49ers 2022 Practice squad tracker

·1 min read

The 49ers have trimmed their active roster down to 53 players, but they still need to decide which players will make up their 16-man practice squad for the 2022 season.

With practice squads expanded to 16 last year, teams have greater flexibility to stash potential difference-makers, and picking the right players is critical given the impact injuries to the 53-man group consistently have on a season.

The practice squad can be filled with released players who cleared waivers or chose not to sign with another team as well as free agents let go by other clubs. Only six of the 16 can have more than two accrued NFL seasons.

Teams can sign players to their practice squad at 1:00pm Pacific Time but reports tend to emerge beforehand. Follow along as we keep you up to date with the practice squad signings for San Francisco.
