49ers RB Raheem Mostert said he battled calf cramps in Saturday's Divisional Round game after being sick during the week. That might explain Tevin Coleman operating as San Francisco's lead back in the win over the Vikings -- although it seemed like Coleman was a big part of the game plan right from the get-go. He'll be the best fantasy bet in this backfield in the NFC Championship.
49ers RB Raheem Mostert (knee) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. That doesn't bode well for his chances to playing against the Eagles on Sunday night. With Mostert (and Tevin Coleman) out last week, Jerick McKinnon handled 14 carries and 4 targets to Jeff Wilson's 12 carries and 3 targets.
49ers HC Kyle Shanahan conceded Monday that RB Raheem Mostert (knee) "likely won't play" vs. the Giants this weekend. Mostert is reportedly dealing with a minor MCL sprain, so this shouldn't be a long-term absence. But it's looking like the 'Niners will be down to RBs Jerick McKinnon and Jeff Wilson for at least Week 3. Both guys are worth scooping off waiver wires.
The 49ers believe RB Raheem Mostert is dealing with a "mild sprain of the MCL," according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. It's relatively good news. The severity of the sprain will determine how long Mostert is sidelined. We should learn more tomorrow.
49ers RB Raheem Mostert suffered a knee injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Jets and is done for the day. That leaves San Francisco with RBs Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon.
The 49ers and RB Raheem Mostert have agreed to a restructured contract. No additional years were tacked on to the deal, but Mostert reportedly has a shot to double his old salary via incentives. He had requested a trade back earlier this month but will now be back in San Francisco this season. Mostert heads to training camp as the favorite for lead duties in this backfield -- although Tevin Coleman, and potentially Jerick McKinnon, will also be involved.
