49ers place CB Emmanuel Moseley on the reserve/COVID-19 list, announce other roster moves

Jul 27, 2021 at 2:20 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers announced several roster moves today as the team arrived in Santa Clara for training camp. Tom Pelissero of NFL Network had reported earlier that 15 NFL players have been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list as teams prepare to kick off training camps around the league. Fourteen of those resulted from positive tests.

Among those 15 players is 49ers cornerback Emmanuel Moseley. He is slated to be the starter across from Jason Verrett.


49ers players underwent their first COVID-19 tests this morning. The team is scheduled to hold its first practice tomorrow morning in front of fans.

Moseley being out could be an opportunity for rookies Ambry Thomas and Deommodore Lenoir to get more practice reps.

San Francisco officially announced that running back Jeff Wilson Jr. and safety Tarvarius Moore have been placed on the active/physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) list. The team also waived wide receiver Andy Jones.

Additionally, the 49ers officially announced the signings of defensive linemen Eddie Yarbrough and Anthony Zettel to one-year deals.

The 49ers Communications staff provided the following rundown.



Yarbrough (6-3, 259) originally entered the NFL after signing with the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent on May 3, 2016. Following his release from Denver on September 3, 2016, he later signed with the Buffalo Bills on April 7, 2017, where he appeared in 31 games (six starts) and registered 62 tackles, two passes defensed and 1.0 sack in three years with the team (2017-19). He also started one postseason contest and added five tackles. In 2020, he spent time on the Minnesota Vikings practice squad, later appeared in four games and finished with eight tackles.

A 28-year-old native of Aurora, CO, Yarbrough attended the University of Wyoming where he appeared in 47 games and registered 256 tackles, 21.5 sacks, four passes defensed, four fumble recoveries and four forced fumbles.

Zettel (6-4, 275) was originally drafted by the Detroit Lions in the sixth round (202nd overall) of the 2016 NFL Draft. Throughout his five-year career with the Lions (2016-17), Cleveland Browns (2018), Cincinnati Bengals (2019), 49ers (2019) and New Orleans Saints, he has appeared in 50 games (16 starts) and registered 76 tackles, 7.5 sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery. In 2020, he spent time on the New Orleans Saints practice squad and went on to appear in one game for the team.

A 27-year-old native of West Branch, MI, Zettel attended Penn State University where he appeared in 50 games and registered 110 tackles, 20.0 sacks, 14 passes defensed, three interceptions, two fumble recoveries and two forced fumbles.
