Chip Kelly has no idea if Carlos Hyde will play Sunday

San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly met with the media today and gave a semi-update on the condition of RB Carlos Hyde., who he is not sure will play on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.

"He did some things yesterday," Kelly said. "Obviously, he's in a non-contact jersey so he hasn't taken any hits or anything like that on his shoulder. I would just say it's still up -- I have no idea. He'll go through today, which is a padded practice, but he's still going to be in non-contact. It's really how much movement, how much range of motion does he have, and then the assessment of what the doctors and the trainers say after tomorrow. After Friday and Saturday's training sessions."

Kelly was asked if Hyde would practice in pads today given that he is in a blue non-contact jersey. "He should be," Kelly answered. "I haven't seen him come out yet, though, so we'll see. And I haven't talked to [Vice President Of Football Operations Jeff Ferguson] this morning about what the update is on him."

Later during the press conference, Kelly pointed out that Hyde was walking out onto the practice field with pads on. "Carlos has pads on," Kelly said while pointing to Hyde. "In case you guys...just updating you. Trying to stay on the same page. But there is still the blue jersey."

The injury occurred during the third quarter of the 49ers' October 16 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Mike Davis replaced Hyde while the 49ers' starting running back was on the sideline. The 49ers promoted RB DuJuan Harris from the practice squad for their October 23 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He rushed for 39 yards on 11 carries in that game.

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

Update:

Following today's practice, Hyde was asked if he would play Sunday. "I don't know," he answered. "I really hope so."

Hyde also clarified that he has a sprained AC joint and that his shoulder remains sore.

49ers-Jaguars: Deebo Samuel credits this player for his leap as a receiver, expects to play Sunday

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel is dealing with a shin contusion and has been limited during practice this week. That probably won't keep him out of Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, though. "I'll be ready for Sunday," Samuel said after practice. "We're just taking our time. Just had a shin contusion, so just taking it slow, but we'll be ready." That's good news for the Niners. Samuel is the team's leading receiver, and his 979 receiving yards rank second among all NFL receivers this season. After struggling through injuries last season, the wideout has made a significant leap in his third year. Many, including Samuel, credit one player's influence for that leap as an offensive weapon. Samuel doesn't typically give long

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 11 contest against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday at TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, Florida. The 49ers are being cautious with rookie running back Elijah Mitchell, who sustained a finger fracture during Monday night's win over the Los Angeles Rams. He had surgery on Tuesday to repair the damage. Today, general manager John Lynch said Mitchell's availability against the Jaguars would be a game-time decision. "I think that's something that you take all the way [to game time]," Lynch said on KNBR. "He's earned that right, even as a rookie, to take it all the way down to game time. We've got to get



49ers-Seahawks Week 13 matchup flexed out of Sunday Night Football

This news shouldn't come as much of a surprise. The NFL announced that it has flexed the Week 13 matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks at Lumen Field out of "Sunday Night Football." While the 49ers are getting hot and are 5-5, the Seahawks are an abysmal 3-7. So the game doesn't have as much appeal as the NFL once believed it might.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 12 contest against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Running back Elijah Mitchell is still in a blue no-contact jersey, per the only reporter on hand to watch Friday's practice, Matt Barrows of The Athletic. Mitchell is still recovering from surgery to repair a finger fracture. I was the only reporter on hand for the early portion of practice, which either means I'm incredibly dedicated or I'm a massive loser. (Please don't answer which).
