49ers promote RB DuJuan Harris, waive DT Taylor Hart

Oct 22, 2016 at 1:05 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have announced that they have promoted RB DuJuan Harris from the practice squad to the active roster. To make room for Harris, the team waived DT Taylor Hart.

Harris joins Mike Davis and Shaun Draughn as the three running backs that will be active for the 49ers when they play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday at Levi's Stadium. Starting running back Carlos Hyde has been ruled out with a shoulder injury that he suffered against the Buffalo Bills. The injury is not expected to be a long-term one and Hyde said that he expects to return following the bye week.

Hyde has 429 yards on 109 carries and six touchdowns so far this season. He has averaged 3.9 yards per carry.

Harris has been on and off the roster this season, last being re-signed to the practice squad on October 3. He did not make the team's final roster in September and has been released and signed twice since then. Initially, Harris was a late-season addition by the 49ers in 2015. He rushed for 140 yards on 27 carries in the final two games of the season.

The 49ers had claimed Hart off waivers from the Philadelphia Eagles on September 5. He appeared in one game this season and had two tackles.

49ers promote D-lineman to active roster ahead of Saints game

On Friday, the San Francisco 49ers listed defensive lineman Arik Armstead (foot, ankle) as "doubtful" for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel is "questionable" as he deals with a hamstring injury. In preparation for potentially missing Armstead, the 49ers announced that they have promoted defensive lineman T.Y. McGill from the practice squad to the active roster. They could not temporarily elevate him from the practice squad because the team had already done so three times, the maximum for one season. San Francisco waived defensive lineman Kemoko Turay to open the roster spot necessary for promoting McGill. Turay has been inactive for five games this season, including the past three.

It was a strange week for the San Francisco 49ers, who had to work through an unusual schedule that saw them arrive home from their Monday night game in Mexico City in the early morning hours on Tuesday, followed by Thanksgiving on Thursday. Still, they managed to work through it and prepare themselves to play against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, and in the end they came out on top with a 13-0 win. How did the 49ers work through that schedule? We'll look at that in this version of 49ers Notebook, along with some postgame thoughts from head coach Kyle Shanahan on the running back situation, a look at an impressive streak the 49ers snapped on Sunday, and much more.

The 49ers' Defense is Becoming Elite Again: 5 Observations about Saints-49ers

By JD Salazar
Nov 28

This 2022 iteration of the 49ers is endlessly fascinating to watch. One of the best teams in football one week, getting humiliated the next. Back to the future, forward with the past. But as turbulent and ramshackle as it's been, the 49ers are morphing into a team ready to dominate in the playoffs, just as head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have always believed. Here are 5 observations from yesterday's win over the Saints. 1. The Scoreless Streak Extends to 4… In the second half of the past 4 games, the 49ers haven't allowed a point. None. Zip. Zilch. Nada. The Rams, Chargers, Cardinals, and now Saints have all failed to crack the scoreboard once after halftime. While only this last contest has been a pure shutout, that mark remains



Cardinals' DeAndre Hopkins wishes he could box 49ers' Charvarius Ward

There's a player-player rivalry brewing in the NFC West. Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is ready for a bout with San Francisco 49ers cornerback Charvarius Ward, and he's not talking about the Week 18 rematch between the two teams in January. Following this past Monday night's win over the Cardinals in Mexico City, Ward criticized Hopkins following the 49ers' 38-10 victory. "He was getting locked up. He was doing some dirty things," Ward said. "He tried to clip me, he grabbed me by the throat. He grabbed my facemask on one play, so I don't respect his game. That's steroid boy." That last part is a jab regarding
