SANTA CLARA One thing is clear from Kyle Shanahan’s early tenure with the 49ers — few players should feel comfortable with their roster spots, even the ones who were recently signed.

The team this week has parted ways with at least two who fit that category: running back DuJuan Harris, who was re-signed as a free agent in late March, and receiver K.D. Cannon, whom the 49ers landed as a priority undrafted free agent last week. Cannon was given a $45,000 guarantee to sign with San Francisco.

Both players presumably were waived to make room for tryout players who made a strong impression during the 49ers’ recent rookie minicamp. It’s not known yet who those players are and whether more cuts will be made this week.

Harris appeared in 10 games for the 49ers in 2016, running the ball 38 times for 138 yards while catching eight passes for 115 yards. The 49ers recently drafted Joe Williams in the fourth round and added another runner after the draft, Matt Breida from Georgia Southern.
