SANTA CLARA -- Running back Carlos Hyde missed Wednesday’s practice, raising the possibility the 49ers’ top rusher will sit out his third straight game.
Earlier in the day, Jim Tomsula said he thought Hyde would go through a limited practice. Instead, he worked out on a side field while teammates went through the session. The only other 49er who didn’t practice was linebacker NaVorro Bowman, who typically does not take part in Wednesday’s session.
Hyde, the 49ers’ leading rusher, is dealing with a stress fracture on the side of his left foot and hasn’t played -- or practiced in full -- since Oct. 22. The team has signed free agents Shaun Draughn and Travaris Cadet in recent weeks and Draughn at least will be in uniform Sunday against the Seahawks.
Meanwhile, receiver Anquan Boldin (hamstring) was limited while cornerback Tramaine Brock (shin) was a full go. Both missed the team’s most recent game against Atlanta. So did cornerback Kenneth Acker, who is still progressing through the NFL’s concussion protocol but who is expected to be cleared this week.
