49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (calf) was a full-go in practice all week and is not listed on the final injury report. He'll be ready for his usual workhorse role vs. the Packers on Saturday night.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (calf) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice. He'll play -- and be ready for a full workload -- vs. the Packers on Saturday night. McCaffrey sits clear atop the RB Rankings for the Divisional Round.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday that he expects RB Christian McCaffrey (calf) to be "full-go" in practice next week. That would obviously set CMC up for his usual workhorse role in the Divisional Round. We'll keep you updated on McCaffrey's status, but he seems safe to select for playoff fantasy rosters. He sits No. 1 overall in our NFL Playoff Fantasy Rankings.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (calf) will not play vs. the Rams this weekend, HC Kyle Shanahan confirmed Monday. Shanahan called McCaffrey's injury a "mild calf strain." It's unclear if CMC would be able to play if this game meant something to San Francisco, but he was never going to suit up with the NFC's No. 1 seed clinched. He'll get three total weeks to heal up before the 49ers' playoff opener. We'll see about the team's backfield plans this weekend. RBs Elijah Mitchell and Jordan Mason are on the active roster, with RB Ty Davis-Price on the practice squad.

Neither 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey nor HC Kyle Shanahan sounded concerned about the calf injury that knocked McCaffrey from Sunday's win over the Commanders. “I’m not sure what happened,” McCaffrey said. “It was pretty minor. I was having a hard time pushing off. And just for precautionary reasons, it’d be better to just rest it." Shanahan said, "We think he’ll be all right. He was moving around all right on the sideline. We’re hoping it’s not too bad, but we’ll know more tomorrow.” McCaffrey won't play in Sunday's meaningless regular-season finale and will then get a first-round playoff bye. It sounds like he'll be ready when the 49ers return for the Divisional Round. We'll keep you updated on McCaffrey's status.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey is officially questionable to return to Sunday's game vs. the Commanders due to a calf. He's remained on the sidelines trying to get loose. We'll look for more info on his status. RB Elijah Mitchell has replaced McCaffrey as San Francisco's lead back.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (knee) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Cardinals. Jordan Mason will again serve as San Francisco’s No. 2 RB – and Christian McCaffrey will continue to dominate backfield work.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Seahawks. Jordan Mason will serve as the No. 2 RB, but RB Christian McCaffrey will dominate work – at least as long as this game is still in the balance.

49ers QB Brock Purdy went off for 333 yards and 3 TDs in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay. He posted a perfect 158.3 QB rating while spreading scores to Brandon Aiyuk, George Kittle, and Christian McCaffrey. Purdy should make his way onto plenty of championship squads, as long as this offense stays healthy. His rest-of-season schedule only includes one negative matchup – Week 16 vs. Baltimore.

The 49ers scored just two TDs in Sunday's loss to the Bengals, and RB Christian McCaffrey accounted for both. He ran the first in from 2 yards out late in the first quarter. McCaffrey then caught a 4-yard TD pass in the middle of the fourth quarter. Overall, he totaled a 12-54 rushing line, plus 6-64 receiving on 7 targets. McCaffrey has averaged 12.7 carries in losses over the past three games after averaging 19.8 in five victories to open the season. RB Elijah Mitchell drew just 3 carries against Cincinnati after 1 against the Browns in Week 7. So it's not as though McCaffrey is ceding more work to teammate. If San Francisco can rebound after the Week 9 bye, McCaffrey's rushing workload would seem in line to rebound as well.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (oblique) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. If playing 100% of the snaps in Monday night's game vs. the Vikings wasn't telling, here's more confirmation that the oblique isn't a concern going forward.

Fantasy managers who trusted 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (oblique) in their lineups in Week 7 were rewarded with a pair of TDs vs. the Vikings. The veteran RB recorded 15 carries for 45 rushing yards to go along with 3 catches for 51 yards as a pass-catcher in the contest. Always remember: if CMC is healthy enough to play, you start him in your lineup. Next week, McCaffrey will take on the Bengals.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (oblique) is active for tonight's game vs. the Vikings. He got in just one limited practice this week and didn't take a hit, ESPN's Adam Schefter said on The Pat McAfee Show earlier today. There's elevated risk with CMC tonight, although there's been no report on his snaps being limited. RB Ty Davis-Price is a healthy scratch, leaving RBs Elijah Mitchell and Jordan Mason behind McCaffrey.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (oblique) is expected to play vs. the Vikings tonight. We'll look for any word on limitations for McCaffrey in that one and will get San Francisco's inactives around 7 pm ET.

ESPN's Adam Schefter tweets, "All signs point to 49ers’ RB Christian McCaffrey playing Monday night at Minnesota ... McCaffrey returned to practice in a limited way Saturday and said after that he feels “great.” Barring another update between now and the 1 pm ET kickoffs, we'd have McCaffrey starting in the vast majority of fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (oblique) "has a shot" to play vs. the Vikings on Monday night. CMC got in a limited practice on Saturday and is officially questionable. There have been no solid reports on his status. Hopefully we'll get one before the 1 pm ET games kick off.
