The 49ers signed restricted free-agent RB Jeff Wilson to a 1-year deal, ESPN's Field Yates reports. Wilson set career highs across the board last season and finished strong, tallying 58 carries for 319 yards (5.5 YPC) and 2 scores over the final 3 games. He also saw 13 targets during that stretch -- although he caught just 4 of them. With both Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon set to hit free agency in March, it's Wilson and Raheem Mostert signed in San Francisco for 2021 right now.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that 49ers RB Raheem Mostert suffered another high-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys and is "likely" done for the season. That leaves Jeff Wilson Jr. likely to lead the Week 16 backfield, assuming his own ankle issue doesn't get in the way. Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon sit behind Wilson on the depth chart.
Update: Tom Pelissero reports that the team is placing Mostert on IR.
49ers RB Raheem Mostert re-injured his left ankle in the 3rd quarter of Sunday's game against the Cowboys. We'll pass along an update when we get one, but it sure looks like Mostert's day is over.
49ers RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) put in a full practice on Friday and isn't listed on the final injury report. So he should be ready for his usual role vs. the Cowboys this weekend. Mostert has worked in a committee alongside RB Jeff Wilson the past 3 weeks, leading in carries 39 to 30 but trailing 8 to 7 in targets.
49ers RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. It gives him a chance to play against the Cowboys this weekend. Check back tomorrow afternoon for another update on his status.
49ers RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. We don't have any details on the ankle injury, but he's clearly in some danger of missing this weekend's game vs. Dallas. Mostert's absence would presumably make Jeff Wilson San Francisco's lead back, with Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon candidates for bigger roles.
49ers RB Raheem Mostert came out of Sunday's loss to Washington with an ankle injury, HC Kyle Shanahan said. Mostert was getting additional testing done on Monday, and Shanny said he'd know more about Mostert's status on Wednesday. We'll keep an eye on the situation. Jeff Wilson would seemingly be in line to operate as San Francisco's lead back vs. Dallas this weekend if Mostert is out.
49ers RBs Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Jeff Wilson (ankle) are active for today’s game against the Rams. Mostert has been San Francisco’s lead back when healthy this season, so consider him a risk/reward RB2 in his 1st game back vs. Los Angeles’ 10th-ranked RB defense.
ESPN's Adam Schefter lists 49ers RBs Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson among the "players returning to play this week." There's no specific report from Schefty on the 'Niners backfield, but we assume Mostert and Wilson will be active for today's game against the Rams. They should join Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty in the backfield. Mostert has been the lead back here when healthy and is the best Week 12 fantasy play.
49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Friday that RBs Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Jeff Wilson (ankle) will be activated for Week 12 but listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams. The fact that they're being placed on the active roster makes us think they'll play, but we'll look for further updates. RB Tevin Coleman (knee) has been ruled out for Week 12.
The 49ers have designated RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Jeff Wilson Jr. (ankle) to return from IR. That makes each player eligible to practice this week. We'll see whether either or both are ready to play. The Niners have 3 weeks to decide whether to activate them. HC Kyle Shanahan said before the Week 11 bye that he hoped to get Mostert back onto the field for Week 12. We'll be interested in Mostert as a potential backfield leader if he's ready to go. Wilson would likely be more of a reserve in San Francisco's crowded backfield. Tevin Coleman (knee) -- who didn't land on IR -- will also bear watching through the practice week.
