San Francisco 49ers Defensive End Likely To Play This Week

The last thing this San Francisco 49ers team needed ahead of their pivotal NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles was off-field drama, but unfortunately, it appears they've got some to deal with now.

Over the weekend, defensive end Charles Omenihu was arrested on charges of domestic violence, but with the timing, the team is apparently ready to led the legal process play out, while still allowing their young defensive weapon play, as he is expected to suit up this weekend.

In his second season with the 49ers, Omenihu recorded 4.5 sacks, and while it's the defence around him that's been starring, he's played a solid role too, and with confidence in the matter, as Kyle Shanahan and the franchise are preparing to led the process play out, it makes sense that he'll continue to stay on the field.
