Carradine (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Carradine was expected to miss 4-6 weeks after an MRI revealed no significant damage on his high ankle sprain, but the 49ers still opted to clear up a roster spot. The 28-year-old could be an IR-return candidate in eight weeks, but in the meantime rookie Solomon Thomas will likely see the most significant boost in playing time.
Carradine (ankle) is expected to be sidelined 4-6 weeks after an MRI revealed no significant damage, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. While not great news, the 49ers have to be exhaling some sighs of relief Saturday. There were rumblings of a possible season-ending injury prior to the MRI results, so 4-6 weeks seems like a much better outlook when putting things into perspective. In the meantime, rookie Solomon Thomas should be the primary beneficiary.
Carradine (ankle) suffered a high-ankle sprain versus the Rams on Thursday and could potentially be placed on injured reserve, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Head coach Kyle Shanahan didn't provide a recovery timetable, but did indicate that the 49ers had a decision to make regarding whether Carradine should be placed on IR. Solomon Thomas will likely replace the 28-year-old at right defensive end, while Elvis Dumervil could potentially see more snaps as well.
Carradine suffered an ankle injury and will miss the remainder of Thursday's contest against the Rams, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Carradine is just the latest in a laundry list of 49ers to be sidelined by an injury during Thursday's match. Look for Solomon Jones to finish off the game at defensive end, with updates on Carradine coming Friday.
Shortly after making San Francisco's 53-man roster, Carradine signed a one-year contract extension through the 2017 season, CSN Bay Area reports. The 2013 second-round pick looked like a bust in his first two seasons with the 49ers as a defensive lineman. The team opted to have him lose weight and move to outside linebacker this offseason and Carradine responded with his strongest camp, consequently making the final roster as a pass rush specialist. He should see the field on passing downs until Aaron Lynch returns from suspension Week 5.
