by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dial (chest) will play in Sunday's game against Baltimore, Jason Wahlers of the Packers' official site reports.

Packers' Quinton Dial: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dial (chest) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Packers' Quinton Dial: Ruled out for Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dial (chest) will not play in the Packers' Sunday matchup against the Bears, Rob Demovsky of reports.

This news is unsurprising, as Dial was unable to participate in practice throughout the week. Kenny Clark will remain the man in the middle on the defensive line, but depth could become an issue in Dial's absence.

Packers' Quinton Dial: Inactive for Monday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Packers' Quinton Dial: Unlikely to play Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dial has a chest injury and is listed as doubtful for Monday night's game against the Lions, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Dial has been a depth piece in the Packers' defensive line rotation since signing with the team prior to the season opener and did not practice this week. Kenny Clark is the only remaining nose tackle on Green Bay's roster, and the team may need to do some rotation shuffling for Monday's game with Dial unlikely to play.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dial signed a contract with the Packers on Tuesday, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reports.

Quinton Dial: Released by 49ers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers opted to release Dial on Saturday, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports.

The move is somewhat surprising, as Dial had been a two-year starter at defensive tackle. However, unlike nearly every starter on the team, Dial played in Week 4 of the preseason, signaling he was playing for a job. Ultimately, he was not a good fit for the 49ers' new defensive scheme this system.

49ers' Quinton Dial: Expected to be ready Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dial (knee) will not play in Thursday's preseason finale against San Diego, but head coach Chip Kelly expects him to be ready by Week 1, CSN Bay Area reports.

Dial went down with a knee injury in last week's preseason loss to Green Bay. He went for an MRI but the team has inexplicably kept the results of the test under wraps. If Kelly is correct and Dial is able to suit up against the Rams on Sept. 12 then he will serve as one of the team's three starting defensive linemen.

49ers' Quinton Dial: Signs three-year extension, expected to start in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers have signed Dial to a three-year extension, The Sacramento Bee reports.

Dial - who would have been a free agent after the 2016 season - set career-highs in tackles (59 combined) and sacks (2.5) this past year. He showed enough improvement for the 49ers' front office to extend his contract through the 2019 season. A former fifth-round draft pick in 2013, Dial has outworked higher draft picks from that class - such as Tank Carradine and Corey Lemonier - to earn a starting spot next year.
