Marcus Lattimore says he should be ready to put on pads in 3 to 4 months

Apr 27, 2013 at 2:02 PM--




During an interview with NFL Network, new San Francisco 49ers running back Marcus Lattimore from South Carolina said that his rehab is progressing well. He said that he is already doing sprints and that the doctors say that he should be ready to put on pads again in 3 to 4 months.

With the team already loaded at running back with Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter, LaMichael James and Anthony Dixon, the 49ers have no need to rush Lattimore back onto the field. In fact, 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said to NFL Network that the team may not even play Lattimore in 2013.

Lattimore is considered the best running back in the NFL Draft and would have gone a lot higher than the fourth round if not for his devastating injury that caused him to miss the last 4 games of the 2012 South Carolina football season.

Why Rich Eisen says the 49ers would be 'crazy' to put Kyle Shanahan on the hot seat

If you spend a lot of time on social media, you probably noticed a very vocal segment of The Faithful calling for the San Francisco 49ers to fire head coach Kyle Shanahan. If not that, they believe Shanahan should at least be on the hot seat, and the outcome of this season to determine his fate. Shanahan was given a pass after last season's six-win campaign. His team was coming off a Super Bowl appearance, after all, and had just endured one of the most injury-plagued seasons in recent NFL history. Shanahan is also 31-38 as a head coach, including 2019's 13-3 season. If you throw that out the window, the coach has never guided a team to more than six wins. He could do so this season. However, after winning their first two games, the 49ers have stumbled through

Week 5's Golden Nugget Award winner goes to defensive tack D.J. Jones. The other nominees for this week's award are quarterback Trey Lance for his first NFL start, defensive end Nick Bosa, linebacker Fred Warner for his dominance on defense, and punter Mitch Wishnowsky for his 48.5 punt average in the loss against the Arizona Cardinals, dropping the San Francisco 49ers to 2-3. The former Ole Miss Rebel did not have a dominant performance in the game but his sack on Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray in the first quarter had Twitter erupted. OhMyGoodness DJ



Kyle Shanahan: Jimmy Garoppolo 'doing a lot better,' 49ers QB could be 'ready to go' for Week 7

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan joined KNBR this morning and provided an update on his starting quarterback. No, not rookie Trey Lance. Jimmy Garoppolo. If healthy, Garoppolo is expected to be the Week 7 starter against the Indianapolis Colts. Lance may not even be available for that game. The rookie quarterback suffered a knee sprain during his first start this past weekend. The injury could keep him out for one or two weeks. Garoppolo is attempting to return from the calf injury sustained on October 3. It sounds like the 49ers are optimistic about his recovery. "I mean, he's doing good," Shanahan said on the Murph &



49ers QB Trey Lance says he didn't take as many hits as it seemed against Cardinals

By Kirk Larrabee

On the surface, it may seem like 49ers quarterback Trey Lance took a bit too much punishment in his first NFL start, having carried the ball 16 times while being on the other end of two sacks and seven quarterback hits. But thankfully, Lance got out of the game unscathed and assured reporters afterwards the hits he took weren't as bad as they looked. Lance spoke to reporters following the 49ers' 17-10 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday, during which he ran for 89 yards while also throwing for 192 yards and one interception on 15-of-29 passing. He downplayed any concerns about the amount of hits he took, saying that most of them didn't exactly leave him in pain. "I didn't really think I took too many shots. I'm sure I'll see how I feel tomorrow. A lot of them were
