    SANTA CLARA https://www.49ersfanshop.com/Bradley-Pinion-Jersey , Calif. (AP) —Francisco's injury-riddled backfield.After starting his rookie season as an undrafted player on the practice squad, Wilson will be thrust into a starting role this week after the latest injury to a 49ers running back.Wilson showed he might be up to the task with a strong performance in his first extensive action as a pro last week in Seattle. He rushed for 61 yards on 15 carries and caught eight passes for 73 yards as one of San Francisco's few bright spots in a loss to the Seahawks. His physical running style sparked the Niners (2-10) out of a sluggish offensive start on a day leading rusher Matt Breida injured his ankle in warmups and managed only limited action."That's his style. That's what got him an opportunity in this league," coach Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday. "That's what he does best. That's why he's going to make it. I hope he doesn't lose that, for his and our sakes. He runs hard and that's what he does good. Hopefully, we can keep him healthy and he keeps getting better and better."Wilson wasn't supposed to have this big a role as a rookie. He signed with San Francisco as an undrafted rookie out of North Texas last spring and was far down the depth chart at the start of training camp.But projected starter Jerick McKinnon went down with a season-ending knee injury a week before the opener, backup Raheem Mostert then went down with a broken arm on Nov. 1 and now Breida is out this week against Denver with the injured ankle.That has given Wilson a chance to play and show what he can do down the stretch run of a lost season for San Francisco."I'm just trying to do my job," he said. "I don't have any personal goals. I just love and enjoy playing football. As long as I do that, it will be good for me."Wilson was lightly recruited out of high school and ended up at North Texas, where he ran for 3,204 yards in four seasons. He went undrafted but was attracted to the Niners because of the success running backs coach Bobby Turner has had with unheralded backs during his lengthy career in the NFL.Wilson bulked up a bit since joining the 49ers and has impressed his coaches with a physical running style."You always have to pick and choose your battles," he said. "I'm not just going to run down the middle and just do it willingly. There are certain times you do it and certain times you don't. I'm an aggressive runner."The pleasant surprise for the 49ers has been at how quickly Wilson has adapted to the passing game. He caught just 70 passes in four seasons in college, but showed a good ability to be a threat in the screen game with eight catches last week.He said he's worked extremely hard at improving that aspect of the game and the results have been clear."He's done a great job of learning the offense, running Laken Tomlinson Jersey , blocking, pass routes," quarterback Nick Mullens said. "He can do a little bit of everything and once he got his opportunity, I think everybody saw how hard he runs. That fires me up. He brings it every carry that he's going to get. So, I think Jeff is ready to step in and take that role on for sure."NOTES: Shanahan changed up the practice schedule, having the players come in an hour early and leave earlier in the day. Shanahan said he just wanted a change, although he did notice players being a little more groggy at the opening meeting at 7 a.m. "Sometimes, you've got to yell a little bit more to make sure they're attentive in the early meetings because they're not all drinking as much coffee as the coaches are," he said. … The Niners signed long snapper Colin Holba to replace the suspended Kyle Nelson. … Edge rusher Pita Taumoepenu was promoted from the practice squad to replace the injured Dekoda Watson, who went on IR. … Breida (ankle), safety Jaquiski Tartt (stinger), C Weston Richburg (knee) and LT Joe Staley (rest) didn't practice. So, I’ve been one to say the 49ers didn’t want Terrell Owens Color Rush Jersey , nor need Josh Gordon and he also wasn’t worth getting aggressive for. The 49ers elected to send a flier to get his services, but didn’t go into a bidding war with New England. Good. Then everyone got mad the front office didn’t do more. Well, Josh Gordon is again out of the league to go address some mental health concerns. That right there is why the 49ers didn’t get aggressive. How much more ticked would everyone be if the front office sent a third or fourth round pick to Cleveland only to have that end the way it did. Now, I hope Gordon can get his issues ironed out. Mental health is no joke and nothing to [site decorum] with. I hope he gets the help he needs from a personal standpoint. From a football standpoint, this is why the 49ers didn’t break their bank for the guy. There were just too many issues there. Not to mention they had their hands full with Reuben Foster. It doesn’t change that the 49ers missed out on Khalil Mack, but if you compare the 49ers to the Chicago bears in the 2018 season without Mack, going with the Bears sounded logical from the Raiders point of view. Why? Because I would have put money that the 49ers would have finished with a better record than the Bears, especially with Mack. They rejected the Rams for the same reason—the Rams draft pick wouldn’t have been as good. Now the 49ers can regret getting Mack all they want, but the real people to laugh at are the Raiders. They missed out on better draft picks. As far as the front office. These guys aren’t as bad as some want to make them out to be. 49ers injury report: Jaquiski Tartt out Sunday vs. Bears (Madson)DeForest Buckner breaks down art of pass rushing, keys to breakout season (KNBR)49ers on pace for franchise-low rushing TDs with Bears on tap (Inman)At least 49ers know how to close a season (Madson)49ers to see familiar face when Vic Fangio brings Bears’ defense to Levi’s (Cohn)49ers’ vision at cornerback could be shaped in final weeks of season (Maiocco)2019 NFL draft: 49ers address top 3 needs in Draft Wire mock (Madson)49ers-Bears injury report: Rookies could get opportunities vs. Bears (Chan)Why 49ers Richard Sherman sees this as a gratifying season (Inman)Jaquiski Tartt’s shoulder injury to land him on injured reserve (Madson)Report: Raiders may play in San Francisco (Florio)Kyle Shanahan envisions increased competition, better 49ers depth for 2019 (Maiocco)Richard Sherman: Rookie SS Marcell Harris playing ‘out of this world’ (Madson)What a horrible night to have a curse...
