Given the buildup to their respective seasons, their probably weren’t too many people expecting the 49ers and Seahawks to enter Thursday night’s game with the same record.
Fewer still likely expected that the record would be 2-4, but that’s the case and it offers the 49ers a chance to get a leg up in the NFC West on their rivals. Having a healthy roster would help them achieve that, which makes running back Carlos Hyde’s status one to watch this week.
Hyde was questionable for Sunday’s win over the Ravens because of a foot injury and had to leave the game briefly in the second half after aggravating the injury.
“I just put too much pressure, too much weight on it,” Hyde said, via the San Francisco Chronicle. “It hurts when I put too much weight on it. … It just shocked me how bad it hurt when I tried to put too much weight on it and I just went down.”
Hyde was able to return to the game, but ran nine times for eight yards after the foot trouble cropped up. Despite the pain he felt Sunday, Hyde said he will “definitely” play against Seattle this week.
