One of —if not the— best pass-catching running backs of his generation, White will hang up the cleats at 30 years old. In his steed, it clears the way for Stevenson to continue working on third downs, while dark horse veteran Ty Montgomery could find himself with a bigger workload than we would have imagined when he signed with the team.
The 24-year-old sustained the high-ankle sprain during Saturday's practice and now will miss all of the preseason and around a month of regular season action. This leaves the already barren Bears WR depth chart even thinner, offering QB Justin Fields a steep hill to climb during his sophomore year.
The article goes on to say, "the 225-pounder (Davis-Price) has managed to look like a violent runner even in non-padded practices, and the 49ers are eager to see whether that plays out in the...offseason." Jeff Wilson has shown flashes of production with the San Francisco offense in the past but has had a long history with injuries. If Davis-Price can't wrest the RB2 slot away before Week 1, I would expect the switch to come soon after.
