Finds new home in Atlanta

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-05-13

The Falcons signed Dwelley (ankle) on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Dwelley finished last season on injured reserve after sustaining an ankle injury, but it now seems as if he's moved past the issue. After spending the first six seasons of his NFL career with the 49ers, the 29-year-old tight end has agreed to terms with the Falcons. Across his last three seasons, Dwelley has appeared in 41 games and made two starts, catching eight of his 12 targets for 168 yards and two touchdowns. Despite his underwhelming offensive production, the San Diego product has been a consistent contributor on special teams (619 special teams snaps over the last three years), and he's expected to compete for a similar role in Atlanta.

Lands on IR

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-06

The 49ers placed Dwelley (ankle) to the injured reserve Saturday.

Dwelley sustained a high-ankle sprain in Week 13 against the Eagles. He hasn't managed to suit up since, and with his placement on IR, his season is officially over. Dwelley had one catch on two targets for 12 yards over 12 games this season as he operated mostly as a pass-blocking tight end and on special teams.

Out for Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-05

Dwelley (ankle) is out for Sunday's game against the Rams, Nick Wagoner of reports.

The veteran tight end hasn't played since Week 13. Charlie Woerner and Brayden Willis should see plenty of action Sunday against the Rams with the Niners expected to rest several key starters, including George Kittle.

Out again

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-31

Dwelley (ankle) will not play in Sunday's matchp with the Commanders.

Dwelley's absence will mark his fourth straight due to an ankle injury. As a result, Charlie Woerner and Brayden Willis figure to continue as depth tight end options behind George Kittle. Dwelley's next chance to suit up will come in the 49ers' regular season finale versus the Rams.

Missing third straight game Monday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-23

Dwelley (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Ravens, Cam Inman of The Mercury News reports.

Dwelley will miss a third consecutive game as a result of his ankle injury. The backup tight end's next opportunity to suit up will be Week 17 against the Commanders. Charlie Woerner and Bradyden Willis will continue to fill depth roles behind George Kittle against the Ravens.

Misses another practice

Dwelley (ankle) did not practice Friday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Dwelley has missed San Francisco's past two games due to an ankle injury, and his chance of playing Monday against Baltimore isn't strong given that he has sat out the team's first two practices this week. In fact, the veteran tight end hasn't been able to practice at all since getting hurt Week 13 versus Philadelphia. Brayden Willis could continue to see a handful of snaps on offense Monday if Dwelley is sidelined again.

Misses practice Thursday

Dwelley (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

The third-string tight end has missed two straight games and appears to be trending that way again heading into Monday's matchup with the Ravens. Dwelley has one catch for 12 yards this season.

Missing another game

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-15

Dwelley (ankle) won't play in Sunday's Week 15 contest against the Cardinals, Nick Wagoner of reports.

Dwelley is dealing with a high-ankle sprain, and he wasn't able to practice at all this week. He also missed last Sunday's win over the Seahawks, giving Brayden Willis the chance to see his first action since Week 4. Dwelley's Week 15 absence won't set off many alarms in fantasy circles, as he's made just one catch (on two targets) over 12 games this season.

Won't play Sunday

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-08

Dwelley (ankle) has been ruled out ahead of Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Dwelley sustained a right high-ankle sprain in the 49ers' Week 13 win over the Eagles. He was unable to participate in practice all week and is set to miss his first game of the year. In Dwelley's absence, Brayden Willis is set to step into the No. 3 tight end role behind George Kittle and Charlie Woerner.
