    The Saints placed Hunter (undisclosed) on injured reserve Friday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Hunter came down with an unknown injury in Thursday's practice, which was serious enough to impact his Week 17 availability. Instead, the Saints will trust in Tim Hightower and Travaris Cadet to head the backfield in Sunday's season finale at Atlanta.

Among those on injured reserve are Mark Ingram (shoulder), Khiry Robinson (leg), and Marcus Murphy (ankle). While Hunter's last NFL carry occurred in 2013, he could spell Tim Hightower when he requires a respite over the last three games.

    49ers RB Kendall Hunter says his knee is feeling good

    After missing the entire 2014 season with a torn ACL, 49ers running back Kendall Hunter appears to be over the injury, reports the team's official website. "He's coming along great," coach Jim Tomsula said. "I think we all have strong feelings for Kendall… but we definitely have a rep count on him. You've got to keep him corralled, but he's moving around really quick." While Kendall is still receiving treatment on the knee, he said it's mostly just for maintenance purposes. "Once you hurt something, you nurse it even if it isn't hurt," he said. "Just to stay healthy and be ready to go."

    Niners RBs Kendall Hunter, Carlos Hyde vying for featured role

    From 2006 through last year, there was no question about who would assume the featured back role for the 49ers. It was Frank Gore. Period. Times have changed. Gore has moved on to Indianapolis. Second-year back Carlos Hyde is his heir apparent, but the job will not be handed to him on a silver platter. The team added Reggie Bush in free agency, drafted Mike Davis in the fourth round and still has Kendall Hunter. The latter is intriguing. He sat out 2014 with a torn ACL, but rushed for more yards in each of his first three seasons than the 333 Hyde recorded last year. And Hunter is fully recovered. "He's coming along great," Jim Tomsula told "I think we all have strong feelings for Kendall. You see him out there moving. He's moving around great. But we definitely have a rep count on him. ... You've got to keep him corralled. But he's moving around really quick." Hunter has 1,202 yards (4.6 average) and seven touchdowns in 43 career games. Tomsula believes the 49ers are covered at running back no matter who emerges to earn the bulk of the work. "I'm not talking depth charts or anything right now, but they're all getting after it." All except Hyde, who has been sidelined for a couple weeks with a minor pull in his leg (not his hamstring). Tomsula said if it were the regular season, he would be active.

    Tomsula: Reggie Bush can be 'an every-down back'

    The 49ers didn't sign running back Reggie Bush to be "a gadget guy," coach Jim Tomsula told reporters, per the San Jose Mercury News. "Reggie Bush is a running back, and I'm really excited about Reggie joining the crew." Added Tomsula: "Reggie can be an every down back. He's done that in the NFL, OK? I don't know [that] we're looking that way. Reggie is a very good space player, OK? Reggie can, it's well documented, his skil set on third down. Reggie, I mean, he's a running back." Bush joins Carlos Hyde and Kendall Hunter in the backfield. The 30-year-old Bush was released after two seasons with the Lions.
