The 49ers have activated outside linebacker Aaron Lynch in time for Thursday night’s game vs. the Cardinals.

Lynch’s four-game suspension ended this past Monday, and he had participated in practice this week on a roster exemption. Lynch has played in 30 games, starting 14, over his first two seasons, and last year shared the team lead with 6.5 sacks.

To create a roster spot, Pro Bowl linebacker Navorro Bowman was placed on injured reserve. Bowman was injured in last Sunday’s loss to the Cowboys, and further testing revealed a torn Achilles tendon.

    Great now we have a pass rusher but no ILB. This roster is like playing Whack A Mole.

    Holding you accountable Jed, FIRE BAALKE.

    Sorry to see Bowman get hurt, but Lynch will provide some juice to the defense. This guy is a beast.

    Niners have such a talented roster. It’s a good thing Bowman got hurt so that they wouldn’t have to cut one of their highly touted ACL picks.

    You guys just need to perfect a better protest.

    Don’t worry things get better.
