The San Francisco 49ers have placed newly signed practice squad wide receiver Devin Funchess on injured reserve, per the NFL transaction wire and first reported by NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

Funchess has not appeared in an NFL game since breaking his collarbone in Week 1 of the 2019 season while with the Colts. While with the Packers last season, he opted out due to COVID-19 concerns.

The NFL transaction wire also included the following 49ers-related moves.

  • Safety Kai Nacua was restored to the practice squad from injured reserve
  • The Los Angeles Chargers signed CB Davontae Harris from the 49ers practice squad

The 49ers placed Nacua on injured reserve on November 2.
