Elijah Mitchell of the San Francisco 49ers is anticipated to miss the preseason with a hamstring injury.

Running back Elijah Mitchell of the San Francisco 49ers will be sidelined Friday against the Green Bay Packers due to a hamstring issue.

The cornerback Chervarius Ward, who also has a strained hamstring, is experiencing the same thing.

Both of them had soft tissue wounds.

Due to a hamstring issue, Mitchell would miss the Minnesota Vikings game the following week.

Mitchell reverted to his position as San Francisco's starting running back for the first two weeks of camp.

While Jeff Wilson Jr., a seasoned back, is on the roster, he did not play versus Green Bay.

There were also receivers DeBo Samuel and Brandon Ayuk, left tackle Trent Williams, end Nick Bosa, linebacker Fred Warner, and tight end Brandon Ayuk.

With 963 yards last year, Mitchell set the franchise rookie rushing record.
