Carlos Hyde, the San Francisco 49ers running back, played Thursday night against the Seattle Seahawks despite suffering from a stress fracture in his left foot. Hyde was initially listed as “questionable” until Ian Rapport of NFL media reported Thursday morning on Twitter that Hyde is “good to go” against the Seahawks.
Hyde has been dealing with the injury for most of the season and felt pain during Sunday’s win against the Ravens last week. The second-year RB has struggled to impress since shredding the Minnesota Vikings’ offense in the season opener last month.
“I just put too much pressure, too much weight on it,” Hyde said on Sunday. “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,” he added.
The sophomore running back has rushed 430 yards with three touchdowns this season.
Earlier this week, Niners coach Jim Tomsula described Hyde’s injury as a bruise. “I don’t know the whole thing, but his foot’s sore,” he said Tuesday. “I don’t want to put a medical label on it, but he’s sore in there. I guess it’s a bruise. He’s got an orthotic and they are working through that way and then we’re just managing it with the pounding in practice.”
