After being released by the team last week, DuJuan Harris is back with the 49ers. ESPN’s Adam Caplan tweets that the running back has re-signed with San Francisco. To make room on the roster, the team has placed cornerback Will Redmond on the injured reserve. Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com tweets that Redmond will be eligible to return later this season.
Harris has bounced around the league since going undrafted out of Troy in 2011. The running back split the 2015 season between the 49ers and the Seahawks, compiling 189 yards on 48 carries. The 28-year-old has averaged 4.2-yards-per-carry throughout his career, and he’s also hauled in 13 career receptions (including nine in 2015).
Redmond, a third-round pick out of Mississippi State, tore his ACL last October. The defensive back showed plenty of talent while in college, but the 49ers still weren’t convinced that he was fully healthy.
