49ers’ activate NT Glenn Dorsey, place NT Ian Williams on season-ending IR



Just moments after asking 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh if NT Glenn Dorsey would be activated to the 53-man roster, it came to fruition as the team activated Dorsey while sending NT Ian Williams (fractured left fibula) to season-ending IR. Harbaugh told me in today’s presser when I asked if Dorsey would be activated, “We’ll look to activate him,” Harbaugh said. And that’s exactly what happened.

With the 49ers continuing to get healthy bodies back in the mix, it comes at the right time as they now have two defensive starters back from 2013 in OLB Aldon Smith and now Dorsey.
