Linebacker Dre Greenlaw of the San Francisco 49ers is already making progress toward recovery after suffering a major injury on Sunday during Super Bowl LVIII.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Greenlaw’s torn Achilles tendon, which he suffered when entering the field from the sideline, was successfully repaired during surgery on Thursday. It is expected that he will fully heal from the wound.

When Greenlaw joined San Francisco’s defense following a punt return in the second quarter of Sunday’s championship game, an awful thing occurred.

This week, the NFL highlighted the effects of Greenlaw’s injury with responses from 49ers and Chiefs players in a Super Bowl edition of Inside the NFL:

San Francisco’s 25-22 overtime loss to Kansas City, the team’s second Super Bowl loss to the Chiefs in the previous five years, added to the impact of Greenlaw’s injury.

Prominent 49ers linebacker Fred Warner informed reporters earlier this week that he had spoken with Greenlaw since Sunday and that he was aware of his teammate’s resolve to get well quickly.

He is obviously disappointed, but he is not letting it get to him. In order to start his rehabilitation and get back to activity, he is excited to have surgery, according to Warner. “I have no doubt that he’ll return even more formidable. He has the correct mindset, so he will definitely recover.

Over the previous several seasons, Greenlaw has established himself as a vital defensive asset for San Francisco after being selected in the fifth round of the 2019 draft. With 120 total tackles in 2023, he tied for second place on the team with four passes defended and 1.5 sacks.

Undoubtedly, the 49ers are looking for a speedy return from Greenlaw to the field in order to pursue another Super Bowl run in the following season.
