Scores first career touchdown

Jennings caught both of his targets for 17 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 17-11 win over the Eagles.

Analysis: Jennings ran a levels concept with tight end George Kittle, taking the under route and benefitting from the defense drifting towards his teammate as the wideout took the ball to the house. While this was a big day for the 24-year-old, keep in mind that he logged just six offensive snaps, so he is unlikely to find the end zone very often with the current depth chart configuration.

Off injury report

Jennings (heel) isn't listed on the 49ers' injury report Wednesday.

Analysis: Jennings played well in the 49ers' preseason opener but an injury in Week 2 derailed the receivers' chances of making the team. The 24-year-old ended up making the team and is no longer on the injury report so he could see minimal snaps in Sunday's season opener.

Expected to play Sunday

Jennings (heel) participated in Friday's walk-through practice and is expected to play in the preseason finale Sunday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Jennings had a strong showing in the preseason opener, totaling three touches for 49 yards, but he was unable to maintain that momentum as a heel injury sidelined him for Week 2 of preseason. The extra work will be vital for the 24-year-old as he competes for a roster spot with Travis Benjamin and Trent Sherfield.

Practices in limited capacity

Jennings was limited to side work during Thursday's practice, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: jennings appears to be progressing towards being available for the 49ers' final preseason game against the Raiders on Aug. 29. The 2020 seventh-round pick was forced to miss last week's contest after an impressive performance during Week 1 of the preseason. He spent parts of his rookie season on the practice squad and was vying for a spot on the regular-season roster before his injury.

Sitting with heel injury

Jennings won't play in Sunday's preseason game at the Chargers due to a heel injury, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: A 2020 seventh-round pick of the 49ers, Jennings spent parts of his rookie season on the team's practice squad. After a stay on the reserve/COVID-19 list during training camp this summer, he impressed in preseason Week 1 with three touches for 49 yards from scrimmage on 38 offensive snaps. Now, a different health concern is threatening his availability, which in turn could set him back in his case for a spot on the regular-season roster.

Making case for roster spot

Jennings' strong showing in the preseason opener (three touches for 49 yards) has put him in position to compete for a roster spot this preseason, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: While Trent Sherfield stole the show with an 80-yard touchdown reception, it was Jennings who was the first backup to enter the game against the Chiefs on Saturday, also finishing with a position-high 38 offensive snaps. The team clearly wanted to get a look at the 24-year-old, and his success on the field puts him in the mix to compete for a backup job behind what looks to be a settled starting trio of Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk and Mohamed Sanu.

Return to practice not imminent

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.

Battling hamstring injury

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.

Dealing with injury

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.

Sticks on practice squad

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.

Let go by 49ers

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.
