  • 49ers' Azeez Al-Shaair: Takes over as top LB

    Al-Shaair had eight tackles (seven solo) and a fumble recovery in Sunday's 34-26 win over Minnesota.

    Both Fred Warner (hamstring) and Dre Greenlaw (groin) left Sunday's game and neither returned, leaving Al-Shaair as the 49ers' top option at linebacker. The athletic coverage backer could see a big uptick in IDP value if both of his teammates miss any time (which seems like a realistic possibility). Al-Shaair's first chance to start at the Mike position will be against Seattle in Week 13.

  • 49ers' Azeez Al-Shaair: Nine tackles in loss

    Al-Shaair produced nine tackles (four solo) and one pass deflection during Sunday's loss to the Cardinals.

    Al-Shaair returned from a one game-absence to produce another solid outing against the Cardinals. The 24-year-old linebacker has recorded at least seven tackles in five of seven contests this season and has 52 total tackles. His tackle production will likely continue to offer fantasy managers a high-floor option in IDP leagues.

  • 49ers' Azeez Al-Shaair: Should play Sunday

    Al-Shaair (concussion) no longer carries an injury designation and should play Sunday against the Cardinals.

    Al-Shaair was able to practice in full all week after missing the 49ers' Week 8 win over Chicago. His return will be welcomed, as he has logged more than 90 percent of the snaps every week he's played since the season opener. Al-Shaair should slide back into his starting role as the 49ers' strong-side linebacker.

  • 49ers' Azeez Al-Shaair: Records full practice

    Al-Shaair (concussion) was able to log a full practice for the 49ers on Wednesday.

    Al-Shaair was forced to miss the 49ers' win over Chicago, as he was still in the league's concussion protocols. While it's uncertain if the linebacker has cleared concussion protocols, there is optimism Al-Shaair will be able to return against the Cardinals with Wednesday's full practice effort. Expect Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles to see an increased role Sunday if Al-Shaair can't suit up.

  • 49ers' Azeez Al-Shaair: Downgraded to out

    Al-Shaair (concussion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against Chicago, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

    Al-Shaair is set to miss his first game of the season. As such, Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles looks likely to see extra snaps Sunday.

  • 49ers' Azeez Al-Shaair: Considered doubtful

    The 49ers have deemed Al-Shaair (concussion) as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bears, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

    Al-Shaair still has a chance to clear concussion protocol, but that seems to be a stretch at this point. Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles would likely be in line to fill in at strong-side linebacker should Al-Shaair ultimately get ruled out.

  • 49ers' Azeez Al-Shaair: Misses practice Wednesday

    Al-Shaair (concussion) was unable to participate in the 49ers' practice Wednesday.

    Al-Shaair sustained a concussion in the 49ers' Week 7 loss to the Colts. The linebacker is still in the concussion protocols ahead of San Francisco's Week 8 matchup with the Bears. Expect Tyrell Adams or Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles to see extended snaps Sunday if Al-Shaair is unable to suit up.

  • 49ers' Azeez Al-Shaair: In concussion protocol

    Al-Shaair is in concussion protocol following Sunday's 30-18 loss to the Colts, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

    Al-Shaair suffered a concussion during Sunday night's matchup, and now he must clear the concussion protocol ahead of a Week 8 tilt against the Bears. The linebacker's progress will be worth monitoring as the team practices this week.

  • 49ers' Azeez Al-Shaair: Another 10-tackle day

    Al-Shaair notched 10 tackles (six solo) during Sunday's 28-21 loss to the Seahawks.

    Al-Shaair is still looking to pick up his first sack of the season, but his tackling floor is enough to provide IDP utility. The starting linebacker will have another divisional matchup on deck Week 5, in the form of a road game against the Cardinals.

  • 49ers' Azeez Al-Shaair: Double-digit tackles

    Al-Shaair recorded 10 tackles in Sunday's Week 3 loss to the Packers.

    Al-Shaair has been a mainstay among the 49ers' linebacker corps through three games this season. He has played on 95 and 100 percent of the defensive plays respectively in the team's last two games and now has 22 tackles across three contests on the campaign. Al-Shaair has yet to record a sack, though he did break up two passes in Week 1 against Detroit.

  • 49ers' Azeez Al-Shaair: Shakes off injury

    Al-Shaair (knee) wasn't listed on Wednesday's injury report.

    Al-Shaair has shaken off the knee sprain he sustained early in training camp. The 24-year-old should handle a consistent role in the 49ers' defense as the team's starting strong-side linebacker. Through 16 games (five starts) in 2020, he registered 35 tackles (22 solo), two pass breakups and an interception.

  • 49ers' Azeez Al-Shaair: Managing knee sprain

    Coach Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday that Al-Shaair suffered "some type of knee sprain" and is expected to be sidelined a few weeks, Nick Wagoner of reports.

    Al-Shaair sustained the injury at Monday's practice, and it appears he's avoided a serious injury. He'll likely miss the preseason opening, but there's a chance he's available for the second preseason contest Aug. 22 versus the Chargers if he avoids any setbacks.

  • 49ers' Azeez Al-Shaair: Injures knee at practice

    Al-Shaair suffered an apparent knee injury at Monday's practice, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Coach Kyle Shanahan said that team doctors are optimistic about Al-Shaair's health, which could bode well for his timetable to return. If he's able to get healthy without missing much time, Al-Shaair may be able to secure a starting role alongside Dre Greenlaw and Fred Warner.

  • 49ers' Azeez Al-Shaair: Posts 35 tackles as backup

    Al-Shaair finished the 2020 season with 35 tackles (22 solo), an interception and a forced fumble across 16 games.

    Al-Shaair spent the majority of the year as a backup and special-teams contributor, only topping 58 percent of defensive snaps once (Week 17). The third-year pro is a well-rounded linebacker who could reach IDP relevance if given an opportunity to start. That said, Al-Shaair is a restricted free agent who is well-liked by the organization, so returning as a backup to Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw is a strong possibility for him in 2021.

  • 49ers' Azeez Al-Shaair: Will face Rams

    Al-Shaair is active for Sunday's matchup against the Rams.

    Al-Shaair's activation bolsters San Franciso's linebacking corps, and his services may be needed on the defensive side with Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles (hamstring) being ruled out at the weakside linebacker spot. Joe Walker is poised to step into the starting role at that position, but Al-Shaair could be in line for increased playing time. Over 10 appearances this season, Al-Shaair has earned three starts while fielding 30-plus defensive snaps on three different occasions.

  • 49ers' Azeez Al-Shaair: Secured backup role

    Al-Shaair recorded 18 tackles (11 solo) over 15 games during the 2019 regular season.

    Al-Shaair was picked up by San Francisco after a serious knee injury caused him to go undrafted out of Florida Atlantic. The 22-year-old cracked the 53-man roster out of camp, and showed enough to the coaching staff to stick around for the entire campaign. Al-Shaair is under contract for two more years, so he will compete for a backup role behind projected starters Kwon Alexander, Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw.
