49ers RB Mike Davis suffered a hand injury in the 2nd half and has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game against the Rams.  San Francisco lost RB Reggie Bush earlier in the game, while RB Carlos Hyde is inactive.  Kendall Gaskins is the only RB left for the Niners.

49ers RB Reggie Bush injured his left leg on a punt return in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game.  He had to be carted off and won't return.  Already without RB Carlos Hyde, the Niners are now left with only RBs Mike Davis and Kendall Gaskins.

Update: Bush is questionable to return with a knee injury.

The 49ers have ruled RB Carlos Hyde out for Sunday's game at St. Louis because of the stress fracture in his foot, according to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area. HC Jim Tomsula had announced Hyde as a game-time decision earlier Friday, but he and the other coaches reportedly met after practice and decided to have Hyde skip the trip. That leaves the Niners backfield to Reggie Bush, Mike Davis and Jarryd Hayne -- and even more worthy of avoiding in your fantasy football league.

49ers RB Carlos Hyde will be a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt with the Rams.  He's officially listed as questionable after not practicing all week.  Insider Matt Maiocco reports that Hyde is dealing with a stress fracture in his mid-foot area that will likely require surgery this offseason.  The 2-5 Niners would be wise to play it safe with 1 of their best offensive players.  Even if Hyde is active, he's not a recommended fantasy play vs. a stout Rams run defense.  If Hyde sits, RBs Mike Davis and Reggie Bush figure to share backfield duties.

49ers RB Carlos Hyde exited in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game with a head injury.  He'll be evaluated for a concussion and is questionable to return.  Rookie Mike Davis is operating as San Francisco's lead back with Hyde out.

Update: Hyde passed his concussion test and has been cleared to return.

The 49ers will deploy a RB-by-committee this season, according to Joe Fann of the team's official website.  Fann wrote that in an article about RB Kendall Hunter's successful recovery from last year's torn ACL.  "Hunter will be a featured piece in that offensive scheme as one of the ball-carriers in the team’s running back by committee," Fann said. "He’ll likely split carries primarily with second-year back Carlos Hyde and veteran free-agent Reggie Bush."  The article makes no mention of RB Mike Davis, but the rookie could also earn a role at some point this season.  Hyde is still the clear favorite to lead this backfield in touches, but don't expect him to be a true workhorse.  He's overvalued at his mid-3rd-round PPR ADP.

The 49ers selected RB Mike Davis in the 4th round of the 2015 NFL Draft.  Davis ripped off 1,183 yards on 5.8 yards per carry back in 2013 and looked like 1 of the top backs in college football.  But he struggled through nagging injuries this past year and averaged just 4.9 YPC.  Davis then disappointed with a 4.6-second 40 time at the Combine.  On the plus side, he's a hard-nosed runner and can contribute in the passing game.  He joins a 49ers backfield looking to replace Frank Gore.  San Francisco might not be completely sold on Carlos Hyde.  Over the past few months, they've tried to re-sign Gore, signed Reggie Bush and now drafted Davis.
