49ers-Buccaneers Injury Report: Hyde won’t play against Bucs, Ward will play

Oct 19, 2016 at 1:48 PM--


RB Carlos Hyde has not participated in practice this for the San Francisco 49ers. Prior to practice on Tuesday, he was seen walking out to the practice field with his right arm in a sling. The injury occurred during the third quarter of Sunday's 49ers 45-16 loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Hyde said that the injury is not long term and that he should only miss Sunday's game against Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He plans to return to play against the New Orleans Saints following the team's bye week. "It's definitely not long-term, which is good," Hyde said on Wednesday.

Mike Davis replaced Hyde while the 49ers' starting running back was on the sideline on Sunday. Davis and Shaun Draughn are the only other running backs on the team's 53-man roster. The 49ers do have two running backs on the practice squad in DuJuan Harris and rookie Kelvin Taylor.

"(DuJuan Harris is) another guy that's shown some things from a practice standpoint to try to really find out who that number two guy is behind Carlos," head coach Chip Kelly said on Monday.

"Kelvin's done a nice job," Kelly said today. "Like any young player, first year in the league, there's a learning curve that goes on. Especially with running backs transitioning from the college level to the NFL with just protection."

Hyde has 429 yards on 109 carries and six touchdowns so far this season. He has averaged 3.9 yards per carry.

CB Jimmie Ward stated that he would be available for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay. His status has been said to be week-to-week and Ward has missed three games since suffering a quadriceps strain during the second quarter of the 49ers' Week 3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Ward informed the media that he has been working at both cornerback and nickel this week in preparation for the Buccaneers.

That's good news for the 49ers who may be without rookie CB Rashard Robinson, who suffered a concussion during the third quarter of Sunday's loss to the Bills. He is in the league's mandatory concussion protocol this week and his status is unknown.

Below is the practice participation report for both the 49ers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reported on Monday that San Francisco 49ers running back Tevin Coleman is expected to miss "multiple weeks" with a knee sprain. While head coach Kyle Shanahan said running back Raheem Mostert is unlikely to suit up for Sunday's game against the New York Giants, his prognosis doesn't appear to be as dire. Shanahan said on Monday that an MRI revealed that Mostert is dealing with an MCL sprain. Tom Pelissero reports that the 49ers are optimistic the running back won't miss an extended amount of time, which was the impression the coach

Mohamed Sanu will play against Jets if 49ers dress five WRs, Shanahan says

It sounds like a safe bet that wide receiver Mohamed Sanu will be on the field for the 49ers against the New York Jets this weekend, even though he only has one practice under his belt after officially joining the team Friday. The 49ers officially announced the signing of the veteran receiver late Friday morning after his agent revealed earlier in the week Sanu would be joining the team on a one-year deal. Sanu, 31, brings some much-needed depth to a 49ers receiving room that has been decimated by injury and also has the ability to step in and contribute right away after spending a season in Shanahan's system while Shanahan was the offensive coordinator in Atlanta in 2016. Shanahan expressed confidence earlier in the week in Sanu's ability to help the 49ers

49ers DB Jimmie Ward not surprised Frank Gore still going strong at age 37

There's probably a number of people who never expected to see New York Jets running back Frank Gore still going strong in the NFL at age 37, but his former teammate Jimmie Ward isn't one of them. Ward is one of three current 49ers players who were on the roster when Gore was last with the team in 2014, with long snapper Kyle Nelson and cornerback Dontae Johnson being the others. Gore was a model of consistency back then, having rushed for over 1,000 yards in eight of nine seasons going back to 2006, and had just wrapped up a season of 1,106 yards and four touchdowns when he and the 49ers didn't come to terms on a new contract after the 2014 season. Gore will face off against his former team when the 49ers face the Jets on Sunday, the second time he's done so
