Update: RB Ryan Mathews no longer an option for 49ers

Mar 12, 2015 at 1:20 PM--


Update at the end of the article.

The signing of free agent running back DeMarco Murray by the Philadelphia Eagles has left the immediate future of Ryan Mathews in question.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport seems to think that the San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland Raiders may be an option for the displaced running back.

Mathews was drafted by the San Diego Chargers with the 12th overall selection in the 2010 NFL Draft. He has had 4,061 rushing yards and 23 rushing touchdowns during his career with San Diego. He added 1,110 receiving yards and a touchdown as well.

Mathews grew up in California and the option to staying in-state may be appealing to him.

Yesterday, the 49ers hosted a visit with running back Reggie Bush. He is now headed to a visit with the New Orleans Saints.

Right now, the team has running backs Carlos Hyde and Kendall Hunter at the top of their depth chart. Free agent Frank Gore signed a deal with the Indianapolis Colts.


Update:

ESPN's Adam Schefter just reported that despite the Murray signing, Mathews will sign with the Eagles. He will not be an option for other teams.

With the current state of the Atlanta Falcons, the struggles of the San Francisco 49ers, and the criticisms of Jimmy Garoppolo, the chatter linking head coach Kyle Shanahan to his former quarterback, Matt Ryan, was inevitable. One FS1 analyst, Nick Wright of First Things First, feels a reunion between Shanahan and Ryan makes obvious sense. "I would be gobsmacked ... if he's traded before the deadline," Wright said. "But whether it's before the deadline or in the offseason, there's one obvious place for Matt Ryan, and it's San Francisco. We know they don't like their quarterback, [Ryan] won an MVP with Kyle Shanahan, he knows the system, and San Francisco can get off Jimmy G's contract at the end of this year, easily. "If you're the rest of

The San Francisco 49ers are hoping to get linebacker Kwon Alexander back this season. How soon that will happen remains unclear, but head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters on Friday that the team isn't talking injured reserve just yet. "We don't think [injured reserve is a possibility] right now," Shanahan said. "I never like to say 'minor high-ankle sprain' because high-ankle sprains are always a big issue, but it wasn't your typical one where they for sure go on IR. That's why we haven't put him on that yet, and we're hoping to keep him off." Shanahan also provided an update on Richard Sherman, who has been sidelined with a calf injury since Week 1. The 49ers had hoped to get him back this past weekend, but the cornerback had a setback last
