The San Francisco 49ers received bad news this morning as RB Kendall Hunter suffered a torn ACL. An injury that occurred just a few feet away from me as he tried to make a cut against the grain, Hunter was slow to get up while needing help from CB Perrish Cox.

This is not the first time Hunter suffered an injury as he tore his Achilles in a matchup against the New Orleans Saints on November 25, 2012. With Hunter out for the season that now opens the door for RB Carlos Hyde who is my choice as the next man up!
