49ers-Saints injury report: What does Quinton Dial questionable status mean?

New, comments

The 49ers injury report includes Quinton Dial listed as questionable, among others. What does this mean for the defensive line. We take a look at that and the rest of the final 49ers-Saints injury reports.

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

The San Francisco 49ers released their Week 10 final injury report, and there are a handful of players listed as questionable. Patrick Willis, Tramaine Brock, Dan Skuta, Brandon Lloyd and Quinton Dial are all listed as questionable. Justin Smith, Patrick Willis Frank Gore and Ian Williams are all listed as probable.

Dial suffered an eye injury this week, which got him added to the injury report on Thursday. The 49ers released Demarcus Dobbs earlier this week, and if Dial cannot go, that leaves Tony Jerod-Eddie and Tank Carradine on the depth chart. They do have Glenn Dorsey available to be activated between now and Saturday afternoon. Earlier this week, Vic Fangio said Dorsey was 50-50 to be activated for this weekend. The 49ers do not want to rush things, but if it's close, they might decide to activate him as an emergency option.

On the Saints side of things, Khiry Robinson and Pierre Thomas have both been ruled out for this game. Mark Ingram is listed as questionable with a shoulder injury, but all indications are he will play. The Saints have used the ground game a bit more in recent weeks, and he will be the workhorse. Travaris Cadet will be the guy who comes in on some passing situations.
