49ers head coach Jim Tomsula said earlier this week that he wasn’t sure if running back Carlos Hyde would be able to play again this season.

The answer to that question is now a definitive “no.” The 49ers placed Hyde on injured reserve on Saturday.

Hyde had not played since the middle of October after a stress fracture in his left foot sidelined him following a Thursday night game against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 7. Hyde played through the injury against Seattle and managed just 40 yards on 11 carries before being shelved.

It’s the right move for San Francisco to make. Hyde is a promising talent and the 49ers are going nowhere this season. There is no need to get him back as the team is playing out the string in December.

In Hyde’s place, the 49ers promoted tight end Brian Leonhardt from the practice squad.

  1. Brian The Leon Hardted steps up. 9ers had 8 TE in training camp, and they’re down to dressing a guy who wasn’t on the team at the time. Does that make him ninth string? Pretty much the same situation at RB for them. None of the 8 or so they went to camp with is standing, and they are down to using roster cuts from the bottom place team in the entire league. Lucky Gabbert is used to those situations from his days in Jacksonville. One time he was playing with a starting guard who had been out of football for three years with his last experience in the Arena League, and a starting TE who was working in a bank the week before.

  2. Remember when 9er’s fans were trying to convince people their team would still be good this year? Bahaha

  3. I know he had shown great skills in college, and totally understand why the 9ers drafted him, but only2 games of more than 60 yards rushing in his 20 games played.

    The reason I would be worried is RB is a position where there isn’t a huge learning curve compared to other positions. Most times when a RB will be good they contribute fairy quickly when you look at Le’veon Bell or Eddie Lacy a few years ago, or even this year with Langford in Chi. or Rawls in Sea.

    Is Hyde any good?

    Remember the last time the Bengals won a playoff game?!

    So we tanned his hyde when he died, Clyde, and that’s it a hangin on the shed.
