SANTA CLARA – The 49ers filled their 53rd and final roster spot with the promotion of cornerback Leon McFadden.
McFadden (5 foot 10, 190 pounds) signed with the 49ers’ practice on Sept. 15 after being released by the New York Jets. He spent 11 days with the Jets after being claimed off waivers from the Cleveland Browns. As a rookie in 2013 from San Diego State, McFadden saw action in 16 games with two starts for the Browns. Cleveland acquired McFadden with the sixth pick of the third round (No. 68 overall) last year.
Tramaine Brock (toe) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams. It’s uncertain whether McFadden will be active for the game.
