SANTA CLARA — Second-year 49ers running back Carlos Hyde has been elevated to the active roster less than 24 hours after the team announced he was on the active/non-football injury list.
Hyde will be counted upon to carry the load following franchise rushing leader Frank Gore’s departure. He had been placed on the active/non-football injury list four days ahead of the start of training camp.
The team announced Wednesday that Hyde is now active. The only known injury for him during the offseason program was a muscle pull — not his hamstring — that coach Jim Tomsula didn’t discuss in further detail.
Veterans report Friday to Santa Clara headquarters with the first practice Saturday night at Levi’s Stadium.
