49ers running back Tevin Coleman has been carted off the field in the second quarter of the NFC championship game with a right shoulder injury.

Coleman — drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in 2015 — came up hurt at the end of a 4-yard run and left the game at the 9:32 mark of the second quarter Sunday against the Green Bay Packers after being tackled by safety Adrian Amos. San Francisco scored a touchdown the next play to take a 17-0 lead, a 9-yard run by Raheem Mostert for his TD rush of the game.

Coleman, who hurt his elbow last week in a win over Minnesota but ran for 105 yards and two scores, had six rushes for 21 yards when he left. The team said he was questionable to return.

Coleman played in 58 games and made 14 starts over his first four seasons in Atlanta. He signed with San Francisco as a free agent last offseason.
