49ers’ Waive RB Jarryd Hayne, Activate RB Kendall Gaskins To Active Roster



The San Francisco 49ers gave rookie RB Jarryd Hayne the boot this Halloween, as the Australian Rugby League star was waived this afternoon.

Hayne, who was by far the team’s most explosive player on the 49ers roster, had fumbling problems in the return game, but his upside was too good to be ignored.

In six games, Hayne touched the ball a total of 16 times including; 8 punts for 76 yards (37) and eight carries for 25 rushing yards.

With Hayne’s release, that opened the door for RB Kendall Gaskins who was promoted from the team’s practice squad.
