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."
