Morning Tailgate: Lattimore Improved at Practice

Posted Dec 10, 2013

Marcus Lattimore will not be joining the 49ers in 2013.

Marcus Lattimore was pumped to join his teammates at practice last month.

The rookie running back, however, was not activated off the team’s Non-Football Injury List. Lattimore was able to practice for three weeks with the 49ers and will now remain on that reserve list for the remainder of the year.

That’s not a bad thing necessarily.

Lattimore, the former star running back from South Carolina who suffered two major knee injuries, gained confidence from joining his teammates at practice.

Jim Harbaugh saw it that way.

“I thought that he grew in confidence and just being able to turn his feet over and put his foot in the ground, run behind his pads,” the 49ers coach said of Lattimore.

“Felt like each week got better and better. I think he’ll be excited about having that time and knowing the offseason every day he can get better and stronger and more confident with it. So, I thought it was very positive.”
