Carlos Hyde’s “MCL sprain” will not require surgery

Dec 26, 2016 at 12:30 PM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly met with the media today and gave an update on the injury that RB Carlos Hyde suffered on Saturday. Kelly said that the injury was an MCL sprain and that it would not require surgery. However, Hyde will miss the 49ers' finale on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.

"Carlos has an MCL sprain," said Kelly. "It's a non-surgical deal but he'll be out for a couple of weeks so he'll be unavailable this week."

"The fact that it's a non-surgical thing is the thing that's positive," Kelly continued. "It's unfortunate we won't have him for Seattle but it was good news for Carlos."

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.

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.



The Seahawks may be without starting running back Thomas Rawls when they face the 49ers due to a shoulder injury.

"I don't know that yet," Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said on ESPN 710 when asked if Rawls could play. Rawls had not yet had an MRI to determine the severity of the injury.

"I don't think it's bad,'' Carroll said, via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. "But he did get banged [on the shoulder].''

The San Francisco 49ers currently sit at the bottom of the NFC West standings with a 4-6 record. The Athletic recently projected Kyle Shanahan's squad's chances of reaching the playoffs as a Wildcard at 6 percent. That's analytics for you. Shanahan doesn't really concern himself with computers trying to tell him what is likely or unlikely to occur. The coach joined KNBR on Wednesday and was asked if hearing his team's slim chances of reaching postseason play is disheartening. "The analytics doesn't bum me out," Shanahan responded on the Murph & Mac show. The 49ers coach has a different way of looking at the situation. The NFL season,

Rich Eisen 'not ready to sleep' on the 49ers and their playoff chances

By David Bonilla

While many have given up on the San Francisco 49ers and the team's playoff chances, Rich Eisen hasn't. The host of The Rich Eisen Show feels Kyle Shanahan's squad still has a good shot at making a run during these final six games of the regular season and perhaps surprising some people. Eisen's hot take during his "4 Downs with Rich" segment saw the 49ers, not the 4-6 Minnesota Vikings or Detroit Lions, as a team that can sneak into postseason play as the seventh seed and make things uncomfortable for an opponent. "I am not done with them yet," said Eisen. "The 49ers are coming off their bye this week, Thanksgiving week. They're coming back, and they're taking on the Rams, who have a short week. "I don't know. The 49ers can come in there,
