The two 49ers players who suffered head injuries on Sunday—running backs Elijah Mitchell and Trenton Cannon—won't practice. They remain in the concussion protocol. Shanahan revealed that Mitchell is also dealing with a knee injury.

"I think they're calling it a knee irritation right now," Shanahan said. "We didn't have the imaging back when I talked to you guys [on Monday] but it's some stuff that makes him day-to-day."

Unbelievable, our RBs can't stay on the field.
Mitchell shouldnt be a bellcow back. Gave him too many carries. This isnt a fluke he has slowly been breaking down.

He isn't a big guy - he's going to eventually break down.

Big, small--all RBs breakdown. It's one of the most punishing positions in football. But yeah, I agree that Mitchell ain't that big and ain't going to last long.

It's a shame they wasted a 3rd-round pick on a RB who sucked ass in camp such that the team had no faith in him to help alleviate some of the load from Mitchell from the jump.

An absolute shame and I wish I knew who made that pick and why. Just awful

Welp, at least they are getting creative with their terminology. When Wilson left after one carry, what did they call that? Temporary knee twinge?

Now, don't get Hasty here.

It's really too bad - if he tries to bulk up, he's going to lose his speed.

he also shows how he slows down after the 3rd QTR... we need a partner for this guy.. he wont be very effective if he runs the ball 25x per game..

Tbh we would be wise to draft another RB next year. He's never going to last and cannot be a premiere back.

Hopefully, Sermon will be a factor next year.
So what's the official reason he won't play? Concussion? Knee? Both?
5 injuries in just how many games? Kid is tough as nails but he's a 49er now so...
Part of the problem is Shanahan should have used Sermon more. When he did get to play he had better numbers than Wilson and Hasty. Shanahan just seems to put guys in a catagory and nothing changes his mind.
