  • 49ers' Samson Ebukam: Set to play Sunday

    Ebukam (quadriceps) does not carry an injury status ahead of Sunday's game against the Saints, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports. Ebukam is set to return after missing San Francisco's last two games with a quadriceps injury. The 27-year-old played 302 defensive snaps over the first eight weeks of the season, recording 29 tackles and 3.5 sacks over that span. Ebukam should reprise a prominent pass-rushing role opposite star defensive end Nick Bosa in Week 12.

  • 49ers' Samson Ebukam: No injury designation for Week 8

    Ebukam doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's matchup against the Rams, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Ebukam was unable to practice Wednesday due to an Achilles injury he picked up during the team's Week 7 loss to the Chiefs, but he was able to log a limited session Thursday and was upgraded to a full participant Friday. Across seven appearances, the sixth-year defensive end has totaled 26 tackles, 3.5 sacks and one forced fumble across 261 defensive snaps.

  • 49ers' Samson Ebukam: Misses practice

    Ebukam (Achilles) did not practice Wednesday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Ebukam played through his injury in Sunday's game against Atlanta and had been practicing in a limited capacity. It's clear he needs to recover more before suiting up and taking the field for Sunday's game, but he will have two more practice opportunities prior to it.

  • 49ers' Samson Ebukam: Back at practice Thursday

    Ebukam (Achilles) was listed as a limited participant on the 49ers' injury report Thursday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Ebukam sat out practice Wednesday with an Achilles injury that first arose following San Francisco's Week 5 win over Carolina. The defensive end was also limited in practice last Thursday and Friday before suiting up against the Falcons on Sunday, so he could be following a similar practice schedule in Week 7. Nevertheless, it will be worth monitoring Ebukam's status on the 49ers' final injury report ahead of this Sunday's contest against Kansas City.

  • 49ers' Samson Ebukam: Returns in limited fashion

    Ebukam (Achilles) was a limited participant during the 49ers' practice Thursday, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports. Ebukam suited up in Week 5 after being listed as questionable due to a hamstring injury, though he did not practice Wednesday due to a new Achilles issue. While the exact nature and severity of this injury are still unclear, the 27-year-old's ability to practice again in any capacity is an encouraging sign for his availability against Atlanta on Sunday. Ebukam has totaled 14 tackles and 3.5 sacks while playing 173 of his 188 snaps on defense this season, and his presence in Week 6 could prove particularly important after fellow pass rusher Nick Bosa (groin) missed his second consecutive practice Thursday.

  • 49ers' Samson Ebukam: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    Ebukam didn't practice Wednesday due to an Achilles injury, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Ebukam dealt with a hamstring injury ahead of Week 5, but he still suited up and recorded two tackles across a season-high 45 defensive snaps. However, he appears to have picked up an Achilles issue during the contest as well. The extent of the situation remains unclear, but if he doesn't return to practice Thursday or Friday, Ebukam will be in jeopardy of missing Week 6.

  • 49ers' Samson Ebukam: Misses practice Wednesday

    Ebukam (hamstring) did not participate in the 49ers' practice Wednesday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Ebukam was forced to miss most of August with a knee injury but has been relatively healthy for the month of September. The severity of the linebacker's hamstring injury is uncertain at this point, but Arden Key likely would take over Ebukam's depth role if he can't play Sunday at Arizona.

  • 49ers' Samson Ebukam: Off injury report

    Ebukam (knee) isn't listed on the 49ers' injury report Wednesday. Ebukam has been dealing with a knee injury for most of August, but he is finally off the injured list ahead of San Francisco's season opener against the Lions. Ebukam will likely fill a depth role in the opener if he remains healthy.

  • 49ers' Samson Ebukam: Dealing with swelling in leg

    Coach Kyle Shanahan said Sunday that Ebukam has been sidelined in practice recently due to swelling in his leg, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports. Shanahan compared Ebukam's injury to normal wear and tear players experience early in training camp, but the team has elected to give him some rest as a precautionary measure. Although the 2017 fourth-rounder doesn't appear to be facing a long-term absence, it's not yet clear whether the injury will impact his availability for Saturday's exhibition game against the Chiefs.

  • Rams' Samson Ebukam: Notches 4.5 sacks again

    Ebukam managed 31 tackles (18 solo), 4.5 sacks, one pass breakup and one forced fumble across 16 games in 2020. Ebukam has now logged back-to-back seasons with 4.5 sacks. The 25-year-old has been a dependable contributor in Los Angeles' linebacker corps over the last four years, though he's enjoyed a large enough role to carry real fantasy value in IDP leagues. Next, Ebukam is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in March.

  • Rams' Samson Ebukam: Absent from injury report

    Ebukam (knee) wasn't on the team's injury report for Wednesday's practice, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports. The third-year pro was expected to be worked in slowly this offeseason as he recovered from offseason knee surgery. Now fully healthy, Ebukam should have a role in the defense for 2019, after starting 14 of 16 games at outside linebacker for the Rams last season. Ebukam is listed as a second-string linebacker on the depth chart, but should see time on both defense and special teams for Week 1.

  • Rams' Samson Ebukam: Recovering from knee surgery

    Ebukam is recovering from a minor knee surgery and likely will be brought along slowly this spring, Gary Klein of The Los Angeles Times reports. The 2017 fourth-round pick started 14 of 16 games at outside linebacker in his second pro season, notching 40 tackles (25 solo), three sacks, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and an interception. It sounds like Ebukam will be healthy before the start of training camp, but he may face some competition for a starting job after the Rams signed Clay Matthews to a two-year, $9.25 million contract. It's also possible the Rams use Matthews and Ebukam as their starting OLBs, with Dante Fowler then coming off the bench to focus on rushing the passer. Regardless of how it shakes out, each of the three players should have an important role in Wade Phillips' 3-4 defense.
