Kendall Hunter Torn ACL, What This Means for 49ers Backfield
49ers' running back Kendall Hunter reportedly tore his ACL in training
yesterday. As Frank Gore ages, the 49ers' were looking to lessen the load on
him. As a result, look for Carlos Hyde, Marcus Lattimore, and LaMichael James to step up into Gore's sidekick role. Hyde was highly drafted this year, but Lattimore is on a return from a gruesome injury himself. James hasn't done much during his time with the 49ers thusfar.
Carlos Hyde could be a great stash in fantasy leagues, but I'm liking Christine Michael, Knile Davis, and Roy Helu Jr. as better handcuffs.
