The 49ers made their final two roster moves to get to 75 players on Tuesday and one of them is a big blow. Receiver Bruce Ellington (hamstring) has been placed on injured reserve, ending his season before it began. He suffered the injury against Green Bay last week and has not practiced this week. The team traded for slot receiver Jeremy Kerley earlier this week, a sign that Ellington's injury was serious. The team also released LB Jason Fanaika to get to the league-mandated 75 players before the deadline.
