    49ers RB Marcus Lattimore announces retirement

    49ers running back Marcus Lattimore said he's retiring from football because he's been unable to get his knee "fully back to the level the NFL demands." Lattimore suffered serious knee injuries in 2011 and 2012 while playing for South Carolina. "After prayer and careful consideration, I have decided it's time to end my professional football career," Lattimore said in a statement. "I have given my heart and soul to the game that I love, and it's time for me to move on to the next chapter of my life and help others. I have given every ounce of my energy toward making a full recovery from my knee injury, and I have made a lot of progress. Unfortunately, getting my knee fully back to the level the NFL demands has proven to be insurmountable." Lattimore began practicing with the 49ers last week but experienced soreness and was not able to continue. South Carolina's all-time leader in rushing touchdowns (38) and total touchdowns (41), Lattimore never got to play a snap in the NFL.

    49ers coach Harbaugh: Marcus Lattimore still weighing his options

Lattimore experienced soreness in his surgically-repaired knee in two practices last week, and as a result, he's considering whether to continue moving forward with his comeback attempt from a major knee injury. In 2011, Lattimore suffered a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee and in 2012, he suffered three torn knee ligaments and a dislocated kneecap in his right knee while playing for the University of South Carolina.

    Agent: No decision has been made about Marcus Lattimore's future

    The Marcus Lattimore rumor mill heightened Monday morning as speculation about his NFL future picked up across the Internet. The Lattimore rumors first started Sunday evening when a report from CSNBayArea.com surfaced about the 49ers running back contemplating retirement as he experienced soreness in his surgically-repaired knee in two practices last week. Lattimore is attempting to return from a major knee injury he suffered in college in 2012. The retirement speculation took off Monday morning when ESPN reported a league source said Lattimore is expected to retire. Lattimore's agent, Michael Perrett, was quick to squash that rumor, as he posted on Twitter that no decision has been made about his client's NFL future. NFL.com joined the fray as well by reporting Lattimore will meet with trainers and doctors Monday to figure out the reason for Lattimore's knee soreness. Lattimore is not believed to have suffered any structural damage in his knee since returning to practice last week, according to The Sacramento Bee. Lattimore has suffered major injuries to both knees. In 2011, he tore the ACL and MCL in his left knee. In 2012, he suffered three torn knee ligaments and a dislocated kneecap in his right knee, which required reconstructive surgery. Lattimore has yet to take a snap in the NFL since being a fourth-round pick in 2013.
