Shark Bites

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 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.

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.

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.

Niners HC Kyle Shanahan confirmed Monday that RB Elijah Mitchell did suffer an MCL sprain Sunday against the Saints. He's expected to miss 6-8 weeks. When Mitchell suffered the same injury to his other knee back in Week 1, he remained out until Week 10. Expect this injury to knock Mitchell out for at least the rest of the regular season. We'll see about the playoffs (for him and the 49ers).

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell suffered a "possible" MCL sprain in Sunday's win over the Saints, HC Kyle Shanahan said afterward. Mitchell missed 8 weeks with a sprained MCL earlier this season, although Shanahan said this one isn't believed to be as serious. We should learn more about Mitchell's status on Monday.
