Niners RB Tevin Coleman is active for tonight's game against the Browns. It will mark his 1st game back since suffering a high-ankle sprain in the opener. With Coleman back, RB Jeff Wilson is inactive -- a healthy scratch. That leaves the backfield as Coleman, Raheem Mostert and Matt Breida.
Niners RB Tevin Coleman is questionable for Monday night’s game against the Browns. HC Kyle Shanahan is optimistic that Coleman’s ankle will allow him to play. The Monday night kick, of course, makes it tough to wait for Coleman in fantasy. The potential for Coleman to return does hurt the outlook for Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert.
49ers RB Tevin Coleman (ankle) put in a limited practice on Thursday. It gives him a shot to return for Monday night's game vs. the Browns after he went down with a high-ankle sprain back in Week 1. It's unclear how San Francisco will divvy carries between Coleman, Matt Breida, Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson.
49ers RB Tevin Coleman has a high-ankle sprain and is considered "week-to-week," HC Kyle Shanahan said Monday. High-ankle sprains tend to be 4-6 weeks injuries, so don't bank on seeing Coleman until October. San Francisco has a Week 4 bye, so we'd consider Week 5 Coleman's earliest possible return date. His absence leaves Matt Breida as the 49ers' lead back -- and a weekly fantasy starter. Raheem Mostert moves up to #2 on the depth chart and is worth stashing in deeper fantasy leagues.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that 49ers RB Tevin Coleman is expected to miss time with the ankle injury he suffered in yesterday's win over the Bucs. Coleman is undergoing additional testing today to determine the severity of the injury, so we should learn more over the next 24 hours. His absence will leave Matt Breida atop the depth chart and Raheem Mostert as the #2 RB.
49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said after Sunday's win over the Bucs that he's "concerned" about RB Tevin Coleman's ankle injury. Coleman had a walking boot on his left foot and is scheduled for an MRI on Monday. We should learn more then. If Coleman misses time, Matt Breida will be San Francisco's lead back with Raheem Mostert the #2.
49ers RB Tevin Coleman injured his ankle in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Bucs and has been ruled out for the rest of the day. That leaves Matt Breida as San Francisco's lead back and Raheem Mostert as the #2. We'll update Coleman's status when we learn more.
The 49ers listed Matt Breida as the 1st-team RB on their "unofficial" Week 1 depth chart. Insider Matt Maiocco notes that this depth chart is put together by the team's football communication's staff. RB Tevin Coleman reportedly ran ahead of Breida throughout training camp and out-snapped Breida 27 to 18 with the 1st-team offense in preseason action, so we're not sure what to make of the depth-chart listing. We'll start to get answers in Sunday's opener against the Bucs. Consider both guys upside RB3s for Week 1.
The 49ers have opted to place RB Jerick McKinnon (knee) on season-ending injured reserve, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That leaves Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida as the team's clear top 2 RBs. Raheem Mostert is 3rd on the depth chart.
The 49ers are placing RB Jerick McKinnon (knee) on IR, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It's unclear if McKinnon has a shot to play the 2nd half of the season as a designated-to-return player. Rapoport hears that McKinnon might have had another procedure on that troublesome knee. We'll keep an eye on him, but McKinnon isn't worth stashing in fantasy leagues that don't have an IR spot. RBs Tevin Coleman (5.09) and Matt Breida (8.02) are both worth considering at ADP.
49ers RB Jerick McKinnon (knee) returned to practice on Tuesday. He made it just a couple of days in early August before experiencing discomfort in his surgically repaired knee. We'll see if he's truly good to go now. But he's the clear #3 on the depth chart at this point behind Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida. McKinnon is no more than a late-round flier in fantasy drafts.
Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports that HC Kyle Shanahan named RB Jerick McKinnon among "a slew" of Niners who are "on tap to return to practice this week." That'd obviously be great news for a player who opened training camp on the PUP and then suffered a setback in his repaired knee shortly after returning. McKinnon will need to prove his knee can hold up this time before he's worth much fantasy football draft attention. We'd still much rather take Matt Breida. Tevin Coleman is OK at cost.
The 49ers have signed RB Tevin Coleman to a 2-year deal worth a "maximum" of $10 million. Coleman spent his first 2 NFL seasons with 49ers HC Kyle Shanahan in Atlanta, which will certainly help as he makes this move. Coleman joins a 49ers backfield alongside RB Jerick McKinnon, who got a 4-year, $30 million deal last offseason. We'll see how much a factor those contracts are when these guys start to battle for playing time. But we're likely looking at a committee backfield considering neither McKinnon nor Coleman profiles as a workhorse.
