Coleman, who has been in the NFL since 2015, could potentially be San Francisco’s No. 2 running back in the game against the Philadelphia Eagles, with a trip to the Super Bowl on the line. Elijah Mitchell, the 49ers’ No. 2 running back behind Christian McCaffrey, has been dealing with a groin injury.
In regular-season play, Coleman made 5 appearances for the 49ers. He recorded carries in just 2 games, rushing 12 times for 26 yards and a touchdown.
The NFC Championship Game is set for 3 p.m. ET. We’ll see if Coleman contributes for the 49ers.
