    Seahawks' Ahkello Witherspoon: Appears to lose starting role

    Ahkello Witherspoon isn't expected to be a starter in the season opener against the Colts, Gregg Bell of The Tacoma News Tribune reports.Tre Flowers is on track to start at right cornerback while D.J. Reed secured the job at left cornerback. Witherspoon was expected to win the starting job after signing for $4 million guaranteed in March, but Flowers' strong training camp pushed Witherspoon out of a job. However, Flowers lost that job twice in 2020, so Witherspoon could eventually get another chance.

    Seahawks' Ahkello Witherspoon: Slated for No. 1 role

    Ahkello Witherspoon (knee) is expected to be the Seattle Seahawks' No. 1 cornerback this season, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.Witherspoon never quite got his footing in San Francisco due to a crowded secondary and injuries. He's healthy at training camp and is ready to compete for the top job. The Seahawks desperately need him to step into the No. 1 role after Shaquill Griffin left for Jacksonville. So far in camp, the 26-year-old has been sticky in coverage, using his athleticism -- he's 6-foot-3 with 33-inch arms and a 40-inch vertical -- to shut down the team's top receivers. D.J. Reed is expected to secure the other top cornerback role.

    Seahawks' Ahkello Witherspoon: Rehabbing knee injury

    Ahkello Witherspoon (knee) is present at OTAs, but rehabbing an injury, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.Witherspoon, who the Seattle Seahawks brought in during free agency, is expected to handle a starting role at cornerback, so his health will need to be monitored during OTAs. Of course, there's not yet any reason to believe his injury is more than minor. He did miss five games with the 49ers last season, but that was due to a hamstring issue.

    Ahkello Witherspoon (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.The 25-year-old missed the past two games with the hamstring injury and was questionable for Week 5, but he's good to go versus Miami.

    49ers' Ahkello Witherspoon: Officially listed as questionable

    Ahkello Witherspoon (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.Witherspoon has missed two straight games due to a lingering hamstring injury, but it looks like he has a fair shot to retake the field versus Miami. Emmanuel Moseley (concussion), Richard Sherman (calf), K'Waun Williams (knee) and Dontae Johnson (groin) are all ruled out for Week 5, so getting Witherspoon back would provide a much-needed boost for San Francisco's secondary.

    49ers' Ahkello Witherspoon: Still limited at practice

    Ahkello Witherspoon (hamstring) was held to limited practice participation Thursday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.Witherspoon continues to turn in practice participation despite missing game action. The 25-year-old has missed the last two games with the hamstring issue, and he's in jeopardy of missing more action. Fellow starting corner Emmanuel Moseley has missed the past few games with a concussion, so the cornerback depth chart is extremely thin for the San Francisco 49ers at the moment.

    49ers' Ahkello Witherspoon: Ruled out of Week 4

    Ahkello Witherspoon (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Eagles, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.Witherspoon's injury appeared to get worse as the week progressed as he logged an FP/LP/DNP practice schedule en route to being ruled out completely. Emmanuel Moseley (concussion) also won't play along with Richard Sherman, who is still on IR with a hamstring injury. K'Waun Williams (hip) is next in line, but he's considered questionable as well. Dontae Johnson, Jason Verrett and, to a lesser extent, Ken Webster all figure to have a role in Sunday's game as a result.

    49ers' Ahkello Witherspoon: Limited for practice Thursday

    Ahkello Witherspoon (hamstring) was held to limited practice participation Thursday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.The fourth-year pro was unable to suit up Week 3 against the Giants, but the depleted San Francisco secondary was still capable of containing Daniel Jones to just 179 yards passing with no touchdowns and one interception. It may be more urgent to get Witherspoon back in the lineup for an upcoming matchup against Philadelphia, though Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has struggled in his own right, composing a 3:6 TD:INT in the early going. Witherspoon was a late addition to the injury report last week before being deemed inactive, but a limited session Thursday provides hope he will be able to suit up against the Eagles.
