The San Francisco 49ers restored quarterback Josh Johnson and wide receiver Kevin White to the practice squad from the Reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday. White and Johnson had been placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list last week.
White, a former first-round pick by the Chicago Bears, has spent the majority of the season on the team’s practice squad, but suited up in three games this year. While he did not record a reception, he has returned a single kickoff for 20 yards.
Johnson joined the club’s practice squad in mid-November. Frustratingly for him, he seemed poised to finally be promoted to the active roster after Nick Mullens suffered a season-ending elbow injury. However, the 49ers have since added former first-round pick Josh Rosen and seem set at QB.
