Carlos Hyde had surgery on foot and should be ready for offseason program

Jan 20, 2016 at 1:44 PM--


On Wednesday following the San Francisco 49ers introductory press conference of new head coach Chip Kelly, general manager Trent Baalke confirmed to the media that RB Carlos Hyde indeed had surgery late in the season and is expected to be ready for the team's offseason program.

Hyde suffered a stress fracture in his left foot, causing him to miss nine games this season. He finished 2015 with just 470 yards on 115 carries and three touchdowns.

The injury was discovered by the media just prior to the team's Week 7 matchup with the Seattle Seahawks, a game that Hyde would end up playing in.

The team's offseason program begins in April since Kelly is a new head coach. However, the brunt of the offseason program will begin later, giving Hyde enough time to heal before getting on the practice field when the 49ers really need him.

The other running backs on the roster include Shaun Draughn, Reggie Bush, Mike Davis, DuJuan Harris, Jarryd Hayne, and Kendall Gaskins. Draughn and Bush were placed on injured reserve during the season – Bush earlier than Draughn. Both are scheduled to become free agents. The 49ers were impressed with Draughn, feeling that they may have found a solid backup for Hyde once he returns.

Bush has had injury problems over his career and it is unlikely that the team will roll the dice on him a second time.

49ers DC DeMeco Ryans on HC job: "I'm ready to go do it"

San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator is in the midst of two battles: interviewing for head coaching positions, while game planning for this weekend's game against the Dallas Cowboys. Ryans, who has been in the mix for head coaching interviews for a second straight offseason, chose to remain with the 49ers in 2022, electing to bypass a second interview with the Minnesota Vikings last spring, who ended up hiring Los Angeles Rams offensive coordinator Kevin O'Connell. However, there's a clear difference between this cycle and the last cycle, which may ultimately decide Ryans's fate in 2023: his desire to become a head coach. Now, that desire was certainly there in 2022, but Ryans willingly removed his name from the mix to be the Minnesota Vikings

The San Francisco 49ers' defensive coordinator, DeMeco Ryans, is a hot name in head coaching searches. The assistant coach has already interviewed with the Denver Broncos and Houston Texans. The Arizona Cardinals and Indianapolis Colts still hope to speak with Ryans about their head coach vacancies. Right now, Ryans and the 49ers are focused on their NFC Championship Game opponent, the Philadelphia Eagles. Players know their time with the defensive coordinator is running out, though. In their minds, there is no doubt that Ryans will thrive as a head coach, whether that be after this season or down the road. "He's going to be a great head coach," defensive end Nick Bosa told reporters on Wednesday. "I think he's as good as it gets when it comes to the scheme on
