The 49ers are expected to sign former Michigan State tailback Glenn Winston, reports Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com (via Twitter).
Winston will replace Kendall Hunter, who was placed on waive/reserve earlier today. Because Hunter is a free agent this offseason, it is highly unlikely that he will be claimed off of waivers, and will spend the season on the team’s injured reserve list.
Winston worked out with the team earlier today, and will provide depth during the preseason and the rest of camp. Head coach Jim Harbaugh announced earlier that the team would be adding to their running back depth chart, according to Maiocco (via Twitter).
