Carlos Hyde misses another practice with foot injury
Paul Gutierrez, ESPN Staff Writer
SANTA CLARA, Calif. – While receiver Anquan Boldin and his sore hamstring were added to the San Francisco 49ers' injury list Thursday, running back Carlos Hyde and his sore left foot missed practice for a second consecutive day.
Hyde, who said last week he had a stress fracture, does not shy away from contact; rather, he seems to seek it when running the ball.
“I don’t think that his desire to get additional yards is a bad thing and the hits that he’s taking, he’s worked really hard to condition himself,” said Niners offensive coordinator Geep Chryst. “I think it’s just more specific to maybe where his foot is at in terms of effectiveness than, you know, spinning, trying to get an additional two or three yards. He’s a competitive, tough player.
“We love having him on our team and we just want him back healthy as quick as possible.”
Hyde’s 470 rushing yards rank ninth in the NFL.
