49ers trying to get Ellington to 100% and Hyde expected to play Sunday

Oct 16, 2015 at 12:18 PM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula said today that he fully expects RB Carlos Hyde to play on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. Hyde was on hand for warm-ups on Thursday but then went into the weight room once team practice started. According to Tomsula, he later returned to the field for practice.

"We're going to monitor Carlos," said Tomsula. Hyde is recovering from a sore foot.

WR Bruce Ellington has missed some time this season due to injury, but briefly played during Sunday's loss to the New York Giants. When asked if injuries are contributing to his limited play, Tomsula said, "We're just trying to get Bruce healthy." He went on to say that they are trying to get Ellington to 100 percent.

Ellington had two receptions for 39 yards against the Giants. Both receptions came during the 49ers' opening drive.

Tomsula said that RB Jarryd Hayne is improving daily. He had nine yards on two carries against the Giants.

When asked about C Daniel Kilgore, Tomsula said, "My weekly updates on him are that he is progressing really well." While there is currently no timetable for his return, he is eligible to return following Sunday's game. However, it is unlikely that the team would rush him back on a short week. The 49ers will host the Seattle Seahawks on the following Thursday.

Tomsula also stated that he is hearing good reports on the improvement of WR DeAndre Smelter, a fourth-round draft pick by the 49ers who is attempting to return from a torn ACL suffered in November of 2014 while with Georgia Tech. He is also eligible to return next week.

Another player that will become available next week is WR Jerome Simpson, who will be done serving his six-game suspension for violating the league's policy and program for substances of abuse.

49ers' Kyle Juszczyk on Jimmie Ward's Top 100 Players debut: "He's deserved that for a while"

In 2013, Baltimore Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta came in at No. 100 on the NFL Top 100 Players list. San Francisco 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk called his good friend, giving him a hard time for not getting into the double digits. Nine years later, Juszczyk finds himself named to his second consecutive NFL Top 100 Players list. Last year, the fullback came in at No. 97. This year? No. 100. Juszczyk admits that karma probably finally caught up with him. Although, he is happy just to be on the list because his peers vote on it. "Honestly, that's one of the biggest recognitions I could get," Juszczyk admitted on Monday. While several other 49ers players are bound to show up once Nos. 1-50 are announced, one of Juszczyk's teammates has already been



Rapoport: I don't get the sense the Browns are interested in 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo

We might quickly learn how much faith the Cleveland Browns have in quarterback Jacoby Brissett. Will they ride the 2022 season with the seventh-year quarterback, should the NFL force Deshaun Watson to sit out the season? Or will the Browns seek a different veteran quarterback? San Francisco 49ers fans are hoping for the latter. They're hoping for a miracle. Maybe, somehow, the Niners can get something in return for Jimmy Garoppolo and not be forced to release the former starter. The Browns might be the 49ers' last hope. San Francisco is waiting to see if any trade interest develops, but so far, there has been nothing to report. Teams just aren't interested in the 30-year-old quarterback. NFL insider Ian Rapoport doesn't believe the Browns are too



49ers release Robert Nkemdiche to get under first roster cut-down limit of 2022

NFL teams had until 1 p.m. PT to reduce their rosters down to a maximum of 85 players on the active/inactive list. The San Francisco 49ers got there by releasing defensive lineman Robert Nkemdiche. The roster move follows those that came on Monday when San Francisco released cornerback Darqueze Dennard and waived fullback Josh Hokit, wide receiver KeeSean Johnson, and defensive lineman Tomasi Laulile. The 49ers initially signed Nkemdiche to a one-year deal on July 26. The Arizona Cardinals drafted Nkemdiche (6-3, 296) out of Ole Miss with the No. 29 overall pick in 2016. He registered 15 tackles, a quarterback hit, and a pass defensed through nine game appearances with the Seattle Seahawks last season, per
