The 49ers will not have running back Elijah Mitchell for the NFC championship game. He has officially been ruled out as part of the team's pre-game inactives.
Mitchell suffered a groin injury in the divisional playoffs against the Cowboys. He didn't participate in practice all week and was listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup. Here's the full list of inactives, which also includes cornerback Ambry Thomas, who was listed as questionable as well.

With Mitchell out, veteran RB Tevin Coleman is active for the 49ers. Rookie RB Jordan Mason could be next in line for carries alongside Christian McCaffrey.
Veteran CB Janoris Jenkins is also up with Thomas sidelined.
