San Fransisco is monitoring the charges against Givens on Friday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Givens allegedly injured a man in a violent confrontation in February. While the details regarding the alleged assault are unclear at the time, the 49ers are currently gathering information. The charges against the defensive tackle include a misdemeanor second-degree assault.
Givens (personal) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Givens played in 13 games this season on a depleted defensive line. He stacked up 19 tackles, a sack, a pass breakup and a fumble recovery. Givens has one year remaining on his contract.
The NFL lifted Givens' roster exemption Thursday. Givens now returns to the fold after missing the 49ers' Week 14 loss to Washington while attending to a personal matter. The Penn State product earned his first career NFL start Week 12 against the Rams, collecting a fumble recovery in that contest. Givens may be right back in the lineup Sunday against Dallas, as starting defensive tackle D.J. Jones continues to deal with an ankle injury.
Givens (personal) was granted a roster exemption Saturday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Givens won't play in Sunday's game against Washington due to a personal matter, and he won't count against the 53-man roster, either. With D.J. Jones (ankle) doubtful, Javon Kinlaw and Kentavius Street are poised to start at defensive tackle in Week 14.
Givens (personal) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Football Team, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports. Givens will sit out for the first time this season. He has averaged 30.7 defensive snaps per game. Starting defensive tackle D.J. Jones (ankle) is considered doubtful, meaning Kentavius Street and Javon Kinlaw should handle heightened workloads Sunday.
