49ers DE Glenn Dorsey (knee) is inactive for Week 5 against the Cardinals.
He popped up on the injury report Wednesday. Dorsey has played only 45 snaps this season, but his absence is a bigger deal with DE DeForest Buckner (foot) sidelined. David Johnson is going to run wild for the Cardinals. Thu, Oct 6, 2016 07:04:00 PM

Date:

49ers DE Glenn Dorsey (ACL) will be active for Week 1.

Dorsey went down last November. Dorsey started seven games in 2015, but will be more of a rotational player this season.
Thu, Sep 8, 2016 01:23:00 PM

49ers GM Trent Baalke declined to say if LE Glenn Dorsey (knee) will be ready for the start of the season.

Dorsey is five months into his ACL rehab. He's reportedly made "great progress," but his Week 1 status remains up in the air. Dorsey is a candidate to open training camp on the active/PUP list.
Wed, Apr 20, 2016 07:04:00 PM

49ers placed LE Glenn Dorsey (knee) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Dorsey is facing a 7-9 month ACL rehab. He’ll return at his $1.8M base salary in 2016. The 49ers claimed OLB Ray-Ray Armstrong off waivers to replace Dorsey.
Wed, Nov 25, 2015 07:11:00 PM

49ers LE Glenn Dorsey is out for the season with a torn ACL.

Dorsey is one of the few 49ers defenders who has shown any semblance of run-stopping ability this year. His loss should lead to more snaps for rookie Arik Armstead, who's flashed promise as a sub-package end up until this point.
Mon, Nov 23, 2015 03:46:00 PM

The 49ers fear LE Glenn Dorsey suffered a torn ACL in the Week 11 loss to the Seahawks.

Dorsey went down very early in the first quarter and had to be carted to the locker room. He'll undergo an MRI on Monday. He'd been playing average run defense this season before being removed in pass-rush situations.
Sun, Nov 22, 2015 08:01:00 PM

When asked if his torn biceps was fully healed, 49ers DL Glenn Dorsey said "I'm close."

Dorsey isn't practicing yet, but he'll be ready in plenty of time for the start of the season. The 29-year-old is one of a handful of candidates the 49ers are considering to replace Justin Smith at right end. Arik Armstead, Tony Jerod-Eddie and Ian Williams could see snaps there as well, particularly on passing downs.
Sun, May 24, 2015 12:51:00 PM

Glenn Dorsey is expected to take over as the 49ers' starting right end in base packages following RE Justin Smith's retirement.

Dorsey was the 49ers' starting nose tackle in 2013 before missing all of last season with a torn bicep. Prior to joining the 49ers, Dorsey was the Chiefs' starting right end in their 3-4 scheme. It's a familiar position for the former No. 5 overall pick. On passing downs, Tank Carradine will likely replace run-stuffing Dorsey.
Tue, May 19, 2015 08:20:00 PM

49ers placed NT Glenn Dorsey (biceps) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Dorsey suffered a setback and had been inactive the last three weeks. He returned from I.R./recall in mid-November, but wasn't able to appear in any games. The 49ers promoted CB Marcus Cromartie and OL Andrew Tiller in corresponding moves.
Sat, Dec 13, 2014 04:35:00 PM

49ers NT Glenn Dorsey (bicep) has been ruled out for Week 12 against the Redskins.

Activated Monday from injured reserve/designated to return, Dorsey was expected to start this week at nose for Ian Williams (broken leg, I.R.). Dorsey missed practice on Thursday and Friday, however, and is experiencing issues with his surgically repaired bicep. Quinton Dial will fill in at nose.

49ers activated NT Glenn Dorsey (biceps) from injured reserve/designated to return.

NT Ian Williams (broken leg) has been sent to injured reserve in a corresponding roster move. Williams' injury means Dorsey should immediately slide in as a starter.
Mon, Nov 17, 2014 04:43:00 PM

49ers did not activate NT Glenn Dorsey (biceps) for Week 11.

With Ian Williams sidelined, Quinton Dial will start Sunday against the Giants. Dorsey has resumed practicing and should be on track to return in Week 12.
Sat, Nov 15, 2014 03:37:00 PM

49ers NT Glenn Dorsey (biceps) has resumed practicing.

Dorsey is eligible to return from the injured reserve/designated for return list in Week 10. Ian Williams has held down the nose-tackle fort more than admirably in Dorsey's absence, so it's conceivable that Dorsey will return as a rotational run stopper only. He tore his left biceps in early August.
Mon, Oct 27, 2014 05:35:00 PM

49ers placed NT Glenn Dorsey (biceps) on injured reserve/designated to return.

Dorsey will miss at least the first eight games, but will likely be sidelined longer. It's possible he never suits up this season after going down in early August. Dorsey is under contract through 2016 after signing a two-year extension two weeks ago.
Tue, Sep 2, 2014 05:32:00 PM

The 49ers are expected to use their injured reserve/designated for return tag on NT Glenn Dorsey (torn biceps).

Dorsey tore his left biceps in early August, and the 49ers are hopeful he can make a late-season return. ILB Navorro Bowman (ACL, MCL) will open the year on the PUP list. The 49ers may view anything they get this year as a "bonus" from Dorsey. Their run defense will surely suffer without Dorsey and Bowman.
