There were large expectations for Hyde coming into an already crowded backfield. With a large amount of depth at the position, Hyde had to compete against Kendall Hunter, LaMichael James, Marcus Lattimore, and 49ers all-time leading rusher, Frank Gore. A series of injuries would move Hyde up the depth chart to the back up running back behind Gore. Last season's backup running back Kendall Hunter tore his ACL during training camp, Marcus Lattimore retired due to a previously suffered ACL and MCL tear in college, and LaMichael James sprained his elbow. James was later released by the team. In the season opener against the Dallas Cowboys, Hyde rushed for 50 yards on 7 carries and 1 Touchdown. Over the next couple weeks the team wouldn't feature Hyde very much giving him a total of just 7 carries. In week 10 vs the New Orleans Saints during a close game, the team would turn to Frank Gore leaning on him, leaving Hyde on the bench for most the game but Hyde showed a lot of promise rushing for 36 yards on 4 carries and 1 touchdown. After two straight losses the 49ers were eliminated from playoffs so the team would look to get the young guys more reps. In week 15 against the Seahawks Hyde was playing well until he was benched in the fourth quarter as a result of a sprained ankle and back injury he suffered during the game. Hyde would miss the final two games of the season. He finished the season with 83 carries for 333 yards and 4 Touchdowns.
