Mabin was promoted to the 49ers' 53-man roster from their practice squad Thursday, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports. Mabin was brought back to the 53-man roster by San Fransisco after he was recently waived by the team Oct. 30. The Iowa product has already racked up 10 tackles (eight solo) and one forced fumble in six games for the 49ers this season. Though it's not official, Mabin could resume the role he previously held with the 49ers as a depth cornerback.
The 49ers waived Mabin on Tuesday, according to the team's official site. Mabin appeared in six games and racked up 10 tackles and one forced fumble this season with the 49ers. It's uncertain if San Francisco will be interested in signing him to their practice squad if he clears waivers.
Mabin (calf) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. Mabin missed each of the last two games with a calf injury. However, his full participation in practice Wednesday puts him in line to return for the season finale Sunday against the Rams.
Mabin (calf) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Titans. Mabin was added to the 49ers' injury report Thursday with the calf issue, which limited him during the team's final two practices of the week. Given Mabin's poor health and standing as a depth player in the secondary, the 49ers elected to hold him out, allowing K'Waun Williams and Leon Hall to dress as the backups to starting cornerbacks Ahkello Witherspoon and Dontae Johnson.
Mabin was released by the Bills on Monday, Joe Buscaglia of 7 ABC Buffalo reports. Mabin was the most recent addition to the Bills cornerback crew, so he'll also be the first man out in anticipation of the team getting at least one injured player back at the position for the Week 7 matchup against Tampa Bay. Mabin's release is also partly due to the need to clear a roster spot for previously suspended lineman Seantrel Henderson.
