Santa Clara, CA – The San Francisco 49ers promoted wide receiver Joe Hastings to the active roster on Saturday.
The 49ers needed to add a wide receiver after getting rid of Braylon Edwards on Tuesday.
Originally signed by the 49ers as an undrafted free agent on July 27, 2011, Hastings was released following training camp and was signed to San Francisco's practice squad on September 4.
The 49ers (12-3) can secure the No. 2 seed and a first-round bye in the playoffs with a victory.
