San Francisco 49ers running back Marcus Lattimore believes that he will be able to make his debut for the NFC West side in week 10 of the 2013 NFL season.

Marcus Lattimore has said that he wants to be ready to make his debut for the San Francisco 49ers in week 10 of the 2013 NFL season.

The running back is recovering from an injury sustained during a college game last October, which left him with a dislocated knee and three torn ligaments.

The 21-year-old told The Los Angeles Times: "My best-case scenario is in Week 10, something like that. I get out there and will be full speed and ready to go.

"I could play now, without question. I probably wouldn't look my best. But if I was called upon, it could happen. I guess America is a country of stories like this. Just going through adversity and being able to get back up.

"People gravitate toward that, I feel, because just when you're on your job and you don't feel like getting back up, you think about that."

In week 10, the 49ers have a home game against the Carolina Panthers.
