Funchess (undisclosed) was cut from the 49ers' practice squad injured list Monday. Funchess had been sidelined since last Tuesday due to an undisclosed injury, and he'll now be forced to seek out other opportunities. The 27-year-old hasn't appeared in a regular-season game since 2019.
Funchess (undisclosed) was placed on the 49ers' practice squad injured list Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. Funchess joined San Francisco's practice squad last week, and it didn't take long for him to go down with an injury. The 27-year-old dealt with a hamstring injury in training camp with the Packers before being released off injured reserve, though it's unclear if he aggravated that injury or if he's dealing with a new issue.
Funchess was added to the 49ers' practice squad Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports. The 27-year-old has yet to play this season after reaching an injury settlement with the Packers in the preseason. Now healed from a hamstring injury, Funchess will look to provide depth at wide receiver for the 49ers. He has only appeared in one game since 2018, making three catches for 32 yards in a contest with the Colts in 2019. Funchess signed with the Packers in 2020 but sat out that season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Funchess (hamstring) has been released from IR by the Packers with an injury settlement, Field Yates of ESPN reports. It remains to be seen how close Funchess is to being able to re-take the field. However, following this move, the wideout is now free to catch on with another team once he recovers from what ESPN's Rob Demovsky previously described as a lingering hamstring injury.
The Packers placed Funchess (lower body) on injured reserve Wednesday. The timing means he can't return this season unless he agrees to an injury settlement and becomes a free agent again. Even if that happens, Funchess is now 27 years old and has been either injured, ineffective or opted out every season since his 840-yard, eight-touchdown breakout for Carolina back in 2017. It remains to be seen if he's actually dealing with a severe injury or if he just didn't do enough to make the Week 1 roster before suffering a less-serious injury.
