Toran informed the Patriots on Monday that he will opt out of the 2020 season, Jim McBride of The Boston Globe reports.
Toran was expected to compete for an interior depth role on the offensive line in training camp, but he'll now wait until 2021 to resume his career.
Toran (hand) played 27 snaps in Saturday's preseason game against the Chiefs.
Toran had the hand injury crop up during training camp, but he still played in all three preseason contests. The 23-year-old should provide interior depth on the offensive line for the 49ers.
Toran suffered a hand injury during Saturday's preseason win over the Cowboys, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
It's unclear how Toran picked up the injury and how severe it is at this point. Expect the team to have an update on the depth lineman's health in the coming days.
Toran signed a reserve/future contract with San Francisco on Tuesdays, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Toran will join the 49ers for their offseason program that begins April 15. With an impressive showing in OTAs, training camp and the preseason, Toran could have a shot at earning a roster spot heading into 2019 as a reserve lineman.
