  • 49ers' George Odum: Activated from IR

    The 49ers activated Odum (biceps) from injured reserve Saturday and he's set to play in the team's NFC divisional-round game against the Packers, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Odum was a full participant in Wednesday's and Thursday's practice sessions. He is set to potentially take the field for the first time since Week 12 against the Seahawks, when he sustained a torn biceps injury. Odum figures to slot back into his reserve free safety role behind starter Tashaun Gipson.

  • 49ers' George Odum: Set to be activated Friday

    Odum (biceps) is expected to be activated from injured reserve Friday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

    Odum was designated to return from IR on Jan. 10 and he has logged full practices each of the last two days, setting him up to return for Saturday's matchup with the Packers in the divisional round. The 30-year-old will likely be back in his role as the primary reserve option behind Tashaun Gipson at free safety versus Green Bay.

  • 49ers' George Odum: Practice window officially opens

    The 49ers designated Odum (biceps) to return from injured reserve Wednesday.

    Odum landed on IR at the end of November after tearing his biceps Week 12 against Seattle. With San Francisco holding the NFC's No. 1 seed and thus a bye this week, the veteran safety will work to return in time for next weekend's divisional round. Odum spent most of his time on special teams prior to getting hurt and would presumably return to the same role if he's able to make it back on the field for the playoffs, though his work on defense could grow if Ji'Ayir Brown (knee) and/or Tashaun Gipson (quad) end up missing extended time.

  • 49ers' George Odum: Set to return from IR

    Odum (biceps) is expected to be designated to return from injured reserve by the 49ers this week, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

    Odum has been out since suffering a torn biceps in late November, but he will now have a 21-day window to return to practice and ultimately be added to the team's active roster. If the safety isn't able to be activated, he'll remain on the team's IR through the postseason.

  • 49ers' George Odum: Goes to IR

    The 49ers placed Odum (biceps) on their injured reserve list Monday.

    As expected, Odum will have to miss at least San Francisco's next four games and probably more as he recovers from a torn biceps he sustained Thursday at Seattle. In a corresponding move, rookie fifth-round defensive lineman Robert Beal was activated from the injured reserve list.

  • 49ers' George Odum: Out 2-4 months with torn biceps

    Odum suffered a torn biceps in Thursday's 31-13 win over the Seahawks and is expected to face a recovery timeline of two-to-four months, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

    The extent of Odum's injury was confirmed by an MRI on Friday after he exited Thursday's win. Odum has an outside chance to return during the postseason, but the standout special teams contributor is expected to miss at least the remainder of the regular season.

  • 49ers' George Odum: Questionable to return

    Odum is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Browns due to a thigh injury, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Odum didn't record any counting stats before suffering the injury. He's played primarily on special teams to start the season, so his absence shouldn't have an impact on San Francisco's secondary.
