49ers place RB Jeff Wilson on reserve/COVID list, cut two others

Jul 30, 2020 at 1:59 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have announced that running back Jeff Wilson Jr. has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. He joins wide receiver Richie James Jr., who was placed on the list on Monday.

Wilson was among the players who reported for COVID-19 testing on Tuesday.

The reserve/COVID-19 list has been created for a player who either tests positive for COVID-19 or has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons. If a player falls into either of these categories, his club is required to immediately place the player on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Clubs are not permitted to comment on a player's medical status other than referring to the roster status and may not disclose whether the player is in quarantine or is positive for COVID-19.

San Francisco also announced two other moves. The team released offensive lineman Leonard Wester and waived defensive lineman Alex Barrett.

The moves get the 49ers below the 80-man roster requirement that must be met before August 16.

The San Francisco 49ers announced several roster moves on Tuesday. Running back Jeff Wilson Jr. and wide receiver Richie James Jr. have been activated off of the reserve/COVID-19 list. That means the team no longer has any players on the list. James, however, is being moved to the active/non-football-injury list due to the broken wrist he suffered in June. The 49ers waived safety D.J. Reed with an injury designation. He will revert to NFI reserve once he clears waivers. Reed suffered a torn pectoral muscle in June and will miss the season. "That's a tough one for us," general manager John Lynch told reporters on Monday.

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch announced a few roster moves before a Monday afternoon press conference conducted via Zoom. One was the decision to place safety D.J. Reed on the reserve/non-football injury list, effectively ending his season. The versatile defensive back suffered a torn pectoral muscle in June. "That's a tough one for us," Lynch told reporters. "The earliest we might have had D.J. back was early November. It's a four-to-six-month injury, so that's been an active conversation Kyle and myself and the medical folks have been having. Ultimately, too difficult to keep a roster spot for something that may go into December. So we made that

COVID-19 could alter 49ers' East Coast travel plans

The San Francisco 49ers received a gift from NFL schedule makers when their two East Coast road games — against the New York Jets and Giants — were scheduled in during back-to-back weeks in September. The team planned to make a 10-day trip out of it, avoiding a rigorous back-and-forth travel plan from coast to coast, much as it did last year between road matchups against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Cincinnati Bengals to open the season. "Just being on the West Coast, and the time change, how it is a little tough for your body to adjust to those 10 a.m. (Pacific time, 1:00 p.m. Eastern) kickoffs if you're not used to it," head coach Kyle Shanahan explained last
