The 49ers placed running back Carlos Hyde on their injured-reserve list Tuesday and claimed defensive lineman Zach Moore from the Cowboys.
Hyde has a knee injury that won’t require surgery. He’ll miss Sunday’s season finale, so he was placed on IR to create a roster spot for Moore.
A sixth-round pick of the Patriots in 2014, Moore also spent time with the Vikings before landing on the Cowboys’ practice squad in September. He was called up to the active roster two weeks ago and played in one game before being waived.
Hyde posted career highs in rushing attempts (217), rushing yards (988), rushing average (4.6) and rushing touchdowns (six) in 13 games this season. His three touchdown receptions also set a career high.
