49ers' Jalen Hurd: Healthy after lost rookie season
Hurd has made a full recovery from the back injury that sidelined him for his entire rookie season, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
The third-round pick should be ready for the start of the 49ers' offseason program in April after failing to see any action in 2019 upon suffering the injury in the preseason. With Emmanuel Sanders scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent, it isn't out of the question for Hurd to compete for a starting job at receiver, though a backup role seems more likely. Listed at 6-foot-4, 230 pounds, Hurd played running back for most of his college career and has been discussed as a potential tight end, but the Niners seem to view him as an oversized wide receiver.
