49ers keep seven of their own on the practice squad

The 49ers have filed seven of their eight practice squad spots, keeping guys who were in camp with them already.

The list includes running back Jewel Hampton, wide receiver Chuck Jacobs, offensive tackle Carter Bykowski, guard Patrick Omameh, nose tackle Mike Purcell, cornerback Darryl Morris and safety Michael Thomas.

Hampton spent the last five weeks of last season on their active roster, and led the team in preseason rushing. He’ll get plenty of work in the next few weeks, with running back/returner LaMichael James out with a knee injury.

    I wish they had kept WR Lavelle Hawkins on their active roster

    He really stood out during the pre season

    I hope Oakland or San Diego give him a look
    He’d improve their receiving corps

    Agreed Hawkins looked good wish they had room for him. He looked better than James as KR.

    Yeah, Hawkins looked great picking up two separate 15-yard penalties on the same play. If the man can’t get his head in the right place during a job interview, then he isn’t bright enough to be on this football team.

    Agreed. Hate to lose him, but too much showboating.
