49ers tackle Shon Coleman suffered fractured fibula and dislocated ankle, per reports

Aug 11, 2019 at 8:58 AM--

An MRI on Sunday revealed that San Francisco 49ers tackle Shon Coleman suffered a dislocated ankle and will undergo several months of recovery, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. He will likely land on season-ending injured reserve.

Update: Coleman also suffered a fractured fibula and had surgery on Sunday morning, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Coleman went down early during Saturday night's preseason opener against the Dallas Cowboys and was carted off the field with an air cast placed over his leg. General manager John Lynch didn't sound optimistic about the injury while speaking with Greg Papa and Tim Ryan during the broadcast. Head coach Kyle Shanahan also sounded equally discouraged after the game but didn't have a report on the severity of the injury yet.

Matt Barrows of The Athletic later reported that the injury was feared to be season-ending.

Coleman was entering his fourth NFL season and second with the 49ers. San Francisco traded a 2019 seventh-round pick to the Cleveland Browns for the offensive lineman on August 31, 2018. Coleman was expected to be the 49ers' swing tackle behind starters Joe Staley and Mike McGlinchey.

The San Francisco 49ers are hoping to sign tight end George Kittle to a long-term extension. The two sides don't sound as though they are very close in the negotiation process, however. NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported earlier this week that the 49ers and Kittle's camp are not "particularly close on anything." Mike Silver of NFL Network seems to be hearing the same thing and on Friday provided an update on Kittle's contract situation. "There remains a pretty significant disconnect philosophically between the 49ers and George Kittle's camp.

$198.2 million. That's the salary cap figure that NFL decision-makers have been working with since the limit was set in March. Actually, they had been working with a number in that realm since long before that, as teams figured the salary cap would reach close to $200 million in 2020. With so much uncertainty heading into the upcoming season, as the league pushes forward to play amidst a pandemic, NFL owners are pushing for a lower salary cap number, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. No, not just beyond this year. Including 2020. Owners are reportedly proposing to lower the salary cap for this season and 2021 to partially offset any losses due to the potential (and likely) absence of fans within stadiums. Such a move could create
