49ers Announce Major Injury Update Before Super Bowl
The 49ers announced a major injury update before the Super Bowl.
Fresh off a victory in the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers, San Francisco made an unfortunate revelation.
In the Packers game, running back Tevin Coleman suffered an injury to his shoulder that rendered him unable to even properly walk off the field. He did not return to the game.
On Monday, Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan announced Coleman had suffered a dislocated shoulder.
While the severity of the injury remains unclear, Shanahan insisted that there is a chance that Coleman will play in the Super Bowl against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Shanahan says RB Tevin Coleman has a dislocated shoulder. Chance he plays in the Super Bowl.

Whereas Raheem Mostert’s insane game propelled San Francisco to victory in the NFC title game, there is no guarantee that the same will happen versus Kansas City.
As such, getting Coleman back is a priority.
Mostert amassed 220 yards and four scores against the Packers this past weekend.
It remains to be seen if he can put forth a comparable effort against the Chiefs if it so happens that Coleman cannot return in time.
