49ers’ Fangio says NT Glenn Dorsey needs “oomph” to play in 2014



It looks like San Francisco 49ers NT Glenn Dorsey won’t be activated for this week’s game (or at the very best will be listed as questionable) as DC Vic Fangio said, “I think Glenn’s at a point where he’s kind of stuck. I don’t think he’s taken any steps backwards. Nothing negative has happened. He just hasn’t taken that next step yet to where he feels he can go out there and cut it loose yet.”

Fangio did say that Dorsey was medically cleared to play but felt he lack that extra “oomph” that he needs to go out there and play and thus won’t play until that “oomph” returns to form. Dorsey was ‘limited’ in Wednesday’s practice while not being present for the start of today’s practice.
