49ers 2016 Practice Squad Tracker: Marcus Rush and Kelvin Taylor to sign

Updated Sep 4, 2016 at 7:10 PM


The San Francisco 49ers' 10-player practice squad is now complete. NFL teams were allowed to officially signing players to their practice squads starting at 10 a.m. PT. This is following the 9 a.m. PT deadline to claim a player off of waivers.

Below is a list of players that the 49ers have reportedly signed or will sign.

WR Dres Anderson
Anderson was signed by the 49ers as an undrafted free agent in 2015.

OL Alex Balducci
Originally a nose tackle at Oregon, Balducci was converted to an offensive lineman after being signed as an undrafted free agent by the 49ers.

OL Fahn Cooper
A fifth-round draft pick by the 49ers in the 2016 NFL Draft. Cooper was waived by the team on Saturday.

TE Je'Ron Hamm
Hamm was claimed off waivers by the 49ers in December.

WR Chris Harper
Harper (5-11, 185) was waived by the Patriots on Saturday. He had spend most of the 2015 season (his first in the NFL) on New England's practice squad. While his signing with the 49ers was widely reported, it is not officially known if he is joining the active roster or practice squad. If the practice squad, he will be the only member that was not with the 49ers this offseason.


CB Prince Charles Iworah
A seventh-round draft pick by the 49ers in the 2016 NFL Draft.

OT Norman Price
Offensive lineman signed as an undrafted free agent following the 2016 draft.

LB Marcus Rush
Rush led the league in sacks during preseason and looked like a solid pass rusher. However, his run support looked like it needed to develop.

LB Shayne Skov
Skov appeared in 15 games with the 49ers in 2015. He has spent time on the 49ers and Buccaneers' rosters and practice squads since going undrafted out of Stanford in 2014.

RB Kelvin Taylor
The sixth-round draft pick by the 49ers in May and son of great RB Fred Taylor.

A maximum of four players can have two years of NFL experience. A player is credited with a year of experience after spending six games on the active roster. No player can spend more than three seasons on NFL practice squads.

Players on a practice squad can be claimed by any NFL team, but must be placed on that team's active 53-player roster. The 49ers spent Saturday trimming their roster down to the 53-player limit.

Below is a list of key 49ers that were waived on Saturday and claimed by other teams on Sunday.

WR Devon Cajuste (Packers)
QB Jeff Driskel (Bengals)
OLB Corey Lemonier (Browns)
DL Garrison Smith (Seahawks)
WR Bryce Treggs (Eagles)

Treggs was originally reported as signing with the 49ers, but got claimed by the Eagles.


Key remaining deadlines and dates are listed below.

Sunday, September 4
NFL clubs may begin establishing a practice squad of 10 eliglbe players starting at 10 a.m. PT.

Thursday, September 8
Top 51 rule for all NFL clubs, a rule that states only the top 51 contracts on a team count toward the salary cap, expires at 9 a.m. PT. Of course, this is not as important to teams like the 49ers, who have a big surplus in cap space.

Monday, September 12
Los Angeles Rams at San Francisco 49ers, regular-season opener, Levi's Stadium, 7:20 p.m. PT.

49ers-Saints: Still no sign of Deebo Samuel at practice, Kendrick Bourne returns

By David Bonilla
Nov 13, 2020

Reporters did not see San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel during today's practice, which is the last of this week before the team boards a plane bound for New Orleans. That means the second-year wideout did not practice at all this week, making his availability for Sunday's game against the Saints very unlikely. Samuel is attempting to return from a hamstring injury suffered during the 49ers' Week 7 win over the New England Patriots. General manager John Lynch had hoped Samuel might be able to get onto the practice field today but noted that his availability for this weekend remained a long shot. "I think the final challenge or opportunity for Deebo to show that he can go is out here on Friday,"
