49ers RB Tevin Coleman listed as non-participant in practice on Wednesday
The San Francisco 49ers did not practice on Wednesday, but because they had to produce an injury report, they listed running back Tevin Coleman as a non-participant due to a dislocated shoulder, per Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk.
Coleman injured his shoulder during the second quarter of his team’s NFC Championship Game win over the Green Bay Packers this past Sunday and was carted off the field. He carried the ball six times for 21 yards before exiting.
In 14 games during the regular season, Coleman rushed for 544 yards and six touchdowns while averaging four yards per carry. In addition, he logged 21 catches for 180 yards and a score.
The 26-year-old, who played his collegiate football at Indiana University, was originally selected by the Atlanta Falcons in the third round (73rd pick overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft.
He appeared in 12 contests during his rookie campaign, finishing with 392 yards while reaching the end zone once as a rusher. The following year, Coleman’s role grew, as he totaled 520 yards and eight touchdowns on the ground, catching 31 passes for 421 yards and three scores.
Coleman posted similar numbers in 2017, registering 628 yards and five scores, and in 2018, the Tinley Park, Il. native broke out, recording 800 yards and four touchdowns while averaging 4.8 yards per attempt. He added 32 grabs for 276 yards and five scores.
His impressive 2018 campaign resulted in Coleman landing a four-year deal with the 49ers last offseason.
San Francisco won 13 games this year, winning the NFC West and notching a first-round bye. It will take on the Kansas City Chiefs in the Super Bowl on Feb. 2.
