"The left knee, it feels like nothing ever happened," Lattimore said. "The right knee, it feels great. Both feel balanced. I've got my speed and I rarely get any soreness" after workouts.
Lattimore can't wait for April 21, the start of offseason workouts. The 2013 fourth-round pick wants to vindicate the 49ers for their patience with him.
"I was just so grateful they believed in what I could do," Lattimore said.
“Mentally was the biggest thing for me, understanding the offense,” Lattimore said. “They showed me how to play the game, honestly. I’m real excited about next year.”
Lattimore will compete with Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter, LaMichael James and possibly Jewel Hampton, a practice squad member, for playing time next season, the report said.
"They haven’t cleared me yet, but these next two, three weeks, I think they’re going to look at it," he said. "They really haven’t given me an indication or anything set in stone. I know I’ll most likely get a chance to practice."
The 49ers have until Week 11 to decide whether or not Lattimore can practice. If he can, then the 49ers get three more weeks to decide to activate him or leave him on the NFI list for the rest of the year.
"I’m ready to do whatever," Lattimore said. "They’re taking care of me. That’s the biggest thing, giving me all the time I need, but I’m ready to get out there."
