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].''

49ers rookie Kalia Davis not molding his game after D.J. Jones

The San Francisco 49ers begin their rookie minicamp on Friday afternoon, giving fans and media their first look at the nine rookies the team drafted, as well as the undrafted free agents the team signed or invited to camp. One player that likely will not participate in team drills is sixth-round defensive tackle Kalia Davis, who is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered last fall, which likely played a role in his falling draft stock. Davis has had an intriguing journey, playing linebacker during his freshman season before transitioning to the defensive line, which he attributed to his bigger size. "Well really, I moved from linebacker to D-lineman because my body was changing," Davis said. "I [gained] a little too much weight. The biggest part about



I'm not worried about 49ers' Trey Lance...and you shouldn't be either

By Marc Adams

San Francisco 49ers fans are fed up, and rightfully so, at the way the team's young quarterback Trey Lance is being treated in the media. For months now, there have been rumors and statements, mostly from national media types, designating Lance a bust, or suggesting the 49ers are concerned about him. As you'll recall, Lance only played ten quarters of football last season. Can ten quarters really tell us anything? Of course not. Especially when it comes to NFL rookies trying to play QB. It's baffling that this agenda is being pushed. But the ferocity at which it keeps coming is disturbing. Either the 49ers are allowing it because they believe it somehow gives them a competitive advantage, or they're pushing it to keep Jimmy Garopollo a hot commodity on the trade



Simms doubts 49ers' decision to draft Trey Lance: 'I'm not sold on his potential'

The San Francisco 49ers' second-year quarterback, Trey Lance, has been the target of much scrutiny this offseason. A lot of it seems based on the team's decision to hold onto veteran Jimmy Garoppolo without fully considering why. Garoppolo remains on the 49ers roster because no one has made a trade offer, not necessarily because the coaches doubt Lance's readiness. Of course, that could be speculation too. However, it's based on the narrative the 49ers have laid out and not the narrative created by the national media. Speaking of national media, Chris Simms of NBC Sports created some chatter after ranking Lance at No. 31 in his top 40 quarterback ranking. His
