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.

John Lynch is always nervous while watching from a stadium suite whenever his San Francisco 49ers are playing. It's sometimes frustrating because the general manager knows there is nothing he can do while the team he helped create battles an opponent on the field below. That wasn't necessarily the case on Sunday when the 49ers played the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. Lynch wasn't just sitting up there watching his team. He was quite busy, actually. The general manager was working during the fourth quarter to sign pass rusher Ezekiel Ansah. "This week, I actually was (doing something during the game) because in the fourth quarter, we were trying to sign Ziggy Ansah because we needed someone," Lynch said Thursday on KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks
