Kyle Shanahan says Raheem Mostert broke his arm, is likely out for the season

Nov 1, 2018 at 9:51 PM--


Raheem Mostert carried the football seven times for 86 yards before being tripped up by Oakland Raiders defensive tackle Clinton McDonald in the third quarter and going down with what appeared to be a gruesome arm injury. He screamed on the field while teammates and Raiders players gestured to the sidelines for help.

Mostert was eventually able to leave the field and headed to the locker room with his arm in a brace. He was, obviously, ruled out for the remainder of the game.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed after the game that Mostert fractured his right forearm and will likely miss the remainder of the season. It's another injury to add to the list for a team that has been plagued with them this season.

"They didn't tell me, but I would assume so with a broken arm," Shanahan responded when asked if the injury was season-ending.

Mostert was having his best NFL season rushing the football while averaging a career-high 7.7 yards per attempt. He likely finishes the season with 34 carries for 261 yards while adding six receptions for 25 yards. Mostert had his first career touchdown during Thursday night's 34-3 victory over the Raiders.


The 49ers will likely add another running back to the active roster. The team has Matt Dayes and Jeff Wilson on the practice squad.

Have we seen Raheem Mostert in red and gold for the last time? The San Francisco 49ers running back will become a free agent after this season. He appeared in one game before suffering a knee injury and landing on injured reserve. The initial prognosis had Mostert missing about eight weeks, providing hope that the veteran running back would return this season. It wasn't long before Mostert announced that he opted for surgery, ending his 2021 campaign. "After consulting with multiple doctors and weighing my options, I will be having season-ending surgery to repair my knee," wrote Mostert via his announcement. Mostert underwent surgery this past week and



Why Rich Eisen says the 49ers would be 'crazy' to put Kyle Shanahan on the hot seat

If you spend a lot of time on social media, you probably noticed a very vocal segment of The Faithful calling for the San Francisco 49ers to fire head coach Kyle Shanahan. If not that, they believe Shanahan should at least be on the hot seat, and the outcome of this season to determine his fate. Shanahan was given a pass after last season's six-win campaign. His team was coming off a Super Bowl appearance, after all, and had just endured one of the most injury-plagued seasons in recent NFL history. Shanahan is also 31-38 as a head coach, including 2019's 13-3 season. If you throw that out the window, the coach has never guided a team to more than six wins. He could do so this season. However, after winning their first two games, the 49ers have stumbled through



49ers' Javon Kinlaw a candidate for injured reserve, JaMycal Hasty expected to be 'full-go,' says Kyle Shanahan

The San Francisco 49ers have been trying to manage defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw's knee injury, but some extended rest might be necessary for the second-year player. Today, head coach Kyle Shanahan said that Kinlaw is a candidate to land on injured reserve, which would force him to miss a minimum of three games. "Yes, definitely [have to consider injured reserve]," Shanahan said. "Yeah, it's something we're worried about and concerned about, something we'll probably decide here in the next week." What are the 49ers' options with the interior of the defensive line without Kinlaw? "We've got [Kentavius] Street, we've got D.J. Jones, we've got Zach Kerr," Shanahan responded. "And we've got guys on [the] practice squad with [Darrion] Daniels and stuff,

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters today via a conference call. He was asked about the quarterback situation heading into Week 8 against the Chicago Bears and said that Jimmy Garoppolo would remain the team's starter. The good news is that Trey Lance might be available to back up Garoppolo. Shanahan expects the rookie to practice this week. "Coming back from the injury, they tell me he's on pace to be able to come out to practice on Wednesday," Shanahan said. "He might be a little limited at it, though, but that's what we're hoping for. "But in terms of deciding who's going at quarterback, that has to do with Jimmy's health. Jimmy, I wanted to see how his calf was. It was good today, and so he'll be
