Carlos Hyde tore his MCL and will miss remaining game

Dec 25, 2016 at 2:17 PM--


On Saturday, San Francisco 49ers running back Carlos Hyde came within 12 yards of reaching his first career 1,000-yard season. He would have become the 11th player in 49ers franchise history to accomplish the feat. Now, he will likely have to wait until next season to try again.

Hyde had an MRI today to access the extent of the injury that he suffered during the 49ers' victory against the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday. According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Hyde tore his MCL and will miss the team's final game of the season.


Hyde was hit by cornerback E.J. Gaines following a catch. The hit caused the 49ers running back to fumble the football and Rams defensive lineman Morgan Fox recovered. The Rams would score on the ensuing drive to take a 14-point lead, but San Francisco came storming back to win 22-21.

Following the play, Hyde needed assistance to leave the field and then left for the 49ers locker room to be evaluated. He was walking under his own power, but with a limp.

"I'm praying it's not serious," Hyde had told reporters following the win at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. "It didn't feel that bad. It was pain but I've felt worse. That's why I was able to get up and walk off on my own."

In the first quarter, quarterback Colin Kaepernick connected with Hyde on a 19-yard touchdown pass. It was Hyde's third touchdown reception of the season and the most by a 49ers running back since Frank Gore had three in 2009.

The first three rounds of the 2021 NFL Draft are in the books, and the San Francisco 49ers have added three offensive players and one defender. The team made quarterback Trey Lance of North Dakota State the No. 3 overall pick on Thursday night. On Friday night, the Niners traded back in the second round, eventually selecting offensive lineman Aaron Banks of Notre Dame. Later, in the third round, the team traded up to select running back Trey Sermon of Ohio State and then used its compensatory pick on cornerback Ambry Thomas of Michigan. Trades left San Francisco without fourth- or seventh-round picks, but the team still has four remaining selections. Below is a rundown of the 49ers' selections entering Day 3. The Niners' first selection is currently slated to be



QB Trey Lance looking to start his 49ers career off by watching and learning

Now that Trey Lance is a member of the San Francisco 49ers, the question becomes when he'll get his chance to see the field. But for now, Lance doesn't seem to be thinking that far ahead and is instead focusing on getting his feet wet in the Bay Area. In particular, Lance is looking forward to getting to know his teammates, including current starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, and learning everything he can about his new team and his new home. Lance spoke to 49ers beat reporters for the first time Thursday night after the team made him the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Lance was asked if he expected a similar situation as the one he experienced in college at North Dakota State, where he spent time on the sidelines before taking over the starting



49ers' Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch talk Jimmy Garoppolo, Richard Sherman, and Nick Mullens

Jimmy Garoppolo's days with the San Francisco 49ers may be numbered. He will likely remain with the team through the 2021 season. However, after drafting Trey Lance of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick, it is clear that a change is on the horizon for the Niners. While most felt that might create an awkward situation in the quarterback room, Garoppolo has made the best of it. In fact, Garoppolo was the first 49ers player who reached out to Lance after the incoming rookie heard his name called in Cleveland, Ohio. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch spoke to the media on Friday night after the team was done making its Day 2 picks. They were asked if they spoke with Garoppolo after selecting Lance. Obviously, the quarterback knew the

When longtime 49ers beat reporter Matt Barrows of The Athletic makes a guess this close to the draft on which player the team will select at pick three, it's certainly worthy of attention. But, in this case, Barrows might not know more than most people when it comes to what the 49ers will do, even though the draft is six days away. Barrows made his most recent selection for the 49ers in a recent beat reporter mock draft published by The Athletic. His pick was quarterback Mac Jones of Alabama, which is not the result many 49ers fans are hoping to see. Barrows talked about his choice
