  • 49ers' Kevin Givens: Staying put in San Fran

    The 49ers signed Givens to a one-year contract extension Monday.

    Givens is now set for his fifth consecutive campaign with the 49ers after he reached a new deal with the team Monday. The 285-pounder appeared in 16 games this past season as a rotational defensive lineman and posted career highs in both tackles (24) and sacks (two).

  • 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: Expected back for playoffs

    Givens (knee) is expected to return for Saturday's wild-card round game against the Seahawks, Josh Dubow of The Associated Press reports.

    Givens hasn't played since spraining his MCL on Dec. 11, but the defensive tackle is expected to make his return for the 49ers' postseason opener. Givens totaled 20 tackles (11 solo) and two sacks across 13 appearances (11 starts) in the regular season.

  • 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 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.
