49ers tackle Shon Coleman’s injury expected to be season-ending, per report

Aug 10, 2019 at 10:14 PM--


San Francisco 49ers tackle Shon Coleman went down early during Saturday night's preseason opener against the Dallas Cowboys with what looked like a serious injury to his lower right leg. The offensive lineman was carted off the field with an air cast placed over his leg.

The 49ers later reported the injury as "an ankle injury" and Coleman was ruled out for the remainder of the game. General manager John Lynch didn't sound too optimistic about Coleman's condition while speaking with Greg Papa and Tim Ryan during the broadcast.

Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports that Coleman will receive an MRI tomorrow but the injury is already believed to be a season-ender.


Shanahan was asked after the game if he had any more information on the injury.

"No," he responded. "I saw what you guys saw, though. It looked serious but I don't know yet."

Coleman was competing for the swing tackle job behind starters Joe Staley and Mike McGlinchey. San Francisco could make a move before the start of the season to acquire another tackle. It is also worth noting that the 49ers are No. 2 in priority when it comes to claiming players off waivers.

The 49ers traded a 2019 seventh-round pick to the Cleveland Browns for Coleman on August 31, 2018.

The San Francisco 49ers sound like they really want to take some of the pressure off of their hopefully-soon-to-be-extended All-Pro tight end, George Kittle. Head coach Kyle Shanahan could also be hoping to draw up some plays that utilize two tight ends at once on the football field. "In addition to inking Kittle to a bigger contract, the team's plan at tight end this offseason involved finding an accomplished backup who could relieve Kittle for stretches of a game," wrote Matt Barrows of The Athletic.
