The San Francisco 49ers have promoted wide receiver Chad Hall from the practice squad to the active roster.
The team announced the move on Saturday, the day before playing the NFC championship game at Atlanta.
Hall takes the place of kicker Billy Cundiff on the 53-man roster. Cundiff was released Friday.
Hall was originally signed to the 49ers practice squad on Nov. 27 and later released on Dec. 15. He was re-signed to the practice squad two days later.
Hall played seven games for Philadelphia in 2011, catching 14 passes for 135 yards and two touchdowns. He also rushed for 42 yards on 12 carries.

Who will you be rooting for in the NFC Championship Game?
Raj: I will be rooting for San Francisco. I realize that in terms of simplicity, the Falcons would be an "easier" team for the Patriots. However, I think both teams pose a big threat.
