Acker's injury was described as "slight" issue, so he may be able to return later in the week. If the team elects to proceed cautiously with Acker, his next chance to return would come at the start of training camp when he'll be in a battle for a depth spot at cornerback.
Not assured of a roster spot, Acker was presumably traded for a conditional late-round pick. The 2014 sixth-round selection did make 13 starts for the injury-plagued 49ers last season, but he profiles as a No. 4 or 5 cornerback for most organizations.
Acker was listed behind Dontae Johnson (who he beat for a starting role last year) and rookie Rashard Robinson. This comes as a bit of a surprise after he put up respectable numbers in 2015 (65 tackles and three picks). This was the first depth chart released, so things can definitely change between now and the start of the regular season, but for now it appears that Acker has fallen out of favor with defensive coordinator Jim O'Neil.
