49ers | Marcus Lattimore to miss training camp

San Francisco 49ers RB Marcus Lattimore (knee) said RB Frank Gore reached out to him when he was injured at the University of South Carolina, and now the two are teammates. Lattimore said Friday, June 28, that he is unlikely to be ready for training camp, although he has been doing sprints and working with the training staff. Lattimore indicated a midseason return could be possible.
It sounds like Lattimore expects to start out on the Physically-Unable-to-Perform (PUP) list. For fantasy owners in redraft leagues, there is no sense wasting a roster spot on Lattimore, but those in long-term keeper formats who have ample space, he is worth stashing due to his potential. But keep in mind the possibility exists that he doesn't play a down in 2013.
