Coleman dislocated his right shoulder during Sunday's 37-20 win against the Packers in the NFC Championship Game, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Coach Kyle Shanahan relayed the news Monday, noting the 49ers are awaiting additional imaging on the affected region. Still, he "expects him [Coleman] to have a good chance to play" in the Super Bowl versus the Chiefs on Feb. 2. Prior to suffering the injury, Coleman turned six carries into 21 yards and wasn't targeted. In his stead, Raheem Mostert took the bull by the horns, galloping 29 times for 220 yards and four touchdowns. Because Coleman's health is compromised, he may find it difficult to be the top option out of the 49ers' backfield in the final game of the season, but such a decision will be based off the next two weeks of prep and rehab.
Coleman is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his injured shoulder Monday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Coleman recorded six carries for 21 yards in Sunday's NFC Championship win over the Packers before injuring his shoulder, as a result of which he was subsequently carted off the field. Coach Kyle Shanahan said following the playoff win that he thinks there "will be a good chance" for Coleman to be available during Super Bowl 54 in two weeks, per Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com. Given Raheem Mostert's explosion for 220 yards and four touchdowns, of course, it remains to be seen how the 49ers' backfield split would play out with Coleman available.
Coleman (shoulder) is ruled out to return to Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Packers.
Coleman suffered a shoulder injury during the second quarter of Sunday's playoff game, the severity of which required him to be carted off the field. With Raheem Mostert already having surpassed 160 rushing yards and scored three touchdowns, the 49ers have reason to feel confident taking a conservative approach with regard to Coleman's recovery.
Coleman is questionable to return to Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Packers due to a shoulder injury, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Coleman was carted off the field in noticeable pain, leaving Raheem Mostert and Matt Breida to helm San Francisco's rushing attack. He sustained the injury in the second quarter while handling an inside run.
Coleman left Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Packers in the second quarter due to an injury, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Coleman appeared to suffer an elbow injury following an inside run, the severity of which caused him to be carted off the field. Raheem Mostert and Matt Breida will handle the 49ers' backfield reps in his stead, with Jeff Wilson inactive.
Coleman rushed 22 times for 105 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 27-10 win over the Vikings.
Coleman split starting duties with Raheem Mostert. as per usual, but the former had a bit more success early on. This led to coach Kyle Shanahan rolling with the hot hand -- as he is prone to do -- in the second half, and Coleman ran roughshod all over Minnesota's front seven while Mostert left the game in the fourth quarter with a calf cramp. The 22 carries were a new season high for the 26-year-old; in fact, he had only reached the 20-carry mark just once in 2019, and he hadn't received double-digit touches since Week 12 of the regular season. Saturday's box score should lead to Coleman becoming the preferred option coming out of San Francisco's backfield for the NFC Championship Game next Sunday, but Mostert will also see a healthy amount of touches to remain relevant as a DFS option.
Coleman rushed five times for 11 yards and caught one pass for seven yards in Sunday's 26-21 win over Seattle.
Raheem Mostert saw the bulk of playing time (54 percent of offensive snaps) and touches (11), leaving Coleman to share scraps with fellow backup Matt Breida. The former Atlanta Falcon began the year as his new team's starter, and while he experienced early success -- 309 rushing yards and five touchdowns in Weeks 5 through 8 -- the veteran saw his role diminish significantly in the second half of the season. Coleman still managed to finish with a respectable mark of 4.0 yards per carry, but his role for next season is uncertain with fellow backs Raheem Mostert and Matt Breida under team control for 2020. Coleman's outlook could change based on how he and the rest of the 49ers' running back unit performs during the playoffs.
Coleman rushed five times for 33 yards in Saturday's 34-31 win over the Rams.
Coleman was limited to single-digit carries for the fourth straight week (4.3 carries over that span) and was held without a reception for the third game in a row. The 26-year-old still logged 24 snaps on offense (42 percent), so he should still be considered the "1B" behind Raheem Mostert (11 carries and 31 offensive snaps), but the latter has been the far more productive back in recent weeks. Coleman has been running better of late (8.1 yards per carry) after enduring a rough stretch in the middle of the season, but the limited usage keeps his fantasy stock low heading into a showdown against Seattle in Week 17 that will settle the NFC West standings.
Coleman registered 40 rushing yards on four carries during Sunday's 29-22 loss to Atlanta.
So much for working in Coleman against his former team of four years, as the 26-year-old back was out-touched by both Raheem Mostert (15) and Matt Breida (six) during the 49ers' Week 15 defeat. On the bright side, among San Francisco's top three backs Coleman was the only one not to fumble Sunday, perhaps opening up an opportunity for him moving forward should the 49ers' coaching staff elect to prioritize ball security. Coleman has committed zero fumbles thus far in 2019, but he is averaging a meager 3.7 yards per carry heading into a Week 16 matchup against the Rams.
Coleman rushed three times for six yards in Sunday's 48-46 win over New Orleans.
Coleman began the contest as the 49ers' starting running back, but just like last week, he struggled on the opening drive and became a ghost for the remainder of the game (just 11 offensive snaps). Matt Breida (ankle) returned from a three-week absence and was also limited to 12 snaps, but he was far more effective with his limited touches (six carries for 54 yards). It was Raheem Mostert who took control of the backfield and became the "hot hand" for the second consecutive week (on the field for 60 percent of offensive snaps). The latter is the back to target out of the three heading into a soft matchup against Atlanta, and Breida may be next in line based on Coleman's recent struggles.
Coleman is welcoming back Matt Breida (ankle) to the 49ers' backfield Sunday at New Orleans, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Coleman received his normal workload in Weeks 11 and 12 en route to 28 touches for 126 yards from scrimmage and one TD. In Week 13 at Baltimore, though, Coleman was usurped by Raheem Mostert, seeing just six touches to the latter's 21. The reintroduction of Breida further clouds Coleman's potential to produce. especially against a Saints defense that has allowed just 3.5 yards per carry and 97.6 yards from scrimmage per game to running backs in 12 outings this season.
Coleman rushed five times for six yards and caught his lone target for nine more in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Ravens.
Coleman was outplayed by Raheem Mostert, who turned 21 touches into 154 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown. With Matt Breida (ankle) potentially returning Week 14 against the Saints, Coleman's role in the offense could be in jeopardy if the team opts to keep Mostert involved after his breakout performance.
Coleman rushed 11 times for 39 yards and a touchdown while catching two passes (four targets) for 10 yards in Sunday's 37-8 win over the Packers.
Coleman had trouble finding any running room behind his offensive line for the fourth consecutive week. The 26-year-old has averaged just 29.0 yards (2.6 yards per carry) on the ground over that four-game span, 2.5 of which have been without his co-starter Matt Breida (ankle). The road doesn't get any easier for Coleman, as a top-10 rush defense is on tap on the road against Baltimore in Week 13. He remains in flex territory as the touch leader of a committee backfield and recent favorite for goal-line touches.
Coleman carried the ball 12 times for 14 yards while catching three of four targets for 48 yards in Sunday's 36-26 win over the Cardinals.
His inability to get much going on the ground contributed to the 16-0 hole the Niners found themselves in midway through the second quarter, but Coleman was able to salvage his day somewhat with his contributions through the air. Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson combined for nine touches behind him, so even with Matt Breida (ankle) inactive, Coleman didn't dominate the workload in the backfield. Coleman will look to make a bigger impact Week 12 against a Packers defense that ranks in the bottom 10 in yards per carry and rushing yards per game allowed.
Coleman (personal) was on the field for Friday's practice, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Coleman stepped away from the team Thursday to address a personal matter, but his return to work Friday along with the fact that he doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Cardinals erases any concern about his Week 11 availability. With Matt Breida (ankle) listed as doubtful and Raheem Mostert (knee) listed as questionable this weekend, Coleman appears well positioned to handle one of his heavier workloads of the season. Since maxing out at 20 carries in the rain-soaked Week 7 win over Washington, Coleman has averaged 10.7 totes across San Francisco's subsequent three contests.
Coleman (personal) was excused from Thursday's practice due to a personal matter, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
Coleman's absence from practice was surprising after he got through Week 10 unscathed and practiced fully Wednesday, but his fantasy managers appear to have dodged a bullet with news that he was missing for non-injury reasons. The nature of the personal issue isn't known, so Coleman isn't completely out of the woods yet, especially if he isn't back on the field Friday for the 49ers' final practice of the week. Assuming Coleman is able to suit up against the Cardinals this Sunday, he could absorb a larger portion of touches, as Matt Breida looks at major risk of sitting out after re-injuring his ankle in the Week 10 loss to the Seahawks. Even if Breida sits out, Raheem Mostert would also eat up some of the backfield work, limiting Coleman from becoming a true workhorse against the Cardinals' 24th-ranked rush defense.
Coleman rushed nine times for 40 yards and caught all four of his targets for 32 yards in Monday night's 27-24 overtime loss to the Seahawks.
Coleman trailed Matt Breida's 10 carries despite his teammate exiting early with an ankle injury. With Breida out, Raheem Mostert took on a larger role, finishing with six carries for 28 yards. Although Coleman didn't get much going on the ground, he at least hauled in all his looks through the air, placing second in receptions and third on the team in receiving yards. The health of Breida should be worthwhile to monitor in relation to Coleman's stock ahead of Week 11's game against the Cardinals.
Coleman and co-starter Matt Breida may benefit from the potential returns of three key pieces of the 49ers' blocking unit in Monday's game against the Seahawks, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
After multi-game absences, left tackle Joe Staley (lower leg), fullback Kyle Juszczyk (knee) and right tackle Mike McGlinchey (knee) all returned to practice Tuesday and have a shot at returning for an important divisional matchup on Monday Night Football. McGlinchey is the most questionable of the trio, as Staley and Juice both stated that they feel "100 percent." Coleman has racked up 332 rushing yards and five total touchdowns in five games without arguably his three best blockers, so any combination of those players returning will be significant boost for one half of San Francisco's league-leading running-back tandem. Expect Coleman and Breida to continue to split touches against a Seattle defense that has been adequate against the run this season, allowing 102.7 rushing yards per game.
Coleman rushed 12 times for 23 yards and secured two of four targets for 13 yards in the 49ers' 28-25 win over the Cardinals on Thursday.
Four days after racking up four total touchdowns at the expense of the Panthers, Coleman came crashing back to earth in an underwhelming performance. Backfield mate Matt Breida took control of the backfield Thursday by turning 15 carries into 78 yards, but the timeshare between the two backs should continue in a fairly even split on the majority of weeks. Coleman tied his lowest rushing total of the season with Thursday's tally, so he'll look to bounce back against the Seahawks in a Week 10 divisional matchup a week from Monday.
Coleman carried the ball 11 times for 105 yards and three touchdowns and caught both his targets for 13 yards and a fourth TD in Sunday's 51-13 rout of the Panthers.
The running back scored three straight TDs in the late first and second quarters, the last on a 48-yard run, before capping his huge day with a one-yard plunge to close out the third quarter. The former Falcon now has six touchdowns through only five games this season along with 393 scrimmage yards, and with Matt Breida injuring his ankle Sunday, Coleman could be headed for a bigger workload next week against the Cardinals.
