Sources: Carlos Hyde expects to play Sunday against Cardinals

Nov 12, 2016 at 10:11 PM--


San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde has missed two games with a sprained AC joint that he suffered during the third quarter of the team's October 16 loss to the Buffalo Bills. He has been limited in practices for the past two weeks and was listed as Questionable on Friday's injury report.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Hyde expects to play on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, per sources.


During practices, Hyde has been wearing a blue non-contact jersey to protect his shoulder. How did he feel earlier this week? "A lot better this week than last week," Hyde said on Thursday. "Today I participated in the whole practice. Things went good and things are heading in a good direction. So hopefully things stay on track, nothing takes me off track leading up to Sunday. There's a good chance I will be out there."

Head coach Chip Kelly has stated that Hyde's availability for Sunday's game will be determined by the 49ers medical staff and not the coaches. News that he expects to play might indicate that the information that he is receiving from the team is positive.

We'll find out about 90 minutes prior to kickoff when the official list of inactive players is reported.

"I'm pretty happy, I would say," Kittle responded when asked about his excitement level for playing this weekend. "Just a breath of fresh air, honestly. It feels good to be back on the football field with our boys. I love our performance staff. They do a fantastic

It was a tough break for San Francisco 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell. After dealing with an injury-plagued rookie campaign in 2021, the second-year player suffered an MCL sprain against the Chicago Bears last weekend. Mitchell was lucky that was all the injury was. The way he got hurt, some feared the worst. It wasn't season-ending, but Mitchell will still miss about two months. As one might expect, the injury was emotional for Mitchell. He was eager to put his injuries behind him and prove his worth in 2022. "He was ready to go," head coach Kyle Shanahan shared with NBC Sports Bay Area this week. "Everyone could see that early in the game. I mean, if he would have stayed in that game and stayed healthy, I wouldn't have put 200 yards out of the
