49ers RB Matt Breida has a "slightly" torn pectoral, HC Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday. Breida avoided surgery, and while he'll miss OTAs, he's expected to be ready for training camp. Despite playing on a bum ankle for most of 2018, Breida averaged a big 5.3 yards per carry last year. It'll be interesting to see what kind of role he can carve out in a 2019 backfield that added Tevin Coleman and returns Jerick McKinnon from a torn ACL. Breida is just a late-round flier in early fantasy drafts.
