Tevin Coleman Injury Updates

49ers RB Matt Breida (ankle) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll return to the backfield alongside Tevin Coleman and Raheem Mostert for Sunday’s game against the Saints. It’s anyone’s guess as to how touches will be divvied between those 3, leaving them all as risk/reward RB3 or flex plays.

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.

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (groin) is not listed on the final Week 17 injury report. He only got in a limited practice on Friday but will play against the Bucs this weekend. Coleman could cede work to RB Brian Hill, making him a risky fantasy play.

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman suffered a groin injury in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Panthers. He carried 10 times for 51 yards before exiting. If Coleman is unable to play in the finale, Atlanta will be down to RBs Brian Hill and Jeremy Langford.

Panthers DT Kawann Short is inactive for today's game against the Falcons because of a calf injury. That takes Carolina's best D-lineman out of the lineup, improving the matchup for Falcons RB Tevin Coleman. The 1st meeting found Coleman delivering 1 of his two 100-yard rushing lines so far this year.

Falcons RB Ito Smith needs knee surgery and will be placed on IR, HC Dan Quinn said Monday. No word on Smith's exact injury or how long he'll be sidelined. His absence leaves Tevin Coleman and Brian Hill as the only RBs on Atlanta's roster -- although Quinn said he'd consider promoting Jeremy Langford from the practice squad. Either way, Coleman is looking at a hefty workload these final 2 weeks.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman missed Wednesday's practice with a foot injury. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that it's a bone contusion and that Freeman's availability for this weekend's game against the Bucs is "clearly in doubt." We'll keep an eye on the situation. Freeman's absence would again make Tevin Coleman Atlanta's lead back with Ito Smith in a change-of-pace role.

As expected, Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Saints. He’s 2 weeks into what was deemed a 2-4 week injury, so consider him questionable for Week 4. Tevin Coleman tallied 20 touches as Atlanta’s lead back last week and is looking at a similar workload on Sunday.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Panthers. The team has insisted that his knee injury is minor, but Freeman didn't practice all week. He's no lock to return for Week 3. Tevin Coleman will operate as a feature back for Atlanta on Sunday. He tallied 58 total yards and a TD and 97 yards and 2 scores, respectively, in the 2 games Freeman missed last year.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) will not practice on Wednesday. HC Dan Quinn said Freeman is "sore" and labeled him "day-to-day." This isn't believed to be a serious injury, but Freeman is far from a lock to play against the Panthers this weekend. His absence would leave Tevin Coleman as Atlanta's feature back. Check back tomorrow for another update.

ESPN's Adam Schefter hears that Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (hamstring) is "unlikely" to play against the Packers this weekend. The team is still awaiting test results on the severity of Coleman's injury, but we were reminded this week of the risk of pushing a RB through a hamstring injury. Coleman's absence would put RB Devonta Freeman in a feature-back role. He averaged 17.6 carries and 4.9 catches per game in that spot last year.

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman suffered a hamstring injury in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Chargers. He headed back to the locker room with trainers and is officially questionable to return. We'll pass along an update when we get one.

Falcons HC Dan Quinn called Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman a "unique combination" in the backfield.  Freeman was obviously the fantasy star last year, but remember that Coleman began the season as the starter.  “In terms of him like running in the outside zone, seeing his reads and making his cuts, he was really on point,” Quinn said of last year's 3rd-round pick.  Coleman missed 4 games with rib and head injuries but averaged a solid 4.5 yards per carry in the other 12.  Freeman, meanwhile, finished with just 4.0 yards per attempt.  He'll remain Atlanta's passing-down back in 2016, but Coleman is a major threat to steal early-down work.
