The 49ers are dealing with quite a few injuries after their Week 8 lo s to the Seahawks, and that includes starting QB Jimmy Garoppolo and recently activated RB Tevin Coleman.

He has been placed onIR and will mi s at least the next three games.Garoppolo left the 49ers' lo s to the Seahawks after suffering an apparent injury in the third quarter. Garoppolo came off the field on multiple occasions and headed back to the locker Zach Pascal Jersey room. He didn't return to action.Garoppolo has dealt with an ankle injury at times this season, so he could have aggravated that injury. Either way, his status for the 49ers' Thursday Night Football game against the Packers looks bleak given how bad he looked on the field Sunday and how heavily he was limping to the locker room. Perhaps he'll surprise and be active, but if he did re-injure his ankle, the 49ers will probably keep him out to ensure he doesn't make it worse.If Garoppolo has to mi s time, Nick Mullens will once again be the starter. Mullens shouldn't be considered anything more than an option for two-QB and Superflex leagues even against a mediocre Packers defense. San Francisco's pa s-catchers will be slightly downgraded with Mullens in at QB, but the volume available for Brandon Aiyuk and Kendrick Bourne with George Kittle (ankle) questionable still will make them viable WR3/flex plays.WEEK 9 FANTASY:| |Darrell Matt Ryan Jersey Henderson injury updateHenderson exited the Rams lo s to the Dolphins after suffering a thigh injury right before halftime. He didn't return, and it's unclear just how severe his injury might be.The Rams are on bye in Week 9, so unle s Henderson's injury is of the severe variety, he shouldn't be out too long. That said, if he does mi s any action, Malcolm Brown and Cam Akers will split carries in the LA backfield. Brown has consistently seen carries all season, so he would likely be the lead back and should certainly be stashed as a potential RB2/flex play if he's available on waivers. Even if Henderson does return, Brown is a fine handcuff to own.WEEK 9 PPR RANKINGS: | | | | | Tevin Coleman injury updateUPDATE:Coleman has already been ruled "out" for Week 9.Coleman was activated from IR after Alec Pierce Jersey mi sing five weekswith a knee sprain, but his return didn't last too long. Near the end of the first quarter, Coleman left the game with a knee injury and didn't return. It's po sible he could have aggravated his previous injury.Even NFL Indianapolis Colts Jersey if Coleman didn't re-injure his balky knee, it's hard to imagine him playing on a short week for the 49ers. That will leave the team with just two healthy running backs, JaMycal Hasty and Jerick McKinnon. Considering that McKinnon is dealing with "tired legs,"Hasty has a legitimate shot to handle 20-plustouches against a Packers defense that was just gashed by Dalvin Cook. He's a must-add in all fantasy formats ahead of Thursday Night Football.
