News: Hunter's season is over before it began. The 49ers confirmed Saturday that Hunter tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during Friday's practice. Hunter began training camp as the No. 2 running back behind Frank Gore. Impact: Hunter's knee buckled awkwardly as he tried to make a move during a non-contact portion of practice. His injury leaves LaMichael James, Carlos Hyde, Jewell Hampton and Marcus Lattimore to fill the void behind Gore. Hunter rushed for 358 yards and three touchdowns on 78 carries last season. He has averaged 4.6 yards per carry in three years since San Francisco selected him in the fourth round of the 2011 draft out of Oklahoma State.(STATS, 11:48am)

News: Hunter has been diagnosed with a torn ACL, CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco reports. Impact: MRI results confirmed the 49ers' worst fears, ruling Hunter out for the entire 2014 season. Rookie second-round pick Carlos Hyde and 2013 fourth-round pick Marcus Lattimore (knee/hamstring) will likely be asked to fill the void behind Frank Gore. With the 49ers favoring a run-heavy approach and already expected to utilize multiple running backs, Hyde has an excellent opportunity. There's a much higher degree of uncertainty concerning Lattimore, who has yet to prove that he's fully recovered from the devastating knee injury he suffered back at South Carolina in 2012. LaMichael James and Jewel Hampton round out the depth chart at running back, and while the 49ers seemingly wanted James to focus on the return game, Hunter's injury may change that sentiment.(RotoWire, )

News: Hunter has had an MRI on his knee, and the 49ers are worried that the running back's injury may be significant,'s Ian Rapoport reports. Impact: The 49ers are waiting on results of the MRI, meaning there should be more information available by the end of the weekend. Should Hunter's injury turn out to be significant, the 49ers do have other intriguing options behind Frank Gore, highlighted by 2014 second-round pick Carlos Hyde and 2013 fourth-round pick Marcus Lattimore (knee/hamstring). Even if he turns out to be fine, Hunter will face competition from the aforementioned two running backs, with Hyde in particularly looking like a serious threat.(RotoWire, )

News: Hunter sustained a leg injury Friday, ESPN's Ed Werder reports. Impact: The 49ers haven't revealed the seriousness of the injury, but Werder's source within the team said it didn't look good when he suffered the injury. With questions abut Marcus Lattimore's health already being raised this summer, Carlos Hyde is looking more and more like the backup to own in San Francisco.(RotoWire, )
