The 49ers have kept running backs Trey Sermon and Jordan Mason on their initial 53-player roster, cutting JaMycal Hasty.

That leaves Elijah Mitchell, Jeff Wilson Jr., Sermon, Tyrion Davis-Price and Mason in their running backs room, at least for now.

Sermon, a third-round selection in 2021, was on the roster bubble.

The 49ers announced they released tight end Troy Fumagalli, safety Tashaun Gipson Sr., cornerback Dontae Johnson, receiver Marcus Johnson, tight end Tyler Kroft, offensive lineman Jordan Mills, receiver Willie Snead IV, defensive lineman Akeem Spence, quarterback Nate Sudfeld, defensive lineman Kemoko Turay, receiver Malik Turner and defensive lineman Jordan Willis.

They waived defensive lineman Kevin Atkins, defensive lineman Alex Barrett, cornerback Tariq Castro-Fields, offensive lineman Alfredo Gutierrez, safety Tayler Hawkins, cornerback Qwuantrezz Knight, receiver Tay Martin, linebacker Marcelino McCrary-Ball, linebacker Segun Olubi, offensive lineman Jason Poe, offensive lineman Justin Skule and offensive lineman Keaton Sutherland.

  1. Sermon is easily the worst of the 5 kept RB’s. Surprised they didn’t keep Hasty over him for a scat back option. Watch out for Jordan Mason. Big, powerful, one-cut back that perfectly fits the system.

  2. These clowns released Jordan Willis? He has done nothing but ball out and is depth behind their injured pass rushers. What are they thinking?

  3. Willis and Kroft are part of the Shanahan Shake deal where they sign tomorrow after Jimmy Ward and Curtis Robinson are put on IR.

  4. Surprised they didn’t keep Hasty over him for a scat back option.

    Hasty is too tiny and Sermon and Mason can catch the football.
