49ers RB Coleman exits with knee injury

San Francisco 49ers running back Tevin Coleman sustained a knee injury during the first quarter of Sunday’s game in Seattle and was questionable to return.

Coleman, who was just activated off injured reserve on Saturday, started the game and rushed three times for 20 yards in his first appearance since spraining his knee in Week 2.

He left the game after a 12-yard run with 5:42 remaining in the opening quarter.

The 49ers were already shorthanded in the backfield with Jeff Wilson and Raheem Mostert nursing injuries.

Undrafted rookie JaMycal Hasty replaced Coleman and scored his first NFL touchdown, a 1-yard run that gave the 49ers a 7-6 lead over the Seahawks midway through the second quarter.

Coleman, 27, gained 724 yards from scrimmage and scored seven TDs in his first season with San Francisco in 2019.

He rushed for 2,340 yards and 18 touchdowns and caught 92 passes for 1,010 yards and 11 scores in four seasons with the Falcons (2015-18).
