Carlos Hyde rushed 21 times for 103 yards and two touchdowns and caught his lone target for two yards in the 49ers' Week 3 loss to Seattle.
Even though the 49ers were getting pasted 37-3, Chip Kelly elected to pad his team's rushing stats by continuing to run the ball against Seattle's prevent defense. Hyde's two touchdowns made the score 37-10, then 37-17, and his long gain of 34 also occurred in fourth-quarter garbage time. Fantasy owners will obviously take the stats, but all in all this was not a promising performance from the 49ers' running game. They do get a much more favorable matchup in Week 4 against the Cowboys. Sep 25 - 7:15 PM

Carlos Hyde was unhappy with his performance Week 2.

Hyde managed just 34 yards on 14 carries against the Panthers. "I come off a good week and then I perform that way, (it’s) just unacceptable," Hyde said. "I have to get better. I have to do better. I have to not put the ball on the ground. I’ll get better. I have to." With a trip to Seattle next up on the schedule, it will not get any easier for Hyde this week.

Carlos Hyde was held to 34 yards on 14 carries in Week 2.

Blaine Gabbert vultured a goal-line touchdown on Hyde's only real scoring opportunity. He also lost a fumble in a frustrating game. Hyde continued to have a limited pass-game role, catching three passes for 18 yards. He's struggled in Chip Kelly's run scheme, averaging 3.29 YPC through the first two weeks. Hyde is a touchdown-dependent FLEX for Week 3 against Seattle.

Carlos Hyde rushed 23 times for 88 yards and two touchdowns in the 49ers' 28-0, Week 1 win over the Rams on Monday night.

The Rams defense quit midway through the game after it saw the Case Keenum-led offense was going to give them zero shot to win this one. Hyde had a long run of 18 yards and ripped off an 11-yard touchdown run to get the scoring started. He showed great patience on the score, waiting for his blocks to set up in new coach Chip Kelly's zone-run scheme. Hyde later put salt in the wound with a one-yard touchdown plunge in the fourth quarter to make it 27-0. If the 49ers are going to win games, leaning on Hyde and the running game will be the recipe for success. Things won't be nearly as easy next week on a short week traveling to Carolina.

Carlos Hyde (concussion) is not on the Week 1 injury report.

He returned to a full practice on Thursday and is good to go for Monday night's opener against the Rams. Game script could work against Hyde this year but he remains on the RB2 spectrum for Week 1.
Sep 8 - 4:05 PM

Carlos Hyde (concussion) shed his non-contact jersey in Thursday's practice.

He was officially listed as "full," meaning that barring a setback, he'll be ready to rock for Monday Night Football. Hyde is a mid-range RB2 for what figures to be a low-scoring slog.
Sep 8 - 1:41 PM

Carlos Hyde (concussion) has been cleared for football activity.

He has one more hurdle to clear before gaining clearance for Monday night's Week 1 opener against the Rams. The 49ers will release a practice report on Thursday, but we tentatively expect Hyde to suit up Monday.
Sep 7 - 1:36 PM

49ers coach Chip Kelly said Carlos Hyde is still in the concussion protocol but is on track for Week 1.

It is concerning after Hyde was just a step from completing the protocol last week. That said, his Week 1 status will not seriously come into question unless he misses Wednesday's session. Shaun Draughn would be in line to start if Hyde cannot suit up.
Sep 3 - 5:32 PM

Carlos Hyde (concussion) has been cleared for non-football activities.

If he wakes up symptom-free on Wednesday, he will be officially cleared to resume practicing. Hyde's Week 1 status isn't a concern.
Aug 30 - 2:14 PM

Carlos Hyde suffered a concussion in the first half of the 49ers' preseason game Friday night.

Hyde didn't get to play much with Colin Kaepernick because he left early with the brain injury. Hyde will now be placed into the NFL's concussion protocol. He has 15 days to receive clearance in time for Week 1 against the Rams.
Aug 27 - 1:54 AM

Carlos Hyde rushed four times for 30 yards in the 49ers' third preseason game.

If the Niners put Hyde on ice for the preseason finale, he'll finish August with 85 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries (5.67 YPC). Hyde ripped off a 27-yard run on Friday night, setting up Quinton Patton's three-yard TD. Hyde managed three yards on his other four runs. Hyde is locked in as San Francisco's bellcow back. We'll be interested to see whether the 49ers' ineptitude cuts into Hyde's fantasy production. He's got plenty of ability in his own right.
Aug 27 - 12:43 AM

Carlos Hyde rushed six times for 28 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' second preseason game Saturday night.

Hyde was stuffed repeatedly to begin the game, but got some daylight when Denver removed its starting front seven after a few possessions and peeled off a 20-yard un-touched run. Hyde followed up with a four-yard touchdown against the Broncos' backups. Most importantly, Hyde has been utilized on all three downs through two preseason contests and is looking like a legit every-down back. Blaine Gabbert has targeted Hyde four times on checkdowns, although none of them have been complete. Expect a lot more playing time for Hyde in the 49ers' regular season dress rehearsal next week.
Aug 20 - 10:30 PM

Carlos Hyde rushed five times for 27 yards in the 49ers' preseason opener Sunday night.

Hyde's highlight was a physical tackle-breaking run for a gain of 22 up the middle. His lowlight was a lost fumble that Texans OLB John Simon returned to the house from 41 yards out. Hyde saw two targets on the 49ers' opening possession, but Blaine Gabbert missed him badly on both. Shaun Draughn mixed in with the Gabbert group and appears locked in as San Francisco's No. 2 back.
Aug 14 - 7:42 PM

The San Francisco Chronicle's Eric Branch believes Carlos Hyde could be in line for a "monster season" as long as he's able to stay healthy.

As noted by Branch, LeSean McCoy carried the ball 300-plus times each of coach Chip Kelly's first two seasons in Philadelphia, so he's not afraid to ride one running back. And Kelly's scheme is similar to the system Hyde ran in college at Ohio State. The problem for Hyde, however, has been the injury bug; he's missed 11-of-32 games since entering the pros. Also working against Hyde will be the 49ers' lackluster roster, which will likely put them behind on the scoreboard often. If -- big "if" -- Hyde is able to stay healthy, he should easily push 250 carries. Hyde looks like a high-end RB2 with RB1 upside and no clear backup to spell him.
Jul 26 - 10:12 PM

Carlos Hyde said new coach Chip Kelly's system "will help showcase all my abilities."

"Not just as a ball carrier, but also as a threat in the passing game," Hyde continued. "I think it's going to be an exciting year." Hyde has never been a consistent threat in the passing game in the NFL and never had more than 16 catches in a season while at Ohio State. Still, the buzz all offseason has been he will be more involved as a receiver under Kelly. We will believe that when we see it, but Hyde still has RB1 upside if he can stay healthy -- something he has struggled to do to this point in his career.
