The 49ers will work out veteran cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick on Friday, NFL Media's Ian Rapoport reported Thursday, citing a source.

Kirkpatrick, 31, played eight seasons for the Cincinnati Bengals before spending last season with the Arizona Cardinals.

The 49ers opened training camp this week with cornerback Emmanuel Moseley and safety Jaquiski Tartt on the COVID list. With Moseley out, Tim Harris took the first-team reps Wednesday with mixed results.

San Francisco has Harris, Donte Johnson and rookies Ambry Thomas and Demmodore Lenoir on the roster, but it's easy to see why the 49ers might want another veteran corner in camp, especially with Moseley unavailable for now.

Kirkpatrick recently worked out for the New England Patriots, Rapoport reported.

Kirkpatrick has started 78 games in his nine-year NFL career and notched 13 interceptions.

The 49ers re-signed Moseley, Jason Verrett and nickel back K'Waun Williams this offseason, but Kirkpatrick could provide some secondary depth as camp gets underway.
