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.

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.

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.
