  • 49ers' Kevin Givens: Returns in full Tuesday

    Givens (knee) was listed as a full participant on the 49ers' injury report Tuesday.

    Givens has not played since sustaining a sprained MCL during the Week 14 win over Tampa Bay. The 25-year-old did return to practice in a limited fashion last Thursday, and he should now be set to reprise his rotational role at defensive tackle. Givens recorded a career-high 20 tackles, two sacks and a pass defended over 13 games this regular season, and he'll provide valuable depth alongside Javon Kinlaw (knee) and Arik Armstead (foot/ankle), both of whom were limited during practice Tuesday.

  • 49ers' Kevin Givens: Will likely miss some time

    Coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday that Givens (knee) will likely miss some time, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Givens, who was knocked out of Sunday's blowout win over the 49ers, is still undergoing testing, but the 49ers are hoping he suffered just an MCL injury and can return this season. If he's sidelined, Arik Armstead and T.Y. McGill would be the only available defensive tackles, so look for San Francisco to make a move soon to add depth to the interior of its defense.

  • 49ers' Kevin Givens: Will miss time

    Givens suffered an MCL sprain in Sunday's win over the Buccaneers and will be out for a few weeks, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

    Givens' diagnosis is what the team was hoping for despite it still likely leading to a multi-week absence. How long the 25-year-old could be out of action is still unknown, but it appears he's likely questionable at best on a short week with the 49ers playing the Seahawks on Thursday.

  • 49ers' Kevin Givens: Exits with injury Sunday

    Givens (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

    Givens went down with a knee injury that forced him into the medical tent early in the first quarter, according to Bridget Condon of NFL Network. The 25-year-old was then carted to the locker room shortly after. Givens' absence will leave Arik Armstead and T.Y. McGill as the 49ers' only available defensive tackles for the time being.

  • 49ers' Kevin Givens: Remains in San Francisco

  • 49ers' Kevin Givens: Activated for Week 8

    Givens (ankle) has been activated from IR ahead of Sunday's game with the Bears, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Givens was designated to return from IR earlier in the week and didn't have to wait long to get back into uniform. He's been out since Week 2 with the ankle injury and should immediately slide back into the rotation at defensive tackle.

  • 49ers' Kevin Givens: Designated to return from IR

    The 49ers designated Givens (ankle) to return from injured reserve Wednesday, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Givens sustained a serious high-ankle sprain in the 49ers' Week 2 win over the Eagles and has been on San Francisco's IR list since then. The 49ers now have a three-week window to activate the defensive tackle to their active roster or he'll stay on the team's injured reserve for the remainder of the year. Expect Kentavius Street to continue to play a key role for the 49ers' defensive line until Givens is activated.

  • 49ers' Kevin Givens: Lands on IR

    The 49ers placed Givens (ankle) on injured reserve Saturday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Givens suffered a high-ankle sprain against the Eagles in Week 2 and will be sidelined for at least three weeks with his move to IR. In his absence, expect Kentavius Street to play a more prominent role along the interior of San Francisco's defensive line while Givens recovers.

  • 49ers' Kevin Givens: Dealing with high-ankle sprain

    Givens suffered a high-ankle sprain Sunday and will be "out for a while," per coach Kyle Shanahan, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

    Givens will miss Sunday's game against the Packers and could be out beyond that considering high-ankle sprains normally take multiple weeks to recover from. Kentavius Street is expected to play a more prominent role along the interior of San Francisco's defensive line while Givens recovers.
