San Francisco 49ers running back Marcus Lattimore and wide receiver Bruce Ellington will begin training camp later this month on the non-football injury list, according to the team's transaction report.
Lattimore, who had back-to-back season-ending knee injures in 2011 and 2012 with South Carolina, sat out his rookie season with the 49ers and is hoping to get back on the field this year. He has said several times this year that he is close to being back to 100 percent.
Lattimore will have more competition this season as rookie Carlos Hyde from Ohio State joins a group of running back trying to challenge veteran Frank Gore for playing time.
According to the NFL.com, the selection of Hyde is potentially an indication that 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh and other team officials are not convinced of Lattimore's progress.
Never miss a local story.
Ellington is being held out due to a non-disclosed injury that media reports described as minor.
Players on this list count against the 90-man roster limit but can be activated any time before the final cuts of training camp.
