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].''

Have we seen Raheem Mostert in red and gold for the last time? The San Francisco 49ers running back will become a free agent after this season. He appeared in one game before suffering a knee injury and landing on injured reserve. The initial prognosis had Mostert missing about eight weeks, providing hope that the veteran running back would return this season. It wasn't long before Mostert announced that he opted for surgery, ending his 2021 campaign. "After consulting with multiple doctors and weighing my options, I will be having season-ending surgery to repair my knee," wrote Mostert via his announcement. Mostert underwent surgery this past week and



Time for Trey? Jimmy Garoppolo not on the field for 49ers' Friday practice

All eyes are on the status of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. The team is holding its final practice of the week, and it's the last chance for Garoppolo to see if he can go for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. If not, that would likely mean rookie Trey Lance is getting his first NFL start. "I think today is critical," general manager John Lynch said this morning. "If it's not today, then we go with Trey." After missing Wednesday and Thursday's sessions, multiple reports state that Garoppolo was not on the field as today's practice got underway. That likely means we'll see Lance start in his place on Sunday. Of course,



Do the 49ers have an identity crisis on offense? Joe Staley thinks so...and he's not alone

Do the San Francisco 49ers have an identity crisis on offense? Former 49ers great, and current analyst, Joe Staley, thinks so. And he's not the only one. Staley went on KNBR's Papa & Lund show on Monday to talk 49ers. In addition to saying Kyle Shanahan will likely go back to Jimmy Garoppolo in two weeks, but that the offense is more exciting with Trey Lance, Staley spent some time talking about the identity of the team. Particularly, the identity of the offense. "What's been shocking to me is that, one of the things, too, has been that stretch zone, but all the play-action roll-outs, that was one of our identities, the keep game. And it hasn't been
