Three 49ers, including Christian McCaffrey, day-to-day ahead of Eagles game, per Shanahan

Jan 23, 2023 at 11:54 AM--

On Monday, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan jumped on a conference call with reporters and provided several injury updates following Sunday's 19-12 Divisional Round playoff win over the Dallas Cowboys. The coach mentioned three players. Two were already known, based on post-game information. However, the third is a new development.

First, the known injuries. Charles Omenihu suffered an oblique strain that briefly forced the defensive end to exit the game. Shanahan says Omenihu is day-to-day leading to Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Running back Christian McCaffrey revealed that he fought through some bothersome calf discomfort against the Cowboys.

"I was fighting but made it through; made it through great," McCaffrey told reporters.

Shanahan said McCaffrey is day-to-day with a calf contusion.

The newcomer to the injury list is Elijah Mitchell. Shanahan said the second-year running back suffered a groin injury. He is also day-to-day. The coach was asked if there is any level of concern regarding McCaffrey and Mitchell's availability this weekend.

"No," Shanahan responded. "We're expecting to get them all back for Sunday, but we'll see how it goes through the week for practice and everything. Hopefully, it will go well, and that will get them ready for Sunday."

The 49ers and Eagles kick off from Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday at noon Pacific.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan has a reputation for being an offensive genius when it comes to how to attack defenses and overall game planning. One player was abruptly exposed to that genius this season. Christian McCaffrey joined the 49ers via a mid-season trade in October and went through a crash course to learn a new playbook and contribute to his new team. The running back admits that he's never met anyone like Shanahan. "I've had some great coaches, and when I came to San Fran, I felt like a full rookie again," McCaffrey told Mike Florio and Chris Simms Wednesday on Pro Football Talk Live. "The things that I learned in the meetings, that I'm still learning in the meetings, and watching him watch tape is one of the coolest experiences

Why 49ers' Christian McCaffrey is a 'proponent' for reimagined Pro Bowl Games

Fan reviews of the new Pro Bowl format, now called the Pro Bowl Games, have been mixed. ABC, ESPN, and the Disney affiliates are likely awaiting final rating numbers before determining if it was a success or otherwise. One San Francisco 49ers player was a fan of the new format, which replaced an actual football game played in past years with skill competitions and capped off the Las Vegas event at Allegiant Stadium with flag football games that featured players without the helmets or pads. The reimagining of the Pro Bowl comes after interest in past games dwindled and to reduce the risk of injuries. That last benefit drew praise from 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey, especially given that his team had just played 19 games, not counting the
