The 49ers brought back an old friend, Tevin Coleman, who’ll be elevated from the practice squad for Week 4’s primetime showdown against the Rams.

The San Francisco 49ers are going to party like it’s 2019 back when veteran running back Tevin Coleman was the starter in what head coach Kyle Shanahan deployed as a two-heading rushing attack with fellow tailback Raheem Mostert.

Now, it’s Week 4 of the 2022 season, and Coleman is poised to make his Niners debut this go-around in the Monday Night Football Matchup against the visiting Los Angeles Rams.

Coleman, whom San Francisco signed to the practice squad earlier this year, is going to get elevated to the 53-man roster in time for kickoff, as multiple news outlets reported:

Coleman also played eight games with San Francisco in 2020 before spending 2021 with the New York Jets.

With the 49ers missing injured rookie Tyrion Davis-Price and the starter, Elijah Mitchell, Coleman is expected to work in tandem with both Jeff Wilson Jr. and undrafted rookie Jordan Mason out of the backfield, while wide receiver Deebo Samuel is expected to see carries in his hybrid “wide back” role.

49ers inactives for Week 4 Monday Night Football vs. Rams

The Niners elected to sign veteran wide receiver Willie Snead to the 53-man roster for Monday’s game, which was in the wake of missing rookie wideout Danny Gray to a hip injury.

Gray is among those whom San Francisco will designate as inactive for Week 4:

  • WR Danny Gray
  • DT Javon Kinlaw
  • S Tarvarius Moore
  • OT Trent Williams
  • OL Nick Zakelj
  • RB Ty Davis-Price
  • TE Tyler Kroft

Kinlaw is dealing with a flare-up in his knee, and there was footage of him trying to work out prior to the game, ultimately relegated to the inactive list, unfortunately.

However, fellow defensive tackle Arik Armstead (foot), who missed Week 3 against the Denver Broncos, appears to be ready to go.

San Francisco will kick off against LA on Monday night at 8:15 p.m. ET from Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara.
