San Francisco 49ers RB Kendall Hunter (knee) has been participating in some drills with his teammates during offseason workouts.
Huddle Up: Hunter averaged 96.3 touches and 490 yards from scrimmage per season from 2011-13 as the primary backup to Frank Gore before missing last season with a knee ailment, but Hunter now finds himself as the No. 3 back on the depth chart behind Carlos Hyde and Reggie Bush and his 2015 fantasy prospects are slim at best.

The San Francisco 49ers placed RB Kendall Hunter (ACL tear) on no-recall waivers with a waived/injured designation Monday, Aug. 4.
Huddle Up: The Niners are going to try to move Hunter through waivers and onto the injured-reserve list, but that's a risky proposition even though the RB is unlikely to play a snap this season.

San Francisco 49ers RB Kendall Hunter (knee) tore his anterior cruciate ligament during the Friday, July 25, practice, according to a source. Hunter will subsequently miss the entire 2014 season.
Huddle Up: Hunter was expected to see a bump in workload as a compliment to Frank Gore. Now the Niners will turn to Marcus Lattimore and Carlos Hyde to round out their backfield committee.

The San Francisco 49ers may consider RB Kendall Hunter as their No. 2 running back at this point, because they know he does well in pass protection and blitz pickup. The team has not seen RB Carlos Hyde and RB Marcus Lattimore in pads at this point and is not sure about their pass protection skills.
Huddle Up: Experience is clearly on Hunter's side, but his total touches and yards from scrimmage have declined in each of his three seasons and expect Hyde, a second-round pick, to get every opportunity in training camp to win the No. 2 gig behind aging vet Frank Gore.
