Tevin Coleman Misses Practice Thursday, Super Bowl Status Unknown

  • Tevin Coleman suffered a dislocated shoulder in the NFC Championship game against the Packers
  • Coleman missed practice on Thursday due to the shoulder injury.
  • It has not been confirmed whether he will be playing in Super Bowl 54.

MIAMI - In unfortunate news, San Francisco running back Tevin Coleman missed practice on Thursday. Coleman suffered a dislocated shoulder during the NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers. Although Coleman did not participate in the practice, he was running on the side of the field with a football.

It appears the  49ers are being cautious with him in the hope to have him ready to face off against the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 54. Wide receiver Dante Pettis joined Coleman as the only player to miss Thursday’s practice.

Pettis was out with an illness.

49ers Rushing Yards

Although known for their defense, the 49ers have a solid offense as well with an impressive running game. This season, the Niners totaled 2,305 total rushing yards with 23 touchdowns off running plays.

Tevin Coleman is responsible for 544 of those yards and six of those touchdowns.

This postseason alone Coleman, rushed for 126 yards on 28 attempts, boasting two touchdowns in the process. The 49ers offense will surely miss him if he doesn’t recover quickly from his shoulder injury and is forced to sit out of Super Bowl 54.

Aside from Coleman’s shoulder, the 49ers are also dealing with LB Kwon Alexander’s pectoral injury, LB Dre Greenlaw’s ankle, safety Jaquiski Tartt's rib injury, and DE Dee Ford’s quadriceps and hamstring injuries.

Recovery Timeline On Injuries For Coleman

It can range anywhere from six weeks to three months for someone to fully recover from a dislocated shoulder. However, it takes just about two weeks for someone to gain full functionality.

There will be some soreness, but with over a week to recover, it is possible for Coleman to hit the field come Super Bowl Sunday.

Current odds have the Kansas City Chiefs as the favorite on the money line with the Chiefs at -125 to the 49ers +105. With the over-under currently at 55 points, the Super Bowl odds may change depending on if Coleman is announced to be playing or not.

Super Bowl 54 kicks off Sunday, February 2 at 6 p.m. EST.
