beside NaVorro Bowman. Hodges is much younger than Wilhoite and finished the 2015 campaign strong, racking up 32 combined tackles in the 49ers' last three contests.

49ers' Michael Wilhoite: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Michael Wilhoite (ankle) was placed on IR on Saturday.

With Wilhoite ruled out for the season finale, the San Francisco 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Michael 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Michael 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.
