Wilson caught his lone target for a 25-yard touchdown in Sunday's 36-26 win over the Cardinals.
Wilson was limited to special teams duties for nearly the entire contest until he briefly saw the field for a screen pass that he took for 25 yards to seal the win for San Francisco. The 24-year-old was able to shed his healthy scratch status due to Matt Breida's ankle injury. If the latter is unable to heal up before next Sunday's contest against the Packers, then Wilson will suit up as depth and once again have the opportunity to vulture touchdowns away from the workhorses in the 49ers' running back stable -- he has five touchdowns on only 27 touches this season.
Wilson (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday's game versus the Seahawks.
Raheem Mostert continues to play through a knee injury, but roster restrictions elsewhere seem to have forced coach Kyle Shanahan's hand. With Wilson sidelined, the 49ers will ride Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida out of the backfield while Mostert mostly is contained to special teams.
Wilson caught a two-yard pass during Thursday's 28-25 win over Arizona.
Wilson's target was just his second of the season after 15 targets in six games in 2018. Wilson has had some big games in his first two seasons in the league, including back-to-back two-score games in Weeks 2 and 3 when San Francisco's backfield was banged up. The sophomore back can produce in Kyle Shanahan's offense when given the opportunity, but at the moment there are too many other weapons available to give Wilson those opportunities. Next up is a Seattle defense surrendering 4.7 yards per carry, sixth worst in the league.
Wilson (stinger) wasn't listed on Monday's estimated injury report, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
Wilson exited Sunday's win over the Panthers to be evaluated for a head injury, though it was later clarified to be a stinger. The 49ers have a short week of preparation for Thursday's game against the Cardinals, so the fact he isn't listed at all with the short turnaround indicates he's fully clear of the injury.
Coach Kyle Shanahan qualified Wilson's (head) injury as a stinger in his post-game press conference after defeating the Panthers on Sunday, adding that Wilson's not in the concussion protocol, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Wilson avoiding a concussion is good news, but he should still be considered questionable for San Francisco's Week 9 tilt in Arizona. It doesn't help that the team's on a short week, with the game taking place Thursday.
Wilson was forced out of Sunday's game against the Panthers with a head injury, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
The initial contact provided a scary scene for Wilson, but he walked off under his own power. After leaving the injury tent, Wilson was spotted slapping hands with teammates and appeared OK, but there's no reason to put him back on the field with the game out of hand. Wilson will finish Sunday's game with two carries for six yards. His practice status may be monitored closely on a short week ahead of Thursday's game against the Cardinals.
Wilson ran the ball five times for 20 yards in Sunday's 9-0 win over Washington.
Wilson received his first carries since Week 3 (when he filled in for Tevin Coleman) after being limited to special teams duties against the Rams last week. The 23-year-old appears to have flipped roles with fellow backup Raheem Mostert, as the latter was limited to snaps on special teams. If Wilson continues to hold that third spot on the depth chart, there would be potential for touchdowns after he recorded four scores over the span of two games while serving as the team's goal-line back. The North Texas product's value will be touchdown-dependent in a limited role against the Panthers on Sunday.
Wilson (coach's decision) might be active Sunday against the Rams, Cam Inman of the East Bay Times reports.
If Wilson does play, it will be at the expense of a player at a different position and not one of the other three running backs. Wilson would be a candidate for goal-line touches, but his fantasy value would still be limited, with the 49ers' other running backs also in the mix.
Wilson (coach's decision) is inactive for Monday's game against the Browns.
Wilson will yield his spot on the game-day roster to Tevin Coleman, who is playing for the first time since Week 1 after completing his recovery from a high ankle sprain. This may be Wilson's reality moving forward unless one of Coleman, Matt Breida or Raheem Mostert suffer an injury.
Wilson carried the ball eight times for 18 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 24-20 win over the Steelers.
He also failed to bring in his only target. Stuck on the practice squad in Week 1, Wilson has now scored four TDs in the last two games and emerged as Kyle Shanahan's preferred short-yardage and goal-line option in the backfield. While Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert will continue to see most of the touches between the 20s as long as Tevin Coleman (ankle) is sidelined, Wilson may be carving out a role for himself that will last even after Coleman gets healthy.
Wilson received 10 carries for 34 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 41-17 win over the Bengals.
Wilson was signed off the practice squad with Tevin Coleman (ankle) sidelined, and the second-year back immediately made his presence felt with his first career TDs. Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert did most of the damage between the 20s, while Wilson saw most of his work when the game was sealed in the fourth quarter, despite the game stats showing a nearly even split in workload. Wilson may prove to be the best option near the goal line after Sunday's showing, even if he is third on the depth chart in terms of carry volume heading into next week's matchup against the Steelers.
Wilson is listed as active Sunday at Cincinnati.
With Tevin Coleman sidelined due to a high ankle sprain, the 49ers opted to promote Wilson from their practice squad to serve as a reserve running back behind Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert. Mostert seems to hold more utility as a special-teamer than Wilson, but the former still stands to serve as Breida's primary backup during Coleman's absence. In six appearances last season, Wilson gutted out 266 yards at a clip of 4.0 YPC while hauling in 12 of 15 passes for 98 yards.
Wilson was promoted to the 49ers' 53-man active roster Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
This move was predicted days ago, as Wilson is expected to provide depth behind Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert with Tevin Coleman (ankle) out multiple weeks. Wilson was solid in limited opportunities last year, turning 66 carries into 266 rushing yards over the course of six games.
Wilson likely will be promoted from the 49ers practice squad after Tevin Coleman suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay, Eric Branch of The San Francisco Chronicle reports.
It isn't clear if the transaction will happen Monday or later in the week. Either way, Wilson will slot in behind Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert in the San Francisco backfield for a Week 2 game in Cincinnati. Coleman is expected to miss multiple games.
San Francisco signed Wilson to its practice squad Sunday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Wilson did not make the 49ers' final 53-man roster, but he cleared waivers and is now stashed on the practice squad. The 23-year-old flashed some promise this preseason, racking up 178 yards (4.3 YPC) and four touchdowns. The team is currently carrying three backs -- none of which are the model of good health -- so Wilson figures to be the first man called upon should any of the current players in the rotation go down for any period of time.
The 49ers waived Wilson as part of Saturday's final roster cuts, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Maiocco noted that Wilson was the last player to be alerted of his departure, showing that the team's front office was heavily debating whether or not to keep the backup until the 11th hour. San Francisco would likely keep the 23-year-old on the practice squad if he clears waivers, but its chances may be slim after Wilson's strong preseason (178 yards, four touchdowns and a 4.3 YPC) and brief success against NFL defenses last season (66 carries for 266 rushing yards).
Wilson rushed 20 times for 100 yards and a touchdown in Thursday's preseason finale against the Chargers.
Wilson led all skill position players with 108 all-purpose yards, including an impressive 41-yard touchdown scamper where he cut back against the grain and hit paydirt. The 23-year-old appeared to be on the outside looking in when it came to the 53-man roster, but Jerick McKinnon's (knee) recent setback may open a potential spot for Wilson. We will find out of the second-year back's strong final audition was enough to make it past final roster cuts Saturday.
Wilson ran for 45 yards on 12 carries, scoring two rushing touchdowns during Saturday's 27-17 preseason win against the Chiefs.
With Saturday night's performance in the books, Wilson now leads the 49ers in rushing yards over the past two weeks, while logging three combined scores on the ground against Denver and Kansas City. He didn't account for a single rushing or receiving touchdown in six regular-season appearances for San Francisco last year, though he did average north of four yards per carry, while having one explosive receiving performance -- eight catches for 73 yards against Seattle in Week 13. Wilson has been productive when granted opportunities within Kyle Shanahan's offense, but competing within one of the most top-loaded position groups in the NFL, he isn't guaranteed substantial playing time if he's able to secure a roster spot behind presumed No. 1 and 2 options Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida.
Wilson (calf) carried the ball nine times for 33 yards and a touchdown in Monday's preseason win over Denver.
Wilson missed the 49ers' first preseason contest with a calf injury, but he looked healthy after the brief absence. The 23-year-old proved he can hang in the NFL when he was forced into action off of the practice squad last season (66 carries for 266 yards). That said, Wilson will find it hard to make the 53-man roster if the team's current stable of running backs is healthy when roster cuts are due.
Wilson (calf) was a full participant in Tuesday's practice, according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.
Wilson suffered a calf injury early in camp, and his return to the field falls in line with the initial one- to two-week timetable. Expect the 23-year-old to get plenty of looks this preseason as he attempts to wiggle his way onto the 53-man roster of a team with plenty of talented backs ahead of him on the depth chart.
