| Carlos Hyde likely out again this week -- Fri Nov 20 4:05 pm --|
RB still recovering from a foot fracture
|Before the 49ers practiced on Wednesday, coach Jim Tomsula told reporters that running back Carlos Hyde would take part after missing the teamís last two games with a stress fracture in his left foot. While youíd imagine the coach has a direct line to the teamís medical staff, Tomsulaís information proved to be incorrect. Hyde didnít practice on Wednesday and he remained out of practice on Thursday, which makes it hard to imagine that heíll be in the lineup against the Seahawks even if the coach were to say that Hyde will be taking handoffs from Blaine Gabbert.

FF Today's Take: In Hyde's absence, journeyman backup and practice squad member Shaun Draughn will likely see the bulk of the carries again this week, after registering 96 total yards from scrimmage in his last appearance. He's a borderline low-end RB2/flex play this week.
| Carlos Hyde ruled out Sunday -- Fri Nov 6 9:50 pm --|
RB is recovering from stress fracture in his foot
|San Francisco 49ers running back Carlos Hyde has been ruled out of Sundayís game against the Atlanta Falcons, the team announced. Hyde has been dealing with a stress fracture in his left foot and did not practice all week. He missed last weekend's 27-6 loss against the St. Louis Rams. The second-year pro out of Ohio State ranks 15th in the NFL in rushing yards this season, with 470. (SI)|
FF Today's Take: With Hyde ruled out, Reggie Bush injured, and Colin Kaepernick relegated to a backup role, there are no 49ers' offensive players worth starting this week. Who receives the most touches out of San Francisco's backfield this week is anybody's guess, but it'll probably be a mix of Kendall Gaskins, Shaun Draughn, and possibly even Jarryd Hayne.
| Bad news: Torn MCL for Reggie Bush -- Tue Nov 3 9:07 am --|
49ers RB situation in dire straits; team signs Shaun Draughn
|San Francisco 49ers running back Reggie Bush will undergo season-ending surgery on his torn MCL on Tuesday, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. With Carlos Hyde (foot) and Mike Davis (hand) both injured, that leaves newly acquired Shaun Draughn as the only healthy back.
FF Today's Take: What a mess. Bush, whose ACL was deemed OK after tests were negative, was carted off the field with a left knee injury Sunday, after he slipped on concrete near the stands in St. Louis on a punt return. Draughn wouldn't normally be a fantasy option, but he's being thrust into relevance by the barrage of injuries in the San Fran backfield.
