Game Status:
DT Larry Ogunjobi (Foot) – Questionable

Friday, September 8
DT Cameron Heyward (NIR/Stomach) – Full
DT Larry Ogunjobi (Foot) – Limited

As what happened many times last season, Cam Hayward landed on the injury report Wednesday due to getting time off for rest as a coach’s decision. But instead of getting the entire practice off, Heyward was listed as a limited participant with no injury designation. On Thursday, Heyward did not practice and had the designation of “stomach” added to the reason. The good news is on Friday Heyward returned as a full participant and has no injury status for Sunday’s game.

After missing all of the preseason, defensive lineman Larry Ogunjobi was able to practice in a limited capacity on Wednesday with a foot injury. When asked about Ogunjobi during his press conference on Tuesday, Mike Tomlin was not prepared to say they would follow the same routine with Ogunjobi that they used in 2022. But on Thursday Ogunjobi was once again limited. Friday’s practice brought more of the same for Ogunjobi and he is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game.

As for the 49ers injury report, it came out slightly later in the day due to being a West Coast team but is now below courtesy of
