49ers Live Cuts Tracker: JaMycal Hasty misses out

By Saturday night, the 49ers, and every other team in the NFL, will have their initial 53-man roster, which are due by 1 p.m. PT. Roster evolution is of course, fluid, and many of these player being cut will return via the practice squad, which has now expanded to 16 players, and for the first time, allows two players per week to be called up to the active roster without being removed from the practice squad (this can be done twice before the player has to be signed to the active roster.

Especially for many of these younger guys, these practice squad spots will allow them to remain around the team and potentially see game action once the season gets underway.

This is a living document and will be updated as cuts are revealed:

On Friday, the 49ers released nickel corner Jamar Taylor, per The Athletic’s Matt Barrows, who never seemed likely to make the roster given his specificity as a backup to a non-every down position.

Recently-signed offensive linemen Dakoda Shepley, who was voted the Most Outstanding Rookie last year in on the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League, was cut, per Barrows. He’s a very likely practice squad candidate.

According to David Lombardi of The Athletic, the 49ers will make the expected cut of Josh Hokit, the backup fullback and Kyle Juszczyk understudy. He’ll go on practice squad, assuming he’s not signed.

Jauan Jennings is the first substantial/potentially surprising name to not make the roster, though he is effectively a tall slot receiver and the 49ers already have two bona fide slot guys in Trent Taylor and Kendrick Bourne (and Richie James Jr., if he makes the team). Jennings announced the cut on Instagram and will likely be welcomed to the practice squad if he clears waivers.

Undrafted rookie linebacker Evan Foster has been waived, according to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Per NBC Sports’ Jennifer Lee Chan, Ross Reynolds has been waived/injured. He suffered a bone bruise and was carted off the field during training camp.

Per Barrows, JaMycal Hasty, who stood out, but was competing against four other running backs with solid standing, was waived. If he is not picked up, the 49ers will feel grateful to have him on the practice squad.

Per Maiocco, Shawn Poindexter, who tore his ACL last preseason, was waived and will not be offered a spot on the practice squad.

Per Barrows, veteran linebacker and special teamer Joe Walker was released. Given that Fred Warner is still on the reserve/COVID-19 list which does not count against the roster, that would suggest the team’s remaining linebackers in Kwon Alexander, Dre Greenlaw, Azeez Al-Shaair, Mark Nzeocha and Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles, are likely to have made the roster, assuming the team keeps five linebackers.

Per Barrows, linebacker Mark Nzeocha, defensive linemen Kentavius Street and Kevin Givens and running back Jeff Wilson Jr. have made the team.

Per Barrows, the team cut veteran safety Johnathan Cyprien, corners Tim Harris and Donate Johnson, undrafted rookie nose tackle Darrion Daniels and center Hroniss Grassu, effectively confirming Daniel Brunskill as the team’s Week 1 starting center if Ben Garland isn’t healthy by then.

According to Field Yates of ESPN, both wide receiver Kevin White and defensive end Dion Jordan, who had a horrible camp, were cut.
