The San Francisco 49ers activated running back Kendall Hunter from the active/physically-unable-to-perform list Saturday.
Hunter was put on the list as a precaution early in training camp. He was recovering from an Achilles injury he sustained during week 12 last season against the New Orleans Saints.
Hunter averaged 5.2 yards per carry, running for 371 yards with two touchdowns last year.
He is the backup to starter Frank Gore but is also getting competition from LaMichael James and Anthony Dixon.
