Raheem Mostert (knee) has been ruled out for the rest of today.
With the Niners up by 21, it’s not a surprise that Mostert is being ruled out to begin the second half. We’ll get an update from Kyle Shanahan either after the game or within the next few days, but this is shaping up to be a potential multi-week type of thing for the veteran running back.
Ryan Fitzpatrick (hip) has been ruled out for the rest of today.
This isn’t a big surprise after Fitzpatrick was helped off the field in the first half, and it’ll be Taylor Heinicke finishing the rest of today’s Week 1 contest against the Chargers. Now we just have to hope this isn’t a long-term thing for Fitzpatrick. More information on his status should become available in the next day or so.
Ryan Fitzpatrick leaves game.
Fitzpatrick took a bit hit and was down on the field, and now Taylor Heinicke is in the game for Washington. Hopefully Fitzpatrick is able to return soon, but we’ll update you as more information becomes available.
Raheem Mostert (knee) questionable to return for the Niners.
Mostert had a great matchup to open the season and was off to a pretty good start, but this obviously isn’t a great sign for a guy that’s dealt with durability issues. Hopefully Mostert can return soon. Keep in mind that third-round rookie Trey Sermon was a healthy scratch for Week 1.
Emmanuel Sanders (foot) is active for the opener.
Sanders will make his team debut today against one of his former teams (Pittsburgh), and he should be viewed as an upside FLEX catching passes from Josh Allen. Buffalo will again be a very pass-happy team in 2021—and there’s even more reason to believe that with Zack Moss inactive.
Austin Ekeler (hamstring) officially active for Week 1.
Ekeler was thought to be trending in this direction, and he’ll be in the lineup today. Fantasy owners need to keep him in lineups as at least a high-end RB2, but it will be interesting to see if they limit his workload, and the matchup is a difficult one versus Washington.
Trey Sermon a surprise inactive for Week 1.
It sounds like Sermon might be a healthy scratch with no injury of note, so this is a shocker to start the season. Raheem Mostert was already a borderline RB1/RB2 play against Detroit, and he should be fed with JaMycal Hasty and Elijah Mitchell mixing in behind him. Hopefully we get some clarity on the reason Sermon is inactive, as he did nothing to suggest cause for concern in preseason action.
