Carlos Hyde (shoulder, out) is expected to miss just one game.

Hyde is not going to play this week against the Bucs, but he said his shoulder injury is "definitely not" a long-term issue. With the 49ers on bye Week 8, Hyde is expected to miss just one contest. Mike Davis will lead a backfield committee against the Bucs.

Carlos Hyde (shoulder) is out for Week 7 against the Bucs.

This was expected after coach Chip Kelly said it "would be a stretch" for Hyde to play this week. Hyde's shoulder injury isn't overly serious and he should only miss one game with the 49ers on a Week 8 bye. Mike Davis and Shaun Draughn will form a committee in his absence. Daily Slant: With Hyde on the sidelines in Week 6, Mike Davis out-snapped Shaun Draughn 24 to 5 and appears to be the favorite to lead the backfield in Week 7. He turned six touches into 19 yards against Buffalo, although Davis will have an easier draw on Sunday against a Tampa defense that has surrendered the 9th most FPPG to RBs on the year. Draughn did a fine job filling in for Hyde last season, and it's possible that he eats into a good chunk of the passing down work.

Coach Chip Kelly said it "would be a stretch" for Carlos Hyde (shoulder) to play Week 7 against the Bucs.

Well, this took a turn for the worst. Hyde injured his shoulder against the Bills, but was able to return to the game. His arm was in a sling Tuesday. Hyde missed 11 games in his first two seasons and has proven to be quite injury-prone. Look for Mike Davis to handle most of the early-down work against Tampa Bay on Sunday, with Shaun Draughn behind him. Neither is that intriguing of an option, though Davis is worth picking up as a potential volume RB3.

Carlos Hyde (shoulder) was spotted with his right arm in a sling at 49ers practice on Tuesday.

Hyde was announced with a shoulder injury in Sunday's loss to the Bills, but returned to the game. The sling is certainly eye catching, but the fact that Hyde stayed suited up in Buffalo bodes well for his Week 7 status. Mike Davis is the next man up on the depth chart. The 49ers will issue their first official injury report on Wednesday. Hyde is projected as just a low-end RB2 against the Bucs.
Oct 18 - 1:40 PM

Carlos Hyde rushed 14 times for 52 yards in the 49ers' Week 6 loss to the Bills.

With Colin Kaepernick under center instead of checkdown king Blaine Gabbert, Hyde wasn't targeted in the passing game. Hyde gave owners a scare when he checked out with a shoulder injury, but he ended up missing only one series. Hyde's 14 carries matched his fewest of the season, with the yards being his second fewest. He has a tough Week 7 matchup in a Bucs defense that sells out to stop the run.
Oct 16 - 4:55 PM

Carlos Hyde rushed 22 times for 78 yards and a touchdown in San Francisco's Week 5 loss to the Cardinals, adding six receptions for 36 additional yards.

Hyde's score was a one-yard bunny. Hyde was running angry, as usual, but there was only so much he could do with the Niners presenting no passing threat, as usual. Considering how awful Blaine Gabbert has been, Hyde's fantasy campaign should be an ongoing disaster, but he continues to get carries and scores as an overwhelmed Chip Kelly sticks with the run even when facing big deficits. It's a dream come true for Hyde's fantasy owners, and usage that keeps him on the RB1/2 borderline. He has a tough Week 6 matchup in the Bills.
Oct 6 - 11:50 PM

Carlos Hyde rushed 15 times for 74 yards and a touchdown and caught his lone target for five yards in the 49ers' Week 4 loss to the Cowboys.

Hyde had a 32-yard run on the first play of the third quarter and was otherwise held to 42 yards on 14 carries. He only has 30 receiving yards through four games. Hyde teases with a big run now and again, but he plays on a bad team with a bad offensive line. He will be an RB2 in Week 5 against the Cardinals.
Oct 2 - 8:11 PM

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.
Sep 19 - 11:26 AM

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.
Sep 18 - 5:14 PM

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.
Sep 13 - 1:37 AM

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.
