Dorsey (knee) passed his conditioning test Saturday, CSN Bay Area reports.
Dorsey tore his ACL last season and has been making good progress in his recovery this offseason. He will be slowly worked back into the mix during training camp. Dorsey will have competition for a role at defensive end with DeForest Buckner and Arik Armstead on the depth chart, but he could find playing time at the nose tackle position with Ian Williams already ruled out for the season.
GM Trent Baalke claims
Despite this endorsement of health, Dorsey is almost certainly slated for the PUP list to start training camp. However, he won't necessarily begin the season there. Dorsey suffered the torn ACL last season against the Seahawks on Nov. 22, and although occurring late in the season, he could certainly be "ready to roll" come opening day. Comparatively, DT Geno Atkins suffered an ACL tear in Week 9 of the 2013 season, and was good to go for Week 1 of 2014.
Glenn Dorsey suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks, according to NFL Network's Rand Getlin.
Assuming the diagnosis is confirmed by the team, Dorsey would presumably be headed to IR, with his looming absence representing a big blow to the San Francisco 49ers ' defensive line.
