49ers 'Fully Expect' Carlos Hyde to Play vs. Ravens

The foot of the San Francisco 49ers running back has been a hot topic of conversation this week at the SAP Performance facility.

Pierre Garçon was listed as limited practice on Thursday with the foot injury and was seen doing positional drills during the portion of Friday's practice open to the media.

"His foot's hurt," Jim Tomsula told reporters on Friday. "His foot is sore, so they put an orthotic in there and I know you've got to get used to wearing the orthotic. ... So, they are doing that. Fully expect him to play and those things, but I know we have to manage it."

Tomsula added that after going to the training room for a portion of Thursday's session, the running back returned for team drills. The 49ers head coach made it sound like they will monitor Hyde on a week-to-week basis and determine his practice participation level accordingly.

Linebacker Ahmad Brooks (bereavement) is back with the team and practiced for the second consecutive day.

"Ahmad had a good practice (on Thursday). We limited him, and then he'll be out there practicing today. So really glad to have him back in the building."

Brooks is expected to regain his starting role opposite Aaron Lynch and will provide a boost to the 49ers pass rush against Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens.

Reggie Bush (calf) has not practiced all week and was not seen on Friday during the open period. Tomsula told the media that Bush would work out on his own but did not sound optimistic that the veteran running back would be available on Sunday.

Both Garrett Celek (chest) and Vernon Davis (knee) were at practice on Friday after being listed as limited on Thursday. The pair of tight ends appear to be on track to go against the Ravens. For Davis, it will be his return to the field after missing two games with the knee injury.

The official game designations will come out Friday afternoon. Check for a full injury report later this evening.
