49ers’ Carlos Hyde won’t need surgery for MCL sprain

For just the second time this year, the 49ers are basking in the glow of victory after beating the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday.

But that’s not to say that everything is roses in the South Bay. The team will be without starting running back Carlos Hyde for the rest of the season. Former offensive lineman Anthony Davis is still airing his displeasure with the team on Twitter. And who knows what will happen to head coach Chip Kelly at the end of the season.

Hyde injury update
Hyde sprained his MCL last week, meaning he’ll end another season inactive, but Kelly said the news that it wasn’t worse was encouraging.

“The fact that it’s a non-surgical thing is what makes me think it’s a positive,” Kelly told reporters on Monday. “It’s unfortunate that we won’t have him for Seattle, but it’s good news for Carlos.”

Davis tweets
Davis, who retired from the team then un-retired and then retired again, did what he’s done best over the last couple years: Tweet his frustration about not being with the Niners.

Specifically, he expressed his displeasure in the team’s CEO Jed York, general manager Trent Baalke and offensive line coach Pat Flaherty.

“I miss football,” he wrote. “I don’t want to play for Jed, Trent or Pat though. They’re all full of shit.”

Davis later deleted the post.

Kelly’s uncertain future
Whenever an NFL coach can count the number of wins in a season on one hand, his job can be considered in jeopardy.

When Kelly was asked if he’s had discussions with the York family about 2017, the head coach said no and that they would revisit his status after the last game of the season.

“I’ve said the same thing every week,” Kelly said.NFL
