Tevin Coleman ruled out in Week 8 after knee injury in first quarter

49ers RB Tevin Coleman hasn’t been seen since the 5:42 mark in the first quarter. It’s not entirely clear what’s up.

Post-game update: Coleman re-injured the same knee that cost him the past month, per Kyle Shanahan. He seems unlikely to play on the short TNF turnaround this week against the Packers.

UPDATE: The 49ers have downgraded Coleman to OUT due to his knee injury.

UPDATE: The 49ers announced Tevin Coleman is questionable to return to the game with a knee injury.

The San Francisco 49ers opened Week 8 with Tevin Coleman as their first back getting touches, but he has not appeared in the game since the 5:42 mark. He had three carries for 20 yards but JaMycal Hasty has gotten all the work since then. Hasty has 11 carries for 25 yards and a touchdown as halftime approaches.

Coleman had been out since suffering an MCL injury in Week 2. The team placed him on injured reserve and activated him this weekend for their matchup against the Seahawks. The team has not made an injury announcement at this point but something would appear to be up with Coleman.
