Jarryd Hayne travels to Detroit, could be activated today

Dec 26, 2015 at 12:02 PM--


Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area is reporting that San Francisco 49ers practice squad RB Jarryd Hayne traveled to Detroit today with the team for Sunday's game against the Lions.

The fact that he is traveling with the team is a strong indication that Hayne could be elevated to the active roster by today's 1 PM (PT) deadline.

Hayne, a rookie, was on the active roster for six games before being deactivated prior to the team's first game against the Seattle Seahawks. He was waived the following week and when no other team claimed him, was signed to the 49ers practice squad.

Kendall Gaskins and the newly acquired DuJuan Harris are currently the only healthy running backs on the 53-man roster. RB Shaun Draughn (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday.

Hayne has 25 yards rushing on eight carries this season and has averaged 9.5 yards on punt returns.

Hayne was a big Australian media storyline during preseason. Last year, he left a stellar career in the National Rugby League to chase his dream of playing in the NFL.

That could change in 2022, though. Kinlaw has put in the work during his recover, and as the 49ers ramp up his training camp workload, many feel that the defender could be on the cusp of becoming a dominant force for the defensive front. "I think Javon, he's

A day after fans learned that Jimmie Ward had been named to the NFL Top 100 Players for the first time, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan revealed that the safety is dealing with a significant hamstring injury. The setback has put his availability for the team's Week 1 showdown with the Chicago Bears in doubt. "Yesterday, Jimmie Ward pulled his hamstring," Shanahan said. "A little worse than the other guys so he's going to be [out] some time." Shanahan notes that the 49ers have several options to fill in for Ward, should he miss time. That includes Tarvarius Moore, George Odum, and others. The team might even add someone to the defensive backfield for
