Dorsey was promoted to the starting lineup Sunday, recording six tackles (four solo) in a loss to the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

The 49ers demoted Quinton Dial and promoted Dorsey to starting nose tackle. The veteran lineman had a good showing, clogging the middle of the line and racking up six tackles, which was good for second amongst all San Francisco defenders. Linemen in a 3-4 defense do not usually put up strong IDP performances, but Dorsey could be a cheap source of tackles given how often opposing offenses run the ball against the 49ers' porous unit.

Dorsey contributed a season-high six tackles (five solo) in Sunday's loss to the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Dorsey stepped in for Arik Armstead (shoulder) -- who left the game in the first quarter -- and turned in a solid performance. He has never been much of a pass rusher, but he can rack up a handful of tackles from the defensive end position. Armstead hasn't been ruled out of next week's tilt against the Cardinals, but the 49ers may want to be cautious with their young lineman as he has had shoulder problems all season. If he can't go, Dorsey would likely start Sunday.

Dorsey (knee) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Buccaneers.

EDGE Analysis

Dorsey has been hindered by a knee injury since the preseason that has caused him to miss Week 5 and now Week 7. With Dorsey out, look for starting nose tackle Mike Purcell to see even more action than usual.

Dorsey (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Bills.

EDGE Analysis

Dorsey sat out last Thursday's game and the long week wasn't enough for him to get back to full health, though he did practice in a limited fashion. If he's held out once again look for Mike Purcell to handle the bulk of the nose tackle reps once again.

Dorsey has been listed as inactive for Thursday's game due to a knee injury.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear what the specifics of Dorsey's knee injury are but it's severe enough to hold him out. Mike Purcell will be the team's only true nose tackle, though Tony Jerod-Eddie and Ronald Blair could rotate in for a couple reps.

Dorsey (knee) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice, CSNBayArea.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dorsey was inactive Monday night against the Rams as he progresses in his recovery from offseason knee surgery. Head coach Chip Kelly said Dorsey was thought to have had a chance at playing, though, and thus may have a chance to suit up Week 2. However, he should be considered questionable until further notice.

Dorsey (knee) is questionable for Monday's matchup with Washington, Eric Branch of sfgate.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

After sitting out most of this week, Dorsey returned to practice in a limited fashion Friday. There is reason to believe that he won't play considering his status this week, but given the extra day of rest, San Francisco may be inclined to see how the big man feels early Monday. Regardless, Dorsey's status will likely remain murky until a few hours before kickoff.
