The San Francisco 49ers announced Tuesday that they’ve waived WR B.J. Johnson from injured reserve.
Johnson, 24, wound up signing a three-year, $1.66 million contract with the 49ers as an undrafted free agent out of Georgia Southern back in May. He was set to make base salaries of $465,000 and $555,000 over the first two years of the contract when the 49ers cut him loose with an injury designation coming out of the preseason.
After clearing waivers, Johnson reverted to the 49ers’ injured reserve list.
During his college career at Georgia Southern, Johnson appeared in 44 games (35 starts) and caught 92 passes for 1,377 yards and six touchdowns.
