The San Francisco 49ers will head down to Arizona with a decision to make on running back Carlos Hyde. Head coach Kyle Shanahan announced on Friday that Hyde will be listed as questionable on the injury report, and will be a game-time decision.
Hyde suffered a hip injury a week ago Thursday against the Los Angeles Rams. He left the game, but returned to finish it out. He has been listed as limited all three days of practice, and Shanahan said that the injury was still hurting. The 49ers have a 1:05 p.m. PT kickoff, so we’ll find out Hyde’s status when inactives are released at 11:35 a.m.
My guess is Hyde will play, but if he does not, we will see a whole lot of Matt Breida, with Raheem Mostert serving as his backup. If Hyde is active, I think we still see a good deal of Breida and some Mostert to keep Hyde fresh. If Hyde is able to go, then you treat him accordingly, but he is banged up, so if he goes, it makes sense to try and complement him a little bit more.
The 49ers released their full injury report, and once again Eric Reid and Reuben Foster have been ruled out. Kyle Juszczyk, Jaquiski Tartt, and Brock Coyle have all been listed as questionable, but Shanahan said he is optimistic about all three. All three suffered concussions last week, and have made their way through the concussion protocol. Tartt and Coyle were cleared for contact on Thursday, while Juszczyk was cleared for contact on Friday.
