The 49ers promoted RB Jeff Wilson Jr. to the active roster from the practice squad. To make room, the team waived rookie TE Kaden Smith. Wilson offers depth behind Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert with Tevin Coleman (ankle) out Sunday. The Niners hope to bring Smith back to the practice squad when and if he clears waivers.

There was a short viewing period for media for today's 49ers practice. But a nice touch on the music as DJ Nick Kray opened with St. Louis' very own Chingy and the hip hop classic "Holidae Inn" circa 2003. (Featuring Ludacris and Snoop, of course). The Niners spent the week at a Holiday Inn in Youngstown-Boardman, Ohio.

49ers RB Coleman (ankle) out at least a week

The biggest takeaway for the 49ers on Sunday? Takeaways. Four, to be precise. The Niners listened all offseason as they were reminded of their futility in the game's most important statistical category in 2018 when they set league records for fewest turnovers created (seven) and interceptions (two). Against the Bucs, they came up with three picks -- including two returned for touchdowns -- and a fumble recovery. On a day when they won by 14 points, those two scores provided the difference and gave Niners coach Kyle Shanahan his first winning record in season since he took over in 2017. "It was huge," Shanahan said. "It's good to have that monkey off your back a little bit."

PI rule critic Sherman on wrong end of challenge

Richard Sherman, who has been a vocal opponent of the new rule allowing teams to challenge pass interference calls and non-calls, was on the wrong end of one on Sunday.

49ers CB Richard Sherman comes up with his first interception as a member of the team and the first pick by a Niners corner since the 2017 season. He returned it 25 yards for a touchdown to give San Francisco a 20-7 lead in the third quarter. That's the second Niners interception of the game, which matches their total interceptions from all of last season.

49ers RB Tevin Coleman suffered an ankle injury and has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's game against Tampa Bay. Could be an ominous sign that he was ruled out so quickly. Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert will handle duties the rest of today.
