San Francisco 49ers running back Tevin Coleman dislocated his right shoulder Sunday in the NFC Championship Game, but he hasn’t been ruled out of the Super Bowl.
Niners coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday the team is waiting on MRI results to determine the severity of the injury. The Super Bowl against the Kansas City Chiefs is on Feb. 2.

Coleman departed in the second quarter of Sunday’s 37-20 trouncing of the Green Bay Packers. He carried six times for 21 yards. Coleman’s injury opened the door for Raheem Mostert to go from splitting carries to being a one-man show. Mostert carried 29 times for 220 yards and four touchdowns.
