49ers' Marcell Harris: Lands extension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers have signed Harris to a one-year extension.

Harris flashed enough promise during his time in San Francisco, posting 111 tackles, eight pass breakups and five forced fumbles throughout his first three seasons with the team. Harris will look to build on his defensive skills in the upcoming year, as he's earned an extension with the 49ers.

49ers' Marcell Harris: Serves as reliable backup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris appeared in all 16 games with the 49ers in 2020, finishing with 37 tackles (27 solo), three pass defenses and two forced fumbles.

Harris continued to serve as a reliable backup for San Francisco this past season, logging 348 defensive snaps while filling in for injured starters on occasion. The team has a difficult decision to make regarding unrestricted free agent Jaquiski Tartt this offseason, and the possibility exists that Harris could finally elevate to starting strong safety to begin 2021. If the 49ers don't re-sign Tartt or sign/draft a replacement, Harris has the physical tools that could lead to strong IDP production, even if his coverage skills are still suspect.

49ers' Marcell Harris: Expected starter Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris is expected to start at safety in place of Jaquiski Tartt (groin) on Sunday against the Patriots, Kelana Martin of the 49ers' official site reports.

The 49ers will be without Jimmie Ward (quadriceps) as well, and Tarvarius Moore is expected to cover for him at free safety. Harris has played only 48 defensive snaps this season, but he played plenty on defense over the previous two seasons, collecting 74 tackles over 21 games.

49ers' Marcell Harris: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Rams, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Harris was listed as questionable for Sunday after having closed the week with back-to-back missed practices, but he's managed to get healthy enough to suit up for Sunday Night Football. He stands to contribute as a backup option at safety.

49ers' Marcell Harris: Nursing ankle injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris is day-to-day with an ankle injury, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

Harris is expected to play a key backup role in San Francisco's safety corps, and it doesn't look like this ankle injury will slow him down for too long. He mostly contributes on special teams, but Harris boasts the athleticism to make an impact in IDP formats should he get a chance to start.

49ers' Marcell Harris: Puts athleticism on display
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris recorded 40 tackles (23 solo), five passes defended and three forced fumbles over 13 games in 2019.

Harris spent most of the season on the special teams unit, but he gave us a glimpse of what he could produce as a starter when he totaled 28 tackles, five passes defended and a forced fumble over four games filling in for Jaquiski Tartt. The 25-year-old possesses tremendous speed and hit power -- ideal qualities for a special teams player -- but he could put up useful IDP numbers when starting. Harris remains under contract for the 2020 season, where he should stick as a backup safety.

49ers' Marcell Harris: Receives another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris is starting at strong safety Saturday against the Rams, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

The 25-year-old is making his third straight start in place of Jaquiski Tart (ribs). Harris has 12 total tackles, four passes defensed and one forced fumble in his first two starts.

49ers' Marcell Harris: Set to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris will start in place of Jaquiski Tartt (ribs) at strong safety Sunday against the Saints, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Tartt sustained a fractured rib during the Week 13 loss to the Ravens and will be sidelined for at least one contest, pushing Harris into the starting role. Harris received five starts for the 49ers last season -- also in place of an injured Tartt -- but he was unable to crack the season-opening roster for 2019.

49ers' Marcell Harris: Jumps to active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers promoted Harris to the active roster Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Harris spent the first month of the regular season on the practice squad, and the 49ers like what they've seen out of him enough to activate him after their bye week. The second-year pro played eight games for the team last year, averaging 44.8 defensive snaps per game. He could have an immediate role on the 49ers' defense since Jimmie Ward (hand) missed the first three weeks and isn't guaranteed to be ready for Sunday's game versus the Browns.

49ers' Marcell Harris: Strong finish to rookie campaign
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris recorded 34 tackles (24 solo) in eight games this season.

Harris' rookie year got off to a rocky start when he landed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury before getting into his first NFL game. The Florida product was activated off of IR midseason and thrust into the starting strong safety role for the last five games of the year following Jaquiski Tartt's (shoulder) injury. Harris averaged 5.8 tackles over those five starts, and while those numbers are decent, the 25-year-old's speed and physicality at the point of impact was apparent. The 49ers' safety situation looks to be unsettled -- both in terms of talent and health -- heading into the 2019 campaign, and Harris figures to factor somewhere in that picture given his strong play to finish the season.

49ers' Marcell Harris: Set to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris will start at strong safety against the Broncos on Sunday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Jaquiski Tartt is sidelined with a shoulder injury, and the 49ers are opting to go with Harris in his stead rather than Antone Exum. The rookie sixth round-pick saw 58 defensive snaps last week and had five tackles (three solo).

49ers' Marcell Harris: Activated off injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (hamstring) was activated off injured reserve by the 49ers on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Harris has not seen the field in 2018 due to a hamstring injury that forced him to land on the IR. Now that he's officially activated, Harris is eligible to play Thursday against the Raiders. The rookie safety was able to practice Wednesday, so there is a strong possibility he suits up against the Raiders. If Harris does play, it's unknown what sort of role he will have with the team.

49ers' Marcell Harris: Practices Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (hamstring) participated in practice Wednesday, Nick Wagoner of reports.

Harris has spent all season on injured reserve, and the rookie's return to practice opens his window to be activated from IR. If Harris is eventually activated to the 53-man roster, the first game he'll be eligible to play will be Week 9 against the Raiders.

49ers' Marcell Harris: Activation at midseason likely
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (hamstring) is expected to be activated from injured reserve by the 49ers at midseason, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

The former Florida standout was placed on IR on Sept. 3 with the eligibility to return. The fact that San Francisco plans to activate him at midseason suggest Harris is progressing nicely. With fellow safety Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder) also likely to miss time, Antone Exum and Tyvis Powell should expect more reps in the meantime.

49ers' Marcell Harris: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve Monday, according to the 49ers' official site.

Harris was dealing with an injured hamstring for the second half of the preseason and it has now gotten to the point where he could miss the entire season. He is still eligible to come back halfway through the season, should the 49ers elect to do so. For now, the team will be limited to four safeties.

49ers' Marcell Harris: Injures hamstring Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris suffered a hamstring injury during Wednesday's practice, Matt Barrows of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

Harris was nursing an Achilles injury when the 49ers selected him in the sixth round of April's draft. He is competing with Antone Exum for a spot behind Jaquiski Tartt at strong safety, but Harris has had limited action since arriving in San Francisco. His best path to make the team may be through special teams.

49ers' Marcell Harris: Removed from NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harris (Achilles) was removed from the NFI list Tuesday, Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group reports.

Harris missed his senior campaign at Florida due to an Achilles injury in 2017, but he's now eligible to participate in training camp after being removed from the NFI list. The sixth-rounder will compete for a roster spot in a depth role at safety.
