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.

Texans RB Carlos Hyde (ankle) is active for today's game against the Bucs. We haven't heard any concern about that ankle, but Hyde is just a RB3 vs. Tampa's tough run defense.

Texans RB Carlos Hyde (ankle) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Bucs. He got in just 2 limited practices this week. We've heard nothing to suggest that Hyde is in danger of missing this one, but check back around 11:30 am ET on Saturday to make sure he's active if you're planning on using him. Hyde's absence would turn RB Duke Johnson into a fantasy starter.

The Chiefs have traded RB Carlos Hyde to the Texans in exchange for OT Martinas Rankins, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Hyde fell behind Darwin Thompson and Darrell Williams on Kansas City's depth chart and would have been cut if Houston didn't make this deal. Hyde has looked like a replacement-level RB for a few years now, averaging 3.7 yards per carry across 2017 and 2018 and 3.4 this preseason. He joins Duke Johnson in the Texans backfield and could handle some early-down work. But we fully expect Johnson to easily lead the way in touches.

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.
