The San Francisco 49ers have been one of the unluckiest teams in the league when it comes to injuries once again in 2022. One player knocked out of commission was promising rookie running back Tyrion Davis-Price, who suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 2.

Now the Niners have received an exciting update on the RB.

Davis-Price returned to practice on Wednesday for the first time since going down with his ankle issue. This is great news for San Francisco after the rookie was sidelined for nearly a month.

TDP looked set for a big role to begin his career following starter Elijah Mitchell suffering a strained MCL in Week 1. The third-round pick handled 14 carries for the 49ers in their first game without Mitchell, but his own injury then slowed any momentum.

Veteran Jeff Wilson Jr. has led this backfield instead, with the likes of Tevin Coleman and Jordan Mason sprinkling in. With Mitchell expected to return sometimes in November, though, there's still an opportunity for TDP to earn a larger role for this run-heavy offense.

Hopefully Davis-Price's return to the field goes off without a hitch and he's able to suit up in the next week or two. It'd be no surprise to see San Francisco be cautious given their injury woes.
