Elijah Mitchell is out of the preseason San Francisco 49ers for an injury
Elijah Mitchell was unable to play against the Green Bay Packers because of a hamstring injury in Friday's preseason.
He could miss all three of the team's preseason games.
After Friday's 28-21 win against the Packers, Niners coach Kyle Shanahan said Mitchell is dealing with a hamstring injury.
He won't play in next week's game against the Minnesota Vikings.
But Mitchell and Ward are expected to be prepared for the regular-season opener on Sept. 11 against the Chicago Bears.
Now the 49ers will turn to a group.
This group includes Trey Sermon, rookie Tyrion Davis-Price and JaMycal Hasty.
