Carlos Hyde cleared from concussion protocol

Sep 8, 2016 at 1:03 PM--

San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde has been cleared from the concussion protocol and will play on Monday when the team opens their season at home against the Los Angeles Rams. He was not listed on the team's injury report that was released today.

Hyde fully participated in the team's practice today. He suffered a concussion during the first quarter of the team's third preseason game – a matchup against the Green Bay Packers at Levi's Stadium on August 26. He was seen leaving the field with team doctors during the second half of the loss.

Last season, his first as a starter, Hyde rushed for 470 yards on 115 carries through seven games. He also had three touchdowns. His season ended because of an foot injury that placed him on the injured reserve list. During the 49ers' season opener against the Minnesota Vikings, Hyde ran for 168 yards and two touchdowns.

Reported Injuries

DL Glenn Dorsey (knee), CB Chris Davis (hamstring), and CB Keith Reaser (ankle) did not practice today. DE Arik Armstead (shoulder), DE Quinton Dial (knee), and LB Nick Bellore (knee) were limited.

Earlier today, head coach Chip Kelly stated that he expects Dorsey to be active against the Los Angeles Rams on Monday.

Trey Lance was the Week 1 starter but suffered a season-ending ankle injury during his second game. Eleven weeks later, Jimmy Garoppolo sustained a broken foot. That opened the door for rookie Brock Purdy to show his coaches and the NFL world that he belonged, despite being the last overall pick in the draft. Purdy guided the 49ers to eight consecutive wins before suffering a severe injury in that NFC title game matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. Two of the quarterbacks from last season—Lance and Purdy—remain. Both are just 23 years old. They are joined by Sam
