The good news is that Trey Lance officially signed his contract and can compete at the 49ers‘ first official practice that’s set to kick off on Wednesday morning. The bad news is the Niners placed two more players on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
Veteran strong safety Jaquiski Tartt and second-year wideout Jauan Jennings were placed on the list Wednesday, which means they won’t take part in practice. Here’s how the NFL rules work: If they tested positive and are vaccinated, they need to be asymptomatic and post negative results 24 hours apart. If unvaccinated, they’ll be out for at least 10 days.
Those two join Emmanuel Moseley on the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
Jennings doesn’t want to miss too much time as his spot on the roster isn’t guaranteed, and he provides size and a contested-catch ability that only Jalen Hurd, at least for now, gives the team. Let’s hope each player is safe and can return to the field as soon as possible.
