SANTA CLARA -- Running back Carlos Hyde was diagnosed with a concussion Friday, one of several injuries to 49ers starters in the 21-10 loss to Green Bay.
Hyde had four carries for 30 yards in the first half, including a 27-yard run that set up the 49ers’ only touchdown. He complained of feeling sick at the beginning of the third quarter and was taken into the locker room where he was diagnosed with the concussion. Hyde is now in the league’s concussion program, which he must pass before he resumes practicing in full.
He is unlikely to play in Thursday’s preseason finale against the Chargers. The 49ers’ first regular-season game is Sept. 12. Hyde’s top backup, Shaun Draughn, has not played in the last two preseason games after taking a hit to the ribs during a scrimmage with the Broncos. His injury is not considered long term.
Receiver Bruce Ellington (hamstring) and defensive lineman Quinton Dial (knee) also left the game in the first half. Chip Kelly had no updates on their condition. Fellow starters Eli Harold, an outside linebacker, and safety Eric Reid (thumb) left the game but were available to return.
