Tevin Coleman back at practice for a second straight day

49ers running back Tevin Coleman continues getting work in as he wraps up rehab on his high ankle sprain. Might he play on Monday Night Football? We break down the fantasy implications and questions.

The San Francisco 49ers wrapped up their second practice session of Week 5, and running back Tevin Coleman appears to be progressing well. Coleman was back at practice for the second straight day, according to 49ers reporter Cam Inman, as the team prepares for Monday Night Football against the Cleveland Browns.

Coleman suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 1, and this week marks his first time back in practice. Matt Breida has started in his place, with Raheem Mostert serving as a complement and Jeff Wilson serving as a goal line back.

The 49ers have one more day of practice on Saturday, and then play on Monday. It’s safe to say Coleman is going to be listed as questionable and a game-time decision. My gut says he plays, but given it’s the Monday game, owners will be left scrambling if he does not play.

That is critical to keep in mind, but also the fact that this becomes a busy backfield. Even if Coleman slots right back in as the No. 1 back, Breida and Mostert have both earned additional work. Wilson is likely the one who loses out, but even without him, it becomes a significant platoon situation.
