by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlinson (knee) started at left guard in Saturday's preseason game against the Chiefs.

Tomlinson sufferd a torn MCL in Week 17 last season, but he started both the second and third preseason contests for San Francisco. The 27-year-old started 31 of 32 games for the 49ers over the past two seasons and will resume his starting role in 2019.

49ers' Laken Tomlinson: Nursing torn MCL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomlinson (knee) sustained a torn MCL during Sunday's loss to the Rams, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

Tomlinson faces a three-month recovery timetable for his MCL injury and could miss a portion of offseason workouts as a result. The former 2015 first-round pick was initially feared to have sustained a torn ACL, so despite the torn MCL, this report is very good news for Tomlinson.

49ers' Laken Tomlinson: Questionable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlinson is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Rams, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

49ers' Laken Tomlinson: Signs three-year extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlinson agreed to a three-year contract extension Friday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN reports.

The 49ers declined the fifth-year team option on Tomlinson's contract in early May, but as Friday's extension indicates, they still view him as a starting offensive lineman. However, the team apparently didn't feel that Tomlinson was worth the $9.6 million he otherwise would have been owed under the previous terms. Regardless, the 2015 first-rounder is now set to stick around in San Francisco through the 2021 campaign.

49ers' Laken Tomlinson: Fifth-year option not exercised
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers won't exercise Tomlinson's fifth-year team option for the 2019 season, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The 49ers still view Tomlinson as a starting-caliber lineman, but not one who deserves the $9.6 million salary the team option would have granted him. Instead, general manager John Lynch said the team and Tomlinson's agents are currently in the process of working out a long-term deal, per NBC Sports Bay Area.

49ers' Laken Tomlinson: Heads to San Francisco
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlinson was traded Thursday from the Lions to the 49ers in exchange for a 2019 fifth-round pick, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Tomlinson, a 2015 first-round pick, started 24 of 32 games during his two seasons with Detroit. He's seen most of his time at left guard during his professional career, and could unseat veteran Zane Beadles for starting duties at that position with his new team.
