49ers sign RB DuJuan Harris, place CB Will Redmond on IR
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) The San Francisco 49ers signed running back DuJuan Harris to a one-year contract and placed cornerback Will Redmond on injured reserve.
The move Monday gives the Niners a fourth running back as insurance with starter Carlos Hyde still in the concussion protocol after getting hurt in the third preseason game.
Harris had 27 carries for 140 yards and nine catches for 97 yards in two games with San Francisco last season. He was cut Saturday.
Redmond was drafted in the third round out of Mississippi State despite tearing his ACL in practice in October. He played in the final two exhibition games this summer. He will be eligible to return after sitting out at least six weeks and then practicing for two weeks.
