Carlos Hyde missed a lot of the offseason program with a relatively minor leg issue.
That left Reggie Bush to take the first running rep during drills and he reportedly looked strong. Hyde still projects as the early-down starter come Week 1, but his workload will be nibbled into by Bush, rookie Mike Davis and a healthy Kendall Hunter. And if the 49ers end up trailing a lot this season as they very well could, Bush will be logging the majority of snaps as the passing back.
Vernon Davis skipped the offseason program last year and proceeded to faceplant. He’s participating this year and allegedly looks good.
DeAndre Smelter (ACL) is expected to open the season on the NFI list. His rookie year will likely be a redshirt year.
