San Francisco 49ers RB Marcus Lattimore (knee) said Saturday, March 1, that the 'rehab is over,' and he is ready for whatever the team throws at him. 'Whatever role they want me to do, I'm ready,' Lattimore said.

Huddle Up: Fantasy wild cards don't get any wilder than Lattimore, the 4th-round pick in 2013 who sat out all of last season while rehabbing and recovering from the second of 2 serious college knee injuries. Monitor his offseason progress as he has a chance to come out of nowhere and make some noise in the Niners' run-heavy attack.

San Francisco 49ers RB Marcus Lattimore (knee) said he believed he could have placed in December but knew that the team was going to shut him down for the entire season. Lattimore said he will participate in the offseason workouts.

Huddle Up: Frank Gore will have finger surgery this offseason and is accumulating the miles, so a healthy Lattimore should compete for playing time in 2014. And if he thinks he was good to go at the end of the 2013 season, he should be more than ready for offseason workouts and a training camp battle come August.

Updating a previous report, San Francisco 49ers RB Marcus Lattimore (knee) is expected to be healthy for the start of the offseason and to compete for a job at running back, according to head coach Jim Harbaugh Tuesday, Jan. 21.

Huddle Up: Keep an eye on Lattimore -- a 4th-round pick who sat out the 2013 season -- with Frank Gore not getting any younger.

The San Francisco 49ers have placed RB Marcus Lattimore (knee), OT Luke Marquardt (foot), DE Cornellius Carradine (knee) and DE Quinton Dial (toe) on the Non-Football Injury list.

Huddle Up: No surprise here as Lattimore, the Niners' second 4th-round pick, is expected to have what amounts to an NFL "redshirt" season as he recovers from his college knee injuries.

San Francisco 49ers RB Marcus Lattimore (knee) said RB Frank Gore reached out to him when he was injured at the University of South Carolina, and now the two are teammates. Lattimore said Friday, June 28, that he is unlikely to be ready for training camp, although he has been doing sprints and working with the training staff. Lattimore indicated a midseason return could be possible.

Huddle Up: No surprise or rush here as Lattimore was drafted with his down-the-road potential in mind. In the meantime, the Niners are well-stocked in the backfield with Gore, Kendall Hunter and LaMichael James.

San Francisco 49ers RB Marcus Lattimore said he would be fine with sitting out the entire 2013 season if that is what the team thinks is best. Head coach Jim Harbaugh said Lattimore's anterior cruciate ligament looks good, but the team wants him to slow down on his cutting drills.

Huddle Up: Sounds as if Lattimore is setting expectations for dynasty league drafters. Lattimore still has plenty of upside, but right now he appears to be bracing himself for a redshirt season.
