Raheem Mostert (knee) is out for the season.
Mostert announced the news himself, saying that after consulting with multiple doctors and going through his options, he is having season-ending knee surgery. Mostert says he is "gutted" but feels this is the best decision to get him back to 100% in the long-term. This is obviously a tough break for Mostert, who has struggled to stay healthy on the field, and the 49ers. The good news is Mostert should be 100% well ahead of next season. Mostert will turn 30 this offseason, but he hasn't had a ton of touches throughout his career and should certainly be able to produce moving forward if he can stay on the field.
Raheem Mostert will miss approximately eight weeks with a torn knee cartilage.
The veteran is headed to IR, and he likely won't be back until November, so this is obviously a significant blow to fantasy owners that drafted him early over the summer. Sixth-round pick Elijah Mitchell rushed for 100+ yards and a score in his debut, and he is a top waiver pickup ahead of Week 2. Also, this news opens the door for fellow rookie Trey Sermon to make an impact after being a surprising inactive yesterday, and JaMycal Hasty will have a role, too. Hopefully there is some sort of defined order for San Francisco, but Kyle Shanahan could certainly end up making the backfield a week-by-week headache.
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.
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.
Raheem Mostert (ankle) is likely done for the season.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says Mostert suffered another high-ankle sprain and is likely out for the next two weeks. Out of the playoff mix, it would be a surprise if the Niners bring Mostert back. Mostert's year ends with 104 carries for 521 yards and two touchdowns along with 16 receptions for 156 yards and one touchdown receiving in eight games. The dynamic runner averaged 5.0 yards per carry this season, but he had trouble staying on the field due to various leg injuries.
Raheem Mostert (ankle) did not return for the 49ers.
Mostert did not appear to attempt to re-enter the game against the Cowboys. Before leaving, Mostert had 14 carries for 68 yards. With two weeks remaining in the regular season, the Niners may just opt to place Mostert on injured reserve.
Raheem Mostert (ankle) is officially questionable to return for the 49ers.
Mostert hobbled off to the sideline and didn't want to put much pressure on his ankle, but the replay didn't appear to show much, so we'll see if the dynamic runner is able to return today. Mostert and the Niners have been having success on the ground against the Cowboys this afternoon.
Raheem Mostert is not on the injury report for Week 15.
Mostert underwent testing on his ankle this week and missed Wednesday's practice, but being completely removed from the injury report should mean he's a full go on Sunday. Jeff Wilson will also get carries and is on the low-end RB2 map in a great matchup, but Mostert's upside makes him a borderline top-15 option with big-time upside if he can get to the second level against the Dallas defense.
Raheem Mostert (ankle) was officially limited in today's practice.
This was expected after 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan basically said the team wanted to give Mostert a rest day to start the practice week yesterday. However, Mostert is not a lock to play this Sunday against the Cowboys. We do anticipate him playing, but he could be trending toward a questionable tag when the final Week 15 injury report is released tomorrow.
Raheem Mostert is getting his ankle evaluated.
Mostert has been banged up all season, with his ankle in particular giving him issues. He’s in doubt for an appetizing Week 15 matchup with the Cowboys, but more information on his status may be available tomorrow after testing.
The 49ers officially activated Raheem Mostert (ankle) from injured reserve.
Mostert missed the past four games with his ankle issue, and he's set to make his return tomorrow against the Rams. Despite the tough matchup, Mostert is immediately in the startable mix for Week 12 fantasy lineups.
The 49ers designated Raheem Mostert (ankle) for return off injured reserve.
This activates Mostert's 21-day practice window, and he's eligible to play this Sunday against the Rams if he's activated to the 53-man roster by the weekend. Mostert has three weeks before he either must be taken off injured reserve or spend the rest of the year there, but it would be a bit of a surprise if he's not back soon.
Raheem Mostert (ankle) has been ruled out for Week 10.
There was some hope that Mostert would be able to return this Sunday against the Saints, but he's out along with Tevin Coleman (knee). There's optimism that Mostert will be able to return in Week 12 following the Niners' bye week.
Raheem Mostert has a high-ankle sprain.
49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan says that Mostert is expected to miss time and will likely go on injured reserve. Mostert has looked very good this season, but he's unfortunately had trouble staying healthy. JaMycal Hasty flashed some when Mostert went down last night, and San Francisco may go with a committee approach with Jerick McKinnon, Jeff Wilson Jr., and Hasty while Mostert is out.
Raheem Mostert (ankle) has been ruled out for the rest of tonight.
Mostert injured his ankle toward the end of the first half, and he came out after just trying to play through the injury for just one play in the third quarter. Before leaving, Mostert had 17 carries for 65 yards along with two receptions for 11 yards. It's not a great sign that Mostert is being ruled out already, and remember he's coming off an MCL sprain that forced him to miss some time already this season.
Raheem Mostert (knee) is officially active for Week 5.
Mostert was able to practice all week on a limited basis, so this was the hope entering today. Jerick McKinnon has received a good amount of playing time with Mostert out, but Mostert is expected to lead this committee backfield.
Raheem Mostert (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Week 5.
The Niners are optimistic that Mostert will be able to return to the lineup this week, and getting on the practice field all week is a good indication that he’ll be ready for Sunday. However, if you plan on using Mostert in your lineup, be sure to have a backup plan from the later games, as San Francisco does not kick off until 4:05 PM ET.
Raheem Mostert (knee) remains limited in practice.
Two consecutive practices—even on a limited basis—are a good sign for Mostert as he looks to return to the lineup after missing the past two games. The final Week 5 injury report will be out tomorrow.
Raheem Mostert (knee) is practicing on a limited basis.
Mostert seems very close to a return, so we'll see if he ramps up participation over the next two days. He might not get a full workload if he plays on Sunday, but Mostert's big-play upside would put him back in low-end RB2/FLEX territory.
Raheem Mostert (knee) is officially out for Week 4.
Mostert did not practice all week, so Jerick McKinnon and Jeff Wilson Jr. will lead the San Francisco backfield for the second consecutive week. Mostert remains week-to-week with his MCL sprain.
Raheem Mostert (knee) officially did not practice today.
There’s been hope that Mostert would return to the lineup this week, but his status is looking shaky. Hopefully Mostert can get on the practice field tomorrow and get a questionable tag on the Week 4 injury report.
Raheem Mostert (knee) is not practicing.
Mostert missed last week's game and may be on the wrong side of questionable for Week 4. Jerick McKinnon and Jeff Wilson would again lead the backfield if Mostert is out again, but we'll see if he can get in at least a limited session on Thursday or Friday to have a shot at suiting up.
Raheem Mostert (knee) is not expected to play in Week 3.
With the way injuries went over the weekend, this almost classifies as good news for fantasy owners that drafted Mostert. With the status of Tevin Coleman (knee) unknown, it's possible Jerick McKinnon starts next week against the Giants. The waiver wire should be busier than ever over the next few days for fantasy owners trying to fill holes at running back.
Raheem Mostert (knee) has been ruled out for the rest of today's game.
Mostert walked to the locker room in the first half and didn't appear to be in too much discomfort, but perhaps the Niners are taking a cautious approach after dominating the first 30 minutes. Mostert broke a quick long touchdown run early in the game, and he ends the afternoon with eight carries for 92 yards and a touchdown along with two receptions for 15 yards. More information on the extent of Mostert's injury should be available in the next day or so.
Raheem Mostert leads San Francisco backfield in Week 1.
Mostert carried 15 times for 56 yards and caught four passes for 95 yards and a touchdown in the Niners' loss to the Cardinals. The touchdown reception was a 76-yarder on an angle route where Mostert basically went to the end zone untouched. Tevin Coleman had just four carries, but he had to deal with air quality issues in California because of his sickle cell trait, so perhaps the backfield split will be more even between Mostert, Coleman, and Jerick McKinnon moving forward. Next week against the Jets is a tough matchup, but Mostert should probably be in most fantasy lineups for Week 2.
49ers give Raheem Mostert new contract.
Mostert's agent Brett Tessler just tweeted, "Just finalized a new deal for Raheem Mostert with the San Francisco 49ers. Happy we got things worked out and looking forward to him having another great season there. Thanks to the organization for taking care of him." Mostert recently requested a new contract or a trade, but the Niners are somewhat surprisingly giving the fast runner what he wanted. Perhaps San Francisco missing out on All-Pro safety Jamal Adams, who was traded to the Seahawks over the weekend, made them more willing to give Mostert a bump in pay. Mostert will again play a big role in Kyle Shanahan's offense after his breakout 2019 stretch.
Raheem Mostert set to report to the 49ers?
Following the running back's recent trade request if the Niners will not give him a new contract, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Mostert "spoke to a high-ranking member of the SF organization to clear the air and get on the same page moving forward." Rapoport adds that Mostert's agent Brett Tessler says, "hopefully that'll be the case." Players are basically forced to report to camp after the new CBA was passed earlier this year, so Mostert probably doesn't have much power in this showdown. He'll likely be with San Francisco this season.
Raheem Mostert has requested a trade from the 49ers.
Mostert has said that he wants a new contract ahead of this season, but his trade request is a bit of a surprise. Mostert's agent Brett Tessler tweeted, "After months of unproductive talks with the 49ers about fairly adjusting Raheem Mostert's contract (which paid him for special teams) we have requested a trade. Disappointing that it would come to this for a guy who led all NFL RBs in YPC & helped lead them to the Super Bowl." Mostert worked his way into a large role on offense and averaged 5.6 yards per carry with ten total touchdowns last season, and he's looking to cash in now at 28 years old—or at the very least get a pay raise that pays him as a key contributor on offense with two years left on his deal. The situation becomes an interesting one, as the 49ers might not be willing to budge considering the plug-and-play success of numerous running backs in the Shanahan offense (along with the presence of Tevin Coleman in the backfield). With training camp around the corner, a holdout is certainly a possibility.
Raheem Mostert surprisingly leads San Francisco backfield in 20-17 loss to the Ravens.
Mostert rushed 19 times for 146 yards and a touchdown, also adding two receptions for eight yards. The veteran speedster worked clearly ahead of starter Tevin Coleman (six touches for 15 yards) against a stingy Baltimore defense, and this backfield will be extremely difficult to predict next week for a huge matchup in New Orleans. At worst, Mostert should be considered a high-upside FLEX play.
Raheem Mostert (knee) is officially active against the Cardinals.
Mostert was again listed as questionable entering the weekend, but he’s been dealing with questionable tags and continues to play despite a minor knee issue. The explosive running back is set for more work behind Tevin Coleman with Matt Breida (ankle) out.
Raheem Mostert (knee) is officially questionable for Week 11.
Mostert has been battling his knee issue, but he continues to play; we expect that will remain the case for this Sunday against the Cardinals. The Niners kickoff at 4:05 PM ET, so Mostert's status won't be locked in until after the early games have kickoff off on Sunday.
Raheem Mostert (knee) is officially active for Week 9.
Mostert remains banged up, but he’s ready to go for a Thursday night matchup at Arizona. It’s difficult to trust Mostert in fantasy lineups with Matt Breida (ankle) in the lineup, but his presence is a boost for the Niners in real life.
Raheem Mostert (knee) is officially listed as questionable for tomorrow night.
Mostert was listed as a non-participant on Monday and Tuesday before getting in a limited practice today. Mostert is less than 100%, but we expect he'll keep playing as he has. Actives and inactives for the Thursday game will be released before 7:00 PM ET tomorrow.
Raheem Mostert (knee) is officially active against the Redskins.
Mostert practiced on Friday, leading to optimism about his status for today’s Week 7 game. He’ll continue to mix in behind Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida in the Niners backfield.
Raheem Mostert (knee) is officially questionable for Week 7.
Mostert at least has a shot to play against the Redskins on Sunday, but the 49ers are not going to rush him out there in a game they should be able to handle—especially with Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida leading a deep running back group. San Francisco plays at 1:00 PM ET this week, so Mostert's status will be known by 11:30 AM ET on Sunday.
The Niners signed Raheem Mostert to a three-year deal.
Just a week ago, Mostert's agent Brett Tessler said that they decided to have this season play out on the one-year tender, but things have changed. Mostert is now locked up in San Francisco through the 2021 season after he performed exceptionally well before landing on injured reserve last season. The backfield situation of the Niners is slightly confusing at the moment, as they have free-agent addition Tevin Coleman, Jerick McKinnon, Matt Breida, and Mostert all in the mix. We would think one of McKinnon or Breida is moved at some point before next season.
Raheem Mostert has accepted a restricted tender from the Niners, according to his agent Brett Tessler.
Tessler says a multi-year deal was being discussed with the Niners, but they have decided to take the one-year tender of just over $2 million and "look forward to a great 2019." Mostert played really well when he was on the field for San Francisco last season, averaging an eye-popping 7.7 yards per carry on 34 attempts before his season ended with an ugly forearm injury. Other teams can still sign Mostert, though, and they wouldn't owe the Niners any compensation at this low tender. If the dynamic runner remains in San Fran, he'll look to carve out a nice change-of-pace role along with Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida in Kyle Shanahan's backfield.
The 49ers placed Raheem Mostert (forearm) on injured reserve.
Mostert is getting surgery to fix the gruesome injury suffered in last night's win against the Raiders, and he's thankfully expected to make a full recovery and be ready to go in 2019. We wish him the best of luck and look forward to seeing him on the field next year. Mostert's season ends with 34 carries for 261 yards (a whopping 7.7 yards per carry) and one touchdown along with six receptions for 25 yards. Mostert will be 27 this offseason, and we'd think plenty of other teams will be interested in signing him in free agency if he doesn't return to San Francisco.
Raheem Mostert leaves game with arm injury.
Mostert suffered one of the most gruesome injuries imaginable, as his forearm area moved in an unthinkable direction. Players instantly called for the training staff to come out, and Mostert is now in a cast and walking to the locker room. Before leaving, Mostert broke a 52-yard touchdown run as he was somehow literally untouched against poor defense from the Raiders. Mostert had seven carries for 86 yards and a touchdown before leaving, and now we just have to hope this injury isn't as serious as it looks.
Raheem Mostert (ankle) is officially active against the Raiders.
Mostert should be good to mix in behind starter Matt Breida tonight in a matchup against the league's 32nd-ranked run defense, but he's not a highly-recommended fantasy option as no lock to get more than a few touches.
Raheem Mostert (ankle) is officially questionable for tomorrow night.
It's difficult to gauge how close Mostert is to playing without a full slate of practices on a short week, but he'll probably look to give it a go against the Raiders. Matt Breida is also listed as questionable with an ankle injury, but he's fully expected to play. If both Mostert and Breida happen to miss the game, Alfred Morris would be the clear top back for the Niners and would be at least a strong FLEX option in fantasy lineups against a struggling run defense.
Raheem Mostert is dealing with an ankle injury.
This could explain why Mostert had just two carries in yesterday's game after playing so well in the previous two weeks. If the Niners had practice today, Mostert would not have practiced. With a quick turnaround for a Thursday night game to kickoff Week 9, Mostert is no lock to suit up. We'll track his status the next couple of days.
Raheem Mostert receives two carries in Week 8.
Mostert gained 18 yards on his two attempts against the Cardinals, but Alfred Morris (six carries, 28 yards) out-touched him in a change-up after Mostert averaged over seven yards per carry the last two games. Mostert might break a big play on Thursday night against the Raiders, but he's difficult to trust in fantasy lineups.
Raheem Mostert runs well again in Week 7.
With Matt Breida battling an ankle injury, Mostert received 11 touches against the Rams after his breakout performance in Week 6 against the Packers. Mostert carried seven times for 59 yards and added four receptions for 19 yards. If Breida misses time, it looks like Mostert will be the top Niners back over Alfred Morris, so he's worth a look as a pickup if you need some help at running back. And the Niners face a bad Cardinals run defense in Week 8.
Raheem Mostert plays great in Week 6.
With Matt Breida (ankle) at less than 100%, Mostert received more opportunities than usual, getting the nod over Alfred Morris (zero carries) in San Francisco's backfield. Mostert carried 12 times for 87 yards, by far crushing his career-high in rushing yards in a game; entering tonight, Mostert had just 13 carries in his career. The 26-year-old ran the ball very well, showing good vision and hitting the hole with great acceleration and speed. Breida is clearly the top running back for the Niners when healthy, but Mostert looks to have secured a solid role in the team's backfield mix. He's worth a look as a pickup, particularly in deep leagues.
Raheem Mostert loses a fumble in Week 5.
Mostert carried five times for 11 yards and caught one pass for -2 yards along with the lost fumble against the Cardinals. Matt Breida left the game with an ankle injury, so perhaps Mostert can carve out a nice role if he misses more time, but it's difficult to trust Mostert in fantasy lineups for Week 6 even if Breida does miss the game.
Raheem Mostert gets two touches in Week 2.
Mostert had one carry for zero yards and one reception for eight yards agains the Chiefs. Mostert is an excellent special-teams contributor for the Niners, but he's not on the fantasy radar.
Raheem Mostert gets one carry in Week 6.
Mostert took a toss after a fake dive to the up back and went 16 yards on the carry. Mostert is a dynamic guy off the bench for the Niners, but he doesn't get enough work to be a fantasy option.
Raheem Mostert gets four carries in Week 3.
Moster had four carries for 11 yards, but he did lose a fumble against the Rams. The good news is head coach Kyle Shanahan didn't lose confidence in Mostert, who was back out there after the fumble. Mostert isn't a fantasy option with Carlos Hyde getting almost all the work in the backfield.
Raheem Mostert goes off for two TDs in 49ers' third preseason game.
Mostert had four carries for 26 yards and a rushing touchdown while adding two receptions for 104 yards and an 87-yard touchdown through the air. The long receiving touchdown came on a screen pass where Mostert followed his blockers well and basically walked in for the last 50 yards. He definitely made a solid case to make the final roster for the 49ers, and he'll have Thursday's final preseason game to make his final case.
