The 49ers backfield was thinned Thursday during the team’s preseason opener against the Cowboys as running back Matt Breida suffered a shoulder injury.

Coach Kyle Shanahan didn’t have a diagnosis after the 49ers win, but said: "I know it’s going to be some time. So, I don’t know how long, but I have a feeling it’s going to be some time.”

Breida had only one carry for 3 yards before exiting the game.

New addition Jerick McKinnon will be the premier back for the 49ers, but Breida, 23, had taken snaps with the first team in camp after a solid 2017 (105 carries, 465 rushing yards, two touchdowns).

With Breida on the shelf, Raheem Mostert and Joe Williams will see an uptick in carries and battle for the backup role behind McKinnon.

Tight end George Kittle also left the game with a shoulder injury. Veteran Garrett Celek will likely slide into a starting role is Kittle misses time alongside Breida.
