Analysis: According to David Lombardi of The Athletic, head coach Kyle Shanahan said that Mitchell is expected to be removed from the concussion protocol later Friday, but the swelling the running back continues to deal with in his knee is considered serious enough to keep him out for a second straight game. Per Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com, Shanahan admitted that he’s hopeful, though “not optimistic” that Mitchell will be ready to go for Week 16, when the 49ers will be facing a quick turnaround for a Thursday night game in Tennessee. Jeff Wilson is expected to carry the load at running back for San Francisco for at least one more game, with receiver Deebo Samuel likely mixing in for reps out of the backfield as well.
(LC) Amir was close to picking up two strikes as his DL Kenny Clark (GB) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, what with the 49’ers game Sunday was 99% sure to not come of that list in time to play Sunday even if he was just a close contat and not positive himself which proved to be the case but as that was not 100% confirmed to the Sunday (gameday) I technically was able to not have to issue the second strike strike but had Amir paid attention to setting a valid line-up this week (in the consoilation bracket playoffs - competing for a higher draft spot next season), he would of seen this as well as his RB ruled out nearly 3 days before game day - which he did get his fist ever strike for.
Let this be a reminder to all - any game you play with an opponent (not if ya on a bye) does carry the same strike rules as you are competiting for finishing positions which utimately decides your draft spot for next season! In this case Amir has thrown away a chance for #1 pick in next years draft when he could of won this match up and gone forwards to earning a higher draft pick position than he will now get.
