49ers claim RB Trenton Cannon off waivers, per report

The San Francisco 49ers have claimed running back Trenton Cannon off waivers, per ESPN's Field Yates.


The New York Jets made Cannon (5-11, 185) a sixth-round selection out of Virginia State in 2018. He signed with Baltimore on September 8 and carried the football two times for five yards during the Ravens' Week 1 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. Baltimore released Cannon on Tuesday.

Cannon, 27, has appeared in 35 games and registered 50 carries for 151 yards and one touchdown to go along with 20 receptions for 160 yards throughout his four-year career with the Jets (2018-19), Carolina Panthers (2020), and Ravens (2021).

Cannon was among the incoming rookies to meet with the 49ers leading to the 2018 NFL Draft.

The addition comes after a Week 1 knee injury to running back Raheem Mostert, who will have season-ending surgery. Cannon will join a running back group that includes JaMycal Hasty, rookies Trey Sermon and Elijah Mitchell, and practice squad player Kerryon Johnson.

John Lynch optimistic that 3 games off will give 49ers a George Kittle 'at full strength'

San Francisco 49ers general manger John Lynch joined KNBR today and provided a bit of an update on the team's injured tight end, George Kittle. There had been hope that Kittle might be available for this past weekend's game against the Arizona Cardinals. However, the 49ers ended up putting their star tight end on injured reserve the day before kickoff. That means Kittle will have to miss three games. The first was this past Sunday's game. He will also have to sit out the matchups against the Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Bears. Kittle will be eligible to return on November 7 when the 49ers host the Arizona Cardinals. While there is always the possibility of a setback, Lynch feels optimistic that Kittle will be back for that Week 9 contest. "That was

Sunday night will be a reunion for many San Francisco 49ers players. All-Pro defensive tackle DeForest Buckner will return to Levi's Stadium for the first time since being traded to the Indianapolis Colts in 2020. "He was the heart and soul when he was here, man," safety Jimmie Ward said of Buckner after today's practice. "I wasn't happy about [the trade], but I understand the business side. I'm pretty sure you all knew something was going to happen, just like I did. I just didn't know what was going to happen. "When that happened, like I said, it was bittersweet. We ended up getting [Javon] Kinlaw, and we ended up getting Brandon Aiyuk. But we lost a leader, especially a leader on the defense. Really, a leader on this team, in this building. But he's

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 5 contest against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Today's practice report looked very much like what head coach Kyle Shanahan previewed beforehand. There was no Jimmy Garoppolo, as the quarterback continues to recover from a calf injury. "I mean, it could go up to game time," Garoppolo said before practice about Sunday's game status. "We've done it before up to game time. And it's really just about getting the mental reps while I can out there today, see where I'm at tomorrow and everything." There was no Trent Williams, who, like Garoppolo, was injured this past weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. San Francisco continues to be cautious
