The 49ers opened James’ three-week window to return from the injured reserve recently, so he was expected to officially join the 53-man roster. 

James, 24, is a former seventh-round pick of the 49ers back in 2018. He’s currently in the third year of his four-year, $2.5 million contract.

In 2019, James appeared in all 16 games for the 49ers and caught six passes for 165 yards and a touchdown. He also totaled 428 kick return yards and 264 punt return yards.
