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.

Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to be the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers when the team opens the regular season on September 12 against the Detroit Lions. How long he remains the starter is the question. San Francisco traded up to draft Garoppolo's eventual successor, Trey Lance, at No. 3 overall. He will bring a much different dynamic to head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense. The inexperienced quarterback just needs time to learn and master the playbook and scheme. We asked our 49ers Webzone contributors to predict when Lance will get his first start. Below are the responses in the order in which they were received.

The San Francisco 49ers headed into the offseason with a lot of uncertainty surrounding the roster's future. They exited the 2020 season with nearly 40 players scheduled to become free agents, unrestricted or otherwise, like Trent Williams, Kyle Juszczyk, Jason Verrett, and K'Waun Williams. Those are a lot of potential losses. And, at first, San Francisco seemingly didn't have a lot of salary-cap space to work with. There wasn't a mass exodus or a roster pudge, though, and the 49ers managed to find the money needed to bring back nearly everyone they wanted. There were only a few losses, like wide receiver Kendrick Bourne leaving for the New England Patriots. Linebacker Fred Warner joined 95.7 The Game on Friday and was asked about management's

Richard Sherman is going through a difficult situation right now. He was arrested on Wednesday morning after allegedly crashing his vehicle, then causing a disturbance at the residence of his in-laws, and eventually resisting law enforcement. Sherman was charged with "burglary domestic violence," with the "domestic violence" designation being assigned due to the cornerback being related to individuals inside the residence where the incident took place. While Sherman and officers suffered some minor injuries before the cornerback was apprehended, no one else was injured. More troubling was the
