Bills LB Scott McKillop "still seems to be favoring his surgically repaired knee."

It bodes extremely poorly for McKillop's chances of cracking Buffalo's 53, as it's been nearly two years since he tore his left ACL and patellar tendon. A fifth-round pick in 2009, McKillop was waived by the 49ers near the end of camp last season, and went unsigned until the offseason.

49ers waived ILB Scott McKillop.

A fifth-round pick in 2009, McKillop was once considered a possible successor to Takeo Spikes next to Patrick Willis. He didn't come back as strong after tearing his left ACL and patellar tendon last training camp. Also waived by the 49ers: RB Seth Smith, WR Tyler Beiler, OL Donovan Edwards, OG Nick Howell, and P Sam Paulescu.

Updating a previous item, the 49ers have not waived ILB Scott McKillop. had a transaction posted on its website that McKillop was waived, but the 49ers clarified the error on Friday afternoon. He remains on the roster, competing for backup snaps at inside linebacker and special teams duties.

49ers waived ILB Scott McKillop.

McKillop tore his left ACL and patellar tendon just over a year ago, and it's fair to wonder if reconstructive knee surgery cost him a step. He was acting as the 49ers' No. 4 inside linebacker in camp, behind Patrick Willis, Navorro Bowman, and Larry Grant. Unless old defensive coordinator Greg Manusky gives him a look in San Diego, McKillop will probably clear waivers.

49ers ILB Scott McKillop (torn ACL) remains on track to be ready for training camp.

49ers camp is currently scheduled to open on July 28, and McKillop's doctors have told him he should be ready. He'll be looking to earn a backup job at inside linebacker, and should also see time on special teams.
Wed, Jun 22, 2011 06:45:00 PM

49ers ILB Scott McKillop (recovery from torn ACL) should be close to 100 percent healthy for training camp.

McKillop blew out his knee in the first week of training camp last season, so he's had nearly an entire year to get healthy. He will battle Navorro Bowman for the right to be Takeo Spikes' primary backup at inside linebacker.

49ers waived/injured ILB Scott McKillop.

A 2009 fifth-round pick out of Pitt, McKillop was really coming on as a special teamer and Takeo Spikes' backup at "Ted" linebacker before tearing his left ACL and patellar tendon in camp. He faces a long road toward recovery.

49ers ILB Scott McKillop tore his left ACL and patella tendon, according to Sacramento Bee.

McKillop will miss the entire season. He led the team in special teams tackles in 2009 and was expected to serve the same role in 2010 while backing up Takeo Spikes at "ted" linebacker. The injury opens the door for Matt Whilhelm and Navorro Bowman.

According to beat writer Matt Barrows, the 49ers are on the lookout for inside linebackers this offseason because they don't trust Scott McKillop as Takeo Spikes' primary backup.

Last year's fifth-rounder was bypassed by street free agent Matt Wilhelm at mid-season because McKillop didn't meet Mike Singletary's expectations. Limited to special teams again in 2010, he may never pan out as key piece at linebacker.
Thu, Mar 25, 2010 05:43:00 PM

Rookie fifth-rounder Scott McKillop is expected to be the 49ers' future "Ted" linebacker.

The Niners were reportedly just as excited about drafting McKillop as they were with Michael Crabtree. The rookie out of Pittsburgh is expected to play "Robin" to Patrick Willis' "Batman" once Takeo Spikes moves on.
Tue, Jun 30, 2009 11:59:00 AM

49ers signed fifth-round ILB Scott McKillop to a four-year contract.

Aside from pre-draft deals with No. 1 picks, this is the earliest we've ever seen a draftee sign. A productive, try-hard type from Pittsburgh, McKillop practiced behind Takeo Spikes and Jeff Ulbrich at the TED linebacker position this spring. Ulbrich could be expendable if McKillop shows well.
