49ers promote WR Chris Harper to the active roster and make two other moves

Nov 8, 2016 at 9:41 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers have announced the promotion of WR Chris Harper to the active roster. To make room, the team has released WR Keshawn Martin. WR Mose Frazier has been signed to the practice squad to take Harper's place.

Harper was promoted to the active roster just prior to the 49ers' September 12 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams. He was waived the following day and then resigned to the practice squad on September 15.

Martin was signed by the 49ers on September 27 and appeared in one game this season. He only played on special teams during that appearance, returning two kickoffs for 37 yards.

Frazier was one of two receivers that the 49ers worked out recently, per Adam Caplan of ESPN. The other was Antwan Goodley.

Frazier was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Denver Broncos in May and then waived by the team on September 3. He joined the Bronco's practice squad in October but was waived on November 4. Frazier played college football at the University of Memphis.

Per the NFL transaction wire, the San Francisco 49ers have elevated defensive tackle Akeem Spence from the practice squad to the active roster for Sunday's Week 3 matchup against the Denver Broncos. It is a "standard elevation," meaning he will return to the practice squad following the game. San Francisco signed Spence to a one-year deal in August.

The San Francisco 49ers won...and lost on Sunday. The win came by beating the Seattle Seahawks, something the 49ers have not done much of over the last 10 years.

First there was the frustrating loss in Chicago, and now the injury to Lance. And to make matters worse, running back Ty Davis-Price sustained a high-ankle sprain that could sideline him for a few weeks. As you well know, Elijah Mitchell will already miss about two months with an MCL sprain. Injuries are beginning to mount. But fortunately for you, I'm fully healthy and ready to share this week's 49ers mailbag with you. Let's get to it. How many QBs
