Recovering from finger surgery
Latest Headline: Published 2023-05-25
Greenlaw is not present at OTAs as he recovers from offseason surgery on his finger, David Bonilla of 49ers WebZone reports.
The procedure was described as "nothing major" and "a little cleanup," and there have been no reported setbacks in Greenlaw's recovery. Once he can return to the field, Greenlaw will need to adjust to new defensive coordinator Steve Wilks' scheme, and he hopes to be able to rush the quarterback more often.

Good to go for playoffs

Greenlaw (back) doesn't carry a designation for Saturday's wild-card game against the Seahawks.
Greenlaw was sidelined for the 49ers' regular-season finale against Arizona due to a back injury sustained Week 17. However, he was able to return to practice in full Thursday after logging back-to-back limited practices earlier in the week, and San Francisco coach Kyle Shanahan said the linebacker will be a "full go" for Saturday's wild-card game against Seattle, according to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle. Greenlaw has amassed a career-high 127 tackles, six passes defended, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries this season, and he'll continue to form one of the league's best linebacker duos alongside Fred Warner heading into the playoffs.
Practicing in limited fashion

Greenlaw (back) logged limited practice sessions Tuesday and Wednesday ahead of San Francisco's wild-card game against Seattle on Saturday.
Greenlaw hurt his back against the Raiders in Week 17 and missed San Francisco's regular-season finale versus Arizona after logging three DNPs during the week. However, his ability to practice -- albeit in limited fashion -- both Tuesday and Wednesday suggests that he has a chance to participate in Saturday's wild-card contest versus the Seahawks. That would be a big boost to the 49ers' defense, as Greenlaw ranked second on the team with 127 tackles while adding an interception and two forced fumbles during 15 regular-season games.
Expected to practice this week
Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-09
Greenlaw (back) is expected to return to practice before Saturday's wild-card round game against the Seahawks, Josh Dubow of The Associated Press reports.
Greenlaw was unable to practice in any capacity before sitting out the regular-season finale, but a return to practice could pave the way for the productive linebacker to suit up in San Francisco's playoff opener. Greenlaw had 127 tackles (82 solo) over 15 appearances in the regular season.
Out Week 18
Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-06
Greenlaw (back) has been ruled out of the 49ers' regular-season finale against the Cardinals, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
No surprise here, as Greenlaw was unable to practice during the week after injuring his back in Week 17. The 49ers will err on the side of caution ahead of wild-card weekend. In his absence, Oren Burks is the likely candidate to replace him at weakside linebacker.

Greenlaw (back) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice.
Greenlaw exited the 49ers' previous game against Las Vegas early after injuring his back. His non participation Tuesday is not a good start to the week, so his status will need to be monitored going forward. Oren Burks would be the prime candidate to replace him at weakside linebacker if he ultimately has to miss any time
May not miss time
Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-03
Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday that he is hopeful Greenlaw (back) does not miss any time, but that the team still needed to conduct further testing, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.
Greenlaw was expected to undergo an MRI on Monday, after he suffered a back injury in Sunday's win over the Raiders. He is still considered questionable for Week 18 against the Cardinals.
Set for MRI on back
Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-01
Coach Kyle Shanahan said Greenlaw will undergo an MRI on Monday on the back injury he suffered during Sunday's win at Las Vegas, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
At the point of his departure in the second half, Greenlaw had eight tackles, marking his fifth game in a row to reach that threshold. Monday's test may shed some light on his availability for the 49ers' regular-season finale against the Cardinals.
Exits versus Las Vegas
Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-01
Greenlaw is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Raiders with a back injury, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Greenlaw tallied eight tackles before he injured his back Sunday, leaving his availability for the second half up in the air. In his stead, expect Oren Burks and/or Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles to see increased usage for the time being.
