The San Francisco 49ers are making several big roster decisions ahead of Monday Night Football vs. the Los Angeles Rams. 

The NFC West franchise is elevating running back Tevin Coleman, a Kyle Shanahan favorite, from the practice squad to active roster. 

The 49ers are also signing veteran wide receive Willie Snead to the active roster for tonight's game. 

Both players should see the field often, particularly Coleman. 

"The #49ers signed veteran WR Willie Snead to the active roster and elevated RB Tevin Coleman and WR Malik Turner for tonight's game against the #Rams. They also placed LB Azeez Al-Shaair on injured reserve. He's out at least four games," said Tom Pelissero.

Tevin Coleman will split carries with both Jeff Wilson and Deebo Samuel. The team's starting running back, Elijah Mitchell, is out with a knee injury. 

The 49ers are off to a 1-2 start to the 2022 season, but hope to turn a corner tonight vs. the Rams. 

Catch the big game on ESPN, ESPN2 or ABC tonight at 8:15 p.m. ET.
