49ers work out several quarterbacks, receivers, and tight ends ahead of Broncos game

Sep 20, 2022 at 11:37 AM--



On Monday, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan admitted that the team would look to work out running backs after losing rookie Ty Davis-Price to a high-ankle sprain for several weeks. The team will also seek another quarterback, with Trey Lance's season over due to a broken ankle.

Those weren't the only injuries from Sunday's 27-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Tight end Tyler Kroft suffered an MCL sprain and will also miss several weeks.

That prompted the 49ers to work out former North Carolina tight end Garrett Walston, who signed with San Francisco as an undrafted free agent in May. Per Pro Football Reference, he recorded 37 catches for 439 yards and four touchdowns over the last two seasons with the Tar Heels.

The 49ers waived Walston on May 17.


The 49ers also worked out wide receiver Ra'Shaun Henry, who was released from the Carolina Panthers practice squad on September 5. Carolina initially signed Henry as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Virginia. Per Pro Football Reference, he appeared in 17 combined games for the Cavaliers in 2020 and 2021, amassing 41 receptions for 809 yards and seven touchdowns.


Update: The NFL transaction wire revealed several other players who the 49ers worked out, including the following five quarterbacks.

  • Kurt Benkert
  • AJ McCarron
  • Garrett Gilbert
  • Mike Glennon
  • Kevin Hogan

San Francisco also worked out the following players.

  • TE Derrick Deese
  • WR Kelvin Harmon
  • WR Jontre Kirklin
  • TE Erik Krommenhoek
  • TE Briley Moore
  • TE Jace Sternberger
  • DB Beau Tanner
