The 49ers announced on Friday that they signed K Tristan Vizcaino to the team’s practice squad. He’ll wear No. 7.

Vizcaino (6-2, 205) originally entered the NFL after signing a Reserve/Future contract with the Cincinnati Bengals on January 1, 2019. Cincinnati was waived on August 30, 2019, and later signed a Reserve/Future contract with the Dallas Cowboys on January 21, 2020. Following his release from the Cowboys on April 22, he re-signed with the Bengals on August 1 and was later waived by the team on August 26.

He later signed to the Minnesota Vikings practice squad on November 21 and was released on December 15. A 24-year-old native of La Verne, CA, Vizcaino attended the University of Washington. In four years with the Huskies (2014-17), he appeared in 52 games, serving as the kicker and punter. Vizcaino connected on 12 of 20 field-goal attempts and punted 56 times for 2,273 yards (40.6 average), with a long of 65 yards and 17 punts downed inside the 20.

The 49ers also promoted Alex Barrett to the active roster from the team’s practice squad and played Trent Williams and Jordan Willis on the injured reserve list.

Dre Greenlaw was ruled out for Sunday’s game, along with the following starters and Kevin Givens:

CB Richard Sherman (calf)
WR Brandon Aiyuk (ankle)
DT Kevin Givens (not injury related)
DT Javon Kinlaw (knee)
WR Deebo Samuel (hamstring)
CB K’Waun Williams (shin)
LB Dre Greenlaw (calf)

The following players were listed as questionable

S Tarvarius Moore (ankle)

CB Emmanuel Moseley (hamstring)

LB Mark Nzeocha (illness)

Moore and Moseley were limited all week in practice, while Nzeocha missed Wednesday's session. Moore and Moseley were both questionable last week and played, so they both figure to suit up Sunday against the Seahawks.

Justin Skule and Jimmie Ward are not on the injury report. Skule likely takes over for Williams at left tackle, while Ward returns as a starter after clearing the concussion protocol.
