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.
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 at this time.
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.
