49ers-Jaguars Injury Report: Elijah Mitchell ‘doubtful’ for Sunday; No decision yet on Dre Greenlaw, Jaquiski Tartt

Nov 19, 2021 at 12:50 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 11 contest against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday at TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, Florida.

The 49ers are being cautious with rookie running back Elijah Mitchell, who sustained a finger fracture during Monday night's win over the Los Angeles Rams. He had surgery on Tuesday to repair the damage.

Today, general manager John Lynch said Mitchell's availability against the Jaguars would be a game-time decision.

"I think that's something that you take all the way [to game time]," Lynch said on KNBR. "He's earned that right, even as a rookie, to take it all the way down to game time. We've got to get on a long flight. Sometimes things react, things can swell. I think our medical team is going to do a real nice job of being aware of all that, and really, [the] effort to have him ready on Sunday."

For now, the rookie running back is listed as "doubtful" for Sunday.

If Mitchell cannot play, the 49ers will likely give Jeff Wilson Jr. the majority of the carries, with rookie Trey Sermon probably serving as the backup.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan said the team has not made a decision on whether or not linebacker Dre Greenlaw or safety Jaquiski Tartt will be activated off injured reserve before Sunday.

"We have until 1 tomorrow to decide fully if we need it," Shanahan added.

The Jaguars' leading rusher, James Robinson, is listed as "questionable."

Below are the official injury reports for the 49ers and Jaguars, which were provided by the 49ers Communications staff. Also included are Friday's practice participation reports.

The San Francisco 49ers underwent an impressive turnaround this season. Many left them for dead, especially following an embarrassing November 7, 2021 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, who were missing several starters. Some joked that the Cardinals' practice squad had knocked off the Niners, and just like that, San Francisco was 3-5. After that, the 49ers went 7-2, clinching a playoff berth in the final regular-season game against the Los Angeles Rams. The Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers probably regret the Rams not being able to eliminate the 49ers. Both were knocked out of the postseason by Kyle Shanahan's squad. Linebacker Dre Greenlaw was part of that last matchup against the Rams. Before that, he had to watch much of the season from the outside, unable to

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Wild Card playoff contest against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after practice and named just four players on his game-status report—three defenders and punter Mitch Wishnowsky. Wishnowsky spent the week in the concussion protocol and linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair has been inactive the last two games due to a knee injury. The others are linebacker Marcell Harris and rookie safety Talanoa Hufanga. Tackle Trent Williams, who is dealing with an elbow injury, was not named and looks set to play on Sunday. There weren't any setbacks for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (thumb) either. Below are the official injury reports for the 49ers

What a night it was for the San Francisco 49ers and their fans. The Bay Area team entered the playoffs as the sixth seed in the NFC. They already knocked off the NFC East champion Dallas Cowboys, and on Saturday, eliminated the top-seeded Green Bay Packers in an upset at Lambeau Field. The 49ers special teams unit, often criticized as the team's weakest link, shined. There was a field goal block by safety Jimmie Ward before halftime. Defensive lineman Jordan Willis blocked a punt in the second half, and safety Talanoa Hufanga scooped up the football and returned it for a game-tying touchdown. Then, of course, you have kicker Robbie Gould's game-winning field goal in the closing seconds to punch the 49ers' ticket to the NFC Championship Game. "I
