  • 49ers' Elijah Mitchell: Officially moved to IR

    The 49ers placed Mitchell (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday. The transaction was fully expected after Mitchell was diagnosed with a MCL sprain in his right knee following his departure from Sunday's rain-soaked season-opening loss to the Bears. Though Mitchell is expected to avoid surgery to address the injury, he's likely to need approximately two months to recover from the sprained knee. Mitchell's absence for the next several weeks should pave the way for rookie third-round selection Tyrion Davis-Price, who was inactive Week 1, to dress on game days, but he still may find himself behind veteran Jeff Wilson and undrafted rookie Jordan Mason in the 49ers' backfield pecking order.

  • 49ers' Elijah Mitchell: Set to miss about eight weeks

    Coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed Monday that Mitchell will miss about eight weeks with an MCL sprain that he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Bears, Matt Barrows of The Athletic Per Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, Mitchell won't need surgery, but an IR stint is looming for the running back. In Mitchell's absence, Jeff Wilson is next up for the 49ers' backfield touches, with Jordan Mason and Tyrion Davis-Price candidates to see added work at running back. The versatile Deebo Samuel also remains in the mix to continue to log rushing attempts.

  • 49ers' Elijah Mitchell: May miss two months with MCL sprain

    Mitchell is expected to be sidelined for about two months after suffering a sprained MCL in Sunday's season opener against the Bears, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. We'll await official confirmation from the 49ers, but based on that estimate, Mitchell is a candidate to go on IR, which would ensure that he misses at least four games. In that scenario, Jeff Wilson, Jordan Mason and Tyrion Davis-Price would be next up for added touches in the team's backfield, with the versatile Deebo Samuel also in the mix to log rushing attempts.

  • 49ers' Elijah Mitchell: Could miss multiple weeks

    Mitchell (knee) underwent an MRI on Monday and is expected to miss time, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. The 49ers will have a clearer picture of Mitchell's recovery timetable once the MRI results reveal the full extent of his right knee injury. The second-year running back was ruled out of Sunday's loss to the Bears after San Francisco's fourth possession, and he was spotted after the contest wearing a brace. An extended absence on Mitchell's behalf likely would propel Jeff Wilson into the No. 1 running back spot, and likewise mean increased work for rookies Jordan Mason (zero touches Week 1) and Tyrion Davis-Price (inactive Week 1). Deebo Samuel also could factor in for more backfield action.

  • 49ers' Elijah Mitchell: Leaves with knee injury Sunday

    Mitchell won't return to Sunday's game at Chicago due to a knee injury, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Mitchell may have been the victim of terrible field conditions on a soggy Soldier Field, but the second-year pro will finish Week 1 with six carries for 41 yards. With rookie third-round pick Tyrion Davis-Price a healthy scratch Sunday, the 49ers' healthy options at running back are Jeff Wilson and Jordan Mason.

  • 49ers' Elijah Mitchell: Start 'Em

    Mitchell is expected to be healthy after dealing with a hamstring injury in training camp, and he should be started in all leagues when he's playing in a favorable matchup. Last year in Week 1 at Detroit is when Mitchell became a household name after he took over for an injured Raheem Mostert (knee) and had 19 carries for 104 yards and a touchdown. He was San Francisco's best running back in 2021, and hopefully he can do that again this year, starting against the Bears.

  • 49ers' Elijah Mitchell: Start Him (Lineup Decisions)

    I'd start him over Javonte Williams, David Montgomery, Nick Chubb and any running back with an ADP of Round 4 or later. He should be solid in DFS, too.

  • 49ers' Elijah Mitchell: Sidesteps injury report

    Mitchell (hamstring) wasn't listed on the 49ers' injury report Wednesday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The 49ers kept Mitchell on the sideline during the preseason due to a hamstring concern, but he now has more than a week of on-field work behind him and was without limitations in the first official practice ahead of the season opener. With his health not in question, the second-year back can assume leadership of the team's backfield, which equated to 94.7 yards from scrimmage per game and seven total touchdowns in 14 appearances (including playoffs) a season ago.

  • 49ers' Elijah Mitchell: Back on practice field

    Mitchell (hamstring) returned to practice Sunday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. It's unclear how much work Mitchell may be able to handle in individual and team work, but he was spotted going through agility drills in the portion of the session open to the media. He didn't play at all this preseason as he tended to a hamstring issue that has kept him sidelined from practice since at least Aug. 10, but he now appears to be ramping up his activity with an aim to be available for a Week 1 road matchup with the Bears on Sept. 11 against the Bears. Once healthy, Mitchell will serve as the 49ers' unquestioned No. 1 running back.

  • 49ers' Elijah Mitchell: Expected back for Week 1

    The 49ers expect Mitchell (hamstring) to return in time for Week 1 at Chicago, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports. Mitchell hasn't practiced since at least Aug. 10 and won't play in any preseason games. His spot atop the depth chart isn't in question, but there is doubt about his ability to stay healthy after he suffered a handful of different injuries last last year, missing six games and then having minor knee surgery in the offseason. Mitchell was healthy for the start of training camp and practiced for about two weeks before the hamstring injury popped up. If he doesn't make it back for the opener, Jeff Wilson would be the favorite to fill in as San Francisco's top running back.

  • 49ers' Elijah Mitchell: Not playing preseason Week 2

    Mitchell (hamstring) isn't expected to play in the 49ers' second preseason game Saturday, Aug. 20 at Minnesota, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Coach Kyle Shanahan relayed the news after Friday's exhibition win against the Packers, noting the 49ers then will make a decision regarding Mitchell for preseason Week 3 (Thursday, Aug. 25 in Houston). Shanahan's statement seems to contradict a report from Adam Schefter of ESPN earlier Friday that Mitchell likely would miss the entire preseason. With a new starting quarterback in Trey Lance in San Francisco, the team seems likely to have a dress rehearsal of sorts with most of the first-team offense working together, so perhaps Mitchell, Deebo Samuel and company will see game action before Week 1.

  • 49ers' Elijah Mitchell: Tending to hamstring injury

    Mitchell is dealing with a hamstring issue that may keep him sidelined for the entire preseason, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Prior to kickoff of Friday's exhibition against the Packers, Mitchell wasn't seen in uniform along with a number of the 49ers' top skill-position talent, per Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com. But Mitchell's absence is related to an injury. While he may not make an appearance in a game in August, he is slated to be available when the team opens the regular season Sunday, Sept. 11 in Chicago.

  • 49ers' Elijah Mitchell: Healthy to open training camp

    Mitchell (knee) worked with the first-team offense at San Francisco's first practice of training camp, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Mitchell underwent a cleanup procedure in his knee after his rookie season, but it's safe to say he's back to full health, as the 49ers would have no reason to rush his return at this stage of the offseason. Per Dieter Kurtenbach of The Mercury News, Jeff Wilson, Trey Sermon and rookie Tyrion Davis-Price all looked impressive as well, but a healthy Mitchell should open the season as the clear top option in San Francisco's deep backfield.

  • 49ers' Elijah Mitchell: Opts for offseason knee procedure

    Mitchell said Monday that he underwent a cleanup procedure on his knee following his rookie season, but he expects to be 100 percent in advance of training camp, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports. Mitchell was a fixture on the 49ers' injury reports throughout the 2021 campaign, with a combination of the knee, shoulder and rib injuries as well as a concussion keeping him sidelined for six of San Francisco's 20 contests, including the postseason. The knee issue first popped up in early December, but Mitchell continued to fill a lead role out of the 49ers backfield when he was available for the final five games, as he amassed 373 rushing yards, 68 receiving yards and two scores over those contests. His efficiency took a big hit, however, as he averaged 4.6 yards per carry through his first nine contests, compared to only 3.8 yards per carry in his final five appearances. Mitchell is hopeful that the knee procedure along with adding some extra bulk -- he plans to play at around 215 pounds in 2022 after hovering around 212 as a rookie -- will allow him to recapture the success he enjoyed during the early portion of 2021.

  • 49ers' Elijah Mitchell: Ready for Sunday

    Mitchell (knee) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's NFC Championship Game at the Rams, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Mitchell endured a cap on his on-field reps this week, missing Wednesday's session before returning as a limited participant Thursday due to a lingering knee issue. Following a full practice Friday, it won't stop him from making a fifth straight appearance this weekend. In the previous four, Mitchell combined for 86 carries and six catches, while do-it-all Deebo Samuel accrued 48 touches and the rest of the backfield tallied four. Expect Mitchell again to receive a majority share of the running back reps Sunday.

  • 49ers' Elijah Mitchell: Limited Thursday

    Mitchell (knee) will be a limited practice participant Thursday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports. After sitting out Wednesday's session, Mitchell is ramping up his activity level as he continues to deal with a knee injury stemming from a Week 13 road matchup with the Seahawks. Still, he's rid himself of a designation by the release of the 49ers' final practice report for three straight weeks, which he'll aim to do Friday. Assuming he's good to go for Sunday's NFC Championship Game at the Rams, Mitchell should approach his 23 touches per game from the past four outings.

  • 49ers' Elijah Mitchell: Not practicing Wednesday

    Mitchell (knee) won't participate in Wednesday's practice, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Once again, the 49ers are placing practice limitations on Mitchell due to the knee injury that has bothered him since early December. He hasn't had any problem playing through the issue, earning most of the snaps given to 49ers running backs over the last four contests. During that stretch, Mitchell has averaged 23 touches for 92.8 yards from scrimmage per game while scoring two touchdowns. He'll look to mix into drills Thursday and/or Friday and enter the weekend without a designation for Sunday's NFC Championship Game at the Rams.

  • 49ers' Elijah Mitchell: Gains 71 yards on 20 touches

    Mitchell rushed 17 times for 53 yards and caught three of four targets for 18 more yards in Saturday's 13-10 playoff win over the Packers. The 49ers ran the ball early and often, but the Packers' defensive front was ready for that exact gameplan, leaving Mitchell with an inefficient rushing performance. The talented rookie finished second among both teams' position players with 20 total touches, which helped him put together a respectable 71 total yards of offense despite the low efficiency. Those looking to roll with Mitchell in the championship round won't find much of a soft matchup against either the Bucs or Rams, who both boast talented defensive lines. That said, Mitchell should safely clear 15 carries regardless of opponent next Sunday, a feat the back has accomplished in seven consecutive contests.

  • 49ers' Elijah Mitchell: Full practice Wednesday

    Mitchell (knee) practiced fully Wednesday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports. Mitchell has managed an uncapped session earlier than he did the previous three weeks as he puts his bout with knee irritation further in the rear-view mirror. During the recent three-game stretch, he averaged 24 touches for 100 yards from scrimmage per game while totaling two touchdowns. Mitchell will look to keep it going Saturday in the divisional round, taking on a Packers defense that has allowed 4.3 yards per carry (17th-most in the NFL) and 14 touchdowns (tied for 20th-most) to running backs in 17 regular-season contests.
