The #49ers have promoted DB Tyvis Powell from the practice squad.

Powell, 24, signed on with the Seahawks as an undrafted free agent out of Ohio State in 2016. He was in the first year of a three-year, $1.62 million contract when Seattle decided to waive him.
The Browns later claimed him off of waivers but cut him loose soon after. Powell was once again claimed off of waivers by the Colts but was, unfortunately, waived from injured reserve with a settlement. He bounced on and off the Seahawks’ practice squad until signing with the 49ers’ practice squad in November of last year.
In 2017, Powell appeared in three games for the 49ers and recorded five total tackles and no interceptions.
