Analysis: Wilds signed with the 49ers on two separate occasions in training camp, but ultimately wasn't able to stick with the team. San Francisco remains comfortable regarding running back depth with Tevin Coleman, Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert all available candidates for the 53-man roster.

Brandon Wilds: Let go by Jags

Wilds was released by the Jaguars on Tuesday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

Analysis: Wilds was in line to take on a bigger role in the Jacksonville backfield when Corey Grant was forced out of Sunday's loss to the Chiefs with a foot injury. However, with the team electing to bring in veteran tailback Jamal Charles on Tuesday, Wilds has been let go in order to open up a roster spot.

Brandon Wilds: Could see increased rol

Wilds rushed twice for six yards after Corey Grant exited Sunday's 30-14 loss to the Chiefs with a foot injury.

Analysis: Grant is headed to injured reserve after suffering a Lisfranc injury, leaving Wilds and T.J. Yeldon as Jacksonville's only healthy running backs since Leonard Fournette continues to battle a hamstring injury. Yeldon dominated the playing time Sunday -- being on the field for 93 percent of offensive snaps -- but Wilds could be in line for an increased role while Fournette remains sidelined. The Jaguars are likely to add another running back in the near future to bolster their depth at the position.

Brandon Wilds: Records one carry

Wilds had one rush for five yards in Sunday's loss to the Titans.

Analysis: The carry came on Wilds' only snap of the afternoon. Leonard Fournette was again inactive due to his hamstring, leaving T.J. Yeldon and Corey Grant to handle duties out of the backfield. Wilds won't be involved in the Jaguars offense barring further injury to the running back group.

Brandon Wilds: Avoids injury designation

Wilds (illness) will not carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Titans.

Analysis: Wilds didn't practice early in the week as he dealt with the illness, but was able to return as a full participant Friday. Leonard Fournette (hamstring) and T.J. Yeldon (ankle) are both listed as questionable, which could have Wilds serving as the No. 3 running back if either is unable to play Sunday.

Brandon Wilds: Dealing with illness

Wilds missed Wednesday's practice with an illness.

Analysis: Wilds saw an increased workload Sunday versus the Patriots with Leonard Fourtnette (hamstring) inactive, though he was limited to just three carries on five snaps. Assuming Wilds is recovered from his illness in time for Week 3, expect a similar workload behind T.J. Yeldon (ankle) and Corey Grant if Fournette remains sidelined.

Brandon Wilds: Promoted from practice squad

Wilds was promoted to the active roster on Saturday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: Wilds was released in final cuts earlier this month. His promotion to the active roster seems to indicate the team may have concern about starting running back Leonard Fournette's (hamstring) health entering the week. Look for Wilds to serve as the No. 3 option at halfback if Fournette is sidelined.
