Trey Sermon, RB (SF)

Sprained ankle to result in absence

Sermon has been diagnosed with an ankle sprain, and coach Kyle Shanahan said that the rookie third-round pick could land on injured reserve, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Sermon left Sunday's eventual win over the Vikings due to a right ankle injury and was unable to return. Prior to his departure, he managed to play four snaps on special teams but none on offense as Elijah Mitchell (finger) was back in the fold following a one-game absence. Behind Mitchell, expect Jeff Wilson to handle the bulk of the backfield work that lingers while Sermon is sidelined.
