Hit with injury

Poindexter (undisclosed) was placed on the practice squad injured list Thursday.

Analysis: The Arizona product joined San Francisco in April as an undrafted free agent, and he hasn't yet been capable of cracking the 53-man roster. Despite a myriad of WR injuries throughout the season, Poindexter remains in search of his NFL debut as he joins the injured list heading into Week 15.

Back with Niners

Poindexter signed to San Francisco's practice squad Tuesday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Analysis: The 24-year-old spent training camp with the 49ers, but he was let go at roster cutdowns in early September. Poindexter has yet to make his NFL debut since going undrafted out of Arizona in 2019.

Waived by Niners

Poindexter was waived by the 49ers on Saturday.

Cleared to play

Poindexter (knee) wasactivated off the PUP list on Monday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Analysis: Poindexter was originally placed on the active/PUP list by the 49ers but that did not last long. He spent his entire rookie season on injured reserve due to a knee injury, so a full training camp will be advantageous for his chances of earning a spot on the team's 53-man roster.

Shifts to PUP list

The 49ers placed Poindexter (knee) on the active/PUP list Tuesday, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Poindexter spent the entirety of his rookie season on injured reserve after suffering a knee injury last August, and he still doesn't appear ready to practice. Missing a large portion of training camp would likely significantly impact Poindexter's already-slim chances of cracking the 53-man roster.

Uphill battle to crack roster

Poindexter (knee) will compete for a depth role in San Francisco's crowded wide receiver room during training camp, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Analysis: The 49ers are currently carrying 12 wideouts on the 90-man roster, so even with Deebo Samuel (foot) in contention to miss some early-season time, Poindexter will face strong competition for a reserve role. The Arizona product spent his entire rookie campaign on injured reserve due to a knee injury sustained last August.

Lands on IR

Poindexter cleared waivers and was placed on the 49ers' reserve/injured list Thursday, per the NFL transactions report.

Analysis: Poindexter sustained the injury in Monday's preseason contest against the Broncos. The Arizona product won't count against San Francisco's 90-man roster.

Parts ways with 49ers

Poindexter (knee) was waived/injured by the 49ers on Wednesday, Nick Wagoner of reports.

Analysis: Poindexter was waived just two days after suffering a knee injury during Monday's preseason tilt versus the Broncos. Assuming he clears waivers, Poindexter will revert to San Francisco's injured reserve.

Sprains knee

Tuesday's tests revealed Poindexter suffered a sprained knee in Monday's preseason game against the Broncos, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The 49ers originally feared Poindexter tore his ACL, so this news comes somewhat as a relief. Still, Poindexter was presumably on the outside looking in at a final roster spot prior to the injury, so this injury will not help his chances.

Questionable to return

Poindexter suffered a knee injury in Monday's game against the Broncos and is questionable to return, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports reports.

Analysis: Poindexter is battling for a depth/special teams role, so a potential injury could be a major setback for the undrafted rookie. Look for more updates to come in the following days when the 49ers resume practice.

Aug 19, 2019 7:33 PM EST

Dealing with minor injury

Poindexter sat out of Monday's practice due to a minor injury, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: It is unclear what issue Poindexter is dealing with, but it does not appear to be serious at this time. The undrafted rookie will need to make an impression in training camp in order to land a spot on the 49ers' 53-man roster
