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.

Being a 49ers fan in Cowboy Country

After an epic 23-17 win by the San Francisco 49ers, social media has been quiet in my part of the country. That's because San Antonio, Texas is a part of Cowboy Country, and when you support a hated rival like San Francisco, fans will tease you if they lose, especially if they are family. In Texas, the Waiter family are majority Cowboys fans, with a small minority of Buffalo Bills, Philadelphia Eagles, Atlanta Falcons, Indianapolis Colts, and the 49ers fans. Growing up with a family of your dreaded rivals and living in Cowboy Country was an adventure, especially in the 90s, when both teams were considered the kings of the NFL. Last season, when the 49ers lost to the Cowboys, 33-41, the family let me know "We Dem Boys" through text messages and phone calls. It did
