  • 49ers' Tyrion Davis-Price: Remains healthy scratch Sunday

    Davis-Price (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 2 game against the Rams.

    The second-year back remains behind Jordan Mason for the No. 3 running back job, which renders Davis-Price a healthy scratch for the second time in as many games to open the season.

  • 49ers' Tyrion Davis-Price: Sitting out Sunday

    Davis-Price (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Steelers.

    Davis was able to secure a spot on the 53-man roster, but he still remains behind Jordan Mason for the No. 3 role at running back. The 23-year-old will now work to earn a chance to suit up next Sunday against the Rams.

  • 49ers' Tyrion Davis-Price: Earns spot on team

    Davis-Price has a spot on San Francisco's initial 53-man roster.

    A disappointment last year as a rookie third-round pick, Davis-Price had a better summer this time around and ultimately convinced the 49ers to keep four running backs. His position on the team is somewhat tenuous, as the Niners could swap him out for a player at another position if fellow running back Jordan Mason is quick to recover from a foot sprain. Either way, Christian McCaffrey and Elijah Mitchell figure to take nearly all the RB snaps Week 1 at Pittsburgh.

  • 49ers' Tyrion Davis-Price: Makes final case for roster spot

    Davis-Price took 10 carries for 61 yards and caught two of three targets for 16 yards in Friday's 23-12 preseason loss to the Chargers.

    Jordan Mason dominated playing time with the first-team offense even after losing a fumble at the goal line on the opening drive, ultimately recording 10 touches for 72 yards across his two series. The miscue was a big one, of course, and Davis-Price then dominated backfield work with the second-string offense. The Niners might keep both on their initial 53-man roster, but it's not a guarantee, so Davis-Price (or Mason) could end up on the practice squad or with another team instead.

  • 49ers' Tyrion Davis-Price: Starts preseason opener

    Davis-Price started and gained 29 yards on nine carries (no targets) in Sunday's 34-7 preseason loss to Las Vegas.

    Davis-Price got the start over projected third-stringer Jordan Mason in a notable lineup change by head coach Kyle Shanahan. Neither back was able to do much behind an offensive line that was not in sync Sunday. Perhaps the coaching staff wanted to see Davis-Price face the Raiders' starting defense. Whatever the reason may be, expect the second-year back to see plenty of action against the Broncos on Saturday.

  • 49ers' Tyrion Davis-Price: Looks quicker in practice

    Davis-Price is still working behind Elijah Mitchell and Jordan Mason in practice, but the 2022 third-round pick looks "quicker and leaner" than he did last season, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

    Davis-Price still has time to shake off the "bust" label, but he realistically won't be any higher than third on San Francisco's depth chart if everyone is healthy. Christian McCaffrey is among the two or three best in the league at his position, and Mitchell is one of the NFL's better backups. Challenging Mason for the third spot is a realistic goal but would still leave Davis-Price dependent on injuries to see work outside of garbage time in his second pro season. Mason came in as an undrafted rookie last season and quickly moved ahead of his third-round teammate.

  • 49ers' Tyrion Davis-Price: Disappointing rookie season

    Davis-Price rushed for 99 yards and no touchdowns on 34 attempts across six regular-season games in his rookie season.

    Davis-Price failed to earn a significant role on offense at any point of the season, despite the 49ers needing running back depth. The 2022 third-round pick struggled in limited opportunities, averaging a mediocre 2.9 yards per carry while being limited to a healthy scratch most weeks. Davis-Price will have to prove himself in training camp in order to earn a roster spot next season, as he currently sits fourth on San Francisco's depth chart prior to the draft and free agency.

  • 49ers' Tyrion Davis-Price: Inactive Sunday

    Davis-Price is inactive for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Eagles.

    With Davis-Price a healthy scratch and Elijah Mitchell sidelined by a groin injury, Tevin Coleman and Jordan Mason are on hand to provide running back depth Sunday behind the 49ers' top option at the position Christian McCaffrey.

  • 49ers' Tyrion Davis-Price: Sitting out Sunday

    Davis-Price (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Cowboys.

    Davis-Price was also a healthy scratch for the team's wild-card round win over the Seahawks. The rookie running back has failed to gain a steady role with the 49ers this season, although he was active for each of the last three weeks of the regular season. The team will roll with Christian McCaffrey, Elijah Mitchell and Jordan Mason in the backfield Sunday against Dallas.

  • 49ers' Tyrion Davis-Price: Sitting out Saturday

    Davis-Price (coach's decision) is inactive for Saturday's wild-card game against the Seahawks, Lindsey Pallares of the 49ers' official site reports.

    Davis-Price was active for the final three contests of the regular season and got some run on each occasion, managing 62 yards on 18 rushes (3.4 YPC) and going without a target. But now that the 49ers are in the playoffs, they'll tighten up the backfield, with Christian McCaffrey, Elijah Mitchell and Jordan Mason the available options Saturday and practice-squad call-up Tevin Coleman also inactive.

  • 49ers' Tyrion Davis-Price: Disappoints in rookie campaign

    Davis-Price played eight snaps in Sunday's win over the Cardinals, carrying eight times for 27 yards.

    Davis-Price saw action in only six games during his rookie season and finished with a lowly 2.9 yards-per-carry average on 34 totes while failing to find the end zone and going without a target in the passing game. The LSU product had an opportunity to earn significant playing time following starter Elijah Mitchell's Week 1 injury, but he ultimately fell behind undrafted rookie Jordan Mason and practice-squad veteran Tevin Coleman on the depth chart at multiple points throughout the season. Davis-Price didn't show enough as a pure runner in limited opportunities, and he was a non-factor in the passing game. Much like 2021 third-round pick Trey Sermon, Davis-Price may find himself on the roster bubble heading into training camp in 2023 after an uninspiring rookie season.

  • 49ers' Tyrion Davis-Price: Gets one carry in overtime win

    Davis-Price rushed once for five yards and was not targeted in Sunday's 37-34 overtime win over Las Vegas.

    Davis-Price reverted back to third on the running back depth chart as expected after Jordan Mason (hamstring) was limited by injury Week 16. Both rookie backups logged equal snaps on offense (five), but it was Mason who performed better in a limited role (2-13-1). While Davis-Price remains a non-factor in fantasy, he could see a few touches in the last game of the regular season if the team opts to limit Christian McCaffrey's (ankle) snaps ahead of the playoffs.
