QB - FA
This Week Outlook
The 49ers signed QB Kurt Benkert to the practice squad on Wednesday.
This comes as the corresponding move to Trey Lance (ankle) officially being placed on Injured Reserve. Having spent time on the Packers, Benkert figures to hold a similar role with the 49ers quarterback room as a depth option.
Kurt Benkert was activated off the practice squad reserve/COVID-19 list, with the news of Blake Bortles being released today.
Benkert being activated by the team officially ends the Blake Bortles era in Green Bay.
