49ers' Tevin Coleman's goes to walk-through, looks to play in Super Bowl

SANTA CLARA -- Running back Tevin Coleman took part in the 49ers' walk through on Friday but did not practice.

Coach Kyle Shanahan said the results of Coleman's MRI examination earlier this week was "positive," and the 49ers appear confident Tevin Coleman will be available when the club takes the field for Super Bowl LIV.

However, Coleman was still unable to practice on Friday, just five days after sustaining a dislocated right shoulder in the 49ers’ victory over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game.

Coleman started 11 of the 14 regular-season games in which he appeared. On the season, Coleman gained 544 yards and six touchdowns with a 4.0 average. He caught 21 passes for 180 yards and one touchdown.

He Coleman played a huge role in the 49ers’ 27-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings in the divisional round of the NFC playoffs with 105 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 22 attempts.

Coleman played just eight snaps against the Packers on Sunday. He carried six times for 21 yards before leaving with the shoulder injury when he reached out to brace his fall upon being tripped up on a second-quarter running play.

Warriors' Draymond Green won't be rooting for 49ers in Super Bowl 54


Warriors' Draymond Green won't be rooting for 49ers in Super Bowl 54

You can say a lot of things about Warriors forward Draymond Green. But 49ers fan is not among them.

After Friday's shootaround ahead of a matchup with the Indiana Pacers at Chase Center, Green was asked who he's rooting for in Super Bowl LIV.

"It's definitely good to see the Niners having the success they're having," Green said to reporters. "Obviously for me, my brother is on Kansas City, Frank Clark, so I'm definitely rooting for him to get a Super Bowl. No disrespect to the Niners."

Green went on to explain that he's a Steelers fan, as he liked the black and gold color scheme during his younger days.

Even as his team has moved its headquarters into San Francisco, Green isn't going to pick against one of his close friends.

NFL rumors: 49ers' Super Bowl 54 parade will take place in San Francisco

NFL rumors: 49ers' Super Bowl 54 parade will take place in San Francisco

If the confetti falls on the 49ers in Miami, there will be a party shortly thereafter in the Bay Area.

Some have wondered where the 49ers would hold their championship parade should they defeat the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV. Would it be in San Francisco? What about Santa Clara where the 49ers currently play their home games?

Well, the answer apparently is San Francisco, The San Francisco Chronicle's Scott Ostler.

“Well, I’m not inside of the 49ers’ chambers, but the time that I was near the doorway, I heard positive discussions, in which I am proud to say that (a parade) will be right here in our town. The only question is, how in the hell do we pay for it?” former San Francisco mayor Willie Brown, who has an unofficial role in the parade planning, told Ostler.

The championship parade would run down Market Street, a source told Ostler.

As for Santa Clara, Brown brushed that idea off.

“And besides that,” Brown said, “there’s no way you can have a parade in Santa Clara. What do they have, one shopping mall?”

The 49ers have a tall task in front of them. Reigning NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes has been nearly unstoppable when healthy this season and will present a unique challenge to a 49ers defense that has tormented a majority of the quarterbacks they have faced this season. The 49ers have the defensive personnel to give Mahomes fits, but the Chiefs' next-level speed will be something the Niners haven't faced this season.

It will be strength on strength in Miami, with a parade (perhaps) in The City awaiting the Niners should they take care of business.
