49ers RB Kendall Hunter nearing comeback from torn Achilles

49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree will need at least six months of healing time to come back from his torn Achilles. Maybe he can take some pointers from teammate Kendall Hunter @KendallHunter32, who is in the latter stages of his own Achilles rehab. Hunter tore that tendon back in November. He is taking part in some individual drills during organized team activities and told CSNBayArea.com earlier that week that he can do "anything and everything," including be able to run and cut.
"It's going well," Hunter said. "I'm doing everything. I'm just keeping it to whatever the trainers want."
Hunter is fully expected to be ready by the start of the season, which will open more than nine months after Hunter underwent surgery.

Fantasy Analysis:

Hunter might even be cleared in time to put in a full training camp. He and LaMichael James @LaMichaelJames are expected to be involved in a three-man backfield with Frank Gore. Of course, Gore is still the lead dog. He is currently sitting out OTAs with an undisclosed condition, but head coach Jim Harbaugh said it was "nothing too serious."
