49ers RB Carlos Hyde suffered a concussion in Friday night's preseason game. He carried 4 times for 30 yards before exiting. It's the 1st known concussion of Hyde's career. He has 15 days to get cleared in time for San Francisco's regular-season opener on Monday, September 12. If Hyde isn't available, Shaun Draughn would step in as the lead back.

The Chiefs signed RB Carlos Hyde to a 1-year, $2.8 million deal. He was unemployed for just about 24 hours after getting dumped by the Jaguars. Hyde is still just 28 but has struggled to 3.9 and 3.3 yards per carry over the past 2 seasons. He ranked 33rd last year among 47 qualifying RBs in Pro Football Focus' Elusive Rating, which measures a runner's impact beyond the blocking he receivers. Hyde joins a Chiefs backfield with Damien Williams, who inked a 2-year, $5.1 million deal in December. Both Hyde and Williams got $1.6 million guaranteed. They'll duke it out for carries this summer.

The Jaguars have released RB Carlos Hyde. They were reportedly looking to get something back for him in a trade, but that was always a long shot with Hyde due $4.7 million in 2019. After giving up a 5th-round pick for him at last year's trade deadline, Jacksonville got just 3.3 yards per carry on 58 attempts out of Hyde. Hyde has flashed at times but is now averaging 4.0 yards per carry for his career, doesn't offer much in the passing game and turns 29 in September. We'll see where he lands. The Jags, meanwhile, will be in the market for RB depth behind Leonard Fournette. T.J. Yeldon hits free agency later this month.

Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde is inactive for today's game against the Redskins. Expect a heavy dose of RB Leonard Fournette, with RB T.J. Yeldon in his usual change-of-pace role.

Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde is inactive for today’s game against the Texans. He didn’t have quite enough time to get settled in after the trade to Jacksonville Friday. T.J. Yeldon will serve as the Jags’ lead back, with Jamaal Charles as the #2.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport and James Palmer both hear that Jaguars RB Carlos Hyde might play against the Texans today -- just 2 days after being traded to Jacksonville. Per Palmer, Hyde arrived in Jacksonville around midnight on Friday and participated in Saturday's walkthrough. If he's active, he'd have a "small package of plays." Hyde obviously shouldn't be in Week 7 fantasy lineups. And his presence would be just a small ding to RB T.J. Yeldon's outlook.
