49ers Don't Make A Move At Kicker, Promote LB Michael Wilhoite To 53-Man Roster
Niners linebacker Michael Wilhoite has been promoted from the practice squad to the team’s 53-man roster, according to his agent, David Canter.
“Congratulations to #TeamDEC client @MichaelWilhoite for being activated to the #49ers game day roster,” Canter said, via Twitter.
In training camp, Wilhoite, 6-foot, 240-pounds, occasionally lined up at fullback and flashed natural pass-catching ability and excellent speed. If he is activated Sunday at St. Louis, he would figure to have a role on special teams.
Wilhoite’s promotion indicates the 49ers believe kicker David Akers (pelvis) will be able to play Sunday. The team tried out veteran kickers Nate Kaeding and Billy Cundiff on Tuesday and was keeping a roster spot open while monitoring Akers’ health.
