Ditches walking boot

Greenlaw (Achilles) no longer requires a walking boot, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Greenlaw made a public appearance at an event in San Jose and discussed his recovery from Achilles surgery. He has previously said he hopes to be ready for Week 1, and his ability to walk without a boot is a small step in that direction. Greenlaw's level of participation at the start of training camp will be more telling regarding his availability come the regular season.

Wants to be ready for Week 1

Greenlaw (Achilles) is shooting to be ready for the start of the season, according to general manager John Lynch, but he may need to start the season on the PUP list, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Greenlaw had surgery days after the Super Bowl to repair a torn left Achilles tendon he suffered during the game. How likely it is the Arkansas product will be ready Week 1 won't likely be known until the team arrives for training camp in late July.

Undergoes surgery

Greenlaw had successful surgery to repair his torn Achilles on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Greenlaw suffered the injury during the Super Bowl and will now face a lengthy recovery. He is expected to return to full strength, but he could miss a portion of the 2024 season as a result. A clearer timeline should emerge throughout the offseason.

Greenlaw suffered a torn Achilles in Sunday's 25-22 overtime loss to the Chiefs, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Greenlaw suffered the fluky injury while taking the field early in the second quarter. He turned in an excellent regular season that was highlighted by 120 tackles, and he was a key member of the 49ers' defense by playing 811 snaps. The injury is likely to affect his viability for the 2024 campaign, though an exact timeline for his return to the field is unclear.

Officially ruled out

Greenlaw (Achilles) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Albert Breer of reports.

Greelnaw was injured while running back onto the field from the sideline early in the second quarter. He was diagnosed with an Achilles injury, so the fact that he's been ruled out doesn't come as much of a surprise. Oren Burks and Dee Winters will be asked to step up in Greenlaw's absence.

Greenlaw (Achilles) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Nick Wagoner of reports.

Greenlaw suffered the injury while running onto the field early in the second quarter. The exact diagnosis is unclear, but he was checked out in the blue tent before being carted to the locker room. Though Greenlaw is officially listed as questionable, it would be surprising to see him return based on the suspected nature of the injury, meaning Oren Burks and Dee Winters will both likely to be asked to step up.

Will play versus Green Bay

Greenlaw (Achilles) is active for Saturday's divisional-round game against the Packers, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Greenlaw was able to get two weeks of rest for his Achilles injury, thanks to his rest for the 49ers' regular-season finale against the Rams and the bye week as the top seed in the NFC. He was a limited participant in Wednesday's and Thursday's practice and will suit up for Saturday's contest. Greenlaw finished the regular season with with 120 tackles (75 solo), including 1.5 sacks over 15 games.

Status up in the air for Saturday

Greenlaw (Achilles) is listed as questionable for Saturday's divisional-round game against the Packers, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Greenlaw is tending to an Achilles injury that sidelined him for the 49ers' regular-season finale, and he was a non-participant during the team's practice Tuesday. The 26-year-old followed this up with back-to-back limited sessions, and he was the only San Francisco player listed as questionable on Thursday's injury report. Greenlaw has ranks second on the team in tackles (120) this season behind only 2023 All-Pro Fred Warner (127). Should Greenlaw ultimately sit out again, then Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles and/or Dee Winters will be next in line for increased playing time in the divisional round.

Back at practice

Greenlaw (Achilles) was a limited participant at the 49ers' practice Wednesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Greenlaw sat out the team's final regular season game Jan. 7 and opened the week as a non-participant Wednesday due to an Achilles injury, but his ability to return Wednesday, albeit in limited capacity, bodes well for his chances to go Saturday versus Green Bay. The linebacker will look to increase his workload Thursday ahead of the team's divisional round matchup with the Packers.
