49ers Make Four Roster Moves

The San Francisco 49ers announced a series of roster moves on Thursday.

The full list includes:

  • 49ers placed RB Austin Walter on the COVID-19 list.
  • 49ers signed TE Chase Harrell to their practice squad.
  • 49ers placed WR Shawn Poindexter on the practice squad injured list.
  • 49ers activated DT Kevin Givens from the exempt list.

The COVID-19 list was created this summer for a player who either tests positive for or who has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons.

Players will remain on the list until they are medically cleared to return.

Walter, 24, wound up going undrafted out of Rice back in 2019. He later signed a rookie contract with the 49ers, but was waived coming out of the preseason.

Walter had a brief stint with the Giants before returning to the 49ers. Since then, he’s been on and off of their roster.

In 2020, Walter has appeared in three games for the 49ers and rushed for three yards on one carry and caught one pass for 27 yards receiving and no touchdowns.
