49ers RB Marcus Lattimore announces retirement


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/5/2014) 49ers running back Marcus Lattimore said he's retiring from football because he's been unable to get his knee "fully back to the level the NFL demands." Lattimore suffered serious knee injuries in 2011 and 2012 while playing for South Carolina.

"After prayer and careful consideration, I have decided it’s time to end my professional football career," Lattimore said in a statement. "I have given my heart and soul to the game that I love, and it’s time for me to move on to the next chapter of my life and help others. I have given every ounce of my energy toward making a full recovery from my knee injury, and I have made a lot of progress. Unfortunately, getting my knee fully back to the level the NFL demands has proven to be insurmountable."

Lattimore began practicing with the 49ers last week but experienced soreness and was not able to continue. South Carolina's all-time leader in rushing touchdowns (38) and total touchdowns (41), Lattimore never got to play a snap in the NFL.


49ers coach Harbaugh: Marcus Lattimore still weighing his options


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh told reporters during his Monday news conference that running back Marcus Lattimore is still "weighing his options" and will talk to his family before making a decision on his career, per the team's official website.

Lattimore experienced soreness in his surgically-repaired knee in two practices last week, and as a result, he's considering whether to continue moving forward with his comeback attempt from a major knee injury.

In 2011, Lattimore suffered a torn ACL and MCL in his left knee and in 2012, he suffered three torn knee ligaments and a dislocated kneecap in his right knee while playing for the University of South Carolina.


Agent: No decision has been made about Marcus Lattimore's future


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) The Marcus Lattimore rumor mill heightened Monday morning as speculation about his NFL future picked up across the Internet. 

The Lattimore rumors first started Sunday evening when a report from CSNBayArea.com surfaced about the 49ers running back contemplating retirement as he experienced soreness in his surgically-repaired knee in two practices last week. Lattimore is attempting to return from a major knee injury he suffered in college in 2012.

The retirement speculation took off Monday morning when ESPN reported a league source said Lattimore is expected to retire. Lattimore's agent, Michael Perrett, was quick to squash that rumor, as he posted on Twitter that no decision has been made about his client's NFL future.

NFL.com joined the fray as well by reporting Lattimore will meet with trainers and doctors Monday to figure out the reason for Lattimore's knee soreness. Lattimore is not believed to have suffered any structural damage in his knee since returning to practice last week, according to The Sacramento Bee.

Lattimore has suffered major injuries to both knees. In 2011, he tore the ACL and MCL in his left knee. In 2012, he suffered three torn knee ligaments and a dislocated kneecap in his right knee, which required reconstructive surgery. Lattimore has yet to take a snap in the NFL since being a fourth-round pick in 2013.

He's attempting to return from a serious knee injury suffered while still in college in 2012. Coach Jim Harbaugh indicated after Sunday's game that he expects an announcement to come soon regarding Lattimore's status, fueling the speculation of retirement talks. The running back was reportedly not at Sunday's loss to the Rams.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said running back Marcus Lattimore will come off the non-football injury list Wednesday, opening his 21-day practice window. The team must decide in those three weeks whether to put Lattimore on the active roster.

Lattimore is poised to return from a devastating knee injury he suffered exactly two years ago while playing for South Carolina.


49ers RB Marcus Lattimore scheduled to practice Monday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) 49ers running back Marcus Lattimore, who's been on the non-football injury list all season, is scheduled to practice Monday when the team returns from its bye, reports CSNBayArea.com. That will be two years to the day since he suffered a devastating knee injury while playing for South Carolina.

"As you know, it's been a long road," Lattimore said.

Lattimore said he reported to training camp at 225 pounds but is down to 220 and believes he's quicker, the report said. He's eager to test himself at full-contact practices.

"I want to put together consistently good days of practice so they trust me to go out there and play," he said. "That's the biggest thing."

The 49ers must decide whether to activate Lattimore within three weeks of his first practice.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Marcus Lattimore not expected to be ready for season opener


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Harbaugh: Marcus Lattimore 'quite not there yet'


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said "there's been gains" with the recovery process of running back Marcus Lattimore, but he's "quite not there yet," according to the Sacramento Bee on Friday.

GM: Marcus Lattimore 'close' to practicing


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said running back Marcus Lattimore has not encountered a setback in his return from reconstructive knee surgery and is "close" to be activated, reports the Sacramento Bee. Baalke didn't provide a more specific timetable.

"He's coming off, as we all know, a horrific injury," Baalke told the paper. "And we want to make sure, as does he, that he's 100 percent mentally and physically ready to go to help this football team, and to give himself the best chance to compete at a high level. ... But as far as setbacks, no."

Lattimore is on the non-football injury list, meaning he's sidelined due to the 2012 injury he sustained in college. Baalke said the issue is partly mental.

"There's a mental hurdle and a physical hurdle you've got to overcome," he said. "And he's close. How close? That remains to be seen."

Asked how the team will know when Lattimore has cleared those hurdles, Baalke replied: "I think the players tell you. Just like Michael Crabtree last year when he was coming back (from an Achilles' tendon tear). It really came down to when he believed in his mind he was ready to go. You can't tell them how they feel. As a player, they know when they're ready."


Marcus Lattimore on NFI list with two injuries


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Asked if the problem was Lattimore's surgically reconstructed knee or the hamstring strain he suffered in the spring, Harbaugh replied, "A combination of the two." Harbaugh declined to elaborate.

Other reports indicate Lattimore is not too far away from being ready. He could be activated at any time.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Marcus Lattimore to open camp on NFI list


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/17/2014) The 49ers announced that running back Marcus Lattimore will begin training camp on the team's non-football injury list, reports NFL.com.

Lattimore said in February that he was close to 100 percent on the heels of back-to-back devastating knee injuries in 2011 and 2012 at South Carolina. But he will now watch from afar as rookie Carlos Hyde challenges veteran Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter for snaps in San Francisco's run-heavy attack.

Lattimore's comeback has been an inspiration to teammates, but he will need to get on the field sooner than later to remain in the 49ers' plans.


Marcus Lattimore has good first day of minicamp


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/18/2014) 49ers running back Marcus Lattimore picked up a few extra reps while Frank Gore rested for the team's first day of minicamp and looked great. According to the Sacramento Bee, Lattimore was noticeably better, showing more explosiveness than he did a couple of weeks back when his hamstring was bothering him.

He showed off that burst of his when he made a catch on an out pattern and sped up the field. The paper qualifies this as "making progress" while offensive coordinator said Lattimore was "right on track."

Lattimore will compete for a spot on the depth chart behind Frank Gore in camp this summer. 


Marcus Lattimore 'working through something'


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/23/2014) 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said Friday that second-year running back Marcus Lattimore is "working through something" and won't take part in the rookie minicamp, reports the Sacramento Bee.

The report said it's not related to his knee, according to Harbaugh, since Lattimore is trying to come back from the horrific knee injury he suffered in his final year at South Carolina in 2012.

The report speculates that Lattimore, who has been working out this offseason, is dealing with soreness in his leg after a year of not going full speed. The 49ers can ease Lattimore back into action with Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and rookie Carlos Hyde on the roster.


Marcus Lattimore reports no knee soreness or swelling


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) 49ers running back Marcus Lattimore, who tore three ligaments in his left knee in October 2012, is pleased with his progress in the team's offseason program. He did not play last season while rehabbing the injury.

"It’s been going good," Lattimore told the team's website. "I’m real happy because I’ve had no knee problems, nothing in my knee, no soreness, no swelling."

But Lattimore, who earlier this month said he has not yet regained his explosiveness, conceded he has a ways to go.

"It’s all the other muscles around the knee getting used to the workload again and going full-speed," Lattimore said. "That’s what I have to get used to, going full-speed again and getting those instincts back that I’ve had.

"I’m taking it one day at a time. Your hamstring gets sore, your calves get sore, but you push through that. And once you get used to that as the weeks go by, the more I get into football shape, I feel like I’ll be fine."


Marcus Lattimore says he's not quite all the way back


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/6/2014) 49ers running back Marcus Lattimore told the San Jose Mercury News that he still doesn't have "the first-step burst, the explosiveness through the hole" that he had in college before suffering a gruesome knee injury in 2012. He believes it'll be one of the last things that come back and figures it won't even come back until he's chased by defenders in a game. 

Lattimore spent all of last season on the PUP list as he rehabbed from a torn left ACL, PCL and MCL. 


Marcus Lattimore eager to start pro career


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2014) 49ers running back Marcus Lattimore is ready to start his proffesional career. After blowing out his knee in a gruesome injury in October of 2012 at South Carolina, Lattimore told The State on Sunday that his knee rehab is complete and that he's "ready to play."

Lattimore, who will attend the first day of the team's offseason workouts, will enter a crowded backfield with Kendall Hunter and LaMichael James already backing up current starter Frank Gore. However, James has expressed his desire for a bigger role and could be dealt, opening the door for the No. 3 spot in the backfield.

"If that happens, it does put me in that No. 3 spot," Lattimore said. "But I've just got to go in there and work hard. I can pass-protect and run the ball. I've got to show that."


Marcus Lattimore's contract pushed another year forward


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/14/2014) Because Marcus Lattimore didn't play in 2013, his contract "tolled" forward a year, meaning he's under a deal for four years instead of the three years others in his rookie class signed and played on already. Lattimore's deal with the 49ers now extends through the 2017 season according to Comcast Sportsnet. 

Harbaugh: Marcus Lattimore can make impact


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/26/2014) 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said Wednesday at the NFL owners meeting that running back Marcus Lattimore can make an impact in 2014.

Lattimore missed his rookie season in 2013 after suffering a devestating knee injury in college at South Carolina, but Harbaugh said his rehab is going well.

"I haven't seen him in about a month or so since the end of the season, and he was out there training for a little bit. He looked good," Harbaugh said. "I think he’s back in South Carolina, and all reports are he's hitting it really hard. He's very excited to get started."

Harbaugh said Lattimore can help the 49ers improve this season.

"We'll wait and see, but he's factored in right now. (He) has the chance to make a big impact this year. That could be a big leap for our team."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2014) 49ers running back Marcus Lattimore, who suffered two devastating knee injuries in college and sat out his rookie year in the NFL, told the Associated Press he's close to 100 percent.

"The left knee, it feels like nothing ever happened," Lattimore said. "The right knee, it feels great. Both feel balanced. I've got my speed and I rarely get any soreness" after workouts.

Lattimore can't wait for April 21, the start of offseason workouts. The 2013 fourth-round pick wants to vindicate the 49ers for their patience with him.

"I was just so grateful they believed in what I could do," Lattimore said.


Marcus Lattimore felt he could have played in December


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2014) 49ers running back Marcus Lattimore said his surgically-reconstructed knee felt good enough that he could have played in December, but the rookie respects the team's long-term plans for him, reports the team's website. Lattimore said he spent the year rehabbing and learning from running backs coach Tom Rathman and veteran starter Frank Gore.

“Mentally was the biggest thing for me, understanding the offense,” Lattimore said. “They showed me how to play the game, honestly. I’m real excited about next year.”
