San Francisco 49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw had successful surgery Thursday to repair his torn Achilles, NFL Network reported.

Greenlaw was injured when he began to run on to the field following a punt during the second quarter of Super Bowl LVIII last Sunday in Las Vegas. The standout defender suffered a full tear and could miss the start of the 2024 season.

He had three tackles in the 49ers’ 25-22 overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Greenlaw, who turns 27 in May, was a fifth-round pick by San Francisco in 2019. He collected 120 tackles along with four passes defended, 1.5 sacks and four quarterback hits this past season (15 games), and he had two interceptions during the team’s three postseason games.
