49ers' lose-Hayne hardly used in match
September 21, 2015 3:55 am
Jarryd Hayne’s second game in the NFL raised more questions than it answered.
The former league star was used on just three plays, all of which came in the first half of the 49ers crushing 43-18 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Social media, including the 49ers’ official Twitter account, didn’t immediately make mention of Hayne being injured.
If he was not hurt, Hayne’s immediate playing future is up in the air.
San Francisco went into the match without running back Reggie Bush and return man Bruce Ellington.
That suggested the door may be open for Hayne to be tested in regular-season play.
Instead, his four touches – one of which was calling for a fair catch from a punt – were the sum total of a disappointing day.
His two chances to serve as a running back resulted in the gain of just three yards.
As for the rest of the 49ers, the loss was a reality check following their week one win.
