49ers News: Marcus Lattimore Attempting to Practice this Season
- Updated: October 18, 2013
The San Francisco 49ers took a risk when they drafted running back Marcus Lattimore out of South Carolina in the 2013 NFL Draft, one that they may start seeing develop in the coming weeks.
On Oct. 27 it will be a year since the 21-year-old Lattimore shred his right ACL, PCL and LCL against Tennessee, a year after tearing his left ACL in October 2011.
He was once considered to be a “can’t miss talent,” projected to be selected in the top 10 of the NFL Draft in 2011. After the ACL injury he lost a lot of the burst that impressed scouts.
Lattimore has spent six months rehabilitating alongside Tank Carradine and Quinton Dial before Tuesday when the trio in addition to Mario Manningham and Eric Wright finally joined the team at practice.
While he isn’t expected to play this season, being on the non-football injury list allows Lattimore a three week window to practice with their teams between Weeks 6 and 11. After that they are either promoted to the active roster or shut down for the season.
There’s a remote chance that he will be able to physically practice as he attempts his come back next season.
Lattimore rushed for 2,677 yards in three years with South Carolina, scoring 38 touchdowns.
