Ex-49ers practice squad TE suspended for entire season originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
One former 49ers tight end received a season-long suspension Wednesday.
Chase Harrell, who played tight end on the 49ers practice squad last season, received a six-game suspension back in October for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Harrell received a second suspension Wednesday, this time for the entire season.
The undrafted rookie out of Arkansas turned some heads in training camp last season before failing to make the final 53-man roster out of camp.
Waived in April of this year by the 49ers, Harrell has been a free agent since.
It's possible that Harrell's season-long suspension was the result of a second violation of the league's performance-enhancing substance policy.
