The 49ers made several moves to trim the roster to 75 players Monday. The team waived quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson, safety D.J. Campbell, tight end Kevin Greene, running back Jewel Hampton, punt Colton Schmidt, linebacker Kion Wilson and wide receiver Devon Wylie, while also releasing wide receiver David Reed. The team placed running back Marcus Lattimore, fullback Trey Millard, cornerback Keith Reaser and guard Brandon Thomas on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury List and linebacker NaVorro Bowman, tight end Garrett Celek and defensive tackle Kaleb Ramsey were placed on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform List. Linebacker Blake Costanzo was released from the Injured Reserve list.
The 49ers placed six players on the non-football injury list, including second-year running back Marcus Lattimore (knee). Also on the list are receiver Bruce Ellington, center Marcus Martin, fullback Trey Millard, cornerback Keith Reaser and guard Brandon Thomas. In addition, the team placed nose tackle Ian Williams (ankle) on the PUP list along with linebacker Aaron Lynch (hamstring) and defensive lineman Kaleb Ramsey. All the players can come off the list and start practicing at any time.
The 49ers placed six players on the non-football injury list Thursday: running back Marcus Lattimore, wide receiver Bruce Ellington, center Marcus Martin, fullback Trey Millard, cornerback Keith Reaser and guard Brandon Thomas, reports the Sacramento Bee. The NFI list is for players who suffered injuries away from the 49ers facility. Millard, Reaser and Thomas injured knees in college and are expected to miss the season. Lattimore is still rehabilitating from a knee injury while at South Carolina in 2012. Ellington and Martin both practiced during the 49ers' spring sessions; their injuries are not believed to be serious.Two draft picks, outside linebacker Aaron Lynch and defensive end Kaleb Ramsey, were placed on the physically-unable-to-perform list. That means they were injured this spring. Both are eligible to start the season on the PUP list, where they would not count against the team's 53-man roster.
The 49ers signed two rookies -- linebacker Aaron Lynch and defensive tackle Kaleb Ramsey -- to four-year contracts on Tuesday, the team announced. Lynch could end up being a hybrid player, lining up at both linebacker and defensive end on passing downs. Ramsey's role will be more defined as a player on the line of scrimmage.
With the 243rd pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the San Francisco 49ers selected defensive tackle Kaleb Ramsey from Boston College. The 6-foot-3, 293-pound defensive lineman started eight of 10 games in 2013, amassing 28 tackles, including two sacks and four tackles for a loss.
