News: 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."
