The Facts: While reporters did not see Mitchell at Friday’s practice, HC Kyle Shanahan said after that Mitchell was a limited participant. He’s listed as questionable with his groin injury after he also didn’t practice on Wednesday or Thursday.
Diehards Line: Meanwhile, Christian McCaffrey told reporters on Thursday there was “zero” chance he’d miss the NFC Championship Game. San Francisco’s final injury report of the week confirmed that. After McCaffrey was on the field for Friday’s session, the running back has no designation for Sunday’s matchup with the Eagles and is expected to play, Shanahan said in his press conference. McCaffrey has been dealing with a calf injury. He didn’t practice on Wednesday or Thursday. Cornerback Ambry Thomas (ankle) is also questionable. He hasn’t played since Week 17.
