Whoever’s playing quarterback for the 49ers could use all the help he could get.
So while their latest addition won’t help with the protection issues, he might do something for the passing game.
They were short at the position after putting Pierre Garcon on injured reserve. Murphy was in camp with them this summer, but hasn’t played in a regular season game since he tore his ACL while playing for the Buccaneers in 2015.

49ers WR Pierre Garcon (neck) did not practice Wednesday. Garcon didn’t play much after halftime last week after suffering the neck injury, so we’ll keep an eye on his practice participation for the remainder of the week.
Seems like Garcon is OK, but as we've said many times we can't trust what a player says about his status when it comes to an injury. Continue to monitor this week.

Equally puzzling was Jay Gruden’s limited use of Josh Doctson, the Redskins’ first-round draft pick in 2016 who was projected to be such a difference-maker that the front office let two of Cousins’s more reliable targets, DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon, depart in free agency.
Doctson was on the field for just 20 of the team’s 63 offensive snaps Sunday and was never targeted on a throw. Pressed Monday about Doctson’s limited workload, Gruden indicated that he felt the former No. 1 pick still needed to “earn” the right to get game-day opportunities.
Gruden added he thinks Doctson is ready to go, but said he has to play well to earn more time. Doctson hasn't practiced a whole lot between this season and last season, Gruden also pointed out. Gruden did add Doctson will get more work this week.
Garcon turns 31 in August, but is coming off a season where he caught 79 passes for 1,041 yards and three touchdowns. In fact, he has at least 68 catches in four straight seasons. In San Francisco, he’ll be reunited with his former offensive coordinator, Kyle Shanahan. In Shanahan’s last year in Washington, Garcon caught 113 passes for 1,346 yards and five scores. He’s four years older now, but should still see heavy volume playing for Shanahan.

Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 11. It looks like Jackson may be able to make his return this week against the Packers, though he’s still iffy. If he’s out, Jamison Crowder, Pierre Garcon and Vernon Davis all get a bump.

Redskins WR DeSean Jackson (shoulder) took limited practice reps Wednesday. t looks like Jackson may be able to make his return this week against the Packers. If he does play, it would downgrade Jamison Crowder, Pierre Garcon and Vernon Davis from their current spots in our rankings.
