Redmond (ankle) was released from injured reserve by the 49ers on Tuesday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Redmond miss the entire 2016 season with an ankle injury and when he still wasn't ready for Week 1 of the 2017 season, the 49ers decided to place the cornerback on injured reserve again. However, since two months have now passed, Redmond may be closer to taking the field and could draw interest from teams battling secondary injuries.
After missing the entire 2016 season with an ankle injury, Redmond was unable to recover quick enough during the offseason. Unless he and the team can come to terms on an injury settlement he will once again spend the entire season on the IR.
The 2016 third-round draft pick failed to rehab from an ankle issue this preseason after missing all of last year with a significant knee injury. The 49ers could reclaim Redmond and place him on injured reserve if he passes through waivers Saturday.
Redmond (ankle) sat out of Tuesday's practice, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reports.
Redmond missed the entire 2016 season with a knee injury, and he's currently trying to latch onto a special teams or depth role in San Fran. The Mississippi State product was drafted in the third round of the 2016 NFL Draft.
