Draft Scout Quinton Dial News
08/27/16 - NT Quinton Dial suffered a knee injury in Friday's preseason game against the Green Bay Packers. It was being reported initially as a sprained ligament, which would make him doubtful for the Sept. 12 regular-season opener against the Los Angeles Rams. Dial had an MRI on Saturday.
02/28/16 - DT Quinton Dial signed a three-year contract extension with the 49ers through the 2019 season. He would have been entering the final year of his original contract in 2016.
"Throughout his first three seasons in the NFL, Quinton has shown consistent development and has become a key contributor in our defense," said 49ers general manager Trent Baalke. "We have certainly seen his positive impact on the field and in our locker room, but we also recognize the impressive work he does in the community year round. We are pleased to extend the contract of young players like Quinton and are excited to see him continue his career with the 49ers."
Dial (6-5, 318) was originally selected by the 49ers in the fifth round (157th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft. The three-year veteran has played in 32 games (21 starts), registering 132 tackles, 4.5 sacks and two blocked field goals on special teams. In 2015, Dial started a career-high 15 games and also set career highs in tackles (73) and sacks (2.5) as his two blocked field goals made him the first member of the 49ers to do so in the same season since DE Lawrence Pillers in 1983 (two).
12/31/15 - DE Quinton Dial (strained back) sat out the 49ers' practice Wednesday and is questionable for Sunday's game against St. Louis. The injury occurred in last week's loss at Detroit.
12/28/15 - DE Quinton Dial suffered a strained back and played only 30 snaps in Sunday's loss at Detroit. The injury is not considered serious, and Dial is at worst questionable for the club's season finale against St. Louis.
12/14/15 - DE Quinton Dial blocked PK Travis Coons' 42-yard field-goal attempt in Sunday's loss at Cleveland. It was his second block of the year, becoming the first 49er since DE Lawrence Pillers in 1983 to record two blocks in one season.
