The 49ers on Tuesday made a trio of roster moves prior to the start of their Week 7 practices. Cornerback Parnell Motley was added to the roster. Center Ben Garland was placed on Injured Reserve with a calf injury and tight end Daniel Helm was waived.
San Francisco claimed Motley off waivers from the Buccaneers prior to Week 6. He was an undrafted rookie out of Oklahoma who saw action in two games for Tampa Bay as a special teams player. He cleared COVID-19 protocol and was allowed to officially join the 53-man roster.
