49ers promote DT Purcell


Short a defensive lineman after releasing Ray McDonald earlier this week, the San Francisco 49ers on Friday promoted nose tackle Mike Purcell from the practice squad.

Purcell, an undrafted player out of Wyoming in 2013, had spent the two last seasons on the practice squad.

McDonald was released Wednesday after he was identified as a suspect in a sexual assault case.
