Dial announced Friday that he plans to retire from the NFL, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Dial did not see NFL action in 2018 after serving as a rotational defensive tackle for the Packers a year prior. The 28-year-old spent his first four seasons in San Francisco, and he finishes with 145 tackles (90) and 4.5 sacks for his career.
Dial (chest) is active Sunday against the Browns.
Dial has logged between 24 and 34 defensive snaps in each of the three weeks since returning from a chest injury. He should see a similar role Sunday, spelling Kenny Clark when need be.
Dial (chest) will play in Sunday's game against Baltimore, Jason Wahlers of the Packers' official site reports.
Dial's inclusion on the injury report to end the week was a bit of a surprise after he was a full participant in each of the team's practices. With Montravius Adams (coaches decision) inactive, Dial will be the Packers' only backup along the defensive line.
Dial (chest) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Ravens.
Dial was a full participant in practice Wednesday through Friday, so despite getting the questionable tag for the Week 11 matchup, he seems likely to play. The nose tackle missed the Packers' previous two games with the injury.
Dial (chest) will not play in the Packers' Sunday matchup against the Bears, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com 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.
Dial (chest) has been ruled out for Monday's game against Detroit.
Dial entered the weekend with a cloud of doubt hanging over his head, and the worst-case scenario was confirmed Monday. With the defensive tackle inactive against the Lions, Kenny Clark should be the main cog along the defensive front.
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.
Dial signed a contract with the Packers on Tuesday, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reports.
The Packers let go ofBrian Price and brought in Dial to replace him. Dial will rotate in with Kenny Clark and Mike Daniels, but he shouldn't be expected to be a serious fantasy contributor.
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.
Dial (elbow) was a full participant during Wednesday's practice.
Dial appears ready to return to game action in Week 15 against the Falcons after missing Sunday's loss to the Jets. He'll provide depth at defensive end behind Chris Jones and DeForest Buckner.
Dial (elbow) is inactive Sunday against the Jets.
Dial will miss his second consecutive game with an elbow issue. In his absence, Tony Jerrod-Eddie figures to see a slight uptick in defensive snaps.
Dial (elbow) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Jets.
Dial was limited in practice Thursday and Friday after sitting out entirely on Wednesday. Tony Jerod-Eddie will likely see some extra snaps if Dial is held out.
Dial (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Dolphins, Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group reports.
Dial is slated to miss his first game of the season after racking up 30 tackles (21 solo) during the 49ers' first 10 contests. The team likely will increase the roles of Tony Jerod-Eddie and Ronald Blair on the defensive line.
Dial (knee) was a full participant in Friday's practice.
Though limited during Wednesday and Thursday's sessions, Dial appears good to go and will play Sunday against the Panthers.
Dial (knee) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.
Dial's knee injury limited him in Monday's game against the Rams, as he saw only 25 snaps, equating to only 41 percent of San Francisco's defensive plays. Keep tabs on him as the week rolls on.
Dial (knee) was a limited participant in practice Thursday, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.
Dial injured his knee in the 49ers' third preseason game and the team has kept the details of his injury hidden. His participation in practice is encouraging and he's expected to play in San Francisco's tilt against Los Angeles in Week 1.
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.
Dial injured his knee during Friday's preseason loss to the Packers, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
The 49ers are awaiting word on an MRI of Dial's knee, after which a timetable for a return can be charted. In 15 games last season, the defensive tackle notched 59 tackles (32 solo) and 2.5 sacks.
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.
49ers running back Frank Gore (concussion) and wide receiver Michael Crabtree (knee) are active for Saturday's Week 16 matchup with the Chargers.
Both players were listed as questionable on the team's final injury report, though it was reported early Saturday that Gore would in fact suit up for the game. Crabtree has yet to miss a game this season.
Offensive tackle Anthony Davis (concussion) is also active after being listed as questionable. The team had several players listed as probable and all are active Saturday, including cornerbacks Perrish Cox (ankle) and Chris Culliver (knee), safety Bubba Ventrone (groin), linebacker Michael Wilhoite (hip), tackle Jonathan Martin (illness), center Marcus Martin (knee), tight end Kyle Nelson (back) and defensive linemen Justin Smith (back), Quinton Dial (knee) and Tony Jerod-Eddie (foot).
