Seahawks' Ahkello Witherspoon: Slated for No. 1 role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witherspoon (knee) is expected to be the Seahawks' No. 1 cornerback this season, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Witherspoon never quite got his footing in San Francisco due to a crowded secondary and injuries. He's healthy at training camp and is ready to compete for the top job. The Seahawks desperately need him to step into the No. 1 role after Shaquill Griffin left for Jacksonville. So far in camp, the 26-year-old has been sticky in coverage, using his athleticism -- he's 6-foot-3 with 33-inch arms and a 40-inch vertical -- to shut down the team's top receivers. D.J. Reed is expected to secure the other top cornerback role.

Seahawks' Ahkello Witherspoon: Rehabbing knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witherspoon (knee) is present at OTAs, but rehabbing an injury, Michael-Shawn Dugar of The Athletic reports.

Witherspoon, who the Seahawks brought in during free agency, is expected to handle a starting role at cornerback, so his health will need to be monitored during OTAs. Of course, there's not yet any reason to believe his injury is more than minor. He did miss five games with the 49ers last season, but that was due to a hamstring issue.

Seahawks' Ahkello Witherspoon: Heading to Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witherspoon agreed to a one-year contract with the Seahawks on Tuesday, NFL reporter Josina Anderson reports.

The 25-year-old spent his first four seasons in San Francisco and will remain in the NFC West for at least one more year. Witherspoon missed time in 2020 with a hamstring injury and had 20 tackles (17 solo) and one interception in 11 games for the 49ers.

49ers' Ahkello Witherspoon: Ready to go Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witherspoon (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.

The 25-year-old missed the past two games with the hamstring injury and was questionable for Week 5, but he's good to go versus Miami. Witherspoon should be heavily relied upon with Richard Sherman (calf) and K'Waun Williams (knee) on injured reserve, while Emmanuel Moseley (concussion) and Dontae Johnson (groin) are inactive.

49ers' Ahkello Witherspoon: Officially listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witherspoon (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Witherspoon has missed two straight games due to a lingering hamstring injury, but it looks like he has a fair shot to retake the field versus Miami. Emmanuel Moseley (concussion), Richard Sherman (calf), K'Waun Williams (knee) and Dontae Johnson (groin) are all ruled out for Week 5, so getting Witherspoon back would provide a much-needed boost for San Francisco's secondary.

49ers' Ahkello Witherspoon: Still limited at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witherspoon (hamstring) was held to limited practice participation Thursday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Witherspoon continues to turn in practice participation despite missing game action. The 25-year-old has missed the last two games with the hamstring issue, and he's in jeopardy of missing more action. Fellow starting corner Emmanuel Moseley has missed the past few games with a concussion, so the cornerback depth chart is extremely thin for the 49ers at the moment.

49ers' Ahkello Witherspoon: Ruled out of Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witherspoon (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Eagles, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Witherspoon's injury appeared to get worse as the week progressed as he logged an FP/LP/DNP practice schedule en route to being ruled out completely. Emmanuel Moseley (concussion) also won't play along with Richard Sherman, who is still on IR with a hamstring injury. K'Waun Williams (hip) is next in line, but he's considered questionable as well. Dontae Johnson, Jason Verrett and, to a lesser extent, Ken Webster all figure to have a role in Sunday's game as a result.

49ers' Ahkello Witherspoon: Limited for practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witherspoon (hamstring) was held to limited practice participation Thursday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

The fourth-year pro was unable to suit up Week 3 against the Giants, but the depleted San Francisco secondary was still capable of containing Daniel Jones to just 179 yards passing with no touchdowns and one interception. It may be more urgent to get Witherspoon back in the lineup for an upcoming matchup against Philadelphia, though Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz has struggled in his own right, composing a 3:6 TD:INT in the early going. Witherspoon was a late addition to the injury report last week before being deemed inactive, but a limited session Thursday provides hope he will be able to suit up against the Eagles.

49ers' Ahkello Witherspoon: Practices fully Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witherspoon (hamstring) practiced without limitations Wednesday, Keiana Martin of the 49ers' official site reports.

Witherspoon sat out of this past Sunday's game versus the Giants due to a hamstring injury, but it appears he's shaken it off and should be ready for Week 4's clash against the Eagles. The matchup could be quite favorable for Witherspoon depending on whether Eagles wide receivers Alshon Jeffery (foot) and/or DeSean Jackson (hamstring) play.

49ers' Ahkello Witherspoon: Officially out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witherspoon (hamstring) won't suit up in Sunday's game against the Giants, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Witherspoon was a late add to the injury report Friday dealing with the hamstring issue. With Richard Sherman (calf) already on IR, the team will be without two of its top corners. With Witherspoon sidelined, look for K'Waun Williams or Dontae Johnson to draw the start Sunday.

49ers' Ahkello Witherspoon: Questionable for Sunday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witherspoon (hamstring) is considered questionable for Sunday's game versus the Giants, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The 49ers are already without Richard Sherman (calf), and now they're in danger of missing Witherspoon as well. Witherspoon played all 65 snaps in Week 2 and finished with five tackles, but if he's forced to sit out, expect K'Waun Williams to bump into a starting role while Dontae Johnson sees an increase in usage.

49ers' Ahkello Witherspoon: Clears concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witherspoon has cleared concussion protocol and doesn't carry an injury designation heading into Sunday's game against the Jets, Cam Inman of The Mercury News reports.

The injury-riddled 49ers secondary can use as many warm bodies as it can get, so Witherspoon clearing concussion protocol is certainly a boon to this unit. Witherspoon managed just one tackle against Arizona in Week 1 before sustaining the injury that put him into concussion protocol.

49ers' Ahkello Witherspoon: Still in concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witherspoon hasn't cleared the NFL's concussion protocol and remains questionable for Sunday's game versus the Jets, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Earlier on Friday, GM John Lynch said Witherspoon had cleared the concussion protocol, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic, but the 49ers have since walked back that statement saying that he appears on track to suit up in Sunday's game despite still being in the protocol. If Witherspoon suits up as expected, he's going to start in place of Richard Sherman (calf) and cover a mix of Breshad Perriman, Chris Hogan and Braxton Berrios.

49ers' Ahkello Witherspoon: Ready to start Week 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager John Lynch said Friday that Witherspoon has cleared the concussion protocol and will replace Richard Sherman (calf) in the starting lineup Week 2, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Witherspoon is set to start as the 49ers' "field" cornerback against the Jets on Sunday, a role which he should hold on to for at least three weeks while Sherman works to recover from his calf injury. However, the 25-year-old doesn't offer much upside in IDP formats due to his low career tackle numbers.

49ers' Ahkello Witherspoon: Making progress in protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witherspoon (concussion) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Witherspoon began the week as a non-participant in practice, so that he's now upgraded to limited activity is an indication that he's making progress through the league's five-step concussion protocol. He'll need to gain full medical clearance in order to suit up against the Jets on Sunday. With Richard Sherman (calf) set to spend at least three weeks on IR, Witherspoon will likely slot into the starting lineup across from Emmanuel Moseley when he's cleared to retake the field.

September 16, 2020 01:28 PM
49ers' Ahkello Witherspoon: Enters concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witherspoon is in the concussion protocol Wednesday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Witherspoon appears to have sustained a brain injury during Week 1's divisional loss to the Cardinals. With Richard Sherman (calf) expected to spend time on IR, Witherspoon looks likely to slot into the starting lineup across from Emmanuel Moseley when healthy. However, it remains to be seen whether he'll gain full clearance in time to suit up against the Jets on Sunday.

49ers' Ahkello Witherspoon: Falls out of favor late in season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witherspoon had 28 tackles (24 solo), nine passes defended, an interception and a touchdown in 10 games during the 2019 regular season.

Witherspoon got the campaign off to a strong start, finally looking like a starting NFL corner opposite Richard Sherman before going down to injury in Week 3. Perhaps his foot never fully healed, as the 24-year-old did not look the same upon returning Week 11, eventually losing his starting role to Emmanuel Moseley down the stretch. Witherspoon may have a chance to regain his starting gig during training camp next season, but even if he does, the corner won't have much IDP value with low tackle totals and just three interceptions over 36 career games.

49ers' Ahkello Witherspoon: Practices without limitations
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witherspoon (calf) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Witherspoon exited Sunday's win over the Packers due to a calf injury, but he already looks back to full health. Barring any setbacks, expect the third-year cornerback to play his usual rotational role against the Ravens on Sunday.

49ers' Ahkello Witherspoon: Injures calf
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witherspoon (calf) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Packers, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

With the 49ers holding a commanding fourth-quarter lead, Witherspoon's likely done for the day even if the injury isn't serious. Expect another update on the defensive back's status prior to San Francisco's Week 13 clash against the Ravens.

November 17, 2019 02:56 PM
49ers' Ahkello Witherspoon: Ready for Sunday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Witherspoon (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

As expected, Witherspoon avoided a setback and will gear up for the divisional matchup. This will be his first outing since Week 3, and the third-year pro should slide back into a starting role. Over the first three games, Witherspoon posted nine tackles, five pass breakups and a pick-six.
