With Reggie Bush suffering a season-ending knee injury yesterday, the 49ers are looking for replacements.
And it appears they’re going to have a veteran running back cattle call.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the 49ers are going to work out veteran Ben Tate tomorrow.
It’s unlikely he’ll be the only one. When the Chiefs lost Jamaal Charles, they brought in Tate, Pierre Thomas and five other guys for workouts, though they ultimately ended up promoting Spencer Ware from the practice squad.
The Steelers are going to be in the running back market as well, so it could thin the herd a bit for the 49ers.
