The final diagnosis on 49ers running back Tevin Coleman is a dislocated shoulder according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic.
Coleman suffered the injury in the first half of the 49ers rout over the Green Bay Packers Sunday and had to be carted off the field but eventually returned to the sideline with his arm in a sling. Coach Kyle Shanahan said Coleman had a “Lethal Weapon” type of dislocation, meaning it got it popped back in and has a chance to play in the Super Bowl in 13 days. Overall, it is good news for the team but Shanahan cautioned that the final diagnostic images are not yet in.
Raheem Mostert earned as much work as he can handle following his massive performance against Green Bay, but Coleman could perhaps be in line for a few touches if he is able to suit up.
