49ers injury report: Elijah Mitchell questionable vs. Eagles

The 49ers may have to play the NFC championship without the second hand in their one-two punch at running back. RB Elijah Mitchell is officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s game with a groin injury he suffered in the divisional playoffs vs. Dallas.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan on Monday said Mitchell would be day-to-day and expressed some optimism that he’d be available along with other players dealing with injuries. However, the second-year RB didn’t participate in practice all week and earned a questionable designation on the injury report.

While the practice participation report indicated Mitchell was a non-participant in Friday’s session, Shanahan on Friday said Mitchell did get a little work in.

“He was out there, I think pre-practice and individual. I think so,” Shanahan said.

Here’s the full injury report for Sunday:
