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.

Steve Young scoffs at the idea that 49ers' Kyle Shanahan is to blame for Trey Lance's injury

There's been no shortage of individuals within the San Francisco 49ers organization that have come to Kyle Shanahan's defense this week. A very vocal segment of the fanbase and media has criticized the head coach's use of Trey Lance. The quarterback suffered a season-ending ankle injury during the first quarter of Sunday's win against the Seattle Seahawks. One respected analyst, a Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback and 49ers icon, believes the idea that Shanahan is to blame for Lance's injury is laughable. "Look, it's football, and running quarterbacks out of the huddle is dangerous," Steve Young told KNBR's Tom Tolbert and Adam Copeland on Thursday. "You remember last year when Trey played—I think it was against the Cardinals—I think [Shanahan]



49ers-Seahawks: Kyle Shanahan says George Kittle still has a chance to play, isn't optimistic about Daniel Brunskill

Neither tight end George Kittle nor offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill practiced on Thursday. That's not a good sign regarding their potential availability for Sunday's pivotal Week 2 matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks. Kittle has not practiced since suffering a groin strain on September 5. Brunskill suffered a hamstring injury during the 49ers' exhibition opener and hasn't practiced since. Neither suited up this past weekend against the Chicago Bears. "Neither of them were able to [practice] today," Shanahan said Thursday on KNBR. "I'm holding out more hope for George. We haven't ruled Brunskill out yet, I don't believe, but I'd be shocked if Brunskill made it. George still has a chance." The 49ers are coming off a

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 2 contest against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Today's biggest injury-related news is the return of tight end George Kittle to practice. He had missed the past five practices, including two this week, after suffering a groin strain on September 5. Kittle missed the 49ers' Week 1 matchup against the Chicago Bears. While he is officially listed as "questionable" for Sunday, his return to practice bodes well for his chances of a return. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said there is more optimism regarding Kittle's chances of playing compared to last week. The team will



John Lynch: George Kittle has 'looked good' in practices ahead of 49ers-Broncos

The San Francisco 49ers' All-Pro tight end, George Kittle, practiced for the second consecutive day. He appears on track to make his 2022 season debut on Sunday against the Denver Broncos after sustaining a groin injury on September 5. "Well, George, he's had two good practices, so that's a great thing," general manager John Lynch told KNBR's Tom Tolbert and Adam Copeland. "George, he's got a lot of really special qualities. Number one, he's really good at what he does, and he's a very versatile player in that he's very good in the run game [and] he's very good in the pass game. "But there is another quality that George brings to this team. He kind of lifts us. He lifts everybody around here because he's a character. But it's real; it's genuine. And he just lifts
