  • 49ers' Kevin Givens: Activated for Week 8

    Givens (ankle) has been activated from IR ahead of Sunday's game with the Bears, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Givens was designated to return from IR earlier in the week and didn't have to wait long to get back into uniform. He's been out since Week 2 with the ankle injury and should immediately slide back into the rotation at defensive tackle.

  • 49ers' Kevin Givens: Designated to return from IR

    The 49ers designated Givens (ankle) to return from injured reserve Wednesday, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Givens sustained a serious high-ankle sprain in the 49ers' Week 2 win over the Eagles and has been on San Francisco's IR list since then. The 49ers now have a three-week window to activate the defensive tackle to their active roster or he'll stay on the team's injured reserve for the remainder of the year. Expect Kentavius Street to continue to play a key role for the 49ers' defensive line until Givens is activated.

    Givens suffered a high-ankle sprain Sunday and will be "out for a while," per coach Kyle Shanahan, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

    Givens will miss Sunday's game against the Packers and could be out beyond that considering high-ankle sprains normally take multiple weeks to recover from. Kentavius Street is expected to play a more prominent role along the interior of San Francisco's defensive line while Givens recovers.
