49ers place Carlos Hyde on IR, claim DL Zach Moore

Dec 27, 2016 at 2:11 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have officially announced that they have placed RB Carlos Hyde on injured reserve. To take his place on the roster, the team has claimed DL Zach Moore.

On Saturday, Hyde suffered an MCL sprain against the Los Angeles Rams. The injury will not require surgery and Hyde should be available for the team's offseason program. He 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, who becomes the 49ers' 18th player on injured reserve, 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. Hyde started 13 games this season and had career-highs in rushes (217), rushing yards (988), rushing average (4.6), rushing touchdowns (six), receptions (27), receiving yards (163), and receiving touchdowns (three).

Moore, originally drafted by the New England Patriots in the 6th round of the 2014 NFL Draft, appeared in eight games as a rookie and had three tackles, half a sack, and a forced fumble as well as a recovery. The Patriots released him in September of 2015 and he was then signed to the Minnesota Vikings' practice squad. He appeared in one game for the Vikings in 2015 and spent the 2016 offseason with the team, but was released on September 3. He also spent time with the Dallas Cowboys but was released on December 26.

Looking at the Road Ahead: Why the 49ers' quest for a sixth Super Bowl win still looks promising

By Don Atkinson
Feb 16, 2021

When the 49ers' injury-driven 2020 season mercifully ended, the team took unwanted claim to the basement of the NFC West at 6-10 and began fielding a litany of questions about its roster future. A few of those questions have been resolved, but many more are still left open, and have become the topic of debate among both football analysts and the team's fan base. The greatest questions, of course, have revolved around whether the 49ers can ride out another year with oft-injured quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who spent much of last season either hobbled on the field or watching from the press box. The fervor over whether Garoppolo can raise his play to a level needed to win a Super Bowl has continued to escalate, making his future with the team, at least to observers, seem shaky



The 49ers Should Not, and Will Not, Trade Up to Draft a QB

By Brian Renick

Carson Wentz was traded on February 18th, 2021, from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Indianapolis Colts, for a 2021 3rd-round pick and a 2022 2nd-round pick that can turn into a 1st-round pick if Wentz reaches 75% of the Colts' offensive snaps in 2021 or 70% of the offensive snaps and the Colts make the playoffs. With Wentz headed out of Philadelphia, there is not a single quarterback drafted in the first round from the 2012 through 2016 NFL drafts who is still with the team that drafted him (with some not even in the NFL anymore). That is an astounding stretch of incredibly poor quarterback drafting. It also highlights a very important fact about drafting a quarterback in the first round: there are significantly more busts than hits. The 49ers



Overall health, not just QB, is the 49ers' biggest concern

By Chaz Inouye

If one scoured across the internet and 49ers' social media you would see that quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, is the most polarizing and debated topic discussed. Garoppolo has been the starting quarterback since the end of the 2017 season, but missed most of the 2020 season with an injured ankle and was only able to complete two games in 2018 due to a torn ACL. There are other reasons why people want a change at quarterback, but his health seems to be his biggest concern, which is valid. However, Jimmy Garoppolo and his injuries are a microcosm of the 49ers' major issue: their overall team health. Garoppolo would be the poster child for this concern as he plays the most important position on the field, but his injuries, along with those to other significant
