Wilson (ankle) is listed as active Sunday versus the Rams.
EDGE Analysis
Making his first appearance since Oct. 25 at New England, Wilson may factor into the 49ers backfield with Tevin Coleman (knee) unavailable. That said, Raheem Mostert also was activated from IR on Saturday, so Wilson could play second or even third fiddle with Jerick McKinnon on hand.

Wilson (ankle) was activated from injured reserve Saturday and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
EDGE Analysis
Raheem Mostert (ankle) was also activated and handed a questionable designation for Week 12. Meanwhile, Tevin Coleman (knee) has been ruled out. Jerick McKinnon is the only fully healthy, experienced running back heading into Sunday's game. It's a fool's errand to project how the backfield reps will be divvied up, but Wilson may be the odd man out if Mostert is at 100 percent.

Wilson (ankle) is slated to be activated from IR prior to Sunday's road game versus the Rams, as coach Kyle Shanahan considers the running back questionable to suit up, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
With Tevin Coleman (knee) ruled out for Week 12, the 49ers are calling in reinforcements in the form of Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Wilson. Both running backs are coming off multi-week recoveries, and Wilson himself hasn't suited up since Week 7. If Wilson is active Sunday, he may have to contend with Mostert for touches, though Jerick McKinnon could lead the backfield as the only consistently healthy San Francisco running back this season.

Coach Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday that Wilson (ankle) is day-to-day, Chris Biderman of The Sacramento Bee reports.
EDGE Analysis
Wilson suffered a sprained ankle in Week 7 against the Patriots and sat out three games as a result. The 25-year-old running back was designated to return from IR on Tuesday, opening the 21-day window to be activated. Depending on how his ankle recovers to a week of practice, Wilson could play in this Sunday's game against the Rams. His role depends on the health of the other backs, as Tevin Coleman (knee), Jerick McKinnon (neck) and Raheem Mostert (knee) all carry injury tags at this time.

The 49ers designated Wilson (ankle) to return from injured reserve Tuesday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
EDGE Analysis
San Francisco will have 21 days to evaluate Wilson for a return to the 53-man roster. Before being moved to IR due to the sprained ankle, Wilson turned in his best game as a pro in the 49ers' Week 7 win over New England, rumbling 17 times for 112 yards and three scores while catching two passes for eight yards. Even if he proves healthy in practice, Wilson may have a tough time reclaiming a consistent role out of the backfield, as top option Raheem Mostert (ankle) was also designated to return from IR on Tuesday and may be ready to play as soon as Sunday against the Rams. In addition to Mostert, Tevin Coleman (knee) and Jerick McKinnon (neck) are also candidates to poach work from Wilson.

Wilson (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
EDGE Analysis
This comes as no surprise considering the 49ers indicated Wilson would be placed on injured reserve earlier in the week. It's a tough bit of luck for the third-year pro after easily the best game of his career, but the return of Tevin Coleman (knee) and improving health of Jerick McKinnon likely spelled a decreased role for Wilson anyhow. Wilson will stay on injured reserve a minimum of three weeks; just long enough for Raheem Mostert (ankle) to also be eligible to return.

Wilson (ankle) is expected to land on the 49ers' injured reserve later this week, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
This news come straight from coach Kyle Shanahan. Wilson was excelling in his opportunity as the team's primary back prior to suffering a high-ankle sprain during Sunday's win at New England, accumulating 112 yards and three touchdowns on the ground before exiting. The expected move to IR means he'll join fellow running backs Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Tevin Coleman (knee) on IR, though Coleman could be activated from the list this week. Nonetheless, Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty are the 49ers' current available backs heading into Week 8.

The injury Wilson suffered in Sunday's win over the Patriots is believed to be a high-ankle sprain, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
EDGE Analysis
Wilson rumbled for over 100 yards and three touchdowns before his injury. The typical recovery timeline for high-ankle sprains is 4-6 weeks, so there's a good chance Wilson will have to join fellow 49ers running backs Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Tevin Coleman (knee) on IR. If that turns out to be the case, JaMycal Hasty should take on an increased role alongside Jerick McKinnon in the run-heavy 49ers offense.

Wilson (ankle) won't return to Sunday's game at New England, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
On his third TD of the day, Wilson was tackled awkwardly, had difficulty getting to his feet and eventually needed a cart to get to the locker room. He was the 49ers' clear lead running back, turning 17 carries into 112 yards and two catches (on two targets) into eight yards. If he eventually requires time on the sideline, Wilson will join Raheem Mostert (knee) and Tevin Coleman (knee) as the team's injured running backs. After that trio, San Francisco is left with Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty out of the backfield.

Wilson is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Patriots due to an ankle injury, Dan Graziano of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Wilson was enjoying the best game of his career before being carted off in the third quarter. He had 17 carries for 112 yards and three scores. Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty will take over as San Francisco's lead running backs.
