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

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.

"Trey Lance, I think he's ready to go," Rice said.

So his mobility, his strong arm, and this guy, he's before his



Peter Schrager says Trey Lance 'grew leaps and bounds' in the spring, is seizing leadership role

With Jimmy Garoppolo mostly out of the picture in San Francisco, Trey Lance has been making progress towards becoming the leader the 49ers need him to be at quarterback, according to Peter Schrager of FOX Sports and the NFL Network. Schrager was a guest on The Pat McAfee Show Wednesday and gave his thoughts on the current situation surrounding Garoppolo and Lance. While the 49ers (and perhaps other interested teams) wait for Garoppolo to start throwing again following his offseason shoulder surgery, Schrager says Lance has been winning over his teammates with how he has adjusted to his expected starting role. "(Garoppolo) has not been with the team," Schrager said. "He has been, for the
