Who is Nick Mullens? What to Know About the 49ers' Backup Quarterback

C.J. Beathard, the 49ers previous starter, has missed practice before the Raiders game due to a wrist injury. The 23-year-old Mullens was called up to the team's active roster on Sept. 26 after quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a season-ending ACL injury.

Mullens, who was a standout at Southern Mississippi, was signed as undrafted free agent. 

San Francisco (2–7) will host New York (1–7) on Monday night at Levi’s Stadium. Kickoff is set for 8:15 p.m. ET.
