49ers promote Jarryd Hayne to the active roster; Alex Boone placed on IR

Dec 26, 2015 at 1:03 PM--


On Saturday, the San Francisco 49ers promoted RB Jarryd Hayne from the practice squad to the active roster. The team had until 1 PM (PT) to activate him in time to play on Sunday against the Lions in Detroit.


It was reported earlier today that Hayne was traveling with the team to Detroit, giving a strong indication that he would be activated to the 53-man roster.

To make room for Hayne, the 49ers placed LG Alex Boone on inured reserve, ending his season. Boone suffered a sprained MCL in a game against the Cleveland Browns. He is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent following the season.

Hayne, a rookie, was on the active roster for six games before being deactivated prior to the team's first game against the Seattle Seahawks. He was waived the following week and when no other team claimed him, was signed to the 49ers practice squad.

Kendall Gaskins and the newly acquired DuJuan Harris were the only healthy running backs on the 53-man roster. RB Shaun Draughn (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday.

Hayne has 25 yards rushing on eight carries this season and has averaged 9.5 yards on punt returns. Hayne was a big Australian media storyline during preseason. Last year, he left a stellar career in the National Rugby League to chase his dream of playing in the NFL.

Pro Football Focus recently completed its positional-by-position rankings for all 32 NFL teams. Now, it's time for analyst Anthony Treash to combine everything and determine the league's best overall rosters, ranking each from best to worst. "The list was heavily influenced by the two-year PFF WAR (wins above replacement) of the players who are currently on each roster, but it also had some subjective projection involved for those younger, emerging talents," Treash explained. Obviously, things may change slightly in about a week, but for now, this is where each squad stands in Pro Football Focus' eyes as the league heads into the 2021 NFL

Jeremiah doesn't see the 49ers drafting Mac Jones as an 'arrogant' move

Former NFL scout John Middlekauff recently described the possibility of the San Francisco 49ers making Mac Jones of Alabama the No. 3 overall pick as "arrogant." Jones appears to fit the mold of what head coach Kyle Shanahan has sought in the past — a smart and accurate passer who can manage his offense well, à la Kirk Cousins, Matt Ryan, and Jimmy Garoppolo. It's hard for many fans to look past the possibility of passing on Justin Fields of Ohio State or Trey Lance of North Dakota State, though. Many among the media feel the two are better long-term prospects, too. Both are seen as more athletic prospects with potentially higher upsides. Not only could they turn out to be great in the pocket, but their athleticism could provide Shanahan with an added dimension



Analyst on 49ers' draft options: 'John Lynch wants Trey Lance'

Analyst and writer Michael Detillier, who contributes to several media outlets, joined the BetQL Daily podcast on Thursday and discussed the San Francisco 49ers' upcoming quarterback decision in next week's draft. Detillier recalls the day the team moved up nine spots from No. 12 overall to get into a position to acquire one of the top young talents. He was getting ready to publish his mock draft and needed to make some changes as it was headed to print due to the trade. While the national narrative quickly linked Mac Jones of Alabama to the 49ers, Detillier heard that general manager John Lynch had his sights set on a different prospect. Whether or not head coach Kyle Shanahan felt the same way is unknown. "When I went to print was the day of the
