49ers-Cardinals: Deebo Samuel, Elijah Mitchell expected to play

Nov 7, 2021 at 6:46 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers listed wide receiver Deebo Samuel (calf) and running back Elijah Mitchell (rib) as "questionable" for this afternoon's game against the Arizona Cardinals. Both are expected to play, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The insider adds that the 49ers are uncertain how much each will be able to play and are hoping for no setbacks today.

Schefter also notes that the 49ers expect tight end George Kittle to be on a pitch count and play roughly half the game. On Saturday, San Francisco activated Kittle from injured reserve. The tight end has been dealing with a calf injury.

This week, head coach Kyle Shanahan told NBC Sports Bay Area that the team would "ease [Kittle] in a little bit and see how the game goes, how he's moving, how he's feeling, communicating with him throughout it. If he's feeling good, it's definitely a lot more tempting to keep him out there."

The Cardinals could be without quarterback Kyler Murray (ankle) and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring).

"According to multiple reports, the team plans to see how the players look during pregame warmups but that there isn't much optimism that they will be able to play," reports Pro Football Talk.

Running back Elijah Mitchell's unexpectedly impressive 2021 performance reached a new high on Sunday when he broke the long-standing franchise record for single-season rushing yardage by a rookie. Mitchell rushed for 119 yards on 21 carries in a 23-7 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday, giving him 878 on the season, which is 67 yards better than the previous record set by Vic Washington in 1971. Sunday's performance was the fifth 100-yard game of the year for the sixth-round draft pick Mitchell, who entered the season as a bit of an underdog for playing time given the presence of veterans Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson, and JaMycal Hasty, along with third-round draft pick Trey Sermon.
