Hayne rushed for 54 yards on eight carries and returned three punts for 84 yards against the Cowboys in Week 2 of the preseason, which was a performance that probably helped earn him a spot on San Francisco's final roster. In total, he rushed for 175 yards on 25 carries, which was second in the NFL behind the Lions' Zach Zenner this preseason.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the 49ers are currently 2.5-point home underdogs for their Week 1 matchup with the Vikings on Monday Night Football. The total currently sits at 41.5 points.
