Carlos Hyde is a fast healer.

The 49ers running back, who was placed on the non-football injury list Tuesday, was removed from the list Wednesday and is free to practice. Hyde’s issue was not disclosed, although he dealt with a calf injury in the spring.

Hyde is expected to get the bulk of the carries at running back in 2015 now that former 49ers running back Frank Gore is with the Colts. Two other young 49ers, pass rusher Aaron Lynch and tackle Trent Brown, also were placed on the non-football injury list but are not expected to remain there long.

Rookie wide receiver DeAndre Smelter could miss the season after tearing his ACL in late November. Center Daniel Kilgore still is recovering from a broken ankle suffered in October. The 49ers’ first full-squad practice is Saturday at 7 p.m.
