49ers Harbaugh discusses NT Glenn Dorsey’s return and Chris Borland’s rise



Today, San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh spoke with the 49ers beat writers in regards to wrapping up their two-game road trip while also talking about his star rookie third-round pick ILB Chris Borland. A player that continues to make play-after-play, Harbaugh had high praise for his savvy, young, football player.

Just an hour before Harbaugh’s press conference, I talked about Borland’s “knack” for the football as I tweeted:

Harbaugh then echoed that same assessment in his presser today as he said:

However, with Borland getting his fair share of snaps, I wanted to ask about 49ers starting NT Glenn Dorsey and if he’ll be able to play this season as the 21-day window comes to a close. I asked Harbaugh, “What’s the status on NT Glenn Dorsey, is he going to remain on IR or are you guys going to activate him?” And Harbaugh said:

With the 49ers activating Dorsey, the team placed NT Ian Williams on IR.
