The 49ers have agreed to terms with running back Shaun Draughn, as Adam Schefter of ESPN.com tweets. Draughn will be expected to provide SF with depth as it deals with multiple injuries in the backfield.
Draughn appeared in five games this season for Cleveland with two carries for 10 yards. Last month, however, the Browns cut him loose in favor of linebacker Jayson DiManche. The 27-year-old has been on six other NFL teams since entering the league in 2011. On Sunday, the 49ers lost Reggie Bush and Mike Davis to injuries and both players could be done for the year. Carlos Hyde, meanwhile, did not play due to a stress fracture. It’s possible that Draughn will be playing a key role for the 49ers, even if it’s only in the short term.
