49ers place C Marcus Martin on IR, promote RB Raheem Mostert from practice squad

Dec 31, 2016 at 1:12 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers have announced that the team has placed C Marcus Martin on the injured reserve list. The offensive lineman becomes the team's 19th player on injured reserve. Martin appeared in five games and started two with the 49ers this season. He missed practices this week with an ankle injury and was declared out for Sunday's finale against the Seattle Seahawks.

To take his place on the roster, the 49ers have promoted RB Raheem Mostert from the practice squad.

Mostert entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2015. He spent time on their practice squad and was signed to the active roster of the Miami Dolphins on September 15, 2015. Mostert would go on to appear in one game with Miami, seven games with the Baltimore Ravens, and three games with the Cleveland Browns in 2015, where he returned a total of 19 kickoffs for 530 yards.

This season, Mostert spent time with Cleveland, the New York Jets, and the Chicago Bears before being signed to the 49ers practice squad on November 28.

The promotion of Mostert likely means that RB Mike Davis will be inactive on Sunday. Earlier this week, the 49ers placed starting running back Carlos Hyde on injured reserve.

Today's roster move will likely leave the 49ers with Shaun Draughn, DuJuan Harris, and Mostert as the active running backs for Sunday's game.

Dolphins RB Raheem Mostert doesn't appreciate how 49ers reacted to his injury

Raheem Mostert is the Miami Dolphins' leading rusher this season, and the running back may have some beef with his former team when he faces the San Francisco 49ers next weekend. Mostert appeared in just nine games during his last two seasons with the 49ers. He played in just one game last season before opting to undergo season-ending knee surgery. In the last year of his deal, it was a decision he felt was best for his NFL future. Apparently, the Niners weren't pleased with the decision. "Mostert weighed all pros and all cons when he decided to sit out the season," wrote Tyler Dunne of Go Long. "He knew how much he was risking - the decision absolutely pissed the 49ers off - but he also knew how hard he would work." The 49ers initially

With a big-time matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Miami Dolphins quickly approaching, two former Niners have voiced their opinions about their new NFL team. While the Niners are focused on this afternoon's game against the New Orleans Saints, Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr. have been speaking with Tyler Dunne of Go Long, sharing their thoughts on next weekend's opponent. Mostert was critical of how the 49ers reacted to his Week 1 injury last season. Head coach Kyle Shanahan initially anticipated the knee injury would keep the running back out for about eight weeks. However, Mostert instead opted to undergo season-ending surgery. "He knew how

There's already a lot of hype surrounding the Week 13 matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Miami Dolphins. It's the first contest between Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel and his former mentor, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan. It will feature two former San Francisco running backs, Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr., returning to Levi's Stadium. Mostert joined McDaniel in Miami as a free agent this offseason. The 49ers traded Wilson to the Dolphins on November 1 after acquiring Christian McCaffrey. The hype is seemingly growing in the week leading to the game. 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel jokingly tweeted, "Raheem be real with yourself," to his former teammate after Mostert commented about his former

In a recent feature for Go Long, Miami Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert criticized his former team and upcoming opponent, the San Francisco 49ers, for how they handled his injury situation last year. Mostert suffered a knee injury during Week 1, and the 49ers felt the running back would miss about eight weeks. However, Mostert opted to have season-ending surgery instead, a decision that writer Tyler Dunne states "absolutely pissed the 49ers off." "It isn't right," Mostert told Dunne. "And it's up to the player to step up and say, 'This isn't right. I don't think this is the best of my interest.' Sometimes, you don't get that with players.
