Kyle Shanahan hopes to have Raheem Mostert, Deebo Samuel, others back for 49ers-Rams

Nov 17, 2020 at 4:52 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers placed running back JaMycal Hasty (broken collarbone) and safety Johnathan Cyprien (hamstring) on injured reserve today. The team also placed safety Jared Mayden on the practice squad injured reserve list due to a quad strain.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters via Zoom this afternoon and provided several additional injury updates on players who did not play on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.

The 49ers hope to get the following players back in time for the team's Week 12 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams, giving San Francisco a boost down the stretch:


The following player has an outside chance to return for the Rams game, but the week after is more likely:

  • LB Mark Nzeocha (on IR, quad)
  • RB Jeff Wilson (on IR, ankle)

The following player is expected to miss more time:

  • CB K'Waun Williams (ankle)

The coach also discussed the impact of getting back players like Samuel and Sherman.

"Just those two guys, it's a huge boost," Shanahan told reporters. "Getting guys who you depend on, who've done a lot for us, I think you guys can see how Deebo's been in just the games he's played this year. How Sherm's been, just even when he came out to practice, the boost he gives.

"I also want to say, which I echoed to the guys today too, that we're not going to win just because these guys are coming back. These guys haven't played football in a while and usually when they do come back, it takes them a week or so to get into it and to really affect a game. We're going to win based off of whether the guys that we have get better or worse.

"I think we've got some guys giving everything, but I still think guys can take it to another level. ... Getting Deebo back, getting Raheem back, Sherm, that stuff is going to help big. That's some juice we need, but we also don't have much room for error with where our record is right now. So, I can't count on those guys just to come in and change everything."

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.

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



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
