49ers RB Elijah Mitchell had a finger fracture. He's going to get it fixed but unclear just yet what his status for this week will be against Jacksonville.
Wagoner went on to say in another tweet that Shanahan said doctors are "pretty optimistic" Mitchell will be OK. And there's a chance Mitchell will be able to practice Wednesday. Wagoner added the team just wants to see how he's doing after getting pin put in finger during procedure. The Niners play the Jags in Week 11, so if they assume they can win the game, maybe sitting Mitchell a week makes some sense. Wilson saw limited snaps behind Mitchell in Week 10 and would likely get a bulk of the work if Mitchell has to miss time. There could even be another Trey Sermon citing if Mitchell is out.
