Seahawks also banged up at running back heading into Week 8 clash with 49ers

Oct 27, 2020 at 6:42 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers aren't the only team that will enter Week 8 banged up at running back. Their opponent, the Seattle Seahawks, is also dealing with issues at the position.

The 49ers will be without featured back Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr. Wilson rushed for a career-high 112 yards during Sunday's win over the New England Patriots before suffering a high-ankle sprain in the third quarter. He will join Mostert, who coincidentally sustained the same injury a week earlier, on injured reserve.

San Francisco could get back Tevin Coleman this week. At least, head coach Kyle Shanahan remains optimistic about the veteran rusher's return.

"I hope so," Shanahan said on Monday. "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."

Meanwhile, Seahawks running back Chris Carson is week-to-week with a mid-foot sprain. He will miss some time. Backups Carlos Hyde, a former Niner, and third-down back Travis Homer also emerged banged up from Sunday night's overtime loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Hyde is dealing with a hamstring issue and was sidelined late in the game. Homer suffered a knee contusion. The injuries forced Seattle to turn to fourth-string rookie DeeJay Dallas in overtime.

"So we have some things that we can do if we need to," Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said on Monday. "We're going to take it one day at a time and see if our guys can get back in who can get back, with a couple of creative thoughts going forward that will keep in-house for now."

The 49ers (4-3) and Seahawks (5-1) are set to kick off from CenturyLink Field on Sunday at 1:25 p.m. PT.

The San Francisco 49ers didn't play this past weekend but look to kick off the season's final six games with a win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. The team is also hoping to emerge from its bye week healthier, getting several key players back. "If we can use this bye week to help us get healthier," head coach Kyle Shanahan said last week, "we can come back and play a little bit better football from it because I do feel we've got the guys in our building, and some guys coming back. That does give us a chance in every game." Shanahan hopes to get cornerback Richard Sherman, wide receiver Deebo Samuel, and running backs Raheem Mostert and Tevin Colman back
