Breida rushed 17 times for 101 yards and a touchdown and caught three of four targets for 31 yards and another score in Monday night's 27-23 loss to the Giants. Breida was again San Francisco's standout offensive player, doing damage both on the ground and through the air. The second-year back struck first with a three-yard touchdown rush in the second quarter, then hauled in an 11-yard score shortly after halftime. Overall, Breida's 132 scrimmage yards marked his second-most this season, offering a resurgence following 104 total yards and zero touchdowns in his previous three games combined. Seemingly back to his healthy self, Breida now enters the Niners' bye week for extra rest ahead of a Week 12 matchup with the Buccaneers.
Breida (ankle) rushed 12 times for 41 yards and brought in his only target for three yards in the 49ers' 34-3 win over the Raiders on Thursday. He also recovered a fumble. Breida was outperformed by backfield mate Raheem Mostert, who ultimately suffered what appears to be a season-ending forearm injury during the contest. That projects to leave Breida in the driver's seat for lead-back duties moving forward, and the 11 days off before a Week 10 Monday night battle against the Giants should do the 23-year-old back some good. Breida has been hampered by an ankle injury of late, which appears to have robbed him of some of his trademark explosion -- after averaging between 4.2 and 12.5 yards per rush in his first six games, Breida has posted yard-per-carry figures of 2.6 to 3.4 over his last three contests.
Breida (ankle) is expected to suit up for Thursday's game against the Raiders, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. There's little question the banged-up running back will be available, as he's played through all manner of injuries this season. Due to the presence of Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Alfred Morris, though, Breida has a bit of competition for reps. Moreover, there's the distinct chance Breida spends time with the medical staff at some point during the contest, capping his potential.
Breida (ankle) was listed as a limited participant at Tuesday's walkthrough, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Breida has been limited through the first two practices of the week, although both sessions have been walkthroughs due to the short week of preparation for Thursday's game against the Raiders. The 23-year-old was expected to be limited heading into Sunday's game against the Cardinals but still received 16 carries and generally appeared no worse for wear. Breida appears on track to be ready for Thursday's Bay Area matchup.
Breida (ankle) was listed as limited on the 49ers' estimated injury report Monday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports. Despite an expectation that he wouldn't play a full allotment of snaps Sunday at Arizona, Breida led the backfield with 31 (of 66) snaps on offense, versus 12 for Raheem Mostert and 11 for Alfred Morris. Breida proceeded to receive all of his work on the ground for a third consecutive game, tallying 42 yards on a season-high 16 carries. The 49ers are facing a short week with a Thursday night matchup against the Raiders looming, but Breida's listing indicates he's in line for yet another appearance. Elsewhere in the backfield, Mostert was listed as a non-participant due to an ankle injury, so Breida may not have as much competition for reps Week 9.
