  • The 49ers cut Nelson (knee) with an injury settlement Sunday, Kyle Madson of USA Today reports. Nelson linked up with the 49ers mid-August, but he quickly suffered a knee injury that carried a recovery timetable between two weeks and a month. The team placed him on IR, but now having received an injury settlement, the speedy wideout will be free to sign with another organization as soon as he's fully healthy.

  • Nelson (knee) was placed on injured reserve Sunday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Nelson was expected to miss somewhere between two weeks and a month, and according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, this could mark the end of Nelson's short stint with San Francisco, as the team will likely cut him with an injury settlement once he's healthy. The 28-year-old wide receiver wasn't expected to have a major role on offense, but he was expected to be a returner.

  • Nelson is slated to miss two weeks to a month due to a knee injury, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports. Though Nelson wasn't necessarily ticketed for a big role in the 49ers offense, his absence further taxes the depth of the team's banged-up wideout corps. Once he's back, the speedster will look top carve out a depth pass-catcher/return role with San Francisco.

  • Nelson signed a contract with the 49ers on Saturday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Nelson, who has compiled 100 total yards over the past two seasons with the Cardinals and Raiders, was once regarded as one of the fastest players in the NFL and makes for an intriguing specialist in the Niners' passing game given the team's reliance on motioning wide receivers to set up different plays. Deebo Samuel, who is expected to miss all of training camp as he recovers from offseason foot surgery, posted 159 rushing yards across 14 carries last season in a similar role, although Nelson could also earn a spot on the 53-man roster as a return specialist after Travis Benjamin opted out of the 2020 campaign.

  • The 49ers plan to sign Nelson, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. The 49ers also plan to sign Tavon Austin, as the team looks to add wideout depth given that both Deebo Samuel (foot) and Richie James (wrist) are dealing with injury issues. The 5-foot-10, 160-pound Nelson hasn't put up much production over the past two seasons, but during his first few years in the league with the Cardinals (2015-2017), the speedster demonstrated a degree of bog-play upside.
