    Detroit signed Averett to its practice squad Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

  • Anthony Averett: Reaches injury settlement

    Averett (undisclosed) was released from the 49ers' injured reserve Thursday after both parties agreed to an injury settlement, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    Averett was in danger of missing the entire 2023 campaign before this injury settlement was agreed upon. It is unclear what specific injury is nagging him, but he will now be able to sign elsewhere once he is back to full health. The 28-year-old recorded 13 tackles (12 solo) across seven games in Las Vegas last year.

    Averett agreed to a one-year deal with the 49ers on Thursday.

Expect the veteran corner to compete for a depth spot on the 49ers defense ahead of the coming season.
