The first few days of training camp are over and the injury list is off to a fast start. The team lost #2 RB Kendall Hunter for the whole season due to a torn ACL and his replacement LaMichael James for a month due to a dislocated elbow. That leaves the backup job to rookie Carlos Hyde and last year practice squad player Jewel Hampton. The team signed former Cardinals RB Alfonso Smith late Monday night, which makes him and Gore as the only RBs on the team with NFL experience. Marcus Lattimore is still rehabbing from his injury and has yet to practice.

The other news from training camp has been the performance of the defensive line. Carradine, Dial, and others have impressed with their ability to be difficult to block. The line has been a strength of the Niners for a couple seasons and it seems that this group is fast being a group with great depth. The ability to rotate players on the line will mean more fresh bodies for the end of the season and playoffs. As far as the offense, Kap seems to be developing a strong chemistry with newcomers Stevie Johnson and Brandon Lloyd. We know he has great chemistry with Crabtree, Boldin, and Davis, but if he can develop with his new receivers, it will make it harder for defenses to game plan.
