49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (finger) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game vs. the Jaguars. So much for that early-week optimism after Mitchell’s Tuesday finger surgery. RB JaMycal Hasty (ankle) is out for Week 11, leaving San Francisco with RBs Jeff Wilson and Trey Sermon. Sermon might actually get on the field for the first time since Week 5, but Wilson should operate as the clear lead back. He’s a RB2 with upside.

49ers GM John Lynch called RB Elijah Mitchell (finger) a game-time decision for Sunday's tilt vs. the Jaguars. "He had type of break they thought he could function. But surgery might have been different than we anticipated," Lynch said. "Pain tolerance is not an issue, but he has to be able to function." We'll see if Mitchell practices later today and how he's listed on the final injury report. 49ers-Jaguars kicks off at 1 pm ET on Sunday, so we'll at least know Mitchell's status around 11:30 am ET.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (finger) remained sidelined on Thursday. HC Kyle Shanahan has been optimistic about Mitchell's chances of playing this weekend, but we'd consider him no better than 50/50 after Tuesday surgery. We'll get another update tomorrow.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan confirmed on Wednesday that RB Trey Sermon remains behind Elijah Mitchell and Jeff Wilson on the depth chart. “Trey had an opportunity (earlier this season) when guys got hurt and I thought he got better in each game with that. But he didn’t do enough for us to put him ahead of Elijah or Jeff," Shanahan said. Sermon could get some touches this weekend if Mitchell's finger injury keeps him out, but Wilson would be the 49ers RB to use in fantasy lineups.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (finger) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Kyle Shanahan still expects him to play vs. Jacksonville this weekend, despite undergoing surgery on Tuesday. But Mitchell owners should still be making backup plans for Week 11. RB JaMycal Hasty (ankle) also missed Wednesday's practice.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell fractured a finger in Monday night's win over the Rams, HC Kyle Shanahan said. Mitchell will undergo surgery, but the team hopes he can practice on Wednesday and isn't ruling him out for Sunday's game vs. the Jaguars. We'll keep an eye on Mitchell's status, as well as JaMycal Hasty, who missed Week 10 with an ankle injury. RB Jeff Wilson, who carried 10 times in his 2021 debut on Monday night, could be in line for lead duties this weekend.

49ers RB JaMycal Hasty (ankle) is out for Monday night's game vs. the Rams. Hasty leads 49ers RBs with 18 targets this season, so his absence opens up some work in the passing game. It's a small boost to RB Elijah Mitchell's Week 10 outlook. RBs Jeff Wilson and Trey Sermon also figure to be active for San Francisco on Monday night but aren't fantasy options.

49ers RB JaMycal Hasty (ankle) did not practice on Thursday. HC Kyle Shanahan confirmed that Hasty is in danger of missing Monday night's vs. the Rams. His absence could get RBs Jeff Wilson and/or Trey Sermon on the field -- but it'd also likely mean extra passing-down work for RB Elijah Mitchell.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (ribs) is active for today’s game against the Cardinals. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and was listed as questionable. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported this morning that the ‘Niners are “uncertain how long” Mitchell will be able to play through the rib issue. Consider him a risk/reward RB2. RB Jeff Wilson (knee) is also active and will make his 2021 debut in this one. RB Trey Sermon is a healthy scratch.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that 49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (ribs) and WR Deebo Samuel (calf) are expected to play vs. the Cardinals today. "But team also uncertain how long each player will be able to go, and is hoping there are no setbacks," Schefter adds. Both guys obviously come with elevated risk in Week 9 fantasy lineups. RB Jeff Wilson is also expected to make his 2021 debut today, adding some more downside to Mitchell.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (ribs) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Cardinals. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. We’ll look for an update on Mitchell’s status on Sunday morning. 49ers-Cardinals doesn’t kick off until 4:25 pm ET. HC Kyle Shanahan said Friday that RB Jeff Wilson (knee) has a chance to make his 2021 debut this weekend.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (ribs) did not practice on Wednesday. A report earlier this week had Mitchell expected to be limited, so it's slightly concerning. Check back tomorrow for another update on his status.

ESPN's Nick Wagoner reports that 49ers RB Elijah Mitchell is "dealing with a rib issue" and will be limited in Wednesday's practice. We'll see about his progress through the week. JaMycal Hasty operated as San Francisco's #2 RB for the 2nd straight game against the Bears. Trey Sermon has been active each of the past 2 weeks but played no offensive snaps.

49ers RB JaMycal Hasty (ankle) will return for Sunday night's game vs. the Colts. He's been out since suffering a high-ankle sprain back in Week 2. Hasty operated as San Francisco's #2 RB -- behind Elijah Mitchell but ahead of Trey Sermon -- before going down. We'll see where he slots in the pecking order now, but Mitchell is the only viable Week 7 fantasy play in this backfield.
