Marcus Lattimore Says He Would be ‘Fine’ Sitting Out One Year in NFL, Reality of Opportunity Still Hasn’t Hit Him (Video)

San Francisco 49ers rookie Marcus Lattimore has had quite a year.

The former South Carolina running back suffered a season-ending injury when he tore three ligaments in his right knee. Even though he hasn’t played football since October, Lattimore was drafted in the fourth round of the NFL draft in April by the 49ers.

Lattimore has recovered well from the injury and is able to run, but he is not able to make sharp cuts yet. 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh has said he hasn’t made any decisions about whether or not Lattimore will see action in the 2013 season, but he hasn’t ruled anything out.

Check out the video below to hear Lattimore talk about where he was on draft day and his thoughts on possibly playing in 2013.
