Hasty (ankle) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Hasty already has logged a pair of three-game absences this season, but he may be setting himself up for a return following Wednesday's practice. The 49ers could certainly use Hasty as another depth option in a backfield with Raheem Mostert (knee) out for the season and Trey Sermon potentially headed for injured reserve due to a sprained ankle. Having said that, Elijah Mitchell is the 49ers' clear lead runner, and Jeff Wilson also is around for complementary work whenever Hasty is deemed ready to play again.
