49ers-Bears Injury Updates: Elijah Mitchell ruled out

Sep 11, 2022 at 11:23 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers are playing the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field in both teams' 2022 regular-season opener. Tight end George Kittle and offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill were among the 49ers' seven inactive players. Kittle is dealing with a groin injury, while Brunskill is recovering from a hamstring injury.

Below are the 49ers-Bears in-game injury updates.

DT Javon Kinlaw (returned)

Javon Kinlaw went down in the first quarter. He was able to get up and walk off the field on his own with a slight limp. 49ers medical staff proceeded to look at Kinlaw's left lower ankle before getting both ankles wrapped. He returned in the second quarter following the drive that put San Francisco up 7-0.

RB Elijah Mitchell (out)

Elijah Mitchell exited the game in the first half due to a knee injury and has been ruled "out." Jeff Wilson took over as the primary running back.

LB Azeez Al-Shaair

Azeez Al-Shaair exited the game to be evaluated for a potential concussion. He returned to the sideline, which suggests the linebacker was cleared.

Kyle Shanahan praises his quarterback room every year. Last season, the San Francisco 49ers went through three starting quarterbacks and still made it to the NFC Championship Game. Trey Lance was the Week 1 starter but suffered a season-ending ankle injury during his second game. Eleven weeks later, Jimmy Garoppolo sustained a broken foot. That opened the door for rookie Brock Purdy to show his coaches and the NFL world that he belonged, despite being the last overall pick in the draft. Purdy guided the 49ers to eight consecutive wins before suffering a severe injury in that NFC title game matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. Two of the quarterbacks from last season—Lance and Purdy—remain. Both are just 23 years old. They are joined by Sam
