SANTA CLARA -- The 49ers are placing linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong on injured reserve, the 49ers announced on Tuesday morning.

He sustained a pectoral injury on Sunday in Carolina. He underwent an MRI examination on Monday that revealed the likely season-ending damage. Armstrong is expected to undergo surgery.

"It sucks," 49ers defensive coordinator Jim O'Neil said. "But I've said all along we're going to need (Michael) Wilhoite, we're going to need Gerald (Hodges) to help us win football games. And those guys will step up and do a great job in that role."

Hodges started the first two games alongside Navarro Bowman at inside linebacker. Armstrong saw considerable action -- 27 defensive snaps -- before sustaining his injury in the third quarter. Armstrong saw more playing time than Hodges in Week 1.

He recorded his first career interception in the 49ers' Monday night opener against the Los Angeles Rams. Armstrong also had a fumble recovery in the 49ers' loss Sunday to the Carolina Panthers.

“I thought he was playing his butt off," O'Neil said. "He was playing a really good game for us. He made some splash plays in that Carolina game. It’s one of those unfortunate deals that happen in this league. You can’t worry about it. You have to move on.”

The 49ers are expected to announce a corresponding roster move later in the week.

Authorities: Ray-Ray Armstrong’s actions with police dog not malicious
Russia Today
November 19, 2015, 6:01 PM EDT

Just before the Raiders and Steelers faced off at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh earlier this month, Raiders linebacker Ray-Ray Armstrong encountered a police dog.

Police said that Armstrong lifted his shirt, pounded his chest and barked at the dog before telling the dog’s handler to let it off the leash. That request was not granted and the game went off without further incident, but an investigation into Armstrong’s conduct was launched.

It’s a third-degree felony to taunt a police dog in Pennsylvania and the Alleghany County sheriff and prosecutor believe that his actions created an unnecessary security risk. They don’t believe that Armstrong acted maliciously, however, and that doesn’t leave much rationale for prosecuting him on felony charges.

Per the Associated Press, the district attorney plans to speak to authorities in California to determine the best response, although it’s unclear what authority any California agency would have to be involved in a response to something deemed non-malicious in Pittsburgh.

If the Raiders ended up winning the game, I think charges would be filed.

Steelers win = no harm, no foul.

I've just gotten word that Shayne Skov, practice squad inside linebacker, has been moved to the active Niner roster, taking Ray-Ray Armstrong's place. Skov was born in San Francisco, California to Peter Skov, a European American, and Terri Skov, an African American.

His mother was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and as a result the Skov family moved to Guadalajara, Jalisco for its mild climate and affordable healthcare. Shayne and his brother Patrick first began playing football in a team named Carneros de Guadalajara. He is a naturalized citizen of Mexico.

Skov played foot-ball at Stanford under Jim Harbaugh and David Shaw.

He is a bit undersized for NFL linebacker, but plenty of undersized backers over the years have compensated with tenacity, tuffness, agility, speed, and mental acumens.

I've watched Skov in the preseason and in college, and he looks like a football player 2 me.

SANTA CLARA – Linebacker and team leader NaVorro Bowman will undergo season-ending surgery to repair his Achillles tendon, the team announced Monday.

Bowman, 28, sustained the injury Sunday during a non-contact play away from the ball in the third quarter of the 49ers’ 24-17 loss to the Dallas Cowgirls at Levi’s Jean Stadium.

The 49ers in August signed Bowman to a contract extension through the 2022 season. Considered the team's best player, he received a $3.4 million signing bonus and fully guaranteed salaries over the next three seasons of $16.05 million.

Bowman, a four-time first-team All-Pro player, faces a lengthy rehabilitation to get back. In May 2013, then-49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree sustained a torn Achilles but made it back more than six months later for the final five games of the regular season.

Bowman went to the ground in the middle of the third quarter during a play on which Dallas quarterback Dakota Rain Prescott threw an 11-yard pass to Bricey Butler. Bowman was not involved in the play.

The injury is not related to the left knee injury Bowman sustained in January 2014 in the NFC Championship game. Bowman did not play during the 2014 season before returning to action last year.

Last year, Bowman started all 16 games and finished with an NFL-best 154 tackles. This season, he has a team-high 35 tackles, seven more than safety Antoine Bethea.

Bowman will go on injured reserve Tuesday. Outside linebacker Aaron Lynch, whose four-game suspension (for a diluted urine sample) ended Monday, likely will take his roster spot.

Bowman is one of the few remaining links to the 49ers’ recent stellar defenses. Only Ahmad Brooks, Tramaine Brock, Michael Wilhoite and Tony Jerod-Eddie were even on the roster when the 49ers played in the Super Bowl in February 2013. That season, seven 49ers defensive players were named to the Pro Bowl, including Bowman and fellow inside linebacker Patrick Willis.

In 2015, the lone 49ers defender on the Pro Bowl roster was Bowman. After Willis retired last year, Bowman took on a bigger leadership role in the locker room. On a defense teeming with young, mostly unaccomplished players, he is one of the few who commands respect.

“That’s a horrible loss,” Lynch said Monday. “We hope he comes back healthy, takes as long as he needs to take. But he was the leader of our defense. Everybody knows who NaVorro Bowman is. He was always one of the guys on the field that opponents game-planned to.”

and that Electoral College, giving disproportionate power to rural rubes - SO UNHAMILTONIAN!

I remember some present-day Hamiltonians defending the Electoral College, when it seemed like enuff of the lumpen were backing Business as Usual ...
