The San Francisco 49ers have had a rough start to the 2020 season, and it appears that the team’s running back corps is taking a hit as well. Christian McCaffrey and Elijah Mitchell are both listed as day-to-day with injuries.
McCaffrey is dealing with a calf contusion that he suffered in the team’s Week 2 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. The injury kept him out of the team’s Week 3 game against the New York Giants, and he is currently listed as day-to-day.
McCaffrey is one of the best running backs in the league and has been a key contributor to the 49ers’ success in recent years. He is a dynamic playmaker who can make plays both as a runner and receiver. The 49ers will need him to be healthy and productive if they want to make a deep playoff run.
Meanwhile, Mitchell is dealing with a groin injury that he suffered in practice. He is also listed as day-to-day and his status for Week 4 is uncertain.
Mitchell has been a pleasant surprise for the 49ers this season. He has been a solid contributor in the running game and has shown flashes of potential as a receiver. He has also been effective in pass protection, which is an important skill for a running back in the 49ers’ offense.
The 49ers need both McCaffrey and Mitchell to be healthy and productive if they want to make a deep playoff run. The team is hoping that both players will be able to return to the field soon and contribute to the team’s success. Until then, the team will need to rely on other players to step up and fill the void.
