49ers RB Raheem Mostert announces he will undergo season-ending surgery

Sep 14, 2021 at 11:59 AM--


San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert was only supposed to miss eight weeks after suffering a knee injury against the Detroit Lions on Sunday. However, he revealed today that he plans to have season-ending surgery instead to repair the damage.

"After consulting with multiple doctors and weighing my options, I will be having season-ending surgery to repair my knee," wrote Mostert.

"This gives me, without a doubt in my mind, the best possibility at coming back 110%. I have ALWAYS come back stronger and I will this time too! I have faith in myself, my doctors, my support system, my team, and God. He makes no mistakes!!"

On Monday, head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters that Mostert chipped cartilage in his knee and would have surgery but would return this season. Instead, the running back has opted to do what he feels is best for his future, which will mean the end of his 2021 campaign.

"I'm gutted. This sucks!" Mostert continued. "This is obviously not what I worked so hard for. I wish more than anything I could be out there on the field with my brothers!!! Thank you for your support in our decision. I'M FAR FROM DONE!"


Tom Pelissero of NFL Network added that Mostert's recovery is now expected to be about six months long. The running back's injury is now being reported to be a torn meniscus.

Tweeted Pelissero: "Mostert's agent, Brett Tessler, tells me: 'We decided to take the best option for his long-term health. We expect that he'll be back next season at 100%.'"


Mostert is in his seventh NFL season. He had two carries for 20 yards before the injury on Sunday. The running back is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent after this season.

49ers elated, Cowboys frustrated after roller coaster ending to Wild Card contest

There was a quite a contrast in reactions between the Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers after the eventful way their Wild Card game came to an end on Sunday evening. With the 49ers up 23-17 in the game's final seconds, the Cowboys were in the process of making one final attempt at a come-from-behind win after trailing 23-7 earlier in the fourth quarter. The Cowboys had the ball at the 49ers' 41-yard line with 14 seconds left to play when they called for a quarterback run by Dak Prescott, which advanced the ball to the 24-yard line. But with no time outs remaining, the Cowboys had to rush to get lined up in order to get off another play. Between the time it took them to get lined up and the time the umpire needed to set the ball, the Cowboys wound up not

The San Francisco 49ers tackle intends to be back on the field with his teammates for Sunday's playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys. Williams spoke with reporters after Thursday's practice and provided some details on the injury that forced him to cheer from the sidelines this past weekend. The good news is that Williams is feeling better than he did last week, and that bodes well for his availability on Sunday. "The elbow is doing good," Williams said. "It's made a lot of improvement over the past week or so. Yeah, I practiced today. It felt pretty good. I chose to go with the tape (versus a brace). I'm not a huge fan of the brace. I went with the tape
