49ers RB Carlos Hyde (foot, out) missed practice again Thursday and is out for Week 11. Shaun Draughn will get the start and is a volume play in a terrible matchup against the Seahawks. He had 20 touches in the team’s last game.

Hyde has not played since Oct. 22, citing a stress fracture in his left foot. And if Hyde does not play this weekend on the artificial turf of the Seattle Seahawks’ CenturyLink Field, the running back duties figure to again fall on the new guy.
The 49ers obviously liked what they saw in Draughn enough to part ways with the more-accomplished Pierre Thomas after his one-game audition last week. The team did sign Travaris Cadet as a pass-catching threat and he could cut into Draughn's workload. It will be a tough matchup at Seattle in Week 11.

49ers RB Carlos Hyde (foot, out) missed practice all week and is out for Week 9. Hyde is expected to sit out through the team’s Week 10 bye, so Pierre Thomas, Kendall Gaskins and Shaun Draughn to split up the work.

Perhaps signaling Carlos Hyde will remain shelved by a foot injury, the 49ers added their second veteran running back in as many days, agreeing to terms Tuesday with Pierre Thomas, according to his agent.
The 49ers also needed depth at the position, preferably from experienced backs, to compensate for the potential season-ending injuries Sunday to Reggie Bush (knee) and Mike Davis (hand). Hyde suffered a stress fracture Oct. 11 and finally was kept from suiting up last game, which the 49ers lost 27-6 at St. Louis.
Thomas has had some workouts, but this is the first job he's landed for 2015. He could help the 49ers in the passing game, replacing Bush who was injured last week. With so many new pieces in place in the 9ers backfield now, it's hard to tell just how they will all be used if Hyde remains out. Given how Thomas has been a free agent for so long, it's hard to see him having a huge fantasy impact. But those struggling at the position may want to take a chance, perhaps especially in PPR leagues.

The 6-foot, 205-pound Draughn played sparingly with the Browns this year, carrying just twice for 10 yards and catching two passes for 1 yard. Undrafted in 2011, Draughn has also spent time with Washington, Kansas City, Baltimore, Indianapolis, Chicago and San Diego.
Draughn has rushed for 264 yards and two touchdowns in his five NFL seasons.
