Exum (concussion) is expected to start with Jaquiski Tartt out for Monday's contest against the Giants.
Exum has played sparingly, acting mainly as a special team's player through the first 10 games. In his two starts this season, Exum tallied 12 tackles, most of which came during a career-high nine-tackle performance against the Chiefs in Week 3.
Exum (concussion) is not listed on Thursday's injury report.
Exum appears to have cleared the league's concussion protocol and is on track to suit up against the Giants on Monday. With Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) questionable for Week 10, Exum could be in line for an increased defensive workload.
Exum (concussion) will not play against the Raiders on Thursday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Exum sustained a concussion during Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, and it's no surprise that the rotational safety will not clear the league's concussion protocol during a short week. With Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) questionable for Week 9, San Francisco may ask one of Jimmie Ward, Tyvis Powell or K'Waun Williams to slot in at the strong safety position.
Exum is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Cardinals due to a head injury, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Exum was called upon to start after Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) was ruled out to return Sunday, and will now leave the field himself. With Exum injured, one of Tyvis Powell or Jimmie Ward will likely serve as the 49ers' starting strong safety. Rookie quarterback Josh Rosen will look to exploit a deeply depleted San Francisco secondary if Exum is unable to return.
Exum started at strong safety and recorded three tackles (all solo) and a pick-six in Sunday's loss to San Diego.
Exum earned another start in place of Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) after being cleared of his own injury prior to kickoff. The 27-year-old immediately made an impact with a 32-yard interception return for a touchdown in the first quarter. Exum now has 12 tackles, a sack and an interception in two starts, and he should continue to start for however long Tartt remains sidelined.
