San Francisco 49ers RB Kendall Hunter (Achilles') was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list.
Huddle Up: Hunter is just under 9 months removed from an Achilles tear but all reports say he's been cutting and running with no problems. He'll finally be able to practice fully and if all goes well Hunter is set to be Frank Gore's primary handcuff this season.

San Francisco 49ers RB Kendall Hunter (Achilles') is ahead of schedule in his recovery, and he has resumed running, according to a source close to the player. Hunter is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.
Huddle Up: Hunter as been a solid No. 2 man in back of starter Frank Gore over the past 2 seasons, but his 2012 injury opened the door for LaMichael James, and Hunter likely is going to have to beat out the second-year RB to get his job back.

San Francisco 49ers RB Kendall Hunter (Achilles'), WR Kyle Williams (knee) and DE Justin Smith (triceps) are expected to be ready for the start of training camp.
Huddle Up: Hunter averaged 5.2 yards per carry as the No. 2 man behind Frank Gore, but rookie LaMichael James flashed his ability following Hunter's injury, and that's going to make for an interesting battle for the No. 2 job come camp time.

San Francisco 49ers RB Kendall Hunter got out of his walking boot Wednesday, Jan. 23. There was no timetable for medical clearance.
Huddle Up: Hunter's 2012 season ended prematurely due to an Achilles' tendon injury. He was a solid complement to Frank Gore before suffering the injury, and if he's able to return to health by the beginning of training camp he should find himself in a similar position in 2013.
