No go for Week 12

Hasty (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: With no activity on the practice field yet since coming out of Week 9 action with an ankle injury, Hasty will miss a third contest in a row. Even when healthy and available, though, he averaged just 5.2 touches for 27.8 yards from scrimmage while scoring one rushing TD in his five appearances. In the meantime, Elijah Mitchell (rib/finger) is listed a questionable for Week 12. Assuming he's active, he should resume his role as the 49ers' top running back, with Jeff Wilson and Trey Sermon on hand for any snaps the Mitchell doesn't receive.

No activity Thursday

Hasty (ankle) was a non-participant on Thursday's injury report, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Analysis: Hasty already has missed two games as a result of an ankle injury and appears poised for a third consecutive absence due to his inability to practice since the start of Week 10 prep. Meanwhile, Elijah Mitchell (rib/finger) put in limited work for a second straight session Thursday. It's unclear if Mitchell is trending toward a return to action Sunday against the Vikings, but the 49ers currently have Jeff Wilson, Trey Sermon and Trenton Cannon as healthy RB options on the active roster.

Doesn't practice Wednesday

Hasty (ankle) was listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's injury report, Keiana Martin of the 49ers' official site reports.

Analysis: Hasty hasn't practiced since showing up as a DNP on the 49ers' first Week 10 injury report with an ankle issue. Meanwhile, Elijah Mitchell returned in a limited fashion Wednesday after being held out all of last week and from Sunday's game at Jacksonville after surgery on his finger. If Mitchell puts himself in a position to play Week 12 against the Vikings, he should resume his role as San Francisco's No. 1 running back. As for Hasty, he'll have two more sessions to do the same this week, but Jeff Wilson and Trey Sermon are healthy in the event Hasty misses a third consecutive contest.

Not playing Sunday

Hasty (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Analysis: Hasty's absence will create a void in the 49ers' backfield on passing downs, but his status is a secondary concern to that of lead runner Elijah Mitchell (finger), who is listed as doubtful for the contest. In the likely event Mitchell joins Hasty on the 49ers' Week 11 inactive list, the team would be left with Jeff Wilson, Trey Sermon and Trenton Cannon as their available backs, assuming no other additions at the position prior to Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff. Given that neither Sermon nor Cannon has played a snap on offense since Week 5, Wilson could be entrusted with a three-down workhorse role against Jacksonville.

No practice Thursday

Hasty (ankle) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Analysis: Hasty has been dealing with ankle injuries for much of the season, missing four games to date (including Monday's win against the Rams). He's been joined on the sidelines this week by Elijah Mitchell, who is recovering from a procedure on a broken finger. Mitchell seems to be trending toward playing Sunday at Jacksonville, so if Hasty is unable to suit up Jeff Wilson will be the main complementary option out of the 49ers backfield.

Nov 18, 2021 4:21 PM EST

Misses practice

Hasty (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Analysis: Hasty has largely seen playing time in obvious passing situations, of which there were few in Monday's 31-10 win over the Rams. His absence didn't have much impact on the game, but it did free up some extra snaps for Jeff Wilson, who could now take on a larger role if Hasty is out again and Elijah Mitchell has any limitations after undergoing finger surgery Tuesday.

Nov 17, 2021 1:45 PM EST

Ruled out Monday

Hasty (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Rams, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Hasty was unable to practice all week, and he'll be forced to miss Monday's primetime matchup as a result. He logged just seven carries for seven yards while hauling in eight of 12 targets for 55 yards across the last three games, but Jeff Wilson and Trenton Cannon could see additional work against the Rams.

Nov 13, 2021 3:24 PM EST

Absent from practice

Hasty (ankle) didn't practice Friday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Analysis: With Hasty missing back-to-back practices, Jeff Wilson may fill in as the passing-down back Monday night against the Rams. Hasty is averaging 2.6 carries and 2.6 catches for 27.8 total yards per game, with 29-to-36 percent snap share in each of his five appearances this season.

Nov 12, 2021 3:41 PM EST

Tending to ankle issue

Hasty didn't practice Thursday due to an ankle injury.

Analysis: In his five appearances this season, Hasty hasn't been more than a change-of-pace option out of the 49ers backfield, averaging 3.7 yards on his 13 carries, gathering in 13 of 18 targets for 91 yards and scoring one TD on the ground. Now with a health concern in tow, he could be in danger of losing the backup gig behind Elijah Mitchell to Jeff Wilson, who was activated from the PUP list Saturday. Wilson was active but didn't see any action this past Sunday against the Cardinals, which could change if Hasty's injury lingers. In any case, Hasty will have two more sessions to put himself into a position to be available Monday versus the Rams.

Nov 11, 2021 4:06 PM EST

Continues change-of-pace role

Hasty had one carry for two yards and three receptions (four targets) for 11 yards in Sunday's 31-17 loss to Arizona.

Analysis: The 49ers activated Jeff Wilson (knee) off of the PUP list prior to Sunday's contest, so there was a chance the veteran would usurp Hasty on the depth chart. Head coach Kyle Shanahan decided to keep his top two backs untouched on the depth chart, for this week at least. Neither back will have much value against the Rams next Monday so long as Elijah Mitchell remains healthy enough to start, with Wilson being the likely benefactor in terms of fantasy for any games Mitchell is forced to miss for the remainder of the season.

Nov 8, 2021 10:08 AM EST

Two catches in win

Hasty rushed three times for four yards and caught both of his targets for 29 yards in Sunday's 33-22 win over the Bears.

Analysis: Hasty continued to serve a backup/receiving role behind Elijah Mitchell, seeing the field for 19 offensive snaps (34 percent). The 25-year-old simply isn't getting enough usage to serve any kind of fantasy role while Mitchell continues to run wild on opposing defenses. Hasty won't garner much attention in an NFC West matchup against the Cardinals next Sunday.

Nov 1, 2021 2:53 AM EST

Struggles in return

Hasty (ankle) was on the field for 19 offensive snaps (34 percent) Sunday, finishing with three carries for one yard and three receptions (six targets) for 15 yards in a 30-18 loss to the Colts.

Analysis: Hasty lived up to his surname, returning to action after spending the minimum time of three games on injured reserve. The 24-year-old resumed his role as the club's change-of-pace/third-down back. Hasty won't provide much fantasy value in this role so long as Elijah Mitchell (18 carries, 107 yards and a touchdown) is healthy and performing well.

Oct 25, 2021 1:54 PM EST

Will be active Sunday

Hasty (ankle) was activated off of injured reserve Saturday and will be available to play in Sunday's contest against the Colts, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Analysis: Hasty has been sidelined since suffering a high-ankle sprain against the Eagles in Week 2. He was designated to return off IR ahead of the 49ers' first Week 7 practice Monday, and now, he has officially been activated to the 53-man roster. The 25-year-old should step back into his change-of-pace role behind Elijah Mitchell and Trey Sermon on Sunday.

Oct 23, 2021 3:11 PM EST

On track to play Week 7

Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Hasty (ankle) will be activated from injured reserve prior to the 49ers' game Sunday against the Colts, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Coming out of a Week 6 bye, the 49ers designated Hasty to return from IR ahead of their first Week 7 practice Monday. With Shanahan noting that Hasty incurred no setbacks with his sprained ankle throughout the week of practice, the 25-year-old should be ready to step back into a change-of-pace role Sunday behind Elijah Mitchell and Trey Sermon, the 49ers' top two options on the ground. Expect an official roster move to be made no later Saturday.

Oct 22, 2021 1:38 PM EST

Practicing Friday, could face Colts

Hasty (ankle) is participating in Friday's practice, and he's eligible to be removed from IR before Sunday's game against the Colts, Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury, East Bay Times reports.

Analysis: If Hasty looks good in practice, he could re-enter San Francisco's running back rotation as soon as Sunday. Based on his usage prior to his IR stint, Hasty will likely work as the No. 2 option behind Elijah Mitchell and ahead of Trey Sermon once he's cleared to return. Hasty will need to be officially removed from IR before he can suit up, though as this point, it's almost a foregone conclusion that he'll be back at some point before the 21-day activation window expires.

Oct 22, 2021 12:29 PM EST

Designated to return from IR

The 49ers designated Hasty (ankle) to return from injured reserve Monday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: Hasty had nine touches for 59 yards before suffering a high-ankle sprain during San Francisco's second game of the season. The 49ers backfield has been decimated by injuries this year, but they are coming off their bye week, which may have allowed them to finally get their running back room healthy. Hasty will have a 21-day period to be added to the active roster, but if he isn't, he will return to IR for the rest of the season.

Oct 18, 2021 11:35 AM EST

Moves to IR

Hasty (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: This was to be expected given Hasty suffered a high ankle sprain which generally entails a multi-week recovery timetable. The 49ers are banged up at running back with Hasty, Jeff Wilson (knee) and Raheem Mostert (knee) all unavailable while Elijah Mitchell (shoulder) is considered highly doubtful. The carnage leaves Trey Sermon at the top of the depth chart with recent signees Jacques Patrick and Trenton Cannon as backups.

Sep 25, 2021 2:30 PM EST

Has high ankle sprain

The injury Hasty suffered Sunday against the Eagles was a high ankle sprain which coach Kyle Shanahan said will keep him "out for awhile," Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: High ankle sprains normally entail multi-week recovery timelines, so Hasty can be ruled out of Sunday's game against the Packers and may need to miss additional time beyond that as well. Fourth-stringer Trenton Cannon is the only healthy running back left on San Francisco's roster, though the extent of the injuries sustained by rookies Elijah Mitchell (shoulder) and Trey Sermon (concussion) is yet to be determined.

Sep 20, 2021 1:19 PM EST

Suffers ankle injury

Hasty hurt his ankle during Sunday's game at Philadelphia, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Analysis: One week after losing starting running back Raheem Mostert for the season with a knee injury, the entire 49ers backfield got banged up in same way Sunday. Hasty himself had nine touches for 59 yards from scrimmage before his departure in the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, new starter Elijah Mitchell notched 19 touches for 53 total yards as of the two-minute warning while tending to a shoulder injury, and Trey Sermon was evaluated for a concussion following the first potential carry of his career, which was nullified because of a penalty.

Sep 19, 2021 1:00 PM EST

Part of 49ers' RB trio

Hasty is active alongside rookies Elijah Mitchell and Trey Sermon for Sunday's contest at Philadelphia.

Analysis: With Raheem Mostert out for the season due to a knee injury suffered Week 1, Hasty likely will be the 49ers' No. 2 RB moving forward behind the expected lead ballcarrier Mitchell. After Mostert went down last Sunday in Detroit, Mitchell took over and had 19 carries for 104 yards and one touchdown. Meanwhile, Hasty received complementary work en route to two touches for 18 yards and one TD. Sermon, a 2021 third-round pick, will be available for the first game action of his career, but it remains to be seen how he'll mix in behind Mitchell and Hasty.
