The San Francisco 49ers signed offensive lineman Cameron Hunt to their practice squad on Tuesday, replacing injured lineman JP Flynn. The 49ers have dealt with numerous injuries, so it’s only fitting that they lost a practice squad player to IR.
Hunt entered the NFL this year as an undrafted free agent out of Oregon. He signed with the Denver Broncos on May 11, 2017, and was waived from the team on September 2. During his four-year career at Oregon, he played in 52 games (43 starts) on their offensive line. As a senior in 2016, he started all 12 games at right guard after appearing in 12 games (10 starts) as a junior. In 2014, he saw action in 15 games (14 starts), and as a freshman in 2013, Hunt appeared in 13 games (seven starts).
This past week, the 49ers played their expected starters together for the first time in three weeks. Injuries to Trenton Brown and Joe Staley shook things up during that time, and while Brandon Fusco did play, he was dealing with various injuries. The 49ers offensive line will come out of their Week 11 bye about as healthy as they can be on the offensive line for this juncture of the season.
