SANTA CLARA, Calif. – While San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Tomsula gave post-bye updates on several injured players on Monday, he was not as specific on a few high-profile starters.
Running back Carlos Hyde, who has not played since Oct. 22 due to a stress fracture in his left foot, receiver Anquan Boldin, who has missed the past two games with a strained hamstring, and cornerback Tramaine Brock, who sat out the Niners’ 17-16 victory over the Atlanta Falcons last week with a shin injury, all remain day-to-day after the bye week.
“None of those guys have gone full speed,” Tomsula said. “Nobody has done anything full tilt yet.”
Hyde has not been seen wearing a boot and had shown little sign of a limp before the bye week. Tomsula was asked if the pain has subsided while Hyde was inactive.
“We're going to see where he’s at and see how it’s going,” Tomsula said. “He’s obviously been doing things for conditioning. He’s not running a ton, but we’ll see where he’s at this week.
“He’s feeling better with all those things but, again, you don’t know until you play. You’ve got to make some cuts and get moving on it.”
Boldin, though, insisted he would play before being inactive two weeks ago.
“I’ve been told it was a hamstring and it was low,” Tomsula said of Boldin’s injury. “So, you know, the first one was up higher and now it’s down lower. And I know that our training staff doesn’t like when those move around. So, they don’t want to mess around with something like that. That’s all I know about that.”
Tomsula also gave updates on other injured players, saying OLB Aaron Lynch (ankle/finger), CB Marcus Cromartie (face), DB Jimmie Ward (ankle) CB Keith Reaser (ankle) and CB Kenneth Acker (concussion) are all expected to be full go in practice this week.
