49ers' Jalen Hurd: ACL tear confirmed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hurd's agent confirmed that the wideout suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's practice, Ali Thanawalla of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The 49ers were concerned that Hurd's knee injury was a torn ACL, and those fears were confirmed by the wideout's agent, Doug Hendrickson. This is unfortunate news for the football club and those in the fantasy realm who were excited to see how the versatile 6-foot-4 receiver would integrate into coach Kyle Shanahan's offensive scheme after missing the entire 2019 season due to a back injury. Hurd will undergo surgery in a couple of weeks, effectively ending his 2020 season before it could get going. Shanahan confirmed that the prospect "will be back next year." In the meantime, Trent Taylor, Dante Pettis and the recently-signed Jaron Brown will likely compete for snaps behind Kendrick Bourne, Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel (foot) when the latter returns.

49ers' Jalen Hurd: Getting tests for possible ACL tear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers are worried Hurd's knee injury is an ACL tear, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Hurd suffered the injury Sunday and is scheduled for an MRI on Monday. The 49ers already have Deebo Samuel (foot) and Richie James (wrist) absent from practice, plus Travis Benjamin opted out of the 2020 season. The team is bringing in Jaron Brown for a workout, per Garafolo.

49ers' Jalen Hurd: May have injured leg
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hurd suffered an apparent leg injury during Sunday's practice, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

While working on the side with a member of the 49ers' training staff, Hurd fell to the ground awkwardly and remained there for a few minutes before walking off the field under his own power. Neither coach Kyle Shanahan nor the 49ers have commented on the injury, so perhaps the team is waiting for the the results of upcoming exams before confirming the nature of the issue.

49ers' Jalen Hurd: Cleared from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hurd (back) has been medically cleared and resumed running this offseason, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Hurd missed all but two preseason games during his rookie campaign with a stress fracture in his lower back. The 2019 third-round pick put his red-zone abilities on display with two touchdown grabs from inside the 20 in his first exhibition action last year. Standing at 6-foot-4, Hurd is easily San Francisco's tallest receiver, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him used when the offense gets closer to the end zone. The 49ers lost Emmanuel Sanders and Marquise Goodwin this offseason, and its only significant additions were two rookies via the draft, so there is an opportunity for the unproven Hurd to carve out a role behind Deebo Samuel and Kendrick Bourne whenever the 2020 season gets rolling.

49ers' Jalen Hurd: Not fully cleared
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager John Lynch is optimistic Hurd (back) will be ready for the start of the 49ers' offseason program, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. "For [Hurd's back] to completely heal, it happens on different timelines," Lynch said Tuesday. "We found that [Hurd's] has been stubborn. We think he's been nearing towards a much better place where he'll be cleared for all activities."

A mid-February report suggested Hurd had already made a full recovery from the stress fracture in his back, but Lynch sung a different tune when he spoke to reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine. A 2019 third-round pick, Hurd made some noise in the preseason opener with a pair of touchdowns but ended up missing the entire regular season. He may get a chance to compete for a starting job in 2020, especially if Emmanuel Sanders signs with a new team.

49ers' Jalen Hurd: Healthy after lost rookie season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

49ers' Jalen Hurd: No tread in rookie season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hurd (back) didn't play in 2019.

Hurd missed the first month, but the team was optimistic he'd shake off his back injury. However, the rookie third-round pick was placed on IR on Oct. 3, and he was never activated. The 49ers clearly thought a lot of Hurd's potential, but they rode the coattails of versatile rookie wideout Deebo Samuel this year. Emmanuel Sanders will be an unrestricted free agent in March, and even if he's re-signed, Hurd should have a chance to battle Kendrick Bourne for a starting role in 2020.

49ers' Jalen Hurd: Unlikely to play this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hurd (back) is a long shot to play this season, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Hurd's rookie campaign has been plagued by a stress fracture in his lower back, which has spurred coach Kyle Shanahan to waffle a few times on his potential to suit up. A third-round pick in the 2019 draft, Hurd has six more chances in the regular season to return to full health and get the blessing of the 49ers' medical staff.

49ers' Jalen Hurd: Could return Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hurd (back) will be evaluated next week with the hope of eventually coming back from injured reserve, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Coach Kyle Shanahan wasn't as optimistic a couple weeks ago, though he never ruled out the possibility of a return. Hurd won't be eligible to play until Week 13 against Baltimore, and he's unlikely to see large snap counts on offense unless the 49ers' receiving corps is crushed by other injuries. The rookie third-round pick hasn't played in a game since preseason but was kept on the 53-man roster through Week 4.

49ers' Jalen Hurd: Suffers setback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kyle Shanahan said he's no longer as optimistic Hurd (back) will return from injured reserve, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

The 49ers were originally hoping Hurd could return from IR for Week 13's game against the Ravens, but the rookie third-round pick has suffered a setback and will target a later return. Hurd will likely be a depth receiver if he returns now that the 49ers have Emmanuel Sanders in the fold.

49ers' Jalen Hurd: Goes on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers placed Hurd (back) on injured reserve Thursday.

A third-round pick in the 2019 draft, Hurd suffered a stress reaction in his back in late August and has been in recovery mode in the meantime. According to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, Hurd "did not look good" while running before a practice last week. Considering the lack of progress in his recovery, Hurd will sit out the next eight weeks with the hope the 49ers decide to bring him back to the 53-man roster during the stretch run of the season.

49ers' Jalen Hurd: Not practicing Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hurd (back) is not practicing Monday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Hurd is working to make his season debut Week 5 versus the Browns, but he doesn't yet appear to have made tangible progress in his recovery from a stress fracture in his lower back. That said, the rookie third-round pick will have multiple opportunities to return to practice ahead of Monday's matchup versus Cleveland. Hurd's chances of taking the field will be made more clear when the 49ers' first injury report of the week is released Thursday.

49ers' Jalen Hurd: Expected to be ready after bye week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday that he expects Hurd (back) to play Week 5 against Cleveland, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

Hurd has yet to see the field this season because of a stress fracture in his lower back. According to Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News, the rookie third-round pick could return to practice next Monday in preparation for Week 5.

49ers' Jalen Hurd: Ruled out again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hurd (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Pittsburgh, with the 49ers hoping to get him back for Week 5, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

A Week 4 bye gives the rookie wide receiver a decent chance to end his streak of absences at three games. Of course, it isn't clear that Hurd will be a significant part of the offense whenever he's ready to play.

49ers' Jalen Hurd: No tangible progress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hurd (back) is not practicing Wednesday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Hurd continues to nurse a back injury sustained just ahead of San Francisco's final preseason tilt. He doesn't appear to be trending toward suiting up Week 3 versus the Steelers, in which case the rookie's NFL debut would be further delayed. A timetable for Hurd's return remains undisclosed.

49ers' Jalen Hurd: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hurd (back) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Bengals, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

The rookie third-round pick will continue to put off his NFL debut as he battles a back injury he suffered before the final preseason game. Hurd still isn't practicing, which is an unfavorable sign for him to return for Week 3 versus the Steelers, but he wasn't initially placed on injured reserve, so his absence shouldn't extend far into October.

September 11, 2019 04:32 PM
49ers' Jalen Hurd: Still not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hurd (back) didn't practice Wednesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Hurd sat out Sunday's season-opening win over the Buccaneers and appears in danger of missing additional time due to the back injury. A long-term absence could significantly hamper Hurd's chances of securing a role in San Francisco's offense as a rookie, even once he's healthy again. Of course, it's a positive sign that Hurd has at least avoided injured reserve to this point.

49ers' Jalen Hurd: Won't make regular-season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hurd (back) is out for Sunday's game in Tampa Bay, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Hurd was never expected to play and didn't log any practice participation during the week. He's in danger of missing time beyond the regular-season opener, with no assurance of a significant role once he's healthy. That said, the 49ers thus far have opted not to place the rookie third-round pick on injured reserve.

49ers' Jalen Hurd: Multi-game absence possible
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hurd (back) is in danger of missing multiple games after coach Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday that the rookie as "week-to-week as opposed to day-to-day," Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Shanahan wouldn't elaborate on an injury that previously has been termed "back tightness," but the wideout nonetheless is deemed "doubtful" to play Sunday in Tampa Bay. The 49ers' receiving group will also be without Trent Taylor (foot), leaving Dante Pettis (groin), Marquise Goodwin, Kendrick Bourne, Deebo Samuel and Richie James as the candidates for targets from Jimmy Garoppolo.

49ers' Jalen Hurd: Unlikely to play Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday that Hurd (back) is considered "week-to-week" and is expected to miss Sunday's contest against the Buccaneers, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Hurd was initially labeled day-to-day with a back injury, but Shanahan's comments suggest the rookie hasn't progressed the way the 49ers had hoped. While Hurd still looks on track to avoid placement on injured reserve, a precise timetable for his return to full health isn't available.
