The San Francisco 49ers placed cornerback Eric Wright on the reserve non-football injury/illness list this week. The designation allows the 49ers to keep Wright without using up a valuable roster spot until at least Nov. 11 depending on when he can return to practice.
The 49ers attempted to acquire Wright three times in the past year. The team originally pursued Wright in free agency a year ago. It unsuccessfully attempted a trade earlier this off season. The third time proved to be the charm when San Francisco signed the cornerback upon his release by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The team does have plans for Wright once he's fully healthy and back on the field.
