Hasty (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.
Analysis: This was to be expected given Hasty suffered a high ankle sprain which generally entails a multi-week recovery timetable. The 49ers are banged up at running back with Hasty, Jeff Wilson (knee) and Raheem Mostert (knee) all unavailable while Elijah Mitchell (shoulder) is considered highly doubtful. The carnage leaves Trey Sermon at the top of the depth chart with recent signees Jacques Patrick and Trenton Cannon as backups.

Driskel reverted to the Texans' practice squad Friday.
Analysis: Driskel was elevated from Houston's practice squad to serve as depth at quarterback with Tyrod Taylor (hamstring) sidelined Thursday. Although he didn't appear in Thursday's loss to the Panthers, he'll be an option to rejoin the active roster while Taylor remains on injured reserve.

Coleman (illness) will miss Sunday's game in Denver, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Coleman practiced fully Friday, but the non-COVID illness will keep him out of the game. The veteran running back was starting to get phased out of the Jets' offense in Week 2, anyway. Michael Carter and Ty Johnson split most of the carries in that one and should work in a similar timeshare once again.

Sermon is out of the concussion protocol and likely will serve as the 49ers' starting running back Sunday night against the Packers, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: The Friday injury report lists Elijah Mitchell (calf) as doubtful and JaMycal Hasty (knee) as out, while Sermon avoids a game designation altogether. The rookie thus appears ticketed for the lead backfield role in an offense with excellent coaching and blocking, considering the other healthy RBs are Trenton Cannon (primarily a special teams player) and Jacques Patrick (a 2020 UDFA who was signed Tuesday). Of course, Sermon hasn't done much to inspire confidence, first slipping down the depth chart and then suffering an injury on his first NFL carry. No matter, the third-round pick has a nice opportunity, with a big night potentially putting him ahead of Mitchell even beyond Week 3.

Sermon (concussion) shed his non-contact jersey for Friday's practice, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: It's just a walkthrough, but this supports GM John Lynch's statement Friday morning when he said Sermon was trending in the right direction for Sunday's game against the Packers. Lynch was less optimistic about Elijah Mitchell, who returned to practice Friday after missing Wednesday and Thursday with a shoulder injury. It's possible both backs end up listed as questionable this weekend.
