RB - SF - OUT
Week 3 Outlook
RB Tevin Coleman is expected to miss “multiple weeks” due to a knee injury, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.
There is no exact timeline for how much Coleman will miss, but he is expected to “miss multiple weeks.” Raheem Mostert is unlikely to play Week 3, which leaves Jerick McKinnon and Jeff Wilson as the only healthy RBs for the 49ers. Coleman will most likely be placed on the IR and will miss a few games.
The 49ers are concerned over Tevin Coleman's knee injury, which he sustained against the Jets, according to Kyle Shanahan.
The team is still awaiting MRI results on Coleman's knee, but this is obviously troublesome news for the running back. Fantasy managers rostering Coleman weren't starting him to this point anyway, but he'll almost certainly miss his opportunity in Week 3 to fill in for Raheem Mostert. The 49ers should announce the details of the Coleman's injury after they receive the results of the MRI.
Tevin Coleman rushed 14 times for only 12 yards while hauling in each of his two targets for 28 yards during the 49ers' 31-13 victory over the lowly Jets.
Coleman saw increased usage with Raheem Mostert (knee) forced to miss the entire second half but did little with his opportunity. Instead, he was forced to watch Jerick McKinnon rush for 65 more yards on 11 fewer carries (!). Regardless of Sunday's forgettable showing, Mostert may be force to miss a few weeks, therefore making Coleman and McKinnon interesting waiver wire additions for the time being, however, it wouldn't be surprising to see to Coleman run behind McKinnon going forward.
Tevin Coleman rushed four times for 18 yards while adding one reception for six yards through the air during the 49ers' 20-24 loss to the Cardinals in Week 1.
Coleman wasn't a lock to play in this one, as the AQI due to the California wildfires presented a potential issue for his sickle cell anemia sickness. Although he did take the field, he was rather ineffective and took a backseat to Raheem Mostert and Jerick McKinnon in the backfield. It's unclear if his role in the rushing attack was scaled back due to his health, but for the time being it appears McKinnon has jumped him in the pecking order. He is best viewed as a bench stash moving forward.
ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the 49ers are "still uncertain" about RB Tevin Coleman's playing status for Week 1.
Coleman has a preexisting health condition that could be affected by the air quality in the Bay Area as a result of the surrounding wildfires in California. Per sources close to the situation, the 49ers are leaving the decision on whether nor not to play for Coleman to make. If Coleman sits, Raheem Mostert and Jerick McKinnon's roles are quite a bit more clear-cut in a terrific matchup for enemy running backs against the Cardinals. While Mostert is in the middling RB2 tier for Week 1, McKinnon is a high-floor Flex option in PPR.
