The 49ers re-signed RB Jeff Wilson. The 26-year-old had surgery last May to repair a torn meniscus in his knee and slogged his way to just 3.7 yards per carry after returning in November. He averaged 4.4 yards per carry over his first 3 NFL seasons. Wilson figures to compete for backup duties behind Elijah Mitchell this summer.

The 49ers have ruled RB Elijah Mitchell out for Thursday night's game at Tennessee with his knee injury. Jeff Wilson Jr. dominated backfield work in Sunday's win over Atlanta, with Deebo Samuel and Jimmy Garoppolo the only 2 other Niners to handle more than 1 carry.

49ers GM John Lynch said Tuesday morning that RB Elijah Mitchell will be a game-time decision for Thursday night's tilt with the Titans. Mitchell is out of concussion protocol, and his knee has "taken a positive turn," Lynch said. We'll see what Mitchell does in practice today and tomorrow and how he's listed on the final injury report. A healthy Mitchell has been a workhorse for the 'Niners this season.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (concussion, knee) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Falcons. HC Kyle Shanahan said Friday that it’s swelling in Mitchell’s knee, and not the concussion, that’s keeping him out. Jeff Wilson will get another game as San Francisco’s lead back. He’s been disappointing in 2 spot starts this season but at least has a plus matchup this weekend against Atlanta’s 27th-ranked RB defense.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (concussion, knee) is out for Sunday’s game vs. the Bengals. RB Jeff Wilson (knee) isn’t listed on the final injury report after practicing all week. He should operate as San Francisco’s lead back this weekend, with RB JaMycal Hasty in a change-of-pace, pass-catching role.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson (knee) graduated to a full practice on Thursday. Insider Matt Barrows confirms that Wilson is the "front runner" to operate as San Francisco's lead back vs. the Bengals this weekend. Wilson racked up 19 carries and 2 targets in a Week 11 spot start -- although he mustered just 58 scoreless yards.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson (knee) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. His knee flared up during last weekend's game, but it looks like he has a shot to play vs. the Bengals on Sunday. Wilson and RB JaMycal Hasty should be owned in all fantasy leagues with RB Elijah Mitchell (concussion, knee) iffy for Week 14.

ESPN's Adam Schefter that 49ers RB Elijah Mitchell had an MRI that showed knee "irritation," in the words of HC Kyle Shanahan. We'll see what that means through the practice week. At the least, it adds a complication to a player already in the concussion protocol. Make sure you have insurance behind Mitchell heading into the weekend.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell is in the concussion protocol, HC Kyle Shanahan said. Mitchell was checked for a head injury during Sunday's loss to Seattle but was cleared to re-enter. He then reported concussion symptoms on Monday morning. We'll track his progress through the protocol this week. RB Jeff Wilson had his knee "flare up" on Sunday, per Shanahan, so he's also iffy for Week 14. JaMycal Hasty is the only healthy RB on San Francisco's roster right now.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (finger, rib) is expected to play vs. the Vikings today, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Mitchell had finger surgery 12 days ago and remained in a non-contact jersey in practice this week. We're assuming the 'Niners trust his ability to carry the football if he ends up active, but it's possible that he isn't used in the passing game. Consider Mitchell a risk/reward RB2 for Week 12

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (finger) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Vikings. He was limited in practice all week and still in a non-contact jersey on Friday, according to The Athletic’s David Lombardi. We’ll look for an update on Mitchell on Sunday morning. Vikings-49ers doesn’t kick off until 4:25 pm ET. RB JaMycal Hasty (ankle) has been ruled out again.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (finger) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Jaguars. With RB JaMycal Hasty (ankle) also out, Jeff Wilson, Kyle Juszczyk and Trey Sermon will handle backfield duties. Wilson should see the majority of the work and is a solid RB2 play. WR Deebo Samuel could also see a handful of carries again.

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 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.
