49ers’ Ronald Blair posts video of himself running four months after ACL injury

Mar 13, 2020 at 2:21 PM--


Ronald Blair didn't have his season end as he had hoped. The San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman landed on injured reserve on November 13, 2019, after suffering a torn ACL during a Week 10 contest against the Seattle Seahawks. He finished the season with 21 combined tackles and three sacks through nine games.

Blair, 27, was considered a valuable part of the 49ers' then-deep defensive line rotation. He is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent next week.

The defender posted a video on Instagram, showing himself running and on his way to recovery, four months after the injury occurred.

The 49ers made Blair a fifth-round selection out of Appalachian State in 2016. He has recorded 88 combined tackles, 13.5 sacks, and a forced fumble through his four NFL seasons.

San Francisco went on to lose other key components of the defensive line to season-ending injuries, including Damontre Moore (fractured arm), D.J. Jones (high-ankle sprain), and Jullian Taylor (ACL).

San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert has requested a trade, according to a tweet by his agent, Brett Tessler. The agent noted the months of unproductive contract talks with the team as the basis for the request. Tessler expressed disappointment in the situation and for his client, who led all NFL running backs in yards-per-carry (5.6) last season and helped the 49ers reach Super Bowl LIV. After months of unproductive talks with the 49ers about fairly adjusting Raheem Mostert's contract (which paid him for special teams) we have requested a trade. Disappointing that it would come to this for a guy who

PFF names 49ers' running back battle as one to watch after Raheem Mostert requests trade

It's entirely likely that the San Francisco 49ers don't grant Raheem Mostert's trade request, and the running back ends up leading the team's ferocious rushing attack this season. He was a breakout surprise last year — and really, in the playoffs — and has earned an increased workload going forward. Mostert's $2.575 million base salary for 2020 is second to Tevin Coleman's $4.55 million among the Niners' backs, if you don't count fullback Kyle Juszczyk, of course. The team also has Jerick McKinnon, who head coach Kyle Shanahan was high on after signing him in 2018. Injury has knocked him out of each of the last two seasons, though, so no one really knows yet what the 49ers have there. Ben Linsey of Pro Football Focus

Many consider San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan to be one of the most innovative young minds in football. After a massive rebuild that started in 2017, his squad reached the Super Bowl last season and was a play or two away from potentially winning a championship. The 49ers could be a formidable obstacle to opposing teams for years to come. Or everything could collapse. You never know in the NFL. But Shanahan is amid a championship window, and fans are waiting to see if he can take advantage of it. Writer Sean Wagner-McGough of CBS Sports recently ranked his top 10 NFL head coaches and listed Shanahan at No. 5 (h/t to Peter Panacy of Niner Noise).
