Rookie running back Jewel Hampton, who underwent offseason foot surgery, will return to 49ers practice on Tuesday, the team said.
Meanwhile, rookie outside linebacker Darius Fleming, a fifth-round draft pick, will remain on the physically-unable-to-perform list for the remainder of the season. Fleming sustained a torn ACL in his left knee in one of the opening drills of the 49ers' rookie minicamp in May.
