Wed Sep 20, 2023 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports San Francisco 49ers RB Christian McCaffrey played all 57 snaps Sunday. He played 58 of 68 snaps in the season opener. HC Kyle Shanahan said this week that he needs to do a better job with the running back rotation. (Backup running back Elijah Mitchell had 10 snaps in Week 1 and none in Week 2.) McCaffrey, though, isn’t worried about being overworked. “I think it’s all dependent on how the game’s going,” McCaffrey said. “We had a lot of breaks last game. Sometimes, that’s just how it goes. There’s going to be games, too, where Mitchell gets four or five carries in a row on multiple drives because he’s playing well, and he’s feeling it, and I’ll be out. It’s really such a situational thing. I don’t think it’s ever a plan for us to get all the carries or not. It’s just sometimes that’s just how the games go.”

So it is not really trying to put a limit on what he can do, it’s just trying to get a feel and once we get into the game and then go from there.”

Shanahan said he has no deadline date where he would feel uncomfortable playing Bosa, but the 49ers hope to see him practice next week. “I don’t,” Shanahan said. “I’ve never had to make that decision before, and I won’t make that until I see him. I mean, I’m going to do everything I can [to see] that he plays against Pittsburgh, but I can’t make that decision until you see a guy; you see him out there. “Hopefully, we get a chance to get him into practice next week, and if he is, that’ll make it a much easier decision for us.” Bosa has stayed away from the team, working out on his own, while awaiting a new contract.
