Marcus Lattimore is currently on San Francisco’s Active/Non-Football Injury List. However, the fourth-round pick remains determined to make an impact for the 49ers.
How soon is the question.
Lattimore told Yahoo! Sports that he feels like he could practice now, but will wait until team physicians deem him 100-percent ready to join his 49ers teammates. Lattimore suffered multiple knee injuries in college and is nine months removed from a devastating injury that caused him to slide in the 2013 NFL Draft.
The star college running back at South Carolina said he’s, “cool” with the rehab process with the 49ers. Lattimore added, “It gives me more time to make sure I’m really ready when I do practice.”
Lattimore won’t be out on with the 49ers at training camp practices, but he’ll continue to work his way back to playing shape. It’s a situation football fans all over the country will monitor until he makes his triumphant return.
