San Francisco 49er Clear Wide Receiver for Divisional Round

The San Francisco 49ers will have a full complement of pass catchers for their Divisional Round matchup with the Dallas Cowboys. The team declined to give wide receiver Jauan Jennings a designation on their final injury reports, indicating he is fully cleared to play.

Jennings logged limited participations in two practices this week and has been reduced to 26 offensive snaps over each of his past two games. He had worked his way into a starting role late in the regular season, tallying 46+ snaps per game from Week 15 to 17.

Jennings was the 49ers' 217th pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. After failing to play a snap as a rookie, he emerged as a reliable third wide receiver option in 2021, nabbing 24 receptions for 296 yards and five touchdowns. His role grew in 2022: he ranked fifth on the team this season in receptions (35) and yards (416)

Jennings will likely serve as valuable depth on Sunday as the 49ers' WR3. He'll likely fall behind wide receivers Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk, as well as tight end George Kittle and running back Christian McCaffrey, in targets. The fact that he'll be such a low priority against the Cowboys speaks to the potency of the 49ers' roster.
