It appears likely Carlos Hyde won't be in the lineup for the San Francisco 49ers this week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as he continues to nurse a shoulder injury.
Hyde had his arm in a sling during practice on Tuesday and reportedly was in the same state during practice on Wednesday. 49ers head coach Chip Kelly didn't sound optimistic for Hyde's chances of playing against the Buccaneers Sunday.
"He's not going to go (today)," Kelly said. "We'll monitor him during the week, but I think he'll be a stretch to play this week."
Either Mike Davis or Shaun Draughn would get the start in Hyde's place. The 49ers could call up running back DuJuan Harris from the practice squad to provide depth if Hyde can't play, but that decision won't be made until the end of the week.
"We have no idea what's going to happen between the next couple of days of training," Kelly said. "You like to be able to get DuJuan up if Carlos isn't going to be able to go at all because you want to have three backs on game day, but you also don't know what happens at any other position, so you wait until you get to the end of the week and we've got the bulk of our training done and know who's healthy. Whatever maneuver we make probably won't be done until Saturday."
Hyde suffered the injury in San Francisco's 45-16 loss at Buffalo on Sunday.
