Found September 03, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
The San Francisco 49ers’ have signed seven players to their practice squad as of Monday evening, according to David Fucillo of Niners Nation. None of the players signed so far would register as eyebrow-raising moves by any means. It seems San Francisco would rather save its drama for snatching players off other practice squads like we saw on Monday when they signed wide receiver Chris Harper from the division-rival Seahawks. Harper was a fourth-round draft pick by Seattle this offseason and a player they had hoped to develop through their own scout-team. However—as head coach Jim Harbaugh stated earlier in the week—they are the 49ers’, they can do what they want.   As the final cuts became official around the league, Jim Harbaugh and his staff began signing players to the practice squad. So far, they have filled seven of the possible eight practice squad roster spots. The players that compile the list so far are: DB- Darryl Morris and Michael Thomas OL- Carter Bykowski and Patrick Omameh WR- Chuck Jacobs RB- Jewel Hampton DT- Mike Purcell Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
