49ers GM John Lynch indicated the team is in wait-and-see mode regarding the fit of Carlos Hyde into coach Kyle Shanahan's scheme.
Shanahan has a reputation for molding his offense to fit the talents of his players, but he has always employed an outside-zone run scheme for which Hyde's power-running fit is unclear. "You have these thoughts as to ‘Do these skills translate to what we do?’" Lynch said. "He’s a very talented young man. We are very excited and hopeful. ... We think he can be a highly productive player, but we’re eager to see." Even if the 49ers settle on Hyde as their 2017 starter, they seem likely to invest at least one draft pick on a running back.

According to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline, the 49ers are "ready to give up" on Carlos Hyde due to his struggles with injuries.

Hyde has missed 14 games through three seasons, including 12-of-32 the past two years. He is now entering a contract year under a new front-office regime. It's possible the 49ers don't see Hyde's power-back skill set as a fit for new coach Kyle Shanahan's zone scheme. Hyde is also one of the NFL's least effective pass-catching backs. If Pauline's report is accurate, the 49ers could consider shopping Hyde for a middle-round pick on draft weekend.

Carlos Hyde (knee) said he is not quite back to full health.

Hyde tore his MCL in Week 16, but the injury did not require surgery. "I’m back to running," he said. "I can cut, just not all the way I like to run, but I’m making improvement." Even if he is not fully ready for the start of the offseason program, it sounds like he is close. Still, Hyde's health will remain a concern. He has played in 34 of a possible 48 games since entering the league.

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said Carlos Hyde is not yet a "finished product" and has "a lot more to his game."

"I looked at him hard when I think I was in Cleveland and I had a good feeling he was going to be a great back then," Shanahan said. "I look forward to us helping him bring that out." Shanahan also said Hyde is the starting running back "right now." Overall, the coach's comments shifted between extremely positive and cautious, which makes sense considering Hyde has flashed when on the field while also struggling to stay healthy. Hyde should excel in Shanahan's system, but the 49ers also should look to add some quality depth.

Carlos Hyde (torn MCL) doesn't require surgery.

He's out for Week 17, but it's ultimately good news for the 49ers' third-year back. "Ultimately" because the issue still fits the theme of Hyde struggling to stay healthy. Hyde will enter 2017 having missed 14 games in three years. Headed into the final season of his rookie contract, Hyde will be returning as an RB2 with durability question marks.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Carlos Hyde suffered a torn MCL Saturday against the Rams and is done for the season.

The 49ers seemed optimistic after the game, but it was always likely Hyde was done for the year. It is a disappointing end to a season in which Hyde was the only consistently effective weapon in San Francisco's offense, especially since Hyde was just 12 yards from his first 1,000-yard season. He still managed career-highs in rushing yards (988), receiving yards (163) and touchdowns (9), and this injury is unlikely to affect his availability for the offseason program. If the offense improves around him, Hyde will be back as a high-end RB2 for his contract year. With Hyde out, Shaun Draughn should lead a committee with DuJuan Harris in the season finale against the Seahawks.

Carlos Hyde will have an MRI on his injured knee.

He went down late in Saturday's win over the Rams. The Niners are cautiously optimistic about Hyde's status and don't believe he'll require surgery. The injury is believed to be a "less-severe" MCL sprain but the diagnosis won't be confirmed until the MRI results come back. Hyde is 12 yards away from 1,000. Shaun Draughn would start if Hyde can't suit up against Seattle in Week 17.

Carlos Hyde left Saturday's Week 16 game against the Rams with a knee injury and will not return.

Hyde got laid out by Rams cornerback E.J. Gaines in the fourth quarter. The play was originally called an incomplete pass but was changed to a fumble on review. The Rams recovered and scored a touchdown four plays later. Hyde rushed 13 times for 38 yards and caught three passes for 15 yards and a touchdown before exiting. That leaves Hyde 12 yards shy of 1,000 for the year. Shaun Draughn will slide in as the Niners' feature back.

Carlos Hyde contributed 71 yards on 13 carries while corralling one-of-three targets for six yards Sunday in the 49ers' Week 15 loss to the Falcons.

Hyde averaged a robust 5.46 yards per carry but as usual, game script worked against him. It wasn’t much of a game in the second half (or the first half if we’re being honest) as Hyde was limited to just five carries after halftime. It’s been a rough year for the Niners, but Hyde has been a steady presence with six touchdowns and 950 rushing yards. He’ll try to crack 1,000 yards rushing for the first time next week against the Rams.

Carlos Hyde rushed 17 times for 193 yards and caught his lone target for a seven-yard touchdown in the 49ers' Week 14 loss to the Jets.

Hyde gutted the Jets for monster runs all afternoon. The 49ers' intentions in this game should be called into question after Hyde busted a 25-yard run in overtime, only to be pulled out in favor of Shaun Draughn for the next two plays and then slammed into the teeth of New York's stout run defense on a fourth-and-two play, where Hyde was predictably stuffed, giving the Jets easy field position ahead of Bilal Powell's game-winning 19-yard touchdown run. Hyde gets another tasty draw in Week 15 against the Falcons' weak run defense, but game script will be a concern as Atlanta's high-octane offense squares off with San Francisco's swiss-cheese defense.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 07:33:00 PM

Carlos Hyde rushed 20 times for 92 yards in the 49ers' Week 12 loss to Chicago.

He added one catch for six yards. Hyde had a heavy workload early, but fell out of the gameplan in the second half. He was the only bright spot in a game the 49ers attempted just 15 passes. Hyde didn't have any red-zone chances after finding the end zone last week. He'll remain a midrange RB2 for Week 14.

Carlos Hyde rushed 13 times for 65 yards in the 49ers' Week 12 loss to the Dolphins, adding five receptions for 30 yards and a touchdown.

With the 49ers doing an excellent job of executing the read option, Hyde averaged a season-high 5.0 yards per carry. The receiving score was his first of the year. Looking rejuvenated the past two weeks, Hyde will be a solid RB2 against the Bears' decimated defense in Week 13.

49ers coach Chip Kelly said Carlos Hyde is the "main focus of what we’re doing offensively."

"It’s just overall the way our team is built," Kelly said. "We’re built to run the football." Hyde has been a workhorse when healthy this season, but he has struggled to stay on the field his entire career. His chances will certainly not be helped by running the ball 20 times a game, but fantasy owners will take the production. Hyde will be a high-end RB2 this week against the Dolphins.

Carlos Hyde delivered 86 yards on 19 carries and caught all three of his targets for 24 yards Sunday in the 49ers' Week 11 loss to the Patriots.

This was one of Hyde’s better performances of the year and a huge improvement from last week’s debacle (13 carries for 14 yards). Game script was expected to work against him on Sunday but the Patriots didn’t blow it open until the fourth quarter, which afforded Hyde three quarters of solid production. Hyde never broke the big one but he kept the chains moving and opened the offense up for Colin Kaepernick. Hyde will be in the RB2 discussion next week against Miami.

Carlos Hyde (shoulder) is practicing fully for Week 11.

Hyde returned to action last week after missing the previous two games with a sprained AC joint. He had an awful game, totaling just 14 yards on 13 carries. Despite his lackluster showing, Hyde will be in the RB2 conversation Sunday against New England.
