Witherspoon (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Redskins.
Witherspoon suffered a concussion in last week's game against the Colts, leading him to be limited in practice throughout the week. He'll resume his normal role as one of the team's top backups at cornerback behind starters Dontae Johnson and Rashard Robinson.
Witherspoon (concussion) is considered questionable for Sunday's clash against the Redskins.
After three consecutive limited practice sessions, Witherspoon is looking like a game-time decision for Week 6. He will need to clear the team's concussion protocol in order to be activated.
Witherspoon was diagnosed with a concussion and didn't return to Sunday's overtime loss to the Colts, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Witherspoon exited in the first half to be evaluated for a concussion and was eventually ruled out. The rookie third-round pick will likely be required to clear the league protocol before his status for the Week 6 game against the Redskins is determined.
Witherspoon exited Sunday's game against the Colts and is being evaluated for a concussion, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Witherspoon is questionable to return to the game. K'waun Williams and Asa Jackson would likely to see increased roles if Witherspoon remains out.
In terms of size and athleticism, there's not much difference between Witherspoon and Kevin King, who the Packers selected 33rd overall. At 6-foot-3, 198 pounds, Witherspoon logged a 4.45-second 40 at the Combine, adding a 40.5-inch vertical and 127-inch broad jump. He was a leading contributor on a dominant Colorado pass defense, and he makes a fine selection for the 49ers here.
