Al-Shaair (concussion) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Packers, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Al-Shaair is likely to start at strongside linebacker in Week 10 against the Seahawks, Kelana Martin of the 49ers' official site reports.
Al-Shaair took over at the SAM position after Kwon Alexander departed Thursday's matchup against the Cardinals with a torn pectoral muscle, forcing Dre Greenlaw to the weak side.

The torn ACL that Al-Shaair suffered last October prevented him from getting drafted, but the linebacker has some potential if his health checks out fine ahead of the upcoming season.

There's still a solid chance he could open training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list.
