Mayo (sports hernia) signed a two-year contract with the 49ers on Thursday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Mayo played all 16 games as a reserve linebacker with the Panthers last season, recording 14 tackles and one defended pass. The 25-year-old underwent sports hernia surgery earlier this offseason and is expected to make a full recovery prior to training camp.
Mayo underwent sports hernia surgery after the season and is expected to make a full recovery ahead of training camp, Joe Person of The Athletic reports. Mayo never missed a game in 2018, but his name popped up on the injury report prior to Week 10 with an unspecified groin issue. Sports hernia surgeries typically don't carry timetables of more than two months, so Mayo may even be ready for OTAs. He'll become an unrestricted free agent in March, but both he and the Panthers will likely have some interest in a reunion.
Mayo (groin) is active for Thursday's matchup against the Steelers, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Charlotte Observer reports. Mayo's availability is something of a surprise, given that the depth linebacker was unable to participate during all three of Carolina's practice sessions this week. The fourth-year pro has played only one defensive snap since Week 6, so expect Mayo to see most of his work on special teams.
Mayo (illness) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Saints. Mayo, who was a late addition to the Panthers' injury report during wild-card weekend, will be able to play through the illness that had been bothersome. The outside linebacker has logged just two total tackles throughout the team's last three games.
Mayo is a late addition to the Panthers' injury report due to an illness, Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reports. The Panthers have a bit of a bug going around in the locker room, and Mayo was not the only player under the weather. It is unclear how serious of an issue he is dealing with, but his status will likely depend on how he is feeling closer to game time. If he ultimately sits out, lookfor Andrew Gachkar to see increased reps providing depth at linebacker.
