49ers-Cowboys Injury Report: Raheem Mostert doesn’t practice; Fred Warner, K’Waun Williams limited

Dec 16, 2020 at 3:18 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 15 contest against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

Raheem Mostert seemingly aggravated the ankle injury that forced the running back to miss four games this season. However, head coach Kyle Shanahan sounded optimistic that Mostert would return to practice this week.

"It's kind of how all high-ankle sprains are," Shanahan told reporters. "He zinged it a couple of times in the game, which is going to happen to him a lot, but it felt just a little worse than normal. And he's not practicing today, but (with) the imaging (results), we feel pretty good that he'll be able to get there at the end of the week.

"So, I think it hurts a little bit more than usual, but the imaging was somewhat positive. We're going to take care of him today and allow him to rest, and hopefully, he'll feel a little bit better tomorrow."

Wide receiver Deebo Samuel is expected to miss the remainder of the season with a hamstring injury sustained on Sunday. Linebacker Fred Warner also exited the game against Washington after suffering a stinger but was able to be a limited participant in practice.

The only difference between the actual practice report and what Shanahan estimated before the practice was offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill's participation. The coach didn't expect Brunskill to take part, and the offensive lineman ended up being limited.

The 49ers opened the practice window for tight end George Kittle. He remains on injured reserve so the team is not required to report on his participation level. As shown in the video below, though, Kittle was on the practice field with his teammates.


Below are Wednesday's practice participation reports for both the 49ers and Cowboys, which were provided by the 49ers Communications staff.

Fantasy Football Alert: Kyle Juszczyk says 49ers have 'big plans' for Raheem Mostert

Injuries limited San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert to eight games last season. Of course, injuries devastated the entire roster, resulting in a disappointing six-win campaign. Some better luck on the injury front could result in a quick turnaround for Mostert and his Niners. That's what recently re-signed fullback Kyle Juszczyk expects. In fact, the 49ers' offensive weapon expects big things in 2021 for his running back teammate. Much of that has to do with play-caller Kyle Shanahan and how the head coach takes advantage of each player's strengths. Juszczyk used wide receiver Deebo Samuel as an example. In each game, Shanahan installs two or three plays that can take advantage of the young wideout's physicality. "He knows that he just needs to get

Former 49ers receiver doesn't see the value in drafting Mac Jones at No. 3

Count former San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Torrey Smith among those who would question Mac Jones being the draft selection at No. 3 overall. It is important to note that Smith likes the Alabama quarterback and describes him as a "solid player," but is he a prospect worth trading future first-round picks and a third-rounder? Smith doesn't see it. "I promised to never be the former player that is a hater but I swear I have a hard time understanding the 49ers would trade all of that for Mac Jones," wrote Smith in a tweet. "I like Mac and I think he will be a solid player but as a prospect I don't see the value in 'mortgaging the future' for

The San Francisco 49ers are among several teams that have held pre-draft virtual meetings with former Michigan running back Chris Evans. The news was brought to us by Danish journalist Søren Hansen, who was the first to report the date of Justin Fields' second pro day. "Michigan's RB Chris Evans has had zoom calls with the 49ers, Bengals, Patriots, Vikings, Giants and Chiefs," reads a translated tweet by Hansen. "Did not get much playing time in college and sat out in 2019, but is a great back and a good receiver who had a strong Pro Day. Interesting name for the bottom of the third day of the draft." Evans (5-11, 211) carried the football 16 times for just 73 yards
