He’s having tests today (in Youngstown, OH, where the team is staying) to determine the nature of the sprain.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 9, 2019With the loss of Coleman, the 49ers will start Matt Breida and have Raheem Mostert share some of those carries. It’s an extra blow for San Francisco, which already lost running back Jerick McKinnon to a knee injury that required surgery. Another option for the Niners is to activate Jeff Wilson from the practice squad to back up Breida and Mostert.
