Attaochu signed a one-year contract with the 49ers on Thursday, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reports. "Jeremiah has been quite disruptive during his career despite his limited opportunities playing behind some top tier defensive ends," general manager John Lynch said. "He is a wonderful fit for our scheme and our locker room. We expect Jeremiah to be productive on defense, while also providing us an exceptional player on special teams. He's another guy who fits the mold of a 49er."
Attaochu was a second-round pick by the Chargers back in 2014, but injuries over the past two seasons have limited his opportunities. Last season he spent most of the year as a healthy scratch, playing behind a deep linebacking corps.
Attaochochu was a full participant at the Chargers practice Sunday.
Attaochu was questionable for the season opener due to a hamstring injury and ultimately did not play. He appeared recovered from the issue prior to Week 2, as he logged full practices all week. However, he was ultimately ruled inactive for the team's loss to the Dolphins. It is unclear if he suffered a setback or just was not in the team's game plan. The 24-year-old is on track to make his season debut Sunday against the Chiefs unless he sees another healthy scratch.
Attaochu (hamstring) is listed as inactive for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Attaochu will miss his second consecutive game even after playing three full practices in the week prior. Regardless, his main contributions are on special teams so the Chargers defense shouldn't suffer much from his absence.
Attaochu (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
Attaochu put in three full practices this week after sitting out Week 1 and seems like he should be ready to play Sunday. The 24-year-old will likely serve as a reserve linebacker, although he could also make an impact on special teams.
