The San Francisco 49ers' streak of second-half shutouts continues. Although, it looked like that was in jeopardy a couple of times in the second half. Another streak ended after Sunday's 13-0 win over the New Orleans Saints. Head coach Kyle Shanahan couldn't say, "No injuries to report," something he had done in the previous three games. The 49ers lost two key players in the game. Running back Elijah Mitchell and guard Spencer Burford exited with injuries. Mitchell was ruled out with a knee injury, while Burford was sidelined due to an ankle injury. After the game, head coach Kyle Shanahan said Mitchell may have suffered another MCL sprain of his knee, but it's not believed to be as severe as the one he sustained in Week 1. However, he will likely miss some time.



Elijah Mitchell to miss 6-8 weeks with MCL sprain, other 49ers injury updates from Kyle Shanahan

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan jumped on a conference call with reporters on Monday, a day after the team's 13-0 win over the New Orleans Saints. He provided several injury updates from the game. Running back Elijah Mitchell suffered an MCL sprain in his left knee. The team initially thought it wasn't as severe as the MCL sprain he suffered in his right knee during Week 1, forcing him to miss seven games. The 49ers believed he might miss two or three weeks. That isn't the case, though. "It wasn't the news we were looking for," Shanahan said. "He'll be out longer than that. Most likely six to eight weeks." Mitchell will likely land back on the injured reserve list. Shanahan said the team hopes he can return sometime during the playoffs.



49ers' Kyle Shanahan provides updates on Trey Lance, Javon Kinlaw

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have stated that Trey Lance's ankle injury in September was a season-ender since the injury occurred. Lynch reaffirmed that this morning on KNBR while adding that the team has been impressed with the quarterback's recovery. Unfortunately, it's just a bit much to expect Lance to return to the field this season. "He'll be fine long-term, but that's a big ask to get back this year," Lynch said. That didn't stop a reporter from asking Shanahan about the possibility ahead of today's practice. Could Lance return to serve as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup if the 49ers embarked on a deep playoff
