Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The 49ers are going to try and sneak injured tailback Kendall Hunter through waivers and onto injured reserve. San Francisco waived Hunter with an “injured” designation on Monday, per the NFL’s transactions.

Hunter suffered an ACL tear in late July — an injury that likely ends his 2014 season. Also, he’s an unrestricted free agent at season’s end. In short, any team adding Hunter via waivers might not have him for a single snap this year and could lose him next offseason.

Fantasy Impact: 

By waiving the 25-year-old Hunter, the 49ers can conceivably use his roster spot to add another player as the preseason begins. However, they also risk a team snapping up Hunter, a solid reserve tailback when healthy.
