49ers open practice windows for Jordan Reed, Tevin Coleman, K’Waun Williams, announce other roster moves

Oct 28, 2020 at 10:22 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers announced today that the team has opened the practice windows for three players on injured reserve. They are tight end Jordan Reed, running back Tevin Coleman, and cornerback K'Waun Williams.

Reed would appear to be ahead of schedule on his recovery from an MCL sprain. The injury occurred less than five weeks ago during a Week 3 win over the New York Giants. Head coach Kyle Shanahan initially estimated that the tight end would require six to eight weeks to recover.

Coleman is returning from a knee injury sustained during a Week 2 matchup against the New York Jets, and Williams suffered an ACL sprain during a Week 4 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

The 49ers also announced the following roster moves:

  • DL Alex Barrett, WR Chris Finke, and CB Parnell Motley have been signed to the practice squad.
  • DL Josiah Coatney has been released from the practice squad.

The 49ers Communication staff provided the following rundown.

NOTE: The 49ers initially reported in the copy below that Finke is 34 years old, which is incorrect. He is 24 years old. The copy has been altered from the original sent out by the team to reflect the correction.

Barrett (6-2, 250) was promoted to the active roster from team's practice squad on October 7, 2020 where he appeared in three games and registered two tackles. He was waived by the team on October 26.

Finke (5-9, 186) originally entered the NFL after signing with San Francisco as an undrafted free agent on April 28, 2020. He was later waived by the team on July 28.

A 24-year-old native of Dayton, OH, Finke attended the University of Notre Dame (2015-19) where he appeared in 49 games (10 starts) and registered 106 receptions for 1,251 yards and eight touchdowns to go along with 63 punt returns for 532 yards on special teams. In 2019, he played in all 13 games (nine starts) and registered 31 receptions for 456 yards and four touchdowns.

Motley (6-0, 180) was originally claimed off waivers by the 49ers from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on October 13, 2020. He was inactive for the team's Week 7 game at New England and waived by the team on October 26.

Coatney (6-4, 325) was originally signed to the team's practice squad on October 7, 2020.

Since the beginning of the offseason, San Francisco 49ers running back Jordan Mason has made the most of his opportunities, earning praise for his hard-nosed, physical running style that embodied an NFL player. However, due to a variety of circumstances, Mason has yet to see significant NFL action. After Elijah Mitchell suffered a sprained MCL in Week 1, Mason could've seen opportunities behind Jeff Wilson in San Francisco's running back rotation, given his performance in the offseason and style of play. But, the 49ers opted for a different direction, utilizing Wilson as a bell-cow back, significantly decreasing the team's efficiency on the ground, before involving veteran Tevin Coleman, who had a short stint on the active
