McDaniel signed with the 49ers on Tuesday to fill the vacancy or Arik Armstead (hand), Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

McDaniel is 32 years old but only has 48 NFL starts on his record. He hasn't played since 2016, when he notched 43 tackles (20 solo) and three pass breakups in 16 games. McDaniel will likely slot into a reserve role, though, and shouldn't be seen as an IDP option at this time.

McDaniel (undisclosed) played 26 snaps in the Saints preseason victory over the Chargers on Sunday, Larry Holder of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

EDGE Analysis

McDaniel missed some time early on in training camp due to an undisclosed injury but his playtime in Sunday's game suggests he's since recovered and shouldn't be hindered by the ailment going forward.

McDaniel (undisclosed) missed his second practice of the week Wednesday, Josh Katzenstein of The Times-Picayune reports.

EDGE Analysis

McDaniel sat out of practice Monday as well due to an undisclosed reason. At this point in time there is nothing to indicate the 12-year-veteran is dealing with anything serious. It is more likely that the Saints are just letting the 32-year-old get back into the swing of things in order to ensure his health entering Week 1.

McDaniel signed a contract with the Saints on Thursday, Marc Sessler of Around the NFL reports.

EDGE Analysis

McDaniel had one of his best seasons in 2016, recording 43 tackles and three passes defensed while with the Seahawks. He'll likely compete with Tyeler Davison and David Onyemata for the top backup spot at defensive tackle, and he could even compete for a starting role if Nick Fairley (heart) is unable to play.

According to head coach Pete Carroll, McDaniel (concussion) will play Saturday against the Falcons, John Boyle of team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

McDaniel did not take part in the wild-card win over the Lions last weekend due to a concussion he suffered in Week 17. Now cleared to play, the veteran will bolster Seattle's defensive line with a return Saturday and will likely resume his role as a starter. Should he have his reps monitored, look for Jarran Reed to see increased action.

McDaniel (concussion) is not expected to play in Sunday's game against Detroit, John Boyle of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

McDaniel is said to have suffered the concussion during last week's win over the 49ers. Although he could return to the field if the Seahawks advance past the wild card round, rookie Jarran Reed is expected to fill the void during his absence.

McDaniel (undisclosed) was a full participant at practice Thursday, Seahawks' digital media reporter John Boyle reports.

EDGE Analysis

McDaniel had been forced to leave last week's loss to the Saints due to an undisclosed injury but he appears fully recovered now and isn't expected to miss more time due to the issue.

Head coach Pete Carroll stated Monday that McDaniel (undisclosed) is expected to be "fine" going forward this week, Curtis Crabtree of the Associated Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

McDaniel did not return to Sunday's loss to the Saints, but appears the Seahawks do not seem concerned about his health at this point in time. However, his status should still be monitored throughout the week. Sealver Siliga would presumably see an increased workload providing depth at defensive tackle if McDaniel is forced to miss any time.

McDaniel collected four tackles (one solo) and a sack in Sunday's 38-10 loss to the Panthers.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran tackle came on strong over the final four weeks, collecting 17 stops (nine solo) and a sack. He acquitted himself well in Akeem Spence's stead over the last three games in particular, and displayed the veteran leadership and savvy that prompted the Bucs to sign him to a one-year free agent deal this past summer after he was a salary cap casualty in Seattle. Now 30 years old, McDaniel is still a solid run stopper with some pass rushing ability from the tackle position, and should certainly be a part of a team's defensive line rotation in 2016.
