49ers open practice window for Richard Sherman, place Kendrick Bourne on COVID-19 list again, announce other roster moves

Nov 9, 2020 at 2:02 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have opened the practice window for cornerback Richard Sherman. The veteran defender landed on injured reserve with a calf strain on September 16, shortly after the team's Week 1 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, and has not played or practiced since.

The 49ers will have 21 days to activate Sherman off of the injured reserve list. The 32-year-old cornerback and 10-year veteran is in his third year with San Francisco and his contract's final year.

The 49ers announced that wide receiver Kendrick Bourne has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list for the second time in less than a week. He landed on the list on November 4, a day before the team's game against the Green Bay Packers, after testing positive for the virus. Bourne, along with three others, was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list two days later.

The three others, tackle Trent Williams and wide receivers Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk, are believed to have landed on the reserve/COVID-19 list last week due to close contact with Bourne. There are no indications that any others will join Bourne this time around.

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 the following roster moves:

  • WR River Cracraft and S Johnathan Cyprien have been promoted to the active roster from the practice squad.
  • WR Chris Finke has been signed to the practice squad. He was released from the practice squad on November 5.

Could Richard Sherman return to the San Francisco 49ers? Head coach Kyle Shanahan isn't eliminating the possibility following the likely loss of starting cornerback Jason Verrett for the season.

"Josh actually told us if we tell him today that he's up, he'll be ready to go. So Josh has been a soldier all week, and I'm real excited to have him here, and I know he was ready this week, so I expect him to be ready next week also." Shanahan
