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.

"I mean, I'm going to do everything I can to be on the field on Sunday," George Kittle told reporters on Friday. "And then, if my body says I can go, I'll be out there." It sounds like we can expect the San Francisco 49ers star tight end to be out there for the team's first divisional matchup of the season. Despite being listed as "questionable" for the game, per multiple reports, Kittle is expected to be on the field at Levi's Stadium this afternoon when the Niners host the Seattle Seahawks. "While officially a game-time decision, SF has optimism that Kittle will be correct," notes Ian Rapoport of NFL

16 observations from the 49ers' gut-wrenching loss on Sunday

By Marc Adams
Oct 4

The San Francisco 49ers lost another heart-breaker on Sunday, this time to the hated Seattle Seahawks, falling 28-21. The offense was scorching hot on its first drive. The defense was dominant for most of the first half, particularly the first five series. After those five series, the Seahawks offense netted negative yards. But the 49ers' offense failed to capitalize, and as a result, only had a 7-0 lead before momentum started to shift. And now, much of the fanbase has turned on head coach Kyle Shanahan. Some are calling for his job. How soon we forget some of the inept coaches the 49ers have had in the past. Dennis Erickson, Mike Nolan, Mike Singeltary, Jim Tomsula, and Chip Kelly all



49ers-Cardinals Injury Report: Jimmy Garoppolo ruled out for Sunday; George Kittle doubtful

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 5 contest against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo did not practice this week and has been ruled "out" for Sunday, which means fans will see rookie Trey Lance in his first career NFL start. Garoppolo suffered a calf injury during Week 4's loss to the Seattle Seahawks. The hope was that he would take part in today's practice and test his right leg. That didn't happen. Tight end George Kittle also did not practice this week and is listed as "doubtful." He is also dealing with a calf injury. It's the same injury that kept him out of practice for most of last week. However, Kittle was able to play this past weekend. We'll have to wait to see if
