JaMycal Hasty of the 49ers is out indefinitely, and Elijah Mitchell and Trey Sermon’s status is unknown.
Three of the 49ers’ four running backs were injured in Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles, with backup tailback JaMycal Hasty anticipated to miss a significant amount of time due to a high ankle sprain.
Hasty has been ruled out for the foreseeable future due to an ankle injury, according to 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan. Hasty was hurt late in the 49ers’ 17-11 victory over the Eagles and did not return.
More tests are needed. Hasty could be placed on injured reserve after the sprain was revealed on Monday. Sprains normally take at least three weeks to heal.
Meanwhile, rookie ball carriers Elijah Mitchell (right shoulder) and Trey Sermon (concussion) have a shot to play on Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers. Sermon must clear the NFL’s concussion protocol before he can return. Mitchell is classified day-to-day.
Shanahan stated, “JaMycal is the only one who is definitely out.” “Elijah and Trey have a chance, so we’ll see what happens this week.”
Mitchell, Hasty, and Sermon all suffered injuries against the Eagles in a five-minute stretch. The 49ers were obliged to utilize Trenton Cannon, who had been acquired off waivers earlier in the week, at one point during the game.
Cannon is the 49ers’ lone healthy running back on the active roster, while the team also has Kerryon Johnson, a former Detroit Lions tailback, on the practice squad.
Despite Shanahan’s hope that Mitchell or Sermon will be ready for Week 3, the club is working out with veterans T.J. Yeldon, Lamar Miller, and Duke Johnson this week.
