Running back Marcus Lattimore went through his first practice of the season Wednesday with the San Francisco 49ers.
Lattimore, recovering from a knee injury suffered in October 2012 at South Carolina, remains on the non-football injury list. The 49ers have three weeks to evaluate him and his surgically repaired right knee before deciding whether to add him to the active roster.
Lattimore practiced with the team late last year, but he said he is much closer to being in playing shape this year.
“I’m stronger, definitely quicker,” he said. “I didn’t have any confidence going out there last year. I feel stronger; my knee feels better.”
