The San Francisco 49ers are getting two players back ahead of the big NFC West showdown against the Seattle Seahawks.

The Niners activated running back Tevin Coleman plus cornerback K’Waun Williams to the 53-man roster, and moved Jeff Wilson Jr. to the IR.

Coleman sat out the previous five games with a knee injury. The 27-year-old started 11 games for the 49ers last season, finishing with 544 yards and six touchdowns. He will join fellow running backs JaMycal Hasty and Jerick McKinnon on the roster for Sunday’s game.

Williams hurt his knee against in Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles. He will have his hands full with Seattle’s prolific passing offense, which ranks second in the NFL. The slot corner should see plenty of Seahawks receiver Tyler Lockett, who sits No. 5 in yards per game. Safety Jimmie Ward is questionable for the Week 8 matchup.

San Francisco also downgraded Jaquiski Tartt and Richie James, both players didn’t make the trip to the Pacific Northwest. Linebacker Kwon Alexander and defensive lineman Kentavius Street are both listed as doubtful. The Niners also promoted recie ver River Cracraft and safety Johnathan Cyprien from the practice squad.

Tight end Jordan Reed won’t play this week, but could return for the Thursday night game against Green Bay Packers.
