01/26/17DLArik ArmsteadShoulderQUESTIONABLEArmstead (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

The move comes as a way to free up a roster spot for defensive tackle Chris Jones. Armstead finishes his season with 21 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and one forced fumble in eight games, including four starts. Rookie DeForest Buckner could now see an expanded role with Armstead out the remainder of the season.

01/26/17LBRay-Ray ArmstrongPectoralQUESTIONABLEArmstrong collected four tackles (three solo) and an interception in Monday's win over the Rams.

Armstrong co-started at middle linebacker with Gerald Hodges with the latter receiving more snaps on early downs (41 for Armstrong and 19 for Hodges). The interception bolstered what would have been a pedestrian tackle total. If the two linebackers continue to split snaps, then neither will see enough opportunities to rack up enough tackles next to NaVorro Bowman to become relevant in IDP leagues.

01/26/17TEBlake BellShoulderQUESTIONABLEBell (shoulder) was placed on IR Tuesday, Cam Inman of Mercury News reports.

This announcement comes as no surprise after the 49ers announced that Bell was not going to play for the remainder of the season. Je'Rom Hamm and Garrett Celek are left as the only tight ends on San Francisco's active roster.

01/26/17LBNick BelloreElbowQUESTIONABLEBellore (elbow) finished the year with 83 tackles, a sack, a pick and a forced fumble in 14 games prior to being placed on season-ending injured reserve.

Bellore spent the majority of his six-year career as a special teams ace, but injuries created an opportunity for him to start. He ran with the opportunity, posting tackle totals that put him on the IDP map. The 27-year-old is set to hit free agency coming off of career-high marks, but his lack of coverage skills will likely land him back in a special team's role.

01/26/17LBNaVorro BowmanAchillesQUESTIONABLEBowman (Achilles) is making good progress through his rehab but still doesn't have a timetable set for his return to full activity, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.

Bowman is currently working his way back from a torn left Achilles suffered in Week 4 against the Cowboys. That setback came after he suffered a horrible left knee injury during the 2014 NFL Championship, giving Bowman perspective for his rehab. According to the 28-year-old, his latest injury hurdle is far easier to approach than his knee rehab was, and although he's yet to receive a timetable, Bowman is confident he'll be back performing at a high level once healthy.

01/26/17DBChris DavisKneeQUESTIONABLEDavis (knee) was moved to injured reserve on Monday.

Davis was carted off the field during the Niners' game against the Cardinals on Thursday and did not return. The specifics of his injury are unclear, however. JaCorey Shepherd was signed to take his place on the active roster.

01/26/17WRBruce EllingtonHamstringQUESTIONABLEEllington (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Expected to serve as San Francisco's No. 2 or 3 wideout, Ellington sprained an ankle a couple weeks ago, then injured his hamstring in Friday's preseason game against the Packers. He hasn't been ruled out for the year, making him a prime candidate to return from IR mid-season. Following offseason rule changes, each team can take one player off IR at any point in the season after Week 6. Torrey Smith and Quinton Patton figure to start at wide receiver, with Jeremy Kerley, DeAndrew White and others competing to fill out the depth chart.

01/26/17RBCarlos HydeKnee - MCLQUESTIONABLEThe 49ers placed Hyde (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday.

The 49ers moved on from long-time starting running back Frank Gore after the 2014 season with the hope they had another iron man in house. Instead, Hyde has been anything but a model of health, suiting up in 20 of a possible 32 games. In the middle of the current campaign, he was deemed inactive two times due to a right shoulder injury. Now, a sprained MCL is the impetus for his third DNP. While Hyde will wrap up the year with career highs across the board -- 217 carries for 988 yards and six touchdowns, 27 receptions (on 33 targets) for 163 yards and three more scores -- head coach Chip Kelly is expected to turn to Shaun Draughn to power the ground attack in the season finale.

01/26/17QBThad LewisKneeQUESTIONABLELewis suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's preseason opener and will now miss the remainder of this season,'s Ian Rapoport reports.

Lewis was forced out during the third quarter of Sunday's game, when he was the second signal-caller used in wake of Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) being sidelined. However, now that his season has already come to a close, rookie Jeff Driskel should see more reps behind Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert in practice.

01/26/17TEVance McDonaldShoulderQUESTIONABLEMcDonald was placed on injured reserve Monday due to a broken scapula, Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group reports.

The turn in fortunes was sudden for McDonald. Last Friday, the 49ers signed the tight end to a five-year, $35 million extension. Then, in his first appearance after putting pen to paper, he lasted 17 snaps Sunday versus the Jets before sustaining the season-ending injury. With three games remaining on the 2016 slate, head coach Chip Kelly is left with the tight end duo of Garrett Celek and Blake Bell.

01/26/17WRQuinton PattonFootQUESTIONABLEPatton underwent surgery on a broken foot Tuesday, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.

The nature of Patton's season-ending foot injury is now known, but a recovery timetable has yet to be established. The upcoming unrestricted free agent finished his fourth NFL season with career highs in receptions (37), targets (63), and yards (408), but the second touchdown of his career still awaits.

01/26/17DBWill RedmondKneeQUESTIONABLERedmond (knee) will not be activated from injured reserve as his 21-day window expired on Tuesday, Nick Wagoner of reports.

Redmond was elected to return from IR as he was working his way back from a torn ACL he suffered in 2015. However, the team decided to not activate the cornerback to the 53-man roster, meaning he will remain on the IR for the remainder of the season. The rookie will shift his focus to returning to the field completely healthy next year as Jimmie Ward and Tramaine Brock will continue to to start at cornerback this season.

01/26/17DBEric ReidBicepsQUESTIONABLEReid (biceps) expects to be fully ready for the 49ers' offseason program, ESPN reports.

Reid met with a team doctor Wednesday to discuss the status of his torn biceps and was told if there were a game this week, he'd be able to practice. In fact, his only current limitation is he can't do any weightlifting with the palm of his hand facing down. Considering he sustained this injury in late November, Reid appears to have had a speedy recovery and a full return for the start of offseason workouts in April certainly seems realistic.

01/26/17WREric RogersKneeQUESTIONABLEThe Cowboys announced Tuesday they released wide receiver Anthony Amos, tight end Colin Cochart, guard Dennis Godfrey, wide receiver Jared Green, linebacker Deon Lacey, kicker Brett Maher, wide receiver Eric Rogers, quarterback Nick Stephens and cornerback Brandon Underwood.
01/26/17LBShayne SkovKneeQUESTIONABLESkov (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

Skov suffered a knee injury Sunday against the Dolphins, effectively ending his season. The 26-year-old played primarily on special teams this season, registering ten tackles on the year.

01/26/17DBJimmie WardCollarboneQUESTIONABLEWard was placed on injured reserve Tuesday with a broken collarbone, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.

The only new point of emphasis here is that Ward is dealing with a broken collarbone, whereas his previous injury designation given by the team was simply a shoulder issue. He'll be done the for the season nonetheless, with Keith Reaser and JaCorey Shepherd likely benefiting from added playing time in the final two weeks of the season.

01/02/17TEJe'Ron HammLegQUESTIONABLEHamm injured his left leg in pregame warmups prior to Sunday's matchup with the Seahawks, Cam Inman of The Mercury News reports.

The extent of Hamm's injury wasn't specified. Barring anything serious, he should be ready to play in time for the start of the 2017 campaign.

01/02/17DBRashard RobinsonAnkleQUESTIONABLERobinson (ankle) is slated to be fully recovered by the start of the 49ers' offseason program in April, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Robinson was carted off the field during the team's Jan. 1 loss to the Seahawks, but he luckily avoided any serious damage despite leaving the facility on crutches. He's projected to compete for a starting spot at cornerback in 2017 after a rookie campaign in which he racked up 28 tackles, eight passes defensed, and one interception in 14 games.
