Hunter, who missed last season with a torn ACL, is returning to form, according to GM Trent Baalke, reports. "He's back to being Kendall," Baalke noted. "His speed is back to where it was pre-injury. He's really had a fine offseason."

While his return to health bolsters the 49ers' backfield depth, touches may be hard to come by for Hunter out of the gate this season. Though Frank Gore is no longer in the team's mix, Carlos Hyde in line to be the top option at running back, with Reggie Bush on hand in a change-of-pace role and rookie Mike Davis viewed by Baalke as capable of handing a three-down role.

49ers GM Trent Baalke "made it clear" Sunday the team hopes to re-sign contract-year RB Kendall Hunter despite his right ACL tear.

The 49ers could probably keep Hunter for very cheap after he tore both his Achilles' and ACL in a three-year span. "We'd love to have Kendall," Baalke said. "Kendall is a tremendous football player and an even better young man. He is a mentally tough young man, so I'd expect that he'd come back very well from the injury." Dynasty league owners of Hunter can consider dropping him.
