49ers set franchise record for rushing yards allowed in a season

Dec 18, 2016 at 3:14 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers run defense, which ranks last in the league, has broken a franchise record for rushing yards allowed in a season. The previous record, set in 1978, was 2,363 yards. So far this season, the 49ers have allowed 2,365 yards this season and they still have a quarter and a half to play against the Atlanta Falcons, who lead the league in scoring.

The 49ers currently trail the Falcons 31-13 at the Georgia Dome. Defensive coordinator Jim O'Neil has been criticized for much of the season as his unit has been playing very poorly against the run. The 49ers defense has allowed over 100 yards rushing in 11 of their 14 games – including against the Falcons – so far this season.

The former special-teams standout single-handedly embarrassed the Packers defense to the tune of 220 rushing yards and four scores while averaging 7.6 yards per carry. Even during the regular season, Mostert averaged 5.6 yards per carry. He's averaged an impressive 6.0 yards per carry over his career. Although, his sample size before last season is minuscule. But it's that performance last season that has put Mostert on the radar, and Pro Football Focus recently named him as a

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch announced a few roster moves before a Monday afternoon press conference conducted via Zoom. One was the decision to place safety D.J. Reed on the reserve/non-football injury list, effectively ending his season. The versatile defensive back suffered a torn pectoral muscle in June. "That's a tough one for us," Lynch told reporters. "The earliest we might have had D.J. back was early November. It's a four-to-six-month injury, so that's been an active conversation Kyle and myself and the medical folks have been having. Ultimately, too difficult to keep a roster spot for something that may go into December. So we made that
