49ers’ Raheem Mostert thanks fans for the best wishes, confirms surgery ‘went great’

Oct 17, 2021 at 4:43 PM--


Have we seen Raheem Mostert in red and gold for the last time? The San Francisco 49ers running back will become a free agent after this season. He appeared in one game before suffering a knee injury and landing on injured reserve.

The initial prognosis had Mostert missing about eight weeks, providing hope that the veteran running back would return this season. It wasn't long before Mostert announced that he opted for surgery, ending his 2021 campaign.

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

Mostert underwent surgery this past week and posted the following post-surgery video via Instagram.


Today, Mostert thanked the fans who wished him well and expressed his excitement as he embarks on the road to recovery.


Added Mostert in his initial announcement: "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!"

Next season will be Mostert's eighth in the NFL. During his time with San Francisco, he has amassed 1,610 rushing yards, 361 receiving yards, 11 rushing touchdowns, and three receiving touchdowns through 46 games and nine starts.

Mostert waited a month for his surgery. The running back was seen on the sidelines with his teammates following the injury.

"He's still waiting to have the surgery," head coach Kyle Shanahan explained earlier this month, "which they told me it takes some time for them to find the right donor for that part. So, he's just waiting and spending time with the team."

In April, the 49ers drafted two running backs — Trey Sermon out of Ohio State in the third round and Elijah Mitchell out of Louisiana in the sixth round.

The season ended prematurely for offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey and defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw. McGlinchey suffered a torn quad in the San Francisco 49ers' November 7 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Kinlaw has been dealing with a knee injury that was initially sustained at the end of last season. He recently underwent ACL reconstruction. "Evaluation of the knee in surgery confirmed suspicions that the ACL had chronic changes that would be best treated with ACL reconstruction," read a joint statement from the 49ers medical staff, Dr. Tim McAdams, and Dr. Neal ElAttrache. "This procedure gives him the best opportunity to make a full recovery and return to

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw is on track to be activated from injured reserve after having his practice window opened last week. Head coach Kyle Shanahan hopes Greenlaw and defensive end Dee Ford can be activated in time for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings. That's the plan, for now. Ford did not practice during Wednesday's session but is expected to do so on Thursday. He's been on injured reserve since November 6 due to a back injury. Greenlaw underwent core muscle surgery and has been on injured reserve since September 18. "Greenlaw did a good job out there today," Shanahan said during KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "He'll go meet with the trainers now and tell them how it felt and stuff. Dee, we don't want to put



Steve Young: 49ers find their dogs, Jimmy Garoppolo at his best

A week ago, Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young wondered if the San Francisco 49ers had any dogs on the team. A conversation with a former teammate and another Hall of Fame player, Jerry Rice, led Young to ponder the question. "There's no dogs," Rice told Young. Of course, that was coming off an embarrassing loss to an injury-depleted Arizona Cardinals team. The quarterback turned ESPN analyst, like fans, saw a completely different squad on Monday night against the Los Angeles Rams. It was a dominant performance that ended with a 31-10 upset win and Kyle Shanahan's fifth consecutive
