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.

IQAir.com forecasts Saturday's AQI at 274 and Sunday's at 217, which are both categorized as "very unhealthy." Could the game be moved? Would it need to be postponed? Jake Montero of KNBR on Friday

George Kittle could play vs. Jets even if he doesn't practice, says 49ers' Kyle Shanahan

A San Francisco 49ers player rarely suits up for a game without practicing during the days leading up to that game. George Kittle is a rare tight end, though. Head coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed that Kittle wouldn't practice Wednesday or Thursday. The tight end may not practice until Friday, and even that is not a certainty. That doesn't mean the New York Jets won't have to game plan for him, though. "Kittle, he's battling," Shanahan told reporters before Wednesday's practice. "We thought it would be alright. He woke up the next day a little sore. He fully expects to be there Sunday, like he always does. Just like he always plays through the game when it happens."
