Seneca Wallace's stay in San Francisco won't last long.
The 49ers intend to release Wallace and did not plan to play him in Thursday night's 41-6 preseason victory over the San Diego Chargers, Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee reported.
The news comes as no surprise. The 49ers announced Colt McCoy as the team's backup quarterback after McCoy signed a reduced contract to stay on the roster. In the end, Wallace was brought in as leverage and insurance. Look for the 49ers to keep seventh-round draft pick B.J. Daniels as their No. 3 quarterback.
UPDATE: 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said Wallace told him Friday that he's "not continuing playing football," according to Barrows. Harbaugh said he's "never seen that on a game day." Wallace did not travel to San Diego.
