Shark Bites

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (knee) has been designated to return from IR. He's been out since spraining an MCL in Week 12. We'll see if he's ready to play vs. the Cardinals this weekend. A healthy Mitchell figures to slide back in as San Francisco's #2 RB behind Christian McCaffrey.

The 49ers got RB Elijah Mitchell back at practice Monday after a nearly three-week absence for an adductor injury. According to Jack Hammer (yes, really) of the Santa Rosa Press-Democrat, Mitchell "looked explosive." Expect Mitchell to remain No. 2 on the RB depth chart, barring any setbacks. See where he sits in our RB rankings.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell is dealing with an adductor strain that’ll sideline him for about one week, per HC Kyle Shanahan. Mitchell’s extensive injury history remains a concern in Year 3. He should still fill a part-time role behind Christian McCaffrey when healthy, though. Current projections have Mitchell for about 8 touches per game.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell (groin) is inactive for today's NFC Championship game vs. the Eagles. RB Tevin Coleman was elevated from the practice squad on Saturday and is active for this one. He joins Christian McCaffrey and Jordan Mason in San Francisco's backfield. RB Ty Davis-Price is a healthy scratch. Check out the updated projections for the 49ers backfield.

The 49ers have activated RB Elijah Mitchell from IR. He has been out since suffering an MCL sprain in Week 12, Mitchell's 2nd knee sprain of the season. He carried 18 times in his previous return from IR, that one following a 9-week layoff. We'd still rather not bet on Mitchell in fantasy football lineups in his 1st game back. He's an interesting option for playoff fantasy football leagues, though. We'll have rankings for that format after the Week 18 games.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Thursday that he expects RB Elijah Mitchell (knee) to play vs. the Cardinals this weekend. He's been out since spraining an MCL in Week 12 but returned to practice this week. Mitchell should step back in as San Francisco's #2 RB this postseason, but it's possible he's limited in his first game back.
