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.

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.
