San Francisco adds Alfred Morris to injured backfield

The San Francisco 49ers have signed free agent running back Alfred Morris on Monday.

What It Means:

With Jerick McKinnon banged up and Matt Breida out the rest of the preseason, the Niners needed to add some depth to the backfield for training camp. Morris is familiar with head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense from their time in Washington together, but will likely only make the final 53-man roster if McKinnon or Breida suffer a setback.

Our models project Morris for just 68.3 total yards on 12.9 touches this season.
