Kyle’s update, 12:18 p.m. PT: Qwuantrezz Knight is on the practice squad, per Matt Barrows. Along with Trey Swelling.

Kyle’s update, 11:47 a.m. PT: The 49ers signed former Packers 5th-round draft pick Shemar Jean-Charles to the practice squad, per Ari Meriov. He was up and down for Green Bay, and had a good first preseason game for the Packers. He’s at his best in the nickel, and also contributed on special teams. Jean-Charles was a healthy scratch for much of the second half of last season.

Known for his ball skills out of Appalachian State, Jean-Charles had 16 pass breakups as a senior.

Kyle’s update, 10:57 a.m. PT: The 49ers are adding center Corey Luciano to the practice squad, per his agent.

Kyle’s update, 10:07 a.m. PT: Defensive tackles Marlon Davidson and TY McGill have signed with the practice squad, per Matt Barrows.

Kyle’s update, 9:47 a.m. PT: The Arizona Cardinals were awarded two players off waivers from the 49ers. Both offensive linemen Ilm Manning and Keith Ismael are headed to Arizona.

Carolina claimed UDFA CB D’Shawn Jamison.

The NFL’s waiver period ended at 9 a.m. PT. The 49ers are near the bottom of the waiver wire, 30th, to be specific, so they’d need essentially every team in the NFL to pass on a player. But now that the waiver period is over, the Niners can begin to put together their practice squad. That consists of 16 players. Alfredo Gutierrez does not count as he’s an international player, so San Francisco is granted an exception.

We’ll use this tracker to update who signs to the Niners practice squad during the day, and if they’re lucky enough to claim a player on waivers.
