  1. I think we have some players that are going to surprise this year… mostly Quitton Patton and Baldwin. CK7 just makes plays and these two looked good Sun.

    1. If they invite him to join the PS, he knows enough by now to view it as a victory for him. By that I mean, it would be chance for him to make the 53 next year of an organization likely to contend for the Super Bowl for years to come.

    2. Yeah, last I read Okoye is going on the IR. I’ve noticed several guys get mysterious injuries.

      Grant, what is the maximum number of players the 49ers can put on IR or PUP, or NFI lists?

      1. claude is right, there is no numerical limit, but because of the cap hit, it prevents teams from trying to stash a large number of players on injured lists.

      2. Miner, it would only be a hit if their salaries are large? It all adds up, even at minimum salaries. 10 players at $405,000 would come to $4,050,000. So you don’t consider that a pretty big hit against the cap?

  2. The players on the injured lists aren’t really any big surprise. I thought they would wait a few days before using them to reduce the roster to 53, but my guess is that Harbaugh realizes this may be the last time a lot of these players are going to be able to play a game in the NFL as well as giving them a shot to impress as possible PS players for the 49ers and other teams.

    1. Yes. They are essentially the same, the only difference is that the NFI list is for injuries sustained outside of football. Rookies also qualify for this list if brought in with pre-existing injury.

  3. So…..Cornellius Carradine, Quinton Dial, Marcus Lattimore, Luke Marquardt, Eric Wright, Michael Crabtree and Mario Manningham ……….are out till week 6?

  4. CB Ras-I-Dowling was just waived by the Pats. Probably will be claimed by someone else. But might be worth throwing on the PUP just in case he can make it through a half a season injury free.
