Carridine was placed on injured reserve with a designation to return following the 49ers' Week 3 loss to the Rams. He has been practicing with the team the last two weeks and finally appears set to return Sunday barring any setbacks. He is likely to challenge for a starting role at some point, but the team figures to ease him back into action right away.
Carradine (ankle) is expected to be activated from injured reserve ahead of Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Carradine has been practicing for two weeks now and appears to be recovering well from the high-ankle sprain that has sidelined him for the last seven contests. Assuming Carradine endures no setbacks during the week, he'll likely be activated and could immediately challenge for a starting role Sunday. At the very least, Carradine should be firmly in the mix of a defensive-end rotation that already includes Solomon Thomas (knee), Leger Douzable, Ronald Blair, Elvis Dumervil, Cassius Marsh and Aaron Lynch.
Carradine (ankle) returned to practice Thursday, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reports.
Carradine was placed on injured reserve in late September after suffering a high-ankle sprain. The linebacker isn't eligible to play in a game until Week 12, so look for more updates to come over the next couple of weeks.
Carradine (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Carradine, who is nursing a high-ankle sprain, was expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks after an MRI revealed no significant damage, but the 49ers still opted to clear up a roster spot. The 28-year-old could be a candidate to return from IR in eight weeks, but in the meantime, rookie Solomon Thomas will likely see the most significant boost in playing time.
Carradine (ankle) is expected to be sidelined 4-6 weeks after an MRI revealed no significant damage, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
While not great news, the 49ers have to be exhaling some sighs of relief Saturday. There were rumblings of a possible season-ending injury prior to the MRI results, so 4-6 weeks seems like a much better outlook when putting things into perspective. In the meantime, rookie Solomon Thomas should be the primary beneficiary.
