49ers waive Brandon Carswell


Wide receiver Brandon Carswell, who spent the 2013 season on injured reserve with the 49ers, was waived Friday, the club said.

A USC product, the 24-year-old Carswell suffered a torn ACL in his first day with the 49ers last June.

According to the NFL’s Friday transactions, Carswell was waived without any designation, so his departure was not connected to a failed physical.

Carswell signed with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent in 2012 and spent training camp and the preseason with the club. He also had a brief stint on the club’s practice squad.

The 49ers have 73 players on the roster, including nine wide receivers.
