The 49ers signed Bolden to their practice squad Thursday.
Bolden was waived by the 49ers earlier this week, and he ultimately rejoins the team as a member of the practice squad. The 23-year-old logged one reception for 10 yards during four games with San Francisco this season, and he'll now work to earn another shot at a depth role with the team.
Bolden was waived by the 49ers on Tuesday, according to the team's official site.
The second-year receiver out of Oregon St. appeared in four games with San Francisco this season, catching one pass for 10 yards. Bolden will look to join another team in search of receiver/kick returner depth.
Bolden had one catch (four targets) for 10 yards in Sunday's loss to Arizona.
Bolden made his 2018 debut after serving a four-game suspension to begin the season. The speedy wideout appeared to have scored the first touchdown of his career on a quick strike from C.J. Beathard, but replay review showed that he was touched down at the one-yard line. Bolden's four targets ranked fourth amongst San Francisco wideouts, but his role is likely to diminish once Marquise Goodwin (hamstring) and/or Dante Pettis (knee) return from injury.
Bolden (suspension) has been reinstated by the league, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Despite the reinstatement, Bolden's immediate future depends on whether the 49ers will choose to activate him. San Francisco has a week to decide on Bolden's value. Bolden was issued a four-game ban over the summer for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Bolden has been suspended for the first four games of the 2018 season for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Bolden was primarily being used on special teams last season as a return man before an ankle injury caused him to land on the team's injured reserve. He'll now, should he make the team's final roster, have to wait until at least Week 5 to make his return to the field, but the suspension could lead to the 49ers releasing Bolden.
