SALT LAKE CITY – Former BYU Cougars and current San Francisco 49ers linebacker Fred Warner forced a fumble during a postseason game against the Green Bay Packers.

After the play, Warner had four total tackles, three solo tackles, one tackle for loss, and a forced fumble.

This season, the fourth-year linebackerĀ helped the 49ers to a 10-7 record and a playoff berth.

He finished the regular season with 137 total tackles, 79 solo tackles, 0.5 sacks, one forced fumble, three fumble recoveries, and four pass breakups.
