49ers RB Trey Sermon (concussion) has been medically cleared and isn't listed on the final injury report. With RB JaMycal Hasty (ankle) out and RB Elijah Mitchell (shoulder) doubtful, it's currently Sermon, Trenton Cannon and Jacques Patrick at RB on San Francisco's active roster. RBs Kerryon Johnson and Chris Thompson are eligible to be activated from the practice squad. HC Kyle Shanahan wouldn't say Friday afternoon who will get the start vs. Green Bay, but multiple 49ers beat writers expect it to be Sermon. We'll continue to look for clues on how the touches will be divvied.
49ers HC Kyle Shanahan confirmed on Wednesday that RB Trey Sermon remains behind Elijah Mitchell and Jeff Wilson on the depth chart. “Trey had an opportunity (earlier this season) when guys got hurt and I thought he got better in each game with that. But he didn’t do enough for us to put him ahead of Elijah or Jeff," Shanahan said. Sermon could get some touches this weekend if Mitchell's finger injury keeps him out, but Wilson would be the 49ers RB to use in fantasy lineups.
49ers RB Trey Sermon will "lead the way" and get the "bulk of carries" vs. the Packers tonight, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. We've heard the same from multiple 49ers beat writers. Sermon isn't the safest Week 3 fantasy play -- but he has loads of upside in a plus matchup.
49ers RB Trey Sermon (concussion) remained limited in Thursday's practice. He still has multiple stages of the protocol to clear if he's to play vs. the Packers on Sunday night. We'll get another update on his progress tomorrow.
49ers RB Trey Sermon (concussion) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. It means that he's made some progress through the league's protocol. If Sermon can get cleared in time for Sunday night's game vs. the Packers, the 49ers might be forced to give him a significant role.
49ers HC Kyle Shanahan confirmed on Monday that RB Trey Sermon sustained a concussion in the win over the Eagles. It happened on Sermon's 1st carry of the game, which didn't come until the 4th quarter. We'll see when the rookie is cleared, but he's a ways away from fantasy relevance right now.
