The 49ers made several roster moves on Friday, including waiving pass-rusher Takkarist McKinley, who failed a physical with the organization. McKinley was claimed off waivers from the Cincinnati Bengals this week, which also had waived the defensive lineman after failing a physical there, NBC Sports Bayarea reports.

McKinley has 17.5 career sacks since being drafted in the first round of the 2017 draft by the Atlanta Falcons, and was hoping to help a decimated 49ers defensive line which has placed four players on injured reserve this season. McKinley's agent told NBC Sports Bay Area's Jennifer Lee Chan he was confident his client would pass the physical.

“Honestly we were surprised he failed in Cincinnati,” Tollner said of McKinley on Thursday. “He had the medical exam with the 49ers today, and then has to go through the COVID protocols. The earliest he can be at the facility is next week.”
