49ers place five players on injury lists

The San Francisco 49ers placed offensive Trent Brown, running back Carlos Hyde, linebacker Aaron Lynch and wide received DeAndre Smelter on the active/non-football injury list and guard-center Daniel Kilgore on the active/physically unable to perform list Tuesday.

All five will count against the 90-man roster limit and are eligible to be activated during training camp before the final cuts.

Hyde missed most of the offseason workouts with a calf injury. Kilgore, the starting center last season, suffered a fractured lower leg last year but was expected to be ready for the start of camp.

Smelter, a fourth-round pick in the 2015 NFL Draft, is recovering from a torn ACL in his left knee sustained during the 2014 college season.

Hyde, Brown and Lynch are not projected to miss much practice time. The 49ers’ first full-squad practice is Saturday.
