49ers GM Trent Baalke revealed that Carlos Hyde has dropped his weight into the "mid-220s."
Baalke added that Hyde looks "extremely good." Hyde measured 6-foot, 230 at the 2014 Combine. Weight loss has had positive recent effects on Le'Veon Bell, Eddie Lacy, LeSean McCoy (pre-2014), and Marshawn Lynch early in his Seattle career. If the 49ers decline to draft a running back who poses significant competition to Hyde, he'll only have Reggie Bush and Kendall Hunter to beat out for touches. Hyde has high-end RB2 upside for 2015.

Carlos Hyde projects as the 49ers' 2015 feature back.

Frank Gore will officially sign with the Eagles on Tuesday. It leaves Hyde firmly atop the depth chart, ahead of a rehabbing Kendall Hunter (ACL) and a likely low-impact addition via free agency or the draft. It turns Hyde, who rushed 83 times for 333 yards with four touchdowns as a rookie, into a serious RB1 candidate for 2015 re-draft leagues. Built like a foundation back at 6'0/235, Hyde ranked eighth last year in yards after contact per attempt. He now projects for 260-300 carries.

49ers declared RB Carlos Hyde, QB Josh Johnson, WR Stevie Johnson, CB Perrish Cox, CB Tramaine Brock, S Eric Reid, and LB Ahmad Brooks inactive for Week 17 against the Cardinals.

Frank Gore will close out the season as the 49ers' every-down back.

Carlos Hyde (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 17.

Hyde's ankle injury will cost him the final two games of the season. His rookie year ends with 83 carries, 333 yards (4.0 YPC) and four touchdowns. Alfonso Smith will back up Frank Gore in the season finale.

Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Hyde will likely miss his second straight game against the Cardinals. Alfonso Smith should continue to back up Frank Gore.

Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) remained sidelined Tuesday.

It's looking like Hyde will miss his second-straight game. That would leave Bruce Miller and Alfonso Smith behind Frank Gore in what is expected to be Jim Harbaugh's last game coaching the 49ers.

Carlos Hyde (ankle/back) has been ruled out for Week 16.

Hyde's status for the 49ers' season finale is unknown at this time.

49ers RB Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) remained sidelined Thursday.

Hyde has already said he'd need a "miracle" to suit up against the Chargers on Saturday. With Frank Gore (concussion) also looking shaky, the 49ers could be forced to roll with Bruce Miller and Alfonso Smith at running back.

Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) said he does not expect to play in Saturday's game against the Chargers barring a miracle.

Despite receiving good news following an MRI, it doesn't look like Hyde is going to be able to go on this short week. It's terrible timing, as Frank Gore (concussion) is in serious doubt as well. It's certainly possible the 49ers will be forced to roll with Alfonso Smith and Phillip Tanner at running back Saturday.

Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) remained sidelined at Wednesday's practice.

Frank Gore (concussion) also remained out on Wednesday. The 49ers are on a short week with a game against the Chargers on Saturday night. With both Hyde and Gore uncertain for Week 16, the 49ers signed RB Phillip Tanner on Wednesday. Alfonso Smith and Tanner are the lone healthy backs on the roster.

Carlos Hyde (ankle, back) did not practice Tuesday.

Hyde hurt both his ankle and back on a third-quarter play against the Seahawks. With Frank Gore (concussion) also sidelined, Alfonso Smith and FB Bruce Miller are the only other ball-carriers on the roster. We'd consider Hyde more likely than Gore to play Saturday night against the Chargers.

Carlos Hyde is undergoing an MRI on his injured ankle.

He also injured his back in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. "I just went down awkwardly," Hyde said. "I was trying to torque my body. ... I was trying to dip my shoulder but he caught on to me and pulled back." Frank Gore is currently nursing a concussion. Both players are uncertain for Week 15.

Carlos Hyde said he injured his back, not his ankle, in Sunday's loss at Seattle.

Hyde went down awkwardly in the third quarter and didn't return. Although it was announced as a right ankle issue, the rookie back said his back is the one he was going for X-rays on. With Frank Gore in the concussion protocol, it's a situation worth monitoring.

Carlos Hyde was forced from San Francisco's Week 15 game against the Seahawks with a right-ankle injury, and will not return.

Hyde got rolled up in ugly fashion in the fourth quarter, but was able to hobble off the field under his own power. He appeared to have a chance to return, but was ruled out with a little over five minutes remaining. Hyde was running well before going down, taking the rock six times for 55 yards. Five of Hyde's six carries went for at least five yards. With Frank Gore (concussion) also sidelined, FB Bruce Miller and Alfonso Smith are the next men up on the depth chart.

Carlos Hyde rushed twice for four yards and caught an eight-yard pass in the 49ers' Week 14 loss to the Raiders.

Hyde is a promising rookie, but overall he's been no more than a lightly used change-of-pace back behind Frank Gore this season. The second-round pick won't be a flex option in Week 15 at Seattle.
