Justin Skule reverts back to 49ers’ injured reserve list after being waived

Jun 14, 2021 at 1:57 PM--


Offensive lineman Justin Skule is back with the San Francisco 49ers after being waived last week. He went unclaimed and reverted back to the team's injured reserve list. Skule will not count against the 90-man (91, really, with Alfredo Gutiérrez not counting) roster but his $894,887 salary will count against the cap.

The team used the vacant roster spot to sign offensive lineman Senio Kelemete to a one-year deal.

Skule suffered a torn ACL during practice on Monday, June 7. Safety Tarvarius Moore was injured during the same session, suffering a torn Achilles. Last week, he underwent successful surgery to repair the damage.

San Francisco made Skule a sixth-round draft pick out of Vanderbilt in 2019. He has appeared in 31 games with 12 starts in his two seasons. The offensive lineman was on track to become the team's top backup to tackles Trent Williams and Mike McGlinchey.

San Francisco will also begin the 2021 season without running back Jeff Wilson Jr., who suffered a torn meniscus in May. He is not expected to return until about mid-season, perhaps as late as November. The running back will likely begin the season on the physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) list.

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Emmanuel Moseley is being joined by two of his teammates on the reserve/COVID-19 list. The Niners announced today that they are placing safety Jaquiski Tartt and wide receiver Jauan Jennings on the list, which means neither will be present for the first training camp practice. 49ers players underwent their first COVID-19 tests yesterday morning, upon reporting to the team's facilities. According to head coach Kyle Shanahan, Tartt was already dealing with a toe injury and was a candidate to land on the active/physical-unable-to-perform (PUP) list. However, the team didn't announce the move. San Francisco made Jennings a seventh-round draft pick last year. He spent his rookie campaign on the practice



49ers receiver feels Brandon Aiyuk is on the cusp of being 'unguardable'

The San Francisco 49ers may have a punishing duo of starting wide receivers heading into 2021 thanks to a couple of draft picks over the past two years that appear ready to pay off. The team selected Deebo Samuel in the second round in 2019 and then Brandon Aiyuk in the first round a year later. Both could be gearing up for breakout NFL campaigns. Aiyuk hauled in 60 receptions for 748 yards and five receiving touchdowns as a rookie. He also carried the football six times for 77 yards and two more scores. His receiving yards total ranks third all-time in franchise history for a rookie while his receptions rank second all-time, and his receiving touchdowns tie for second among first-year players. Only Deebo Samuel and Jerry Rice had more receiving yards as 49ers



49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo comments on possibly being situationally subbed out for Trey Lance

The San Francisco 49ers plan to enter the 2021 season with Jimmy Garoppolo as the starting quarterback. If he can stay healthy and play at the level that his coaches believe he is capable of, he'll have a chance to hold onto the job and delay a transition to Trey Lance. That doesn't mean Lance won't see the field this season. The No. 3 overall draft pick brings a different dynamic to head coach Kyle Shanahan's playbook, which has been evident in training camp. Lance, unlike Garoppolo, has been a part of several designed runs and shown that he can improvise his way out of the pocket to avoid pursuing defenders. Fans can expect to see some in-season plays designed exclusively for Lance, which means taking Garoppolo off the field for those snaps. So how does the
