Conflicting reports have surfaced as to the NFL future of San Francisco 49ers RB Marcus Lattimore, who has yet to play a down in the NFL due to a devastating knee injury he suffered prior to the 2013 NFL draft.
During the 2012 season, Lattimore as a RB for South Carolina was seen as one of the best in the nation, scoring 40 TDs in just 3 seasons and setting numerous South Carolina rushing records. Lattimore was viewed by experts as sure-fire first-round pick when he chose to come out of college. However, on October 27, 2012 he suffered a gruesome leg injury against Tennessee which ended his college football career and was told by doctors he might never walk properly again.
Despite the injury, Lattimore declared for the NFL draft and was taken by the 49ers in the 4th round of the 2013 draft with the 131st overall pick. But Lattimore did not play a down in his first season and has not played at all since.
A report from ESPN’s Adam Caplan indicates that Lattimore is considering retirement but has not made a decision yet.
Meanwhile, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network said that Lattimore has a number of options to consider that do not all necessarily end in retirement:
#49ers RB Marcus Lattimore will meet with trainers and doctors today to figure out the reason for his knee soreness. Decisions loom.

Regardless, whatever Lattimore’s decision may be, he will most likely be making the decision that doesn’t put him at risk for more severe damage to his body.
