Carlos Hyde on 95.7 The Game: Kaepernick is just a focused guy right now

Jun 23, 2016 at 4:57 PM--


On Thursday, San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde joined Dan Dibley and Rick Tittle on the Afternoon Delight show on 95.7 The Game.

When asked about his health, Hyde answered, "The health is 100 percent. I'm good to go. I had a good offseason, y'know, workout program with the team. No setbacks and everything is good to go."

Last season, Hyde suffered a stress fracture in his left foot, causing him to miss nine games. 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.

"It was tough sitting out those games, not being able to help my team out. I just wanted to make sure that when I came back, I was all the way healthy so I didn't have any setbacks so I can play the whole season," Hyde continued to say in regards to the injury.

When asked about the new coaching staff and the new offensive system being installed, Hyde reminded everyone that he had gone through transitions multiple times at Ohio State. "To me, it's just another opportunity to prove yourself to your coaches so they can build that trust and relationship with you and the coach so they can count on you," Hyde said. "I'm really looking forward to working with coach Kelly. It's been very exciting this offseason and he's a great coach, so I'm definitely looking forward to it."

Hyde went on to say that he loves head coach Chip Kelly and while he used to hear the bad remarks about him from other players, he doesn't see that and feels that he is a great coach. When discussing the fast tempo of practices, Hyde said, "At first it was tiring, but we got the hang of it and now, to me, things are slowing down."

Hyde was asked if negative comments about the 49ers ownership or management impacts him or the players. "I don't really think about those things. The 49ers drafted me to come here and play running back, not discuss about what the GM and the owner of the team are doing. That's not my responsibility. My thing is to be the best running back I can and help my team win games," he answered.

No interview would be complete without a question about Colin Kaepernick. He was asked if he expects the quarterback to be with the team this year. "He's there every day with us. I definitely expect him to be with us this year. He's there grinding every day," said Hyde. "To me, he's just a focused guy right now, trying to get himself right so he can show people what he's capable of."

Trey Lance spent last season as the backup quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, sitting and learning behind veteran Jimmy Garoppolo. However, things are different this year. Lance has taken the reins from Garoppolo as the team's starting quarterback. While there was media speculation that Garoppolo might eventually work his way into a quarterback competition, for the 49ers, Lance has been the guy for a while now. "We got into the offseason, and the thought really was this is going to become Trey's team," general manager John Lynch recently told The Athletic. "We go through OTAs and all of that, and he really just asserted himself. Those decisions are Kyle's. We obviously

On Monday, former federal judge Sue L. Robinson determined that Deshaun Watson violated the personal conduct policy, imposing a six-game suspension. The NFL has until Thursday to appeal the decision, should the league feel the need to increase the suspension

On Tuesday, things got snippy between San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk and linebacker Fred Warner. The two were involved in scuffles during practice, forcing head coach Kyle Shanahan to pause the session and address his team. "It's hot today, so tempers flaring today," Aiyuk said after practice. "But it's football. Football season's here. ... The defense came out here with a great intensity the last couple of days, so we've got to wake the offense up one way or another." Aside from the heated on-field interactions with one of the league's best linebackers, Aiyuk has impressed his defensive teammates during training camp. One defender went as far as
