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.

George Kittle spoke with Deebo Samuel, says 49ers WR is 'in a good place'

The drama surrounding Deebo Samuel has died down a bit. Much of that is due to the San Francisco 49ers not granting his trade request ahead of the draft. By not doing so, the team declared that they believe the relationship with their do-everything wideout can be mended. George Kittle has been making the media rounds today. Of course, among the questions directed toward the All-Pro tight end involves the status of Samuel. After all, it's a storyline that dominated NFL headlines heading into the draft. "I actually talked to him a few days ago," Kittle said on The Pat McAfee Show. "Yeah, he seemed like he was in a good mood. He was hanging out with his kid, who he just had. ... I didn't ask about his contract, so we were just talking about other things,

49ers rookie Danny Gray did this after dropping a deep pass during practice

Like many NFL players, rookie wide receiver Danny Gray strives for perfection. Unfortunately, no one can be perfect. For a quarterback, it's easy to dwell on that off-target throw. Maybe it's that football that slipped out of your grip for a running back. For a cornerback, that near-interception that bounced off your eager hands. For a wide receiver, it's that big-play throw that you couldn't haul in. That's what happened to Gray on Friday afternoon during the San Francisco 49ers' first practice of a three-day rookie minicamp. While others might try to push the slip-up out of their minds and focus on the next rep. Not Gray. According to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle, the rookie wideout fell to the ground and paid penance with 10



Will 49ers Jimmy Garoppolo practice once he's cleared?

Now that the Deebo Samuel drama is currently in hibernation, and the "Trey Lance isn't ready" tour has slowed some, Jimmy Garoppolo is back in the headlines. Not for any reason other than it's Jimmy Garoppolo. I know, I know. You're sick of hearing his name. Trust me. I'm sick of hearing it and spelling it. But until the San Francisco 49ers trade Garoppolo, name him the starter, declare that Lance is the starter or decree that the beginning of training camp will be the dawning of a new era in the 49ers' quarterback room, we will continue to hear about him. So until there is a mutual parting of the ways, writers will write about him, content creators will talk about him, reporters will continue to speculate, and the national media will continue to make things
