WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Jalen Hurd | Free Agent WR

The 49ers placed Jalen Hurd (knee) on injured reserve.

Hurd was able to stay healthy enough to make the final roster for the Niners, but unfortunately he's still struggling with injuries and will now miss at least three games while on injured reserve. Hopefully the former third-round pick can get back to 100% soon.

Jalen Hurd suffered a torn ACL and has officially been placed on injured reserve.

This was reportedly the fear after initial tests following his injury in practice a few days ago, and it’s since been confirmed by the MRI. Hurd missed all of his rookie season last year with a back injury, and now he’ll miss all of the 2020 season, so it’s been a very unfortunate and unlucky start to Hurd’s NFL career. He’s looked poised to be a versatile and dynamic weapon in Kyle Shanahan’s offense, but health simply hasn’t cooperated since he was selected in the third round of the 2019 draft. We wish Hurd the best of luck on his recovery and hope to see him 100% and able to make a huge impact in 2021.

Jalen Hurd believed to have suffered serious knee injury.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo says the 49ers fear a torn ACL for Hurd, but he's undergoing an MRI this morning after suffering the injury during yesterday's practice. We just have to hope for the best, but this sounds like incredibly tough news for Hurd after his rookie season was wiped out by a back issue. More information should become available sometime today.

The 49ers are placing Jalen Hurd (back) on injured reserve, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo.

Hurd had a stress reaction in his back that's held him out for the first three games of the season, and it apparently has not made the progress the team had hoped. The third-round rookie will now have eight weeks to heal, and he can come off injured reserve as a designated-to-return player. Hurd obviously does not need to be owned in redraft leagues, but he can return for Week 13 against the Ravens.

Jalen Hurd (back) was officially ruled out for Week 1.

This was fully expected, and the rookie receiver should be considered week-to-week with his back injury.

Jalen Hurd (back) is "not looking good" for Week 1.

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan says the back injury is worse than thought, and the rookie receiver is doubtful to suit up to open the season. The versatile Hurd brings a physical presence to the Niners, so his loss hurts the offense; but he wasn't getting drafted in most fantasy leagues before this.

The 49ers have selected Baylor wide receiver Jalen Hurd with the No. 67 pick (third round) in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Receivers are starting to fly off the board, and the Niners have decided to double up after getting Deebo Samuel earlier in the night. Hurd—a former highly-routed running back of the Tennessee Volunteers that's very athletic at six-foot-five and 226 pounds—will be a unique chess piece for Kyle Shanahan’s offense, as they could give him snaps out wide, in the slot, or even in the backfield. Fantasy value might be difficult to come by as a rookie, but Hurd will be a high-upside target in dynasty leagues.
