The 49ers announced Monday that they have moved RB Jewel Hampton to the reserve/non-football injury list and LB Darius Fleming to the reserve/physically unable to perform list.

That means that both players will not count against the active roster, and will not be eligible to practice until at least the Tuesday following the completion of Week Six of the NFL regular season.

The team also waived the following 12 players: FB Cameron Bell, OLB Kourtnei Brown, DT Patrick Butrym, WR Ben Hannula, WR Joe Hastings, DT Matthew Masifilo, CB Cory Nelms, CB Deante’ Purvis, TE Joe Sawyer, OL Jason Slowey, K Giorgio Tavecchio and WR Brian Tyms.
