49ers signing RB Kerryon Johnson to practice squad after latest Raheem Mostert news

Sep 14, 2021 at 12:21 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are signing running back Kerryon Johnson to the practice squad, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. The news comes after running back Raheem Mostert, initially thought to have suffered an injury that would sideline him for eight weeks, announced that he has opted to have season-ending surgery to repair what head coach Kyle Shanahan described as "chipped knee cartilage."

Today's reports state that Mostert suffered a torn meniscus.


The Detroit Lions made Johnson (5-11, 206) a second-round selection out of Auburn in 2018. He carried the football 52 times for 181 yards with two rushing touchdowns through 16 games last season while adding 19 receptions for 187 yards with a receiving touchdown.

Johnson, 24, has 1,225 rushing yards on 283 attempts with eight rushing touchdowns through his three NFL seasons.

Johnson was among several players to work out for the 49ers this week. Aaron Wilson reports the following others worked out for the team.
