Wilson (ankle) is expected to land on the 49ers' injured reserve later this week, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
This news come straight from coach Kyle Shanahan. Wilson was excelling in his opportunity as the team's primary back prior to suffering a high-ankle sprain during Sunday's win at New England, accumulating 112 yards and three touchdowns on the ground before exiting. The expected move to IR means he'll join fellow running backs Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Tevin Coleman (knee) on IR, though Coleman could be activated from the list this week. Nonetheless, Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty are the 49ers' current available backs heading into Week 8.
The injury Wilson suffered in Sunday's win over the Patriots is believed to be a high-ankle sprain, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Wilson rumbled for over 100 yards and three touchdowns before his injury. The typical recovery timeline for high-ankle sprains is 4-6 weeks, so there's a good chance Wilson will have to join fellow 49ers running backs Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Tevin Coleman (knee) on IR. If that turns out to be the case, JaMycal Hasty should take on an increased role alongside Jerick McKinnon in the run-heavy 49ers offense.
Wilson (ankle) won't return to Sunday's game at New England, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports.
On his third TD of the day, Wilson was tackled awkwardly, had difficulty getting to his feet and eventually needed a cart to get to the locker room. He was the 49ers' clear lead running back, turning 17 carries into 112 yards and two catches (on two targets) into eight yards. If he eventually requires time on the sideline, Wilson will join Raheem Mostert (knee) and Tevin Coleman (knee) as the team's injured running backs. After that trio, San Francisco is left with Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty out of the backfield.
Wilson is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Patriots due to an ankle injury, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports.
Wilson was enjoying the best game of his career before being carted off in the third quarter. He had 17 carries for 112 yards and three scores. Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty will take over as San Francisco's lead running backs.
Wilson (calf) is active for Sunday's game in New England.
With Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman on IR due to knee injuries, Wilson is part of a backfield rotation along with Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty. Wilson's workload has been all over the place this season, ranging from no touches Week 1 to 15 in Week 3. Overall, though, he's averaged 6.3 touches for 29.5 yards from scrimmage per game to go with two touchdowns in the four games this season in which he's received snaps on offense.
Wilson (calf) is expected to play Sunday against the Patriots, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The 24-year-old received the questionable tag after practicing as a limited participant all week, but he's expected to be available for Sunday's contest in New England. Wilson should see some backfield work with Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty, as Raheem Mostert (ankle) moved to injured reserve.
Wilson (calf) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at New England, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
A limited practice participant throughout the week, Mostert appears truly questionable. Meanwhile, Raheem Mostert (knee) is expected to go on injured reserve, leaving Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty as the healthy options at running back. Wilson could also join the mix, but we may not know for sure until the 49ers release their inactive list approximately 90 minutes prior to Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff. In any case, Wilson likely handle a backup role if he's active.
Wilson (calf) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Before he was deemed inactive this past Sunday against the Rams, Wilson didn't practice Thursday or Friday due to his calf issue. He's been able to get in some reps in both sessions so far this week, with one remaining before the 49ers likely will give him a designation for Sunday's game at New England. If he's active, he'll join Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty in a backfield without Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Tevin Coleman (knee).
Wilson (calf) was limited at Wednesday's practice, Keiana Martin of the 49ers' official site reports.
Currently, the 49ers are without Tevin Coleman (knee) and Raheem Mostert (ankle), so Wilson would be in line for work Week 7 if he can get past his own calf injury. If he does, Wilson will join Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty as backfield options for San Francisco on Sunday at New England.
Coach Kyle Shanahan hopes Wilson (calf) can return to practice Wednesday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
With Tevin Coleman (knee) unlikely to be activated from IR this week and Raheem Mostert about to join him due to a high left ankle sprain, Wilson would be in line for more touches when he can get past the calf injury that kept him in street clothes Sunday versus the Rams. If he participates in Wednesday's session, it'll mark Wilson's first non-DNP since last Wednesday's injury report. Elsewhere in the 49ers backfield, Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty are the only healthy bodies.
Wilson (calf) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Rams, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
The 49ers held Wilson out of practice Thursday and Friday with a calf injury, which will keep him on the sideline for this NFC West matchup. With Wilson out, Raheem Mostert will lead the backfield while Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty fill in when necessary.

Wilson didn't open the week on the practice report, only showing up Thursday as a non-participant due to a calf injury. Due to the 49ers not kicking off until 8:20 p.m. ET on Sunday, considering Wilson in lineups is a difficult prospect if his status comes down to the wire. If Wilson is unable to suit up, Raheem Mostert, Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty will compose San Francisco's backfield.
Wilson didn't practice Thursday due to a calf injury.
Wilson was clear of the 49ers' injury report Wednesday, so this issue may have occurred in practice. How the team lists him Friday will provide a sense of his ability to play Sunday versus the Rams, but an absence Week 6 would leave the backfield in the hands of Raheem Mostert, Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty.
Wilson was on the field for 23 percent of the offensive snaps Sunday, finishing with four carries for 27 yards in a 43-17 loss to Miami.
Raheem Mostert (knee) returned from injury and commanded most of the backfield playing time and production. It appears that Wilson will still be used in short-yardage situations, but there isn't much fantasy value there when Mostert and Jerick McKinnon are both healthy.
Wilson registered six rushing yards on three carries, adding a 13-yard reception on his lone target during Sunday night's 25-20 loss to the Eagles.
Wilson enjoyed a solid receiving day with three catches and 54 yards against the Giants in Week 3, but his performance in that game was boosted significantly by a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns. He otherwise struggled mightily on the ground, registering just 15 yards on 12 attempts. Week 4 against the Eagles, Wilson was shut down on the ground again, now bringing his season-long yard-per-carry average to 1.4. He may sink a spot on the depth chart heading into a Week 5 matchup against the Dolphins, as it's possible starting back Raheem Mostert (knee) makes his return to practice Wednesday.
Wilson rushed 12 times for 15 yards and a touchdown and brought in all three targets for 54 yards and another score in the 49ers' 36-9 win over the Giants on Sunday.
Wilson was slated to complement Jerick McKinnon with both Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman sidelined by knee sprains, and although the third-year back found running room at a premium, he still pounded his way into the end zone from two yards out with 3:35 remaining. Earlier in the fourth quarter, the versatile Wilson also logged a 19-yard scoring grab, making it a rewarding day for fantasy managers who plucked him off the wire this past week or took a shot on him as a DFS punt play. It's worth noting Wilson may be much less of a long shot in a Week 4 Sunday night matchup against the Eagles, considering McKinnon emerged from Sunday's win with a rib injury, Coleman is on injured reserve for at least two more games and Mostert may not be ready to return.
With Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman both ruled out due to knee injuries, Wilson should have a role in the 49ers offense Sunday against the Giants, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
Jerick McKinnon is expected to get the start and most likely the majority of targets, but it isn't quite clear how the carries will be divided, and Wilson does have some history of goal-line usage in Kyle Shanahan's offense. While McKinnon is the preferred fantasy option, Wilson does have some appeal for deeper formats.
Wilson is expected to have an increased role Sunday versus the Giants since Raheem Mostert (knee) and Tevin Coleman (knee) are doubtful, Alex Shultz of SFGate.com reports.
Wilson and Jerick McKinnon will lead the 49ers' backfield in Week 3, and there's a chance practice squad RB JaMycal Hasty gets a few reps, too. Wilson has logged just two carries for three yards through two games, while McKinnon has showed more explosiveness with six rushes for 101 yards and a TD and three receptions for 20 yards and a score. It'll be tough to depend on Wilson in most formats, but he has sneaky TD potential.
Wilson survived the 49ers' final roster cutdown over the weekend and will be one four runnings back on the team's 53-man unit heading into Sunday's season opener versus the Cardinals.
The top three remembers on the 49ers' running-back depth chart were already set in stone, so Wilson was primarily competing with undrafted rookie JaMycal Hasty for one roster spot. The former's inability to qualify for a traditional practice squad spot was likely enough to give him the edge over Hasty. Wilson should only be considered depth to begin the season, and he'll likely be one of the 49ers' healthy inactives Week 1.
The 49ers removed Wilson (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Wilson only spent a handful of days on the list, so it's more likely that he met the caveat of recent exposure to someone who tested positive for COVID-19 -- rather than test positive himself -- upon his arrival to camp. He'll now focus his efforts on retaining a roster spot in a backfield headed up by Raheem Mostert, Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon.
