Report: 49ers RB Carlos Hyde expects to play against Cardinals

Sep 30, 2017 at 11:54 PM--

San Francisco 49ers running back Carlos Hyde, who suffered a hip injury against the Los Angeles Rams, is heading into Sunday's matchup against the Arizona Cardinals as questionable. He was limited during practices this week.

"Definitely still hurting," 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said Friday while discussing Hyde.

Shanahan added that Hyde's availability for Sunday would be a game-time decision.

Hyde may be hurting, but he expects to play against the Cardinals, according to a report by Adam Schefter of ESPN. However, that will be dependent on how his hip feels during pregame warmups in Glendale, Arizona.

Despite the injury suffered against the Rams, Hyde finished the game. Prior to this season, Hyde has missed 12 games since becoming a starter in 2015, including the final game of 2016 after being placed on injured reserve due to an MCL sprain.

In 2017, Hyde is averaging 5.2 yards per carry and has found the end zone twice. He has racked up 253 yards in three games, including a 124-yard performance during Week 2 against the Seattle Seahawks.

Hyde has four runs of 15 or more yards, which is tied for third in the league among running backs, according to Pro Football Focus. His 126 yards during those runs ranks second in the league.

"If you look at his last nine games going back to last year...144 carries for 798 yards," our own Al Sacco stated this past week on the latest No Huddle podcast, "5.5 yards per carry. Other than this past week, those other eight games, it's not like he had a prolific passing attack to help him. He looks comfortable in this offense and there were a lot of questions if he would or would not. And he does.

"He had 25 carries, 84 yards, and two scores in Week 3 and he just looks like he's really coming into his own. And I know he got dinged up in this past game and I just hope he can stay on the field because, to me, right now, the sky's the limit for Hyde. I really feel he's finally finding his groove."

49ers considered trading Mike McGlinchey last year

By David Bonilla
Mar 25

Mike McGlinchey received a life-changing payday, signing a five-year, $87.5 million deal with the Denver Broncos. The offensive tackle has known for a while that he would not return to the San Francisco 49ers, the only NFL team he has played for and the one that made him the No. 9 overall pick in 2018. General manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan made it clear to McGlinchey that he was likely playing his final months for the team. There was too much money invested in other spots, and the 49ers knew they couldn't compete with other interested teams. Behind the scenes, Lynch and Shanahan kept McGlinchey in the loop of what the team was thinking, and everything pointed to the tackle playing elsewhere in 2023 … maybe even
