  • 49ers' Charles Omenihu: Cleared for Sunday

    Omenihu (oblique) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Eagles, Eric Williams of FoxSports.com reports.

    Omenihu played 16 snaps in the 49ers' divisional-round win over Dallas but picked up an oblique injury during the contest that caused him to be a limited participant during Wednesday's and Thursday's practices. However, he logged a full session Friday and has been cleared for game action. The 49ers said Omenihu, who was arrested Monday at his home in San Jose on suspicion of misdemeanor domestic violence, has stayed with the team since posting bail and will be available as long as the legal process plays out, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

  • 49ers' Charles Omenihu: Arrested Monday

    Omenihu (oblique) was arrested Monday at his home in San Jose on suspicion of misdemeanor domestic violence, Robert Salonga of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

  • 49ers' Charles Omenihu: Sent to San Francisco

    The Texans traded Omenihu to the 49ers for a future late-round pick Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Despite playing 198 defensive snaps across six appearances for the Texans this season, Omenihu has only produced 11 tackles. The former fifth-round pick registered three sacks his rookie season and four sacks during the 2020 campaign, but he hasn't been able to record a sack this year. He will look for a fresh start with the 49ers, who are currently dealing with multiple injuries to their front seven.

  • Texans' Charles Omenihu: Helps himself preseason Week 2

    Omenihu recorded two sacks and recovered a fumble in Saturday's 20-14 win over the Cowboys in preseason Week 2, Aaron Reiss of The Athletic reports.

    Omenihu was in position on the Cowboys' first series, falling on a fumble created by Jacob Martin which led to Houston's only offensive touchdown. He later beat a tight end off the edge for a sack, then logged another after a stunt for inside rush. With positions up for grabs along Houston's new four-man front, Omenihu is a riser heading into the final preseason game Saturday against the Buccaneers. Omenihu has been playing end on early downs, then moving inside on obvious passing downs to get quicker bodies on the edge.
