The 49ers announced Monday they have signed cornerback Dax Swanson to the practice squad.

Swanson (5-11, 191) originally signed with the Indianapolis Colts as an undrafted free agent on April 30, 2013. He was placed on injured reserve following training camp and later waived by the Colts on October 29, 2013.

The 49ers are in need of another cornerback to practice. Tarell Brown was in obvious discomfort – and appeared to have difficulty breathing -- after Sunday's game with a ribs injury that knocked him out in the second quarter. Cornerback Perrish Cox was released last week. 

Head coach Jim Harbaugh said he had no official update on Brown's condition.
