49ers RB Elijah Mitchell could play despite broken finger

49ers running back Elijah Mitchell had surgery to repair a fractured finger on Tuesday but head coach Kyle Shanahan said he could play in San Francisco’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars this week.

Mitchell had a career-high 27 carries for 91 yards Monday in the 49ers’ win over the Los Angeles Rams.

Shanahan said the medical view of Mitchell’s chance to play in Week 1 after a pin was inserted to promote healing the fracture as seemingly optimistic.

If Mitchell doesn’t practice this week, Jeff Wilson would take the majority of the snaps and be in line to start.

Mitchell, a sixth-round pick out of Louisiana, leads the 49ers with 560 rushing yards.

The status of JaMycal Hasty (ankle) is unclear for Week 11. The 49ers could also turn to backups Trenton Cannon and Trey Sermon.
