Michael Wilhoite LB SF 2 Months
Former UDFA LB Michael Wilhoite played with the first team during OTAs.
Wilhoite seems to be the front-runner to replace the injured NaVorro Bowman, but he will have to hold off rookie LB Chris Borland and second-year LB Nick Moody for the job. No matter who starts, the 49ers will likely use a rotation until Bowman returns. Bowman is expected to start the season on the PUP list but should return by mid-season.

49ers promoted LB Michael Wilhoite from their practice squad.
Undrafted out of Washburn, Wilhoite may get a look on special teams if he makes it up on game days. By using the roster spot on Wilhoite instead of a kicker, it's a sign that David Akers (pelvis) is healthy enough to play on Sunday.
