49ers’ Tevin Coleman optimistic he will be ready for Super Bowl LIV vs. Chiefs

Jan 28, 2020 at 1:22 PM--


San Francisco 49ers running back Tevin Coleman suffered a painful dislocated shoulder during the NFC Championship Game victory over the Green Bay Packers. It was the team's most significant injury from the game, so naturally, it was going to be a storyline heading into Super Bowl LIV against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Coleman was never ruled out of potentially playing in the NFL championship game, and having two weeks to recover before kickoff helps, too.

The running back is optimistic that he will play against the Chiefs on Sunday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

"It does sound like he's going to be practicing (this week)," Rapoport reported on Tuesday. "Recently, he was in a non-contact jersey. Certainly, a good situation for the 49ers."

Rapoport spoke with Coleman on Monday night, and the running back said he would do nothing but rehab leading up to the Super Bowl.

"Obviously, there is a sort of minimized risk of re-injury," Rapoport added. "If there is anything that needs to be addressed, it will be after the season, but there is some optimism that he'll be able to play in the Super Bowl."

Several San Francisco 49ers players took part in this week's State of the Franchise event. One of the topics of conversation surrounded the possibility of a Super Bowl hangover. As tough as it is for a Super Bowl champion to claw its way back to the mountaintop, it is even tougher for the runner-up. All too often, that second-place team will regress the next season, but 49ers players don't see that happening with this squad. Why is that? What makes this 49ers team so different from past Super Bowl runner-ups? What makes its players think that they can get back and win it all, this time? "I think it's the guys in our building and the leadership that we have," responded offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey during the conversation with Keiana Martin and Greg Papa. "It's

It's Super Bowl or bust for the San Francisco 49ers, as it probably should be. That's what the team's head coach, Kyle Shanahan, is thinking. That's what his players are thinking. Shanahan recently spoke with team radio voice Greg Papa for the 49ers' State of the Franchise event and shared exactly what his expectations are for the upcoming season. "I know we were good enough to win that Super Bowl, and we didn't," Shanahan said. "And that's something we've got to live with. And that's why the state of the franchise, right now, is we've got to get right back to that moment (in the Super Bowl). We've got to get right back to that fourth quarter, and get to have a lead, and we've got to finish the job." Those comments irked Mike Florio of Pro Football
