The 49ers also activated RB Austin Walter and practice squad FB Josh Hokit from the COVID-19 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.

Grasu, 29, is a former third-round pick of the Bears back in 2015. He was in the final year of his four-year, $3.44 million contract that included $814,855 guaranteed and set to make a base salary of $705,000 for the 2018 season when the Bears waived him coming out of the preseason.

Grasu had a brief stint with the Ravens in 2018 before signing on with the Dolphins in December. He was waived a few weeks later and eventually signed by the Titans.
