SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP)The San Francisco 49ers have signed tackle Sam Young to a one-year deal and placed receiver Trent Taylor on injured reserve.

The Niners made the move to bring back Young on Friday after losing starting left tackle Joe Staley to a broken leg last week. Staley is expected to miss at least six weeks.

Taylor has been sidelined with a foot injury since training camp but was originally projected to return early in the season. Taylor now must miss at least eight more weeks after being placed on IR and the earliest he will be able to return is for the game Nov. 17 against Arizona.

Young has played 88 games with 21 starts since entering the league in 2010. He spent time with the 49ers in training camp before getting cut before the start of the season.

Rookie Justin Skule is slated to start in Staley’s place this week against Pittsburgh.
