Carlos Hyde looks like the early favorite to serve as Frank Gore's primary backup this season. Kendall Hunter suffered a season-ending knee injury in training camp, LaMichael James dislocated an elbow shortly thereafter, and Marcus Lattimore is still rehabilitating his reconstructed right knee. James and Lattimore will eventually return, but in the meantime Hyde will have plenty of opportunities to impress the coaching staff. What Hyde has going for him is a bruising running style that is similar to Gore's. Hyde, a rookie, is a big back who can be the kind of workhorse that Gore has been in recent years, and the 49ers may view him as Gore's eventual successor. If so, it makes sense to get him playing time sooner rather than later, so as to make the transition a smooth one.
