Running back Marcus Lattimore, who was cleared to resume full practice in the offseason, was one of six players declared on the non-football injury list to open training camp.

The 49ers’ rookies reported to training camp on Wednesday. The non-football injury and physically-unable-to-perform lists are procedural lists from which a player can be removed at any time to begin practice.

Lattimore was allowed to report with the rookies because he does not have an accrued year of NFL service after spending his rookie season on the NFI list due to a knee injury he sustained during his final season at South Carolina.

Wide receiver Bruce Ellington, center Marcus Martin, fullback Trey Millard, cornerback Keith Reaser and guard Brandon Thomas were placed on the non-football list as well. Millard, Reaser and Thomas sustained knee injuries in college that will require significant rehabilitation.

Linebacker Aaron Lynch (hamstring) and Kaleb Ramsey were placed on PUP – the result of injuries sustained while working out with the 49ers.

Safety Jimmie Ward, a first-round draft pick who sat out the entire offseason program after undergoing foot surgery, received full medical clearance to being practicing.
