#49ers RB Eli Mitchell, who was quickly ruled out yesterday with a knee injury, is expected to miss some time, source said. He has an MRI this morning and that will determine the full extent. But Mitchell looking at a few weeks (or more) on the sidelines.
Mitchell suffered the injury in the sloppy conditions at Soldier Field on Sunday and is expected to miss multiple games. Jeff Wilson Jr. benefited from Mitchell’s absence, seeing 11 touches in the loss.

In 2021, Mitchell notched 963 rushing yards on 207 attempts and five touchdowns in 11 games. He also hauled in 19 receptions for 137 receiving yards and a touchdown on the season. Keep an eye out for a more detailed timetable on Mitchell in the coming weeks.
