The 49ers announced they placed receiver Kassim Osgood on injured reserve. He broke a bone in his hand Week 15 against the Seahawks.
49ers wide receiver Kassim Osgood is likely done for the season with a broken bone in his hand, coach Jim Harbaugh said Monday. Osgood broke the bone in Sunday's loss to Seattle, according to Harbaugh.
Osgood did not record a catch this year in San Francisco.
The 49ers announced a pair of roster moves on Wednesday, according to the Bay Area News Group. The team waived wide receiver Kassim Osgood and signed special-teams standout Raymond Ventrone.
The 49ers re-signed receiver Kassim Osgood after waiving running back LaMichael James. Osgood, 34, will play on special teams.
The 49ers have released veteran wide receiver Kassim Osgood and activated guard Alex Boone off their roster exemption.
Osgood had been signed by the Niners on Tuesday. He has not caught more than six passes in a season since 2004.
The 49ers placed defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey on the injured reserve with a designation to return Tuesday while re-signing wide receiver Kassim Osgood , the team announced.
Dorsey, who recently signed a contract extension, is recovering from a torn bicep and has a chance at returning before the end of the season. Osgood was cut this past weekend as the team trimmed its roster to 53 players.
The 49ers made a slew of moves Saturday to pare their roster down to the required 53 for the regular season.
Among those moves was the placement of cornerback Kenneth Acker and fullback Will Tukuafu on the injured reserve list.
San Francisco cut the following players: T Carter Bykowski, TE Asante Cleveland, WR Lance Lewis, LS Kevin McDermott, CB Darryl Morris, G Al Netter, DL Lawrence Okoye, WR Kassim Osgood, T Michael Philipp, NT Mike Purcell, G Ryan Seymour, LB Shayne Skov, RB Alfonso Smith, G Adam Snyder, S C.J. Spillman, LB Chase Thomas, S Raymond Ventrone, WR L'Damian Washington and RB Glenn Winston.
The 49ers signed Brandon Lloyd on Tuesday, which should impact Kassim Osgood and Jon Baldwin but not matter much to Quinton Patton, reports ESPN.
The 49ers are locked in with their top two receivers in Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin, and Patton is expected to be No. 3 on the depth chart. After that, the 49ers are wide open, and Lloyd could be No. 4 ahead of Baldwin and Osgood.
The report says if Lloyd makes the team Baldwin will likely be out. The team re-signed Osgood this offseason because he is a huge part of the special teams. But the 49ers will likely not keep more than six receivers.
Patton, who finished the season strong in 2013 as a rookie, should have time to develop as the No. 3 option. The 49ers are also expected to take a wide receiver in the draft.
The 49ers re-signed receiver Kassim Osgood, a key special teams player, reports NFL Network.

The 49ers got some minor offensive contributions in their Week 16 win. Among them, receiver Kassim Osgood caught a 17-yard pass, his first reception since 2011.
Tight end Vance McDonald was targeted twice without making a catch. He stumbled on one route that would have gained about 20 yards.
Nearly all who were injured have been cleared to play Sunday by the 49ers against Carolina. The two exceptions on the inactive list, coincidentally, are both named Quinton. They are defensive lineman Quinton Dial (ankle) and wide receiver Quinton Patton (foot).
The healthy scratches are quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson, defensive tackle Tank Carradine, guard Joe Looney, wide receiver Kassim Osgood and cornerback Eric Wright.

The 49ers are looking for a receiver to step up opposite Anquan Boldin with Michael Crabtree (Achilles) out, and the group had mixed results during Thursday's preseason opener against Denver, reports the Sacramento Bee.
Coach Jim Harbaugh praised receivers Marlon Moore, who started the game, and Kassim Osgood, who played well both on offense and on special teams. As far as A.J. Jenkins, who played more snaps than any other receiver but who ranked 10th in receiving yards Thursday. "Ah, it could have been better," Harbaugh said.
Newcomer Austin Collie got into the game at the end and had two catches for 20 yards. "A little foreign because it's been so long," said Collie, who missed most of the 2012 season with a knee injury. "But it felt good."
49ers receiver Kassim Osgood made his San Francisco debut in Thursday's exhibition opener against the Broncos.
Osgood, who has not played a regular season snap since 2011 with the Jaguars, made his presence felt in the second quarter with Scott Tolzien under center. He caught a 16-yard pass late in the first half near midfield for his longest gain of the night. He was targeted four times and finished with three catches for 34 yards in a 10-6 defeat.
The 49ers have a hole to fill opposite Anquan Boldin with Michael Crabtree expected to miss much of the regular season but no one's stepped up thus far in camp. Kyle Williams (hamstring) and Ricardo Lockette (hip) both are sidelined and Marlon Moore, Kassim Osgood and Quinton Patton (jammed finger) appear gimpy as well according to Comcast Sportsnet.
Second-year receiver and former first-round pick A.J. Jenkins hasn't ascended, per the report. He didn't have any receptions in team drills on Sunday and remains undistinguished.
If there's been a bright spot, it's been Chad Hall. Per the report, he's made the biggest impact of all the receivers and has even caught the eye of teammate Vernon Davis.
"I really like Chad," Davis said. "He's quick, he's fast, (and) he's doing everything that the coaches are asking him to do and he comes to work."
The 49ers on Tuesday announced they have signed receiver Kassim Osgood to a one-year contract. Osgood (6-5, 220), a two-time All-Pro and three-time Pro Bowl selection as a special teamer, has played in 152 career games and registered 44 receptions for 749 yards and five touchdowns, while adding 122 special teams tackles during his 10-year career. After originally signing with San Diego as an undrafted free agent in 2003, he spent seven years with the Chargers before signing with the Jaguars in 2010. Osgood spent two seasons with the Jaguars, appearing in 28 games (five starts) prior to spending the 2012 season with the Lions, where he appeared in all 16 games. A 33-year-old native of Boston, MA, Osgood played at San Diego State University where he finished second in the nation with 108 receptions earning First-Team All-Mountain West honors as a senior. Hastings (6-0, 185) most recently signed with the 49ers on March 7, 2013.
