Thoughts on Morris becoming the 3rd Down/Goal Line back?

— Jimmy G’s Beard (@jimmyGsBeard) August 14, 2018

I don’t know if the 49ers have defined a plan for Morris other than giving him practice and preseason reps while Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida deal with injuries]]>

<![CDATA[49ers sign veteran Alfred Morris to bolster banged-up backfield corps]]>
They expect to sign free agent running back Alfred Morris once he passes a physical today. Then, he will join the team this week during their joint practices in Houston with the Texans, and possibly play against the Texans this Saturday.

The 49ers want Morris to play as soon as possible, because their top two running backs, Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida, are out. McKinnon has a strained right calf]]>

With their top two running backs sidelined for the remainder of the preseason, the 49ers plan to sign RB Alfred Morris, coach Kyle Shanahan said on Monday. Morris, 29, a six-year NFL veteran, will join the 49ers in Houston in advance of the team’s two practices against the Texans and Saturday’s exhibition game. (NBCS Bay Area - Matt Maiocco)

FF Today's Take: Shanahan later told reporters he believes Morris has a chance to make the team. It feels more like Shanahan reaching out to an old friend familiar with his system in hopes he can help San Francisco's depleted depth chart at running back get through the preseason. Owners need to keep an eye on how he looks in the preseason, but the odds are against him making a fantasy impact if Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida start the regular season out healthy.]]>

McKinnon was removed from Sunday's practice with what was thought to be a knee injury, and he then spent the rest of the day watching from the sidelines. However, a recent MRI apparently showed the running back sustained no structural or nerve damage, so a long-term absence seems unlikely. The 49ers will reportedly give McKinnon a week of rest and then re-evaluate his situation next week.

MRI on Jerick McKinnon’s knee was what 49ers hoped: per source, “good and just a muscle strain.” (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: It seems as the MRI revealed just a muscle strain for McKinnon and no serious damage. Early McKinnon drafters can breathe a sigh of relief. It wouldn't be surprising to see McKinnon held out of practice this week and possible this week's pre-season game against the Texans.]]>

McKinnon was held out of the second half of practice Sunday after tweaking his leg. The 49ers will practice again Monday before traveling to Houston for joint practices Wednesday and Thursday. The two teams play an exhibition game on Saturday]]>

The results of the MRI are in, and McKinnon has dodged a bullet with his potential knee injury. With no structural damage evident, he may be absent from practice in the short term but won't be joining backfield mate Matt Breida (shoulder) in the recovery room for a lengthy spell. Only time will tell whether McKinnon will be ready for Saturday's preseason game in Houston.

Just a handful of plays into the team portion of Sunday's practice, San Francisco 49ers running back Jerick McKinnon came up grabbing at his right knee.After limping to the side to receive attention from the medical staff and sitting out the rest of practice, McKinnon was slated for an MRI to check for potential structural damage on Sunday afternoon, according to the team. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: With Matt Breida already on the shelf until the season opener, the 49ers are hoping for good news on McKinnon's MRI. McKinnon signed autographs for fans after the injury and stated that he was fine but we'll await further details. Joe Williams and Raheem Mostert are the current healthy options on the depth chart.]]>
