The San Francisco 49ers are looking to bolster their safety depth following injuries to Talanoa Hufanga and George Odum. Hufanga's season came to an end in Week 11 after the starter suffered a torn ACL, leading to rookie Ji'Ayir Brown taking his place in the lineup.

Odum sustained a torn biceps in last week's victory over the Seattle Seahawks. While his return for the playoffs is possible, the injuries prompted the 49ers to explore additional options.

According to NFL Network and confirmed by NBC Sports Bay Area, the team plans to sign veteran Erik Harris to the practice squad.

Harris, undrafted in 2012, spent three seasons with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (2013-15) before joining the New Orleans Saints in 2016. He then played four seasons with the Oakland/Las Vegas Raiders (2017–20) and two seasons with the Atlanta Falcons (2021–22).

Over his seven NFL seasons, Harris has appeared in 91 games, starting 43. He has registered 267 tackles, seven tackles for a loss, four quarterback hits, five interceptions, two touchdowns, 28 passes defensed, 0.5 sacks, and a forced fumble during his NFL career.

The San Francisco 49ers defense was smothering the Kansas City Chiefs offense in Super Bowl LVIII. Chiefs star QB Patrick Mahomes was struggling, and tight end Travis Kelce was visibly frustrated, even appearing to push head coach Andy Reid on the sideline. It looked as if the 49ers might finally win that elusive sixth Super Bowl. And then it happened. While running back onto the field, linebacker Dre Greenlaw slipped and tore his Achilles. And while one can argue whether or not that injury cost the 49ers the Super Bowl, it certainly had a major impact, as Kelce, now mostly being guarded by Oren Burks, became a major player in Kansas City's victory. Greenlaw's injury, without question, hurt the 49ers bid to win Super Bowl LVIII. But how will the injury affect the

It's been a quiet couple of weeks for the San Francisco 49ers. Other than firing defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, and that little Super Bowl thing, there hasn't been much going on.

ESPN analyst Mel Kiper unveiled his latest mock draft, projecting the 32 selections of the first round. For the first time since 2021, the San Francisco 49ers own a first-round selection and could use the pick to bolster the offensive line or the defensive backfield.

Kiper's pick for San Francisco is Chop Robinson of Penn State. Kiper wrote, "It has to be offensive line or edge rusher for the 49ers, right? They need to find
