Dorsey suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks, according to NFL Network's Rand Getlin.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Assuming the diagnosis is confirmed by the team, Dorsey would presumably be headed to IR, with his looming absence representing a big blow to the 49ers' defensive line.

Dorsey went down early in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks with an apparent knee injury and the team fears it could be an ACL injury, CSN Bay Area reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Dorsey had to be carted off the field, which is an ominous sign for any player who suffers a knee injury. A torn ACL would effectively end his season, and while it sounds like that may be what happened, we will wait for the MRI results Monday. If Dorsey is required to miss time, Arik Armstead should slide into the starting lineup.

Dorsey (biceps) is a candidate to replaced the retired Justin Smith at right defensive end, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Dorsey, the fifth overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft, was largely a disappointment during his five years with the Chiefs. He turned in a solid season as the 49ers' nose tackle in 2013, but then missed all of 2014 due to a torn biceps. Dorsey said he isn't quite fully recovered, but it sounds as if he should be ready for training camp. While the 49ers are without former mainstays Smith and Ray McDonald, they still have plenty of intriguing names along the defensive line, highlighted by Darnell Dockett and 2015 first-round draft pick Arik Armstead. Starter or not, Dorsey won't merit IDP consideration.

Dorsey (arm) was placed on season-ending injured reserve Saturday, Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com reports.

Dorsey spent most of the year on short-term on IR after undergoing biceps surgery in August, and he did not end up playing after being activated late last month. Cornerbak Marcus Cromartie and guard Andrew Tiller were added to the active roster, with NaVorro Bowman (knee) moved to IR along with Dorsey.

Dorsey (biceps) is inactive for Sunday's game against Washington.

After being activated from short-term injured reserve earlier in the week, Dorsey was expected to play Sunday, but instead he'll spend another week in street clothes. The 49ers are a bit thin along the defensive line after the recent loss of Ian Williams to a leg injury.

The 49ers have activated Dorsey (biceps) from IR/designated to return, the Sacramento Bee reports.

The timing of Dorsey's activation coincides with that of fellow nose tackle Ian Williams landing on IR, so Dorsey figures to have a key role in the 49ers' defense out of the gate.

Dorsey (biceps) is expected to be placed on the 49ers' injured reserve/designated to return list on Tuesday, CSN Bay Area reports.

Dorsey was slated to start at nose tackle before tearing his biceps Aug. 1 and is now expected to miss three-and-a-half months following surgery. With the possibility of returning some time after the mid-season mark, Dorsey will be named San Francisco's designated player to return, ruling him out of practice until after Week 6 and out of games until after Week 8. While Dorsey rehabs, Quinton Dial is expected to open the regular season as the 49ers' starter at nose tackle.

Dorsey (biceps) is expected to miss three and a half months after undergoing successful surgery on August 4, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.

The three and a half month timetable is on the short end of the expected recovery from an injury like the one Dorsey sustained, so this is good news for the nose tackle and for the 49ers. Coach Jim Harbaugh is hoping that Dorsey will be ready by late-November to early-December to help out the team down the stretch. He is the leading candidate to be placed in the injured reserve - with a designation to return list. Dorsey recently signed a two-year extension with the 49ers.

Dorsey (biceps) agreed to a two-year contract extension with the 49ers on Tuesday, Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com reports.

Dorsey is uncertain to play in 2014 after tearing his biceps in training camp, but in signing Dorsey to a new deal, they'll be able to ensure he doesn't hit the open market next summer. He'll likely be placed on injured reserve to start the season, but there's a good chance he could be the club's designated player to return if he progresses well in his recovery.
