49ers Promote Te Asante Cleveland From Practice Squad, Release Josh Johnson - Yahoo Sports

September 22, 2014

He was released during final roster cuts and then signed to the practice squad. Vernon Davis and Vance McDonald are both listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals . This would seem to indicate that one or both might be less than 50 percent likely to play. Both will probably go through a workout on Sunday before the game, at which point the 49ers will decide if they should be active or inactive. The 49ers have to promote a player from the practice squad by Saturday in order to have them available for Sunday. Davis and McDonald could both still play on Sunday, but the 49ers need insurance just in case. Derek Carrier is alreadylooking at more playing time. Additionally, the team has long snapper Kyle Nelson as an emergency option at tight end. I would not expect Nelson to see much playing time, although if both Davis and McDonald are unable to play, that opens the door for a little bit of playing time for Nelson.
