Watson plays mainly in a reserve role, and it's unlikely he's called upon on defense Sunday. The eight-year linebacker has just four tackles (two solo) this season.

Watson (groin) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

Watson, who missed last week's loss to the Colts, was limited at practice throughout the week. If the 29-year-old is unable to suit up Sunday, look for Pita Taumoepenu and Ray-Ray Armstrong to see some increased reps providing depth at linebacker.

Watson (groin) is listed as out for the 49ers' game Sunday against the Colts.

EDGE Analysis

Watson wasn't able to practice at all this week, so he'll be sidelined for the first time all season after injuring his groin in last Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. His absence could pave the way for defensive end Pita Taumoepenu to be made active this week in what would be the rookie's NFL debut.

An MRI on Watson's injured groin came back negative Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It doesn't look like the groin issue is much more than a minor concern for Watson, who could have a shot at suiting up for Sunday's contest against the Colts if he's able to practice at some point this week. Watson has seen most of his action on special teams through the 49ers' first four games, logging four total tackles.

Watson signed a three-year contract with the 49ers on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Watson, who's struggled to stay healthy the past few years, strung together a full, 16-game season with the Broncos in 2016 and wound up leading the team with 11 special teams tackles. While he could theoretically carve out a rotational role at linebacker this summer, look for him to do most of his work for the Niners on special teams.

Watson (elbow) is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals.

EDGE Analysis

Watson will serve as a reserve linebacker for Sunday's matchup so he doesn't figure to see the field too often, although he could play a role in Denver's special teams unit.

Watson registered four tackles and 2.5 sacks in Saturday's preseason win over the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

The former journeyman middle linebacker has found his calling on the outside this preseason, racking up four sacks and a safety this preseason. Outside rusher is arguably Denver's deepest position with Von Miller, DeMarcus Ware, Shaq Barrett and Shane Ray all locks to make the team. Watson is likely in their company. The Broncos carried five outside linebackers last season and the team could use additional depth in an effort to keep Ware fresh during the season.
