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.

Niners RB Christian McCaffrey put in a limited practice Saturday, his first action this week coming off the oblique injury. He's questionable for Monday night's game aginst the Vikings. We'll watch for any indications on whether he'll play before the Sunday games begin, but you might have to guess on McCaffrey's status until Monday. Make sure you have an insurance option available if you plan to wait on the 49er.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey (oblique) missed practice again on Friday. He was at least doing some work off on a side field, according to The Athletic's David Lombardi. We'll see if McCaffrey practices tomorrow and how he's listed on the final injury report for Monday night's game vs. the Vikings.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey won't practice on Thursday, HC Kyle Shanahan said. Shanahan called McCaffrey "day-to-day" with an oblique injury, but not a rib injury. That seemingly helps his chances of playing vs. the Vikings on Monday night. We'll get another update on McCaffrey tomorrow.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey's oblique/rib injury is not considered long-term, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Schefter adds that McCaffrey has a "chance" to play vs. the Vikings on Monday night. "The work week will help determine" his availability, Schefter says. We'll keep you updated on McCaffrey's status throughout the week. The Monday kickoff could make it a tricky situation for fantasy owners if McCaffrey ends up as a game-time decision.

The Athletic's Matt Barrows tweets that 49ers HC Kyle Shanahan "praised Jordan Mason's play on Sunday. But it sounded that Elijah Mitchell, not Mason, would be in the lead role should Christian McCaffrey miss Monday's game." It's certainly more tea-leaf-reading by Barrows than actual reporting -- but noteworthy nonetheless. Both Mitchell and Mason should be owned in most fantasy leagues as we wait to learn more about McCaffrey.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Monday afternoon that RB Christian McCaffrey is still undergoing tests on the injury he suffered in the Week 6 loss to the Browns. Shanahan said it's still unclear whether McCaffrey has an injury to his oblique, ribs, or both -- and that figuring that out will help determine whether he's able to play against the Vikings next Monday night. We'll keep you updated on McCaffrey's status.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey is questionable to return to Sunday's game vs. the Browns with an oblique injury. We'll update his status when we know more. McCaffrey's absence leaves San Francisco's backfield to Elijah Mitchell and Jordan Mason.

Update: McCaffrey has returned to the game.

Update: McCaffrey carried once and then left the game, jogging back to the locker room.

Update: McCaffrey has been ruled out.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Browns. He figures to slide back in as the No. 2 RB but would be a desperation fantasy start.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (knee) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Browns. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. We’ll see if Mitchell is ready to return as San Francisco’s No. 2 RB, but he shouldn’t be in your Week 6 fantasy plans.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey had a bit of a down game (by his absurdly high standards) with 78 total yards and a rushing TD on 22 touches vs. the Cowboys in Week 5. However, this was mostly due to the fact that he was pulled from the game by the fourth quarter once San Francisco had the victory in hand. The early shellacking that HC Kyle Shanahan and company were able to put on the Cowboys made it so CMC’s efforts weren’t needed. We’ll again have McCaffrey ranked highly in Week 6 vs. the Browns.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (knee) is out for Sunday night's game vs. the Cowboys. That'll leave Jordan Mason as San Francisco's No. 2 RB -- and very likely mean another massive workload for RB Christian McCaffrey.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. RB Christian McCaffrey got back up to an 85% snap rate and 27 touches with Mitchell out last week. CMC is THE RB1 regardless of Mitchell's availability for Sunday night's game vs. the Cowboys, but he gets a slight boost if Mitchell is out again.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Cardinals. RBs Jordan Mason and Ty Davis-Price are active to spell workhorse RB Christian McCaffrey.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (knee) is not expected to play vs. the Cardinals today, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. Mitchell injured his knee in Thursday's practice and did not practice on Friday. His absence could mean an extra touch or two for RB Christian McCaffrey. Jordan Mason and Ty Davis-Price figure to be active behind CMC.

49ers RB Christian McCaffrey's four-yard TD run in the second quarter of Thursday night's win over the Giants marked his 12th straight game with at least one TD. That ties WR Jerry Rice for the longest streak in franchise history. McCaffrey finished this one with 18 carries for 85 yards and the score, plus five catches on five targets for 34 yards. He gave way to RB Elijah Mitchell a bit more in this one -- but fantasy owners have nothing to complain about. McCaffrey will continue to be an elite fantasy asset as long as he stays healthy. He gets another plus matchup in Week 4 vs. the Cardinals before tougher draws against the Cowboys and Browns.
