49ers cut WR Jeremy Kerley, DL Quinton Dial to get to 53

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) The San Francisco 49ers have cut last season’s leading receiver Jeremy Kerley to get down to the 53-man limit.

Kerley joined defensive lineman Quinton Dial as veterans cut Saturday as the Niners look to get younger in the first year of a rebuilding plan under coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch.

The 49ers also placed projected starting guard Joshua Garnett, fourth-round running back Joe Williams, receiver Aaron Burbridge, defensive lineman Chris Jones and defensive back Don Jones on season-ending injured reserve.
