Kendall Hunter leaves practice with knee injury

Jul 25, 2014 at 4:58 PM--


According to Grant Cohn (@grantcohn) of the Press Democrat, San Francisco 49ers running back Kendall Hunter was injured during today's team practice.

Cohn said the following in a short post on his blog, Inside the 49ers:

He caught a pass in the flat, tried to juke and make Perrish Cox miss and Hunter's right knee buckled. He stayed on the ground for five minutes and then walked to the locker room.

Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle confirms that Hunter was able to walk off the field without any assistance and that he didn't appear to have a noticeable limp.

Branch added:

After Hunter dropped to the ground, a few teammates said "No, no, no," while another hopefully implored him to "hop up."

Hunter is slated to be Frank Gore's backup. Over the past three seasons, he has rushed for 1,202 yards on 262 attempts, averaging 4.6 yards per carry. In 2012, he averaged 5.2 yards per carry. He also has 268 receiving yards over the the past three seasons.

Hunter was drafted in the 4th round of the 2011 NFL Draft by the 49ers.

Two other young players, Marcus Lattimore and Carlos Hyde, are competing for playing time in a very deep group of running backs.

Rookies reported to training camp on Wednesday, July 16 while veterans reported on Wednesday, July 23.

Defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw was among the players not on the field for team drills when the San Francisco 49ers conducted their first training camp practice earlier today. The team plans to ease him back into a normal workload after the second-year defender underwent multiple procedures on his knee this offseason. Kinlaw had what was described as a "clean-up procedure" performed on his knee following last season. More recently, he underwent a minor procedure to reduce some swelling in the knee. Unfortunately, that limited what he could do during practice today. "He had, traveling and stuff like a month ago or something, [his knee] just swelled up a little bit," Shanahan told reporters after practice. "I don't know whether they drained it or not. I'll get it

"I have no injury," wrote San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw via an Instagram story. Out of an abundance of caution on the part of the team, Kinlaw has been limited in practices this week, working in individual drills but not in team drills. Head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters on Wednesday that the former first-round pick recently underwent a procedure to reduce the swelling in his knee, indicating that it was related to the "clean-up procedure" Kinlaw underwent after last season. "He had, traveling and stuff like a month ago or something, [his knee] just swelled up a little bit," Shanahan said. "I don't know whether they drained it or not. I'll get it exactly for you guys tomorrow. But just a minor thing. And so, he had to stay off of it
