The San Francisco 49ers are dealing with a supply problem on running backs. After losing Kendall Hunter for the season on Friday, they will have to deal with the loss of third string RB and KR/PR LaMichael James for all of training camp.
The good news is that James should be ok at the start of the season after suffering a dislocated elbow in practice today.
This leaves veteran Frank Gore and rookie Carlos Hyde as the two healthy backs for San Francisco. Second-year back Marcus Lattimore is still not able to practice and the 49ers will likely add a RB soon to keep camp moving.
At this rate Gore and Hyde should probably be shut down for the rest of the pre-season out of fear for more injuries. Of course I’m kidding but couldn’t you see something like this happening in the near future?
