49ers will work out RB Ben Tate tomorrow

Nov 2, 2015 at 9:14 AM--


According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, free agent RB Ben Tate will be working out for the running back needy San Francisco 49ers tomorrow.

It is feared that RB Reggie Bush might be out for the remainder of the season after he slipped on the sideline concrete at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis during Sunday's game against the Rams. The team awaits the results of an MRI to see if he has a torn ACL.

Tate was a second round draft pick in the 2010 NFL Draft. He was selected by the Houston Texans and has spent brief time with the Cleveland Browns, Minnesota Vikings, and Pittsburgh Steelers. Tate has 2,363 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns on 540 carries during his career. That's a 4.4 yards-per-carry average.

The 49ers are also expected to try and re-sign RB Jarryd Hayne, who the team waived on Saturday. He must first clear waivers this afternoon.

Kittle has been dealing with what has been described as "calf soreness." He did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday and was limited this afternoon. Still, it's George Kittle, and you never want to rule him out of anything. "Totally faking it," Kittle joked. "Yeah, I'm feeling good." Today, head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters that the issue didn't originate from the Green Bay Packers game. It started in either Week 1 or Week 2. The coach couldn't recall which game, specifically. "He'd gotten stepped on pretty hard, so that bothered him," Shanahan said. "...

The San Francisco 49ers found themselves in an unexpected and unwanted special teams conundrum during a 28-21 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday when a pregame groin injury to kicker Robbie Gould left them trying to decide between using punter Mitch Wishnowsky on field goals and extra points or not using a kicker in scoring opportunities at all. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters after the game that he gave some consideration to leaving the offense on the field during situations that would normally require a placekicker. But Wishnowsky wound up getting the nod, although his results were mixed enough that head coach Kyle Shanahan kept his options open as the game went along. Wishnowsky connected on his first point after attempt, which came after a
