San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey reached a career milestone on Thursday Night Football, surpassing the 5,000-yard mark as a rusher against the New York Giants.

Coming into the game, McCaffrey entered with 4,994 rushing yards, accomplishing the 5,000-yard feat on his second carry of the game, which came at the 13:30 mark in the first quarter on Thursday.



The running back has been on a tear to begin the season, rushing for 152 and 116 yards, respectively, in the 49ers' first two games, which earned him the Fedex Ground Player of the Week award in each of the first two weeks off the season.

It took McCaffrey 78 career games to reach the 5,000-yard marker, and his 14th with the 49ers.

Seen as a strong rushing and receiving threat as a running back, McCaffrey also has 3,792 receiving yards over his career, meaning another milestone may potentially be on the way.

But, for now, congratulations to the star running back on breaking the 5,000-yard barrier, with more to come in a 49ers uniform.

The offseason is underway for the San Francisco 49ers, which means the team's decision makers will soon have to determine which free agents they would like to try to keep and which ones they'll have to let go. One of the more interesting cases is defensive end Chase Young, whom the 49ers added during the regular season from the Washington Commanders in exchange for a third-round draft pick. It may be hard for the 49ers to prevent Young from being more than a rent-a-player, but Young's friend and former Ohio State University teammate Nick Bosa made it clear Tuesday he'd like to see general manager John Lynch and the 49ers brass find a way to keep Young on the team. In this edition of the 49ers Notebook, we delve into a range of topics starting with Bosa's

Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw are arguably the best linebacker duo in the NFL, serving as the heart of the San Francisco 49ers defense while sharing a strong bond.

He will serve as the New Orleans Saints' offensive coordinator after his stint as the 49ers' offensive passing game specialist. Kubiak only spent one season with the 49ers. Of course, it's unsurprising to see the considerable interest in head coach Kyle Shanahan's coaching staff, given the success many of his proteges have found across the league. Upon his departure, Kubiak had nothing but praise for his time working under Shanahan. "Just being here a year, my experience is, Kyle really lets you into his brain in his game plan meetings," Kubiak
