SANTA CLARA – Running back Marcus Lattimore, who did not see any action as a rookie due to a knee injury sustained in his final year in college, will not be at full speed for the 49ers’ rookie minicamp this weekend.

The good news is that Lattimore’s knee is not giving him any problems, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said on Friday.

“It’s not the knee,” Harbaugh said. “It’s something else that he’s working through. And we’re going to be going at a speed the doctors allow him and his body allows him to go.

“The days he was full speed, he looked very good.”

Harbaugh did not answer when asked, specifically, what Lattimore is experiencing. But Harbaugh initially appeared to reach back to his right hamstring area when asked a follow-up about Lattimore’s condition.

Lattimore spent last season on the non-football injury list after sustaining a dislocated right knee and three torn ligaments while playing his final game for South Carolina in October 2012.

It's doubtful Lattimore will participate in any full-speed drills, but he could be available for walk-through activities.
