14 Takeaways from 49ers 31-17 Week 1 Victory Over...

9. Tevin Coleman was ruled out with an ankle injury by the start of the second half. The running back was limited to six carries for 23 yards to go along with two receptions for 33 yards. There is no word yet on the severity of Coleman’s injury, however it will be something to monitor in the coming days. The 49ers were able to stash second-year back Jeff Wilson Jr. on the team’s practice squad and could be a candidate to be activated to the team’s 53-man roster in Week 2.

“We’ll have to get X-rays and we’ll see after this game,” Shanahan said. “We love Jeff who’s on the practice squad. Jeff’s a great player, we’ll see what’s up with Tevin and how long he will be out.”

10. K’Waun Williams and Matt Breida both suffered hydration issues during Sunday’s contest. Sunday’s contest reached highs of 93 degrees with around 65 percent humidity. Breida and Mostert both returned shortly after being evaluated in the medical tent.

11. Nick Bosa recorded the first sack of his young NFL career. Bosa came off of the edge and into Winston, who was pressured from the other side by Dee Ford. Bosa had a missed opportunity in the first quarter when Winston side stepped the rookie, barely dodging the hit.

“From what I saw (Bosa and Ford) looked good,” Shanahan said. “I know they weren’t out there all the time. I saw them make a few plays. Every time I looked up it seemed like when Bosa was in he got back there. Missed Jameis on a couple that I saw, but he’s pretty good at that too. He’s done that to some pretty good players. I was really happy with how they got into the backfield. Not just them two the whole d-line.”
