The San Francisco 49ers on Monday made an in-house addition to their secondary. Cornerback Davontae Harris was activated off injured reserve, and cornerback Buster Skrine was released in a corresponding move.

Harris joined the 49ers late in the preseason but played well enough to work his way onto the active roster. He was immediately placed on Injured Reserve with a hamstring injury, and had his practice window opened prior to Week 4. Now he’ll join a 49ers secondary that in some ways is beginning to stabilize after a tumultuous start to the year.

The Bengals selected Harris in the fifth round of the 2018 draft. He played three games with them as a rookie, spent his second year in Denver, and played parts of last season with the Broncos and Ravens before landing with the 49ers this preseason. In 30 games and eight starts, Harris has 50 tackles, four pass breakups and one forced fumble.

Skrine signed with the 49ers ahead of their Week 4 matchup against the Seahawks. He played four special teams snaps in that game and was inactive for Week 5.
