Marcus Lattimore, Jimmie Ward Limited for 49ers Rookie Minicamp

Posted May 23, 2014

Jim Harbaugh announced Marcus Lattimore will "somewhat" take part in the team's three-day rookie minicamp. First-round pick Jimmie Ward will only take part in walk-throughs.



According to Jim Harbaugh, two notable young players on the San Francisco 49ers will have limited roles in the team's three-day rookie minicamp.

Second-year running back Marcus Lattimore, an intruiging prospect looking to rebound from a season on the sideline, will not have a heavy workload this weekend.

In addition, first-round draft pick Jimmie Ward will only take part in walk-throughs.

Lattimore is "working through something," a popular term Harbaugh uses when discussing injuries. Ward is still nursing a foot injury.

Harbaugh was first asked if Lattimore will take part in the rookie camp.

"Somewhat," the 49ers coach said. "He's working through something. It's not the knee, it's something else he's working through and we're going to be going through the speed that the doctors allow, what his body allows him to go."

Harbaugh said Lattimore "looked good" in the days he was able to go full-speed in the team's "Football School" workouts.

Lattimore told 49ers.com that he hasn't experienced any soreness in his knee this offseason.

When Lattimore's name was brought up to Harbaugh again, the 49ers coach said, "Again, he's improved to where he was the last time we saw him in those practices in the end of the season. Yes, he's quick and faster."

Ward, who signed his four-year rookie contract on Thursday, will not practice this week.

"He is scheduled to be healthy for training camp," Harbaugh said of the young defensive back, who could be the team's starting nickel cornerback. "No change in that."
