Kyle Shanahan hopes Tevin Coleman returns this week as 49ers endure more injuries

Oct 26, 2020 at 4:26 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers suffered yet another injury at running back. Jeff Wilson Jr. is headed to injured reserve this week after suffering a high-ankle sprain on Sunday against the New England Patriots. That came after the running back rushed for a career-high 112 yards through three quarters of play.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked today if Tevin Coleman could return this week. The veteran running back has been on injured reserve with a knee injury since September 26.

"I hope so," Shanahan responded. "I'm not sure yet, though. I mean, I know he can't go today. I'd be surprised if he gets out there fully for Wednesday, but I think that will be a late-end-of-the-week decision."

Coleman is in his second year with San Francisco and rushed for 30 yards on 18 carries through two games this season. He also has three receptions for 34 yards.

The 49ers are also without running back Raheem Mostert, who was placed on injured reserve on Saturday due to a high-ankle sprain suffered during the team's Week 6 victory over the Los Angeles Rams.

The remaining healthy running backs on the active roster are Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty. The team also has Austin Walter on the practice squad.

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan expects DeMeco Ryans to gamble more than Robert Saleh

When the 49ers line up on defense this season under new coordinator DeMeco Ryans, they might be taking more risks than they did over the past four seasons under the guidance of previous coordinator Robert Saleh. Saleh earned a reputation as one of the league's top defensive coordinators during his time with the 49ers, which he turned into his new opportunity as head coach of the New York Jets. But according to 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, Saleh liked to play it safe as a coordinator, which is something that could change this season now that Ryans is in charge. "I think you'll see DeMeco's personality come out a little bit more," Shanahan told Tim Kawakami of The Athletic



Kyle Shanahan discusses having a dual-threat quarterback in 49ers rookie Trey Lance

Head coach Kyle Shanahan has a lot of confidence in quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's ability to lead the San Francisco 49ers offense. That confidence may waver when it comes to depending on his veteran passer to be available for the majority of the season. That, not his skill set, led Shanahan and the 49ers to seek another quarterback in the draft. In January, Shanahan fell in love with the idea of acquiring Trey Lance. He liked several of this year's rookie quarterbacks, but it was the North Dakota State product who pushed him to want to trade up from No. 12 overall. So San Francisco did exactly that, moving up to No. 3 to select Lance, a prospect with little experience but huge upside. Most assume that it is Lance's athletic ability that drew Shanahan to the



George Kittle explains why Kyle Shanahan, 49ers fans should be excited about the 2021 season

George Kittle is confident that the San Francisco 49ers will rebound from last season's injury-plagued six-win campaign. It wasn't long ago that the team was in the Super Bowl, and much of that roster remains intact. Most feel that the Niners' 2019 season was an aberration and that a return to the playoffs is in store for this year's squad. Kittle joined Good Morning Football today and shared why the media should not overlook the 2021 49ers. "I don't know if you guys saw this, but Nick Bosa is coming back, and we re-signed Trent Williams," Kittle explained. "So those two guys are pretty good at football, from what I remember. They're pretty decent. And on the opposite side of Nick Bosa, you've got Dee Ford, you've got Arik Armstead." Bosa is



Kyle Shanahan hoping 49ers' COVID-19 vaccination numbers improve

The state of California lifted several of its COVID-19-related restrictions today. Masks are no longer required if you are vaccinated. The capacity limitations are gone, as are county tier updates, which provided information on exposure levels. Of course, businesses are still allowed to set their own guidelines. However, for the most part, the state is on a path back to normalcy. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has stated that he expects stadiums to be filled with fans during the upcoming season. As of last week, assistant coaches from at least four NFL teams refused to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. Should that stand, it means they will lose their Tier 1 access, banning them from the
