49ers-Seahawks Injury Report: Josh Norman among several defenders who don’t practice; Elijah Mitchell limited

Sep 29, 2021 at 3:29 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 4 contest against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Running back Elijah Mitchell is making progress. He practiced today. However, he was limited and practiced in a blue no-contact jersey. Mitchell missed this past weekend's game against the Green Bay Packers after suffering a shoulder injury in Week 2.

Cornerback Josh Norman suffered a lung contusion against the Packers and was reportedly spitting up blood. Today, head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked if he still feels there is a chance that Norman might play this weekend.

"I have no idea with that," Shanahan responded. "He's got to pass some tests throughout the week. I know he wants to, he seems a lot better today, but he's got to pass a number of tests to be able to."

Cornerback K'Waun Williams is expected to be out for several weeks due to a calf injury. He did not practice. Defensive lineman Arik Armstead, who missed two practices last week, was limited in the other, but played on Sunday, was full-go today.

Below are Wednesday's practice participation reports for both the 49ers and Seahawks, which were provided by the 49ers Communications staff.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan looking to ramp up practice workload for healthier Elijah Mitchell

Elijah Mitchell's 963 rushing yards last season set a San Francisco 49ers franchise record for the most by a rookie. But, how he accomplished the feat is even more impressive. Mitchell was never completely healthy for most of the season, dealing with shoulder, rib, finger, and knee injuries. In April, Mitchell underwent a clean-up procedure on his knee. Head coach Kyle Shanahan isn't about to throw a full workload on the second-year running back. He knows how important Mitchell is to the success of the upcoming season. "Elijah's just getting back healthy," Shanahan told reporters before Monday's practice. "We didn't get him in OTAs. He did a lot of good things last year, but he was also banged up throughout the year. So Elijah is just trying to get back to [100

After a rookie season full of bumps and bruises and a procedure on his knee in the spring, 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell seems to be in a good place as training camp proceeds. Mitchell set a franchise rushing record for a rookie player in 2021 (963 yards), even though injuries limited him to 11 games. In April, Mitchell had a clean-up procedure on his knee, but he's been participating in drills at training camp and has been moving in the right direction as he gets back to full health. "He has looked good," 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said Saturday,

How 49ers' Trey Lance reminds Ray-Ray McCloud of Josh Allen

By David Bonilla

Wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud entered the NFL in 2018 as a sixth-round pick with the Buffalo Bills. That was the same year the team made quarterback Josh Allen the No. 7 overall pick. McCloud spent two seasons with the Bills before bouncing between the Carolina Panthers, Bills, and Pittsburgh Steelers. The San Francisco 49ers signed McCloud this offseason, hoping to make the wideout their primary return man. He'll have to contribute on offense as well since head coach Kyle Shanahan values versatility. That means catching passes from second-year quarterback Trey Lance. McCloud spoke with reporters after Tuesday's practice as the 49ers prepare for their preseason opener against the Green Bay Packers. He was asked about his new quarterback and how the 22-year-old

Following the 49ers' practice session on Thursday, quarterback Trey Lance spoke publicly for the first time since June while defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans chatted with reporters about what he's seen so far from his side of the ball -- and from the quarterback his defense has been facing. Lance spoke on a number of topics, including what he thought of his first two days of training camp as the team's starter. Ryans offered his views of Lance, as well as what he's seen from some of the key players in the secondary and on the defensive line. Plus, there was an interesting Twitter quote Thursday from former 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman, who expects to see big things from his former defensive teammates this season. Here's a run-down of all of
