The San Francisco 49ers are signing free agent offensive lineman Senio Kelemete, NFL Network reported Friday.

The versatile veteran has made 42 career starts at multiple positions, including five starts (14 games) at left guard with the Houston Texans in 2020.

The 49ers lost backup tackle Justin Skule to a torn ACL earlier this week.

Kelemete, 31, was originally a fifth-round pick of the Arizona Cardinals in 2012.

He appeared in one game with Arizona in 2012, 57 games (22 starts) with the New Orleans Saints from 2014-17, and 30 games (20 starts) with the Texans from 2018-20.
