Carlos Hyde returns to practice for 49ers
by Shawn Krest |

49ers running back Carlos Hyde returned to practice on Friday, for the last practice of the team's three-week OTA session. 

Hyde had missed practice time due to a minor leg injury. 

"He's feeling good," Coach Jim Tomsula said, per ESPN. "I actually went in and said, 'We don't need to go today.' Carlos hasn't missed a meeting ... he's been here every day. It's just more of, Let's just make it perfect."

Niners RBs Kendall Hunter, Carlos Hyde vying for featured role
by Marty Gitlin |

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.

49ers' Carlos Hyde unable to practice, Mike Davis does
by Jason Butt |

49ers second-year running back Carlos Hyde was forced to watch Thursday's OTA practice from the sidelines, according to the San Jose Mercury News

Hyde is dealing with a leg injury that isn't considered serious. 

Rookie running back Mike Davis did practice despite injuring his thumb on Wednesday after catching a pass from Colin Kaepernick. 

“Kap, man, I didn’t know he could throw a ball that fast,” Davis said. “I still caught it.”

49ers Carlos Hyde sorry to see Frank Gore leave
by Shawn Krest |

Frank Gore left the 49ers for the Colts, giving Carlos Hyde a chance to replace him as starting running back. Despite the opportunity, Hyde isn't happy about the change. 

"I wanted him to come back," Hyde said, per  "When I found out he wasn't coming back, I was like, 'Are you really leaving?' I was shocked."

"I wasn't expecting to come in and take Frank Gore's spot," Hyde added. "It was more of a, 'Come in and learn from Frank Gore.' That's exactly what I did."

The biggest thing he learned from his year with Gore was not to be in a hurry to make plays. "Be patient on runs, let the play develop and not be so quick," he said. "I felt like last year I was being too quick on plays and not letting them develop. I was missing reads."

49ers RB Carlos Hyde down to 220 pounds
by Jason Butt |

49ers general manager Trent Baalke said running back Carlos Hyde has trimmed down to around 220 pounds so far this offseason, according to the Sacramento Bee

Hyde was listed at 235 pounds during the 2014 season, which would mean Hyde has lost somewhere int he area of 15 pounds. Baalke said that Hyde hasn't been in the 220 range since his early days in college at Ohio State and that he's looking "extremely good."

Hyde will compete with Reggie Bush for starting tailback duties this preseason, though both should contribute quite a bit in the 49ers' backfield. Bush, 30, was signed by the 49ers after the Lions released him this offseason.
