Patrick was released from the 49ers' practice squad Tuesday. Patrick was waived by San Francisco in mid-October but stuck around the team on the practice squad. With JaMycal Hasty now healthy and back in the fold and Jeff Wilson (knee) nearing his return from the PUP list, the 49ers have plenty of depth at running back for now.
Patrick was signed to the 49ers practice squad Monday, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Patrick was waived by the 49ers last week but will stick around the organization on the practice squad. He could rejoin the active roster of Elijah Mitchell, Trey Sermon or Trenton Cannon suffer an injury.
Patrick was waived by the 49ers on Tuesday. Patrick suited up for San Francisco in its three previous games. He only saw action in Week 4, when he recorded two carries for 12 yards. He will now wait for a new opportunity, as Elijah Mitchell, Trey Sermon and Trenton Cannon are expected to handle running back duties for the team in the immediate future.
Patrick received two carries for 12 yards in Sunday's 28-21 loss to Seattle. Patrick made his second appearance with the 49ers, but this time around he got on the field for an offensive drive (six snaps). Trey Sermon still dominated the backfield playing time (51 percent of offensive snaps), but the big-framed back took over the backup duties after not receiving an offensive snap last week. Elijah Mitchell's (shoulder) status still is up in the air for Sunday's tilt against the Cardinals, so it'll be interesting to see if Patrick's touches increase at all if he's asked to back up Sermon again.
