Carlos Hyde rushed 14 times for 68 yards in the 49ers' Week 7 loss to the Cowboys.
Hyde added four receptions for 20 additional yards. Hyde's day was pretty solid all things considered, as the 49ers stuck with the running game even in a blowout. Hyde was on the field until almost the game's final moments. He also finally appeared to be over his hip injury, ripping a number of chunk gains. With the Matt Breida episode long in the rear-view mirror, Hyde will remain locked in as an RB2 for Week 8 against the Eagles. Oct 22 - 7:24 PM

Carlos Hyde played 56 offensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Redskins.

Undrafted rookie Matt Breida was limited to 17 snaps in the loss. Hyde was bottled up on the ground Sunday, but still scored a pair of touchdowns while playing an integral role in the passing game with five catches for 47 yards. Coach Kyle Shanahan had suggested the Niners would go with a hot hand approach at running back and apparently Hyde had it on on Sunday. There have been rumblings that San Francisco is shopping Hyde (an impending free agent), so it's possible the team is showcasing him in anticipation of a trade with the October 31 deadline fast approaching. Hyde gets the Cowboys in Week 7.
Oct 16 - 9:10 AM

Carlos Hyde had 13 carries for 28 yards and two touchdowns in Week 6 against the Redskins.

He added five catches for 47 yards. Hyde scored both his touchdowns in goal-line situations. His ground-game struggles continued this week, but he caught all but one of his targets. Hyde outsnapped Matt Breida, who had just six touches. The 49ers are reportedly shopping Hyde, but he's unlikely to get traded. Hyde will be a touchdown-dependent RB2 for Week 7 against Dallas.
Oct 15 - 5:06 PM

Mile High Sports' Benjamin Allbright reports the 49ers are shopping Carlos Hyde.

CSN Bay Area's John Middlekauff adds the 49ers are "open to trading every veteran for the right price." There were reports the 49ers want to extend Hyde, but he's a Trent Baalke carryover in a contract year. Hyde would be a half-season rental, so the 49ers wouldn't get much in return.
Oct 14 - 4:47 PM

Carlos Hyde (hip) is no longer listed on the 49ers' injury report.

Hyde was hampered by a hip injury earlier this year, but obviously that's no longer an issue. The bigger concern for Hyde is his workload. Undrafted rookie Matt Breida out-touched Hyde in last week's loss to Indianapolis and coach Kyle Shanahan has indicated that the team will continue to use a hot-hand approach at running back. Hyde faces the Redskins in Week 6.
Oct 11 - 7:07 PM

Coach Kyle Shanahan said the 49ers will use the "hot hand" at running back moving forward.

Carlos Hyde will continue to start, followed by rookie Matt Breida, but Shanahan said it'll be the "hot hand" after that. Breida developed the hot hand in Week 5 against the Colts, rushing 10 times for 49 yards, while Hyde struggled to get anything going, but we'd chalk some of that up to Hyde playing through a less-than-100% hip. When healthy, Hyde is still the best bet in this backfield. But it's clear he can't be fully trusted and is a threat to be benched at any moment.
Oct 9 - 7:13 PM

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said Carlos Hyde's limited snaps Week 5 against the Colts had nothing to do with his hip injury.

"It was just about trying to go with the hot hand," the coach continued. Shanahan clearly believed the hot hand belonged to Matt Breida, who out-snapped Hyde 35-to-33 while rushing for 49 yards on 10 carries. Playing Breida over Hyde makes little sense if Hyde is healthy, but he does not seem to be right now. Hyde will be a volatile RB2 against Washington this week.
Oct 9 - 9:30 AM

Carlos Hyde rushed eight times for 11 yards in the 49ers' Week 5 loss to the Colts.

He caught his lone target for seven yards. Hyde had been averaging well over 20 touches per game coming into this one, but Hyde's hip issue appeared to flare up and he rarely saw the field in the second half. Matt Breida set a new season-best with 10 carries for 49 yards behind Hyde. Hyde needs to get healthy. He'll be an RB2 next week in D.C. as long as he's in the lineup.
Oct 8 - 5:07 PM

The Mercury News reports the 49ers could extend contract-year RB Carlos Hyde.

Hyde has starred in the 49ers offense this year, ranking top ten in yards (321), touchdowns (2) and averaging 4.9 YPC. His future was in question after the Joe Williams (IR, ankle) pick, but he's a proven fit in Kyle Shanahan's zone-blocking scheme. Hyde has a checkered injury history and still needs to show he can stay healthy. If he does, Hyde is likely to command Lamar Miller money (4 years, $26M).
Oct 6 - 8:26 PM

Carlos Hyde (hip) wasn't listed on the 49ers' final injury report for Week 5 against the Colts.

Backup Matt Breida (ankle) was also removed from the injury report. Hyde played through his hip ailment last week and totaled 95 yards from scrimmage on 21 touches in a loss to the Cardinals. Playing indoors with a great matchup, Hyde will be in the RB1 conversation this week.
Oct 6 - 4:33 PM

Carlos Hyde (hip) remained limited in Thursday's practice.

The 49ers are just managing Hyde's reps after he played through the injury in Week 4. He will continue to see RB1 volume against the Colts.
Oct 5 - 6:51 PM

Carlos Hyde (hip) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Hyde saw his normal snaps despite playing through a questionable tag last week. He's not in any danger of sitting out Week 5. Hyde is an RB2 for a matchup with the Colts.
Oct 4 - 6:35 PM

Carlos Hyde rushed 16 times for 68 yards and caught 5-of-6 targets for 27 yards in the 49ers' Week 4 loss to the Cardinals.

Hyde came into this one as questionable with a hip injury, but he looked no worse for the wear and played close to his normal allotment of snaps. Matt Breida did get a season-high 10 touches, though. Neither offense was able to find the end zone in regulation in this one. Hyde will be back on the RB2 map next week against the Colts, who have played solid run defense. At the season's quarter mark, Hyde is on pace to carry the ball 260 times for 1,284 yards and eight touchdowns, while catching 68 passes. All would be career-bests. Hyde is a usage machine in coach Kyle Shanahan's offense.
Oct 1 - 8:21 PM

Carlos Hyde (hip) is active for Week 4 against the Cardinals.

Hyde's pregame warmups must have went well. He's good to go at less than 100 percent but remains a top-20 back despite the issue. Inactive for the Niners are SS Eric Reid, WR Kendrick Bourne, CB Ahkello Witherspoon, LB Mark Nzeocha, LB Pita Taumoepenu, LB Reuben Foster, and OG Erik Magnuson.
Oct 1 - 2:42 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Carlos Hyde will test his injured hip in pre-game warmups, but he expects to play Week 4 against the Cardinals.

It has become clear Hyde is dealing with a more serious injury than was let on early in the week, but it looks like he is still going to give it a go. Less than 100 percent in a tough matchup, Hyde needs to be downgraded a bit, but he is still a top-20 running back. Matt Breida could see more work than usual this week.
