The San Francisco 49ers have re-signed quarterback Tom Savage to a one-year deal after waiving him on Thursday as part of several roster moves in preparation for the team's game against the Oakland Raiders.

Savage is back again with the 49ers after clearing waivers, the team announced on Friday afternoon.

The 49ers also officially placed both running back Raheem Mostert and cornerback Emmanuel Moseley on injured reserve. Mostert fractured his right forearm during Thursday night's game while Moseley exited with a dislocated shoulder.

San Francisco initially added Savage to the 53-man roster as a third and emergency quarterback on October 16. It was the first time of the Kyle Shanahan era that the 49ers carried three quarterbacks on the active roster. Savage was waived on October 20 before being re-signed on October 22.

Savage entered the NFL when the Houston Texans made him a fourth-round draft pick out of Pittsburgh in 2014. His best season came last year when he completed 56.1 percent of his passes for 1,412 yards with five touchdowns and six interceptions.

San Francisco 49ers special teams coordinator Richard Hightower may have lost one of his unit's aces with the emergence of running back Raheem Mostert on offense, but he's gained an example for the team's younger players. Mostert joined the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2015. He spent time with six teams before landing with the 49ers the next year. Even then, the running back mostly contributed on special teams. That is, after all, where so many NFL players have to prove themselves upon entering the league. Mostert burst onto the scene last season, and the NFL took notice when he rushed for 220 yards and four touchdowns on 29 carries against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game. "I would feel bad if I didn't say how proud I am of

Fourth-year wideout Kendrick Bourne, however, is scheduled to become a free agent next year after signing a one-year tender in April. The 49ers have had discussions about contract extensions for both players, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic.

There is no doubt that, based on his contributions toward the end of last season and in the playoffs, Raheem Mostert is grossly underpaid. That's why the San Francisco 49ers running back requested a pay raise this offseason, according to Josina Anderson. Mostert accepted a multi-year deal last offseason. Of course, that was long before his 29-carry, 220-yard, and four-touchdown performance against the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game. The running back would like to rework the deal, per the report, as an acknowledgment of his increased
