He would be guaranteed $ 11.seven million for subsequent time if the 49ers retain him on the roster past that day.
Dorsey most likely will not be totally recovered for the begin of the 2016 period.

–Operating again Carlos Hyde (foot) did not apply Wednesday and is uncertain for Sunday’s recreation from the Arizona Cardinals. Hyde has not performed since the Oct. 22.

–Defensive Glenn Dorsey underwent surgery to mend a torn ACL in his proper knee Tuesday. The injury occurred Sunday from the Seattle Seahawks. Dorsey was placed on season-ending injured reserve Wednesday following obtaining began all 10 online games this time, recording 36 tackles and a single sack. He probably will not be completely ready for the begin of the 2016 time.
