Jennings secured a contract with San Fransisco on Monday.
Analysis: After spending some time on the practice squad with the 49ers this season, Jennings (hamstring) will land a spot on the reserves/future list. After suffering an injury in October, the receiver was unable to play in a game and did not see any targets this season.
Coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday that Jennings (hamstring) isn't expected to practice in the near future, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Shanahan added that Jennings nearly ripped his hamstring in October. Despite Shanahan's pessimism in the short term, the head coach was hopeful that Jennings will practice and possibly play in a game by the end of the season. Jennings posted a 59-969-8 line over 13 games in his senior season at Tennessee. He'll remain on the 49ers' practice squad until he's healthy.
Coach Kyle Shanahan relayed Wednesday that Jenning remains on the practice squad injured reserve list with a hamstring injury, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Shanahan explained that Jennings would've been called up to the active roster to fill the void at wide receiver if it wasn't for this injury. Jennings will aim to return in about three weeks, and that same opportunity could be available at that time. The rookie seventh-round pick out of Tennessee produced a 59-969-8 line in his final collegiate season.
The 49ers placed Jennings (undisclosed) on the practice squad injured reserve list Sunday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Analysis: The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but his absence from practice is a hit to the receiving depth of the 49ers. The 2020 seventh-round pick has resided on the practice squad for the entire season to this point.
Jennings was selected to the 49ers' practice squad, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Jennings had a poor combine (4.72 40-yard dash), but turned in a strong camp by drawing praise for his polished route running for his 6-foot-3 frame. The 49ers have a young receiving corps that is already dealing with injuries, so the seventh-round draft pick may find himself getting the call at some point this season.
Jennings was waived by San Francisco on Saturday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Analysis: Jennings was selected in the seventh round by the 49ers in April after he logged a poor combine. The Tennessee product failed to earn a depth roster spot in the Bay Area, but will looking to earn one elsewhere or on a team's practice squad.
