After putting Elijah Mitchell on injured reserve with an MCL sprain, the San Francisco 49ers must find a replacement for last season's breakthrough backfield standout.

Adam Schefter thinks another rookie might take advantage of a situation.

The 49ers will "certainly" give Jeff Wilson extra work, the NFL insider told Field Yates.

After finishing the 2020 season with five touchdowns in his final four games, Jeff Wilson played just nine games the next year.

Schefter cautioned everyone to keep a watch on Jordan Mason, calling him "the person that interests me," nonetheless.

The undrafted rookie out of Georgia Tech "had energy to his game" during the preseason, according to Schefter.

Despite the fact that Tyrion Davis-Price, a third-round pick, is more likely to succeed than Mason based on draft equity.

In addition, Mason beat out Trey Sermon, a third-round pick in 2021, for a roster place.

Mason attracted Schefter's notice after amassing 94 rushing yards on 19 preseason rushes.
