Ravens sign Jermaine Whitehead off 49ers practice squad

The San Francisco 49ers lost a player off their practice squad on Wednesday. A day after the 49ers signed DuJuan Harris from the Baltimore Ravens practice squad, the Ravens returned the favor by signing safety Jermaine Whitehead from the 49ers practice squad.

The 49ers originally signed Whitehead this past May as an undrafted free agent out of Auburn. He never really had a significant chance at a roster spot given the 49ers depth and addition of Jaquiski Tartt. He has been on the practice squad through the first 14 weeks, but now gets to spend the rest of the regular season on the 53-man roster of an injury-riddled Ravens squad.

The 49ers practice squad is down to eight players with Whitehead's departure. Here is what the roster looks like:

QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson
WR DiAndre Campbell
TE Jamie Childers
OT Donald Hawkins
RB Jarryd Hayne
DT Kaleb Ramsey
OLB Marcus Rush
DT Garrison Smith
