Tevin Coleman Sidelined With Ankle Sprain; Will be on Week to Week Basis

Tevin Coleman Injury

After the first week of the 2019 season, the San Francisco 49ers have taken another blow to their running back corps.

Offseason pickup, Tevin Coleman, will miss some time after Sunday’s win over the Buccaneers. The running back exited the game earlier due to a high ankle sprain. Head coach Kyle Shannahan confirmed that although the team will not place Coleman on injury reserve, the injury will be taken week to week.

NFL Insider Ian Rapoport confirmed the news Monday afternoon.

 

In 2018, Coleman started for the majority of the season with the Falcons. The running back rushed for 800 yards and four touchdowns on 167 carries. Coleman proved to be a starting back in the NFL. But, with the return of Devonta Freeman, Coleman was sent to free agency and ended up with San Francisco.

With Coleman sidelined, the Niners running back committee consists of Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert.

Breida proved he could carry the load of the running back snaps last year after Jerick McKinnon was placed on injury reserve with a knee injury. Breida carried the ball 153 times for 813 yards and three touchdowns. Along with Mostert, Breida will have to lead the 49ers running game while Coleman is out.
