The San Francisco 49ers have struggled badly at the start of this 2015 NFL season.

The Niners currently have a 2-5 record through the first seven weeks of the new campaign, and managed to only put up three points on a Seattle Seahawks side that conceded 27 points to the Carolina Panthers last time out.

The 49ers are struggling massively to put points on the board, and things could be set to get a lot worse after an injury to one key star.

Stress Fracture

Carlos Hyde was held to just 40 yards on 11 carries in the loss on Thursday Night Football. Hyde told Tracy Wolfson of CBS Sports before the game that he had a stress fracture in his foot.

Hyde Struggling

“I just put too much pressure, too much weight on it,” Hyde said to, following the win over Baltimore. “It hurts when I put too much weight on it. It just shocked me how bad it hurt when I tried to put too much weight on it, and I just went down.”

When something hurts pretty badly when you try to put weight on it, that is usually a pretty good sign that you shouldn't be playing.

It seems like the Niners are so desperate at the moment that they are willing to play someone in serious pain - not exactly a great look for Tomsula.

Hyde was listed as questionable for the game but ultimately made the cut. It will be interesting to see if playing against the Seahawks actually made the stress fracture worse, which is a very real possibility.
