49ers’ Tevin Coleman carted off the field with shoulder injury
The good news is that the surging San Francisco 49ers currently lead the always dangerous Green Bay Packers by the score off 17-0 early on in this year’s NFC Championship Game. However, the bad news is that starting 49ers running back Tevin Coleman was carted off the field due to a seemingly significant shoulder injury.
While obviously unable to use his injured arm, Coleman did manage to give the crowd a quick wave with his other arm in order to signify that he was at least in some pretty good spirits on his way to the locker room area. As a result of suffering an injured shoulder, Coleman has now officially been listed as questionable to return against the Packers.
Although no official word regarding the specifics of such a setback has been released by the team at the present moment, the 49ers training staff could be seen holding Coleman’s elbow in place as if he may have dislocated his shoulder.

With the 49ers already up 17-0 and a few weeks between now and the Super Bowl, it is highly unlikely that Coleman will return to the team’s NFC clash against the Packers. Whether or not the injury is significant enough for him to remain on the sideline, it remains to be seen as to whether the 49ers even take a chance in risking further injury.
In addition to Coleman, the 49ers have leaned on the tandem of Raheem Mostert and Matt Breida at the running back position all season long.
