NFL Injury Report:
Francisco 49ers’ defensive end Lawrence Okoye was placed on the injured/waived
list today after suffering a knee injury in their preseason game against the
Minnesota Vikings, according to NFL.com's Dan Hanzus. Okoye was attempting to
make the transition from 2012 Olympic athlete to 2013 NFL football player this
offseason. The massive defensive lineman from Great Britain was a casualty of
San Francisco’s cut down to 75 players. If he clears waivers, he will be placed
on Injured Reserve. There is currently no timetable for his rehabilitation.
many heads this offseason with his eye-popping strength and unbelievable
athleticism. It is thought that his best position in the NFL would be defensive
end, though that is not the only spot he will be considered for. It is quite
likely he will end up on somebody’s practice squad as he attempts to develop
his talent and perfect his technique.
additional news, San Francisco also placed defensive tackles Quinton Dial and
Tank Carradine on the non-football injury list along with offensive lineman
Luke Marquardt, running back Marcus Lattimore, and newly acquired cornerback
Eric Wright. Wide receivers Michael Crabtree and Mario Manningham will also
start the season on the reserve/PUP list for the 49ers’.
