The San Francisco 49ers have announced their eight-man practice squad. The lineup is:
DT Tony Jerod-Eddie
LB Cam Johnson
DT Matthew Masifilo
OT Al Netter
WR Nathan Palmer
S Michael Thomas
OT Kenny Wiggins
LB Michael Wilhoite
Niners Nation offers come comments on the squad, noting that the moves are not surprising.
Cam Johnson is not a surprise. He spent much of the preseason working back from some kind of knee surgery. He made his preseason debut on Thursday night but it seemed like the team figured they could hide him enough behind the injury to get him on the practice squad. Johnson is a guy who is reported to have a lot of talent, but has dealt with consistency and injury issues. Hopefully a year on the practice squad gets him ready for next year.
