He's injured and wasn't going to play the final preseason game, so no point in keeping him.
Yeah, didn't develop as some thouht given all the 1on1 attention he was getting. He did get better and better though. PS?

I'm thinking he may end up on the PS, depends on what Tomsula thinks though, this may be his final goodbye.

Relax people - I'm going on IR
They gave him a chance to try out for the NFL. There wasn't much to him football wise at this point. Maybe some team will take the time to develop him, if he has the love and dedication for the game to go through the wear on body of an NFL season. The Niners are in a SB run this season. Roster spot is at a premium. Even at practice squad. I don't think they are interested in a long term project like Okyoe.

They wouldn't have signed him if they weren't interested in long term projects.

Probably the best way to keep him without having to put him on the PS or keep him on the 53 man.
if you are on the IR you are still allowed to practice right?
no one currs
