The San Francisco 49ers opened the practice window for running back Tevin Coleman, tight end Jordan Reed, and cornerback K’Waun Williams Wednesday morning. By opening each of their practice windows, the 49ers have 21 days to promote them to the active roster. With as many weapons that have gone down on offense due to injury, having Coleman and especially Reed back in the mix would significantly boost the offense.

The beat reporters that have been on hand at practice have reported that each of the three players was working out on the side fields last week. Williams has been planning to return against the Seahawks and seems the most likely. With a quick turnaround against the Packers the following Thursday, I’m not sure if we see Coleman or Reed against Green Bay. The Niners have 10 days until their next game, where they travel to play the New Orleans Saints. We’re a couple of weeks away, but San Francisco could have Reed, Raheem Mostert, and Deebo Samuel all on the field against New Orleans.

The 49ers signed defensive lineman Alex Barrett, wide receiver Chris Finke, and cornerback Parnell Motley to the practice squad and released DL Josiah Coatney. The team was high on Finke this past offseason as he offers the ability as a returner. Motley could serve as a developmental cornerback, so it was wise to bring him back as well.
