Attaochu (hamstring) returned to practice Sunday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Attaochu won't be a starting defensive end in 2018. However, he'll still get his fair share of defensive snaps since Solomon Thomas is expected to shift to tackle on passing downs and Arik Armstead, who has missed 18 games due to injuries the last two seasons, is struggling with a hamstring injury. This means Attaochu may be put into pass-rushing situations when Thomas moves to the middle.
Attaochu has a hamstring injury and will not participate at practice Friday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Attaochu signed a one-year deal with the 49ers in March and is likely to serve a rotational role on the team's defensive line. The specifics and severity of the hamstring issue remain unclear.
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.
