49ers Medical Exam Reveals No Structural Damage In RB Marcus Lattimore's Knee
Running back Marcus Lattimore underwent an extensive medical examination Thursday at Stanford, and the 49ers liked what their team doctors saw.
"Everything looks good structurally with all the guys that we drafted," 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said Friday. "The ACL looks really good for Marcus. We have to take a step back in terms of some of the cutting because we want that inside of the knee, the lateral side of the knee, to heal fully."
Lattimore, once a potential first-round draft draft pick, sustained a grisly injury to his right leg in October that dislocated his knee and tore three ligaments. The 49ers selected the South Carolina running back in the fourth round with the No. 131 overall pick.
The 49ers want to be cautious with Lattimore's rehab, so they are not rushing to get him on the field. He has not been cleared for any on-field work. He is expected to open training camp on the non-football injury list (because the injury did not occur while with an NFL team).
