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.

Analyst calls the idea that the 49ers traded up for Mac Jones 'a punch to the stomach'

Longtime draft analyst Matt Miller is convinced that the San Francisco 49ers traded up to the No. 3 overall pick for Alabama quarterback Mac Jones, and he doesn't sound too happy about it. He grew up as a Niners fan, and the idea that his favorite NFL team might select Jones over a prospect like Justin Fields of Ohio State disturbs him on two fronts—as a fan and an analyst. "As a lifelong Niners fan, that's such a punch to the stomach," Miller said on the Dan Patrick Show. "I'm trying to trust (general manager) John Lynch and (head coach) Kyle Shanahan, but I remember when they said they didn't need a quarterback and they passed on Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson only to pick up C.J. Beathard in the third round. "I'm still a little gun-shy about



What if? GMFB intrigued by the idea of Kyle Pitts-to-49ers in draft

The San Francisco 49ers traded up to the No. 3 overall pick to select a quarterback. Whether that player is Mac Jones of Alabama, Justin Fields of Ohio State, or Trey Lance of North Dakota State remains to be seen. While one of those three is the most likely target, the Good Morning Football hosts threw out an intriguing scenario. What if head coach Kyle Shanahan really wants the player many see as the most intriguing prospect in the draft—tight end Kyle Pitts of Florida? Now, it is important to note that no one is saying this is even a possibility. It just created an interesting discussion point. When it comes to the three quarterback



NFL's Racist Past Has a Part in the Jones Versus Fields Debate

By Levin T. Black

It's time to address the elephant in the room. Racism has helped Mac Jones' stock and hurt Justin Fields' in the lead-up to the draft. Yes, it really is happening. Now before you freak out, take a breath, and keep reading because I don't mean what you likely think I mean. No, I don't think draft pundits are sitting at their keyboards and purposefully finding reasons to knock Fields while talking up Jones simply because of the color of their skin. That would be what I would call blatant racism or conscious racism, if you will. Racism has more nuance than that. There is such a thing as unconscious racism and every single person in this country has acted on it at one point or another without realizing it. How? Why? Because racism has purposefully been



Russini: Patriots' interest in 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo has been 'consistent'

ESPN's Jordan Schultz recently reported that the New England Patriots are no longer pursuing San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Of course, watching John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan being chatty with Bill Belichick and Josh McDaniel at Alabama's pro day on Tuesday is enough to create more speculation. What were they discussing? Was it where they got their morning coffee? Was Belichick sharing where to obtain golfing attire? Did Garoppolo's name come up at any point during the socialization? ESPN's Dianna Russini doesn't believe that Belichick and company have given up hope of reuniting with Garoppolo in New England, especially after San Francisco
