Elijah Mitchell OUT Week 15; Jordan Mason next up
7 months ago

Mitchell has been ruled out for his second game in a row and will miss this week’s matchup with the Cardinals.

Mitchell has had a minimal role in the team’s offense this season and is now out with a knee injury. As a result, Christian McCaffery will be the primary running back for the 49ers with Jordan Mason as his backup.

 

Although Mason has mainly played on special teams this season, he will now step up in Mitchell’s absence. He had some early success last week when he scored a touchdown after McCaffery’s 72-yard run down inside the 5.
