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
(7/24/2014) 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said running back Marcus Lattimore is starting camp on the non-football injury list because that's what doctors and trainers recommended, reports the Sacramento Bee.

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.


Marcus Lattimore, Ian Williams head list of unavailable 49ers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2014) The 49ers placed six players on the non-football injury list, including second-year running back Marcus Lattimore (knee). Also on the list are receiver Bruce Ellington, center Marcus Martin, fullback Trey Millard, cornerback Keith Reaser and guard Brandon Thomas.

In addition, the team placed nose tackle Ian Williams (ankle) on the PUP list along with linebacker Aaron Lynch (hamstring) and defensive lineman Kaleb Ramsey

All the players can come off the list and start practicing at any time.


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."


Marcus Lattimore says he's nearing 100 percent


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.”

Lattimore will compete with Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter, LaMichael James and possibly Jewel Hampton, a practice squad member, for playing time next season, the report said.


Marcus Lattimore might be cleared to practice


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2013) 49ers rookie running back Marcus Lattimore, who was expected to sit out the 2013 season recovering from a major knee injury suffered in college last year, could be cleared to practice soon, according to The State. Lattimore has been on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list all season.

"They haven’t cleared me yet, but these next two, three weeks, I think they’re going to look at it," he said. "They really haven’t given me an indication or anything set in stone. I know I’ll most likely get a chance to practice."

The 49ers have until Week 11 to decide whether or not Lattimore can practice. If he can, then the 49ers get three more weeks to decide to activate him or leave him on the NFI list for the rest of the year.

"I’m ready to do whatever," Lattimore said. "They’re taking care of me. That’s the biggest thing, giving me all the time I need, but I’m ready to get out there."

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

"I've been running sprints, got a chance to get in there with the guys a little bit -- that felt good," Lattimore said. "I probably won't do training camp. And I'm on course with the trainer and the doctor to get a chance to practice midseason and see what happens."

Niners pick up Lattimore


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/27/2013) The 49ers selected South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore with a fourth-round choice in the NFL draft.

He's been diligently rehabbing the injury this spring and has even had a workout prior to the draft. Lattimore totaled 3,444 yards and 41 touchdowns from scrimmage over three years with the Gamecocks, averaging at least 4.6 yards per carry and 4.9 yards per catch over that span.

Lattimore is set to attend the combine in Indianapolis Thursday through Sunday. He is not expected to participate in any of the physical drills at the annual event but says he plans to start running the Monday after the combine. South Carolina's all-time touchdown leader said noted surgeon Dr. James Andrews will accompany him to Indianapolis to help answer any questions teams may have about Lattimore's injury, surgery and recovery. Lattimore tore multiple knee ligaments last fall in a game against Tennessee. In December, he announced he would skip his senior season and enter the NFL draft.
