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.

Everyone in the NFL has a tremendous amount of respect for Frank Gore. He remains a fan-favorite in the Bay Area, even this week as the San Francisco 49ers prepare to face the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. Gore is in his 16th NFL season. The future Hall of Fame running back figures to be a significant part of the Jets offense this weekend with Le'Veon Bell on injured reserve. Head coach Adam Gase confirmed this week that the 37-year-old running back would start against the 49ers — the team that drafted Gore in 2005. Second-year defensive end Nick Bosa was seven years old when Gore took his first NFL snap. His defense will try to stop the veteran running back on Sunday. Bosa, now 22, was asked about Gore after Thursday's practice and whether

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR on Friday morning and provided several injury updates. Among them was news that cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon has cleared the concussion protocol and will start in place of Richard Sherman this weekend against the New York Jets. Sherman was placed on short-term injured reserve this week and will miss at least the next three games. Lynch did note that his calf strain is unrelated to his previous Achilles injury. The general manager saw Sherman after the game and noted, "It wasn't pretty the way he was walking." That, along with discussions with Sherman, led the 49ers to sideline the All-Pro cornerback for a few games. Witherspoon will fill in for the veteran cornerback and play
