  • SAN FRANCISCO — The San Francisco 49ers released wide receiver and return man Kyle Williams on Tuesday after three-plus seasons, while also waiving cornerback Perrish Cox.
    Linebacker Nick Moody was activated from the injured reserve/designated for return list Tuesday. The rookie returned to practice Oct. 23 for the first time since Week 1, when he went on injured reserve with the designation to return after breaking his hand. Moody is a sixth-round draft pick who transitioned from playing safety.
    Williams' agent, Wynn Silberman, was told of the move Tuesday by the reigning NFC champions.
    Williams missed last season's run to the Super Bowl — a 34-31 loss to the Ravens — because of a serious knee injury but remained a key member of the team and was honored with the team's Ed Block Courage Award.
    San Francisco (6-3) is looking for more production in the passing game, and Williams had fallen on the depth chart with the return of Mario Manningham for Sunday's 10-9 loss to the Carolina Panthers.
