49ers RB Raheem Mostert to miss 8 weeks; CB Jason Verrett has torn ACL

San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert is out for up to two months with chipped cartilage in his knee.

Mostert left Sunday’s Week 1 win over the Detroit Lions in the first half and did not return. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday that Mostert would likely miss eight weeks.

Shanahan also confirmed cornerback Jason Verrett is out for the season with a torn ACL. He was injured with 7:28 remaining in the fourth quarter Sunday and the 49ers leading 41-17.

Both players are heading to injured reserve. Mostert will be eligible to return after sitting out three weeks.

Mostert started the game and had two carries for 20 yards for the 49ers but San Francisco showed impressive depth without him.

Elijah Mitchell rushed 19 times for 104 yards and a touchdown, and the 49ers can also turn to rookie Trey Sermon, who was a surprise gameday inactive at Detroit.

NFL injury roundup: Niners CB Jason Verrett fears another torn ACL

One of the unluckiest players in the NFL when it comes to staying healthy appears to have suffered another season-ending injury in Week 1 of the NFL season.

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Jason Verrett suffered a right knee injury that both the player and team fear could be a torn ACL, according to multiple reports. Verrett is expected to have the injury examined further when the Niners arrive in West Virginia for a week of practices before next week’s contest in Philadelphia.

“We’re hoping for the best, but it’s crushing,” Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters after his team’s 41-33 victory over the Detroit Lions. “The bad luck he’s had and putting together these last two years staying healthy and how good of a camp he had. … I have got a lot of love for JV and respect him as much as anyone I’ve ever been around. So, I’m really hurting for him.”

Selected in the first round of the 2014 draft by the Chargers, Verrett played a total of just six games from 2016 to 2019 due to a torn left ACL in 2016 that never fully healed, followed by a torn right Achilles suffered during a training camp conditioning test while with the Chargers in 2018.

Finally healthy, Verrett, 30, signed with San Francisco before the 2019 season.

With Verrett likely out, the Niners could turn to a familiar face for much-needed depth — veteran free agent cornerback Richard Sherman.

“We have discussed it,” Shanahan told reporters. “I’ve talked to Sherm about it, too. Sherm is always a possibility.”

San Francisco also lost another player due to injury in running back Raheem Mostert, who left with a knee injury and did not return.

Denver Broncos
Receiver Jerry Jeudy suffered a right high ankle sprain and was carted off the field during the third quarter of his team’s 27-13 road victory over the New York Giants. According to reports, X-rays were negative for Jeudy’s injury.

Washington Football Team
Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will have an MRI on Monday to determine the full extent of a hip injury he suffered during the second quarter of his team’s 20-16 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. Fitzpatrick had to leave the game and did not return.

Los Angeles Chargers
Right tackle Bryan Bulaga (back) and cornerback Nasir Adderley (shoulder) suffered injuries in the game against the Washington Football Club that forced them off the field. Neither player returned to the game.

New York Jets
Left tackle Mekhi Becton suffered what is believed to be an MCL knee sprain during the third quarter of his team’s loss to the Carolina Panthers. Becton was helped to the sideline by trainers and carted to the locker room for further evaluation.

New Orleans Saints
Cornerback Marshon Lattimore, who reportedly agreed to a five-year, $97.6 million extension over the weekend, suffered a right thumb injury that forced him to miss some time in the second half of his team’s 38-3 victory over the Green Bay Packers. Lattimore returned to the game with a cast on his hand and will reportedly be week-to-week as he recovers.

Seattle Seahawks
Oft-injured running back Rashaad Penny suffered a left calf injury early in his team’s 28-16 victory over the Indianapolis Colts the forced the San Diego State product to leave the game. Penny did not return.

Mostert, 28, made eight starts and rushed for 521 yards and two touchdowns. He added 16 receptions for 156 yards and one score.

The 49ers (5-9), who have been eliminated from the playoff picture, face the Arizona Cardinals (8-6) on Saturday in Glendale, Ariz.

49ers ready to active CB Sherman, RB Mostert

The San Francisco 49ers will add cornerback Richard Sherman and running backs Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr. to the active roster on Saturday, coach Kyle Shanahan said Friday.

All three players are currently on injured reserve. Sherman sustained a calf injury in Week 1 while Mostert and Wilson are both sidelined with ankle injuries.

“We’ll get them on the roster tomorrow,” Shanahan said of the trio amid the hope they can play Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. “They got better each day, we’ll put them on the active roster and they’ll be questionable going into the game.”

Mostert, a postseason force as the 49ers reached the Super Bowl last season, leads the team with 303 rushing yards despite playing in just four games.

Another dose of good news is that receiver Deebo Samuel (hamstring) will be back on the field. He has missed the past three games but practiced in full on Friday.

San Francisco ruled out four players: running back Tevin Coleman (knee), guard Tom Compton (concussion), linebacker Demetrius Flannigan-Fowles (hamstring) and cornerback K’Waun Williams (ankle).

Defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list on Friday and is listed as questionable. Linebackers Dre Greenlaw and Azeez Al-Shaair and tight end Jordan Reed are all listed as questionable due to illness.

Offensive tackle Trent Williams could be removed from the COVID-19 list prior to Sunday’s game. Shanahan termed it as an “outside chance.”

49ers CB Williams suspended two games for PED violation

San Francisco 49ers cornerback K’Waun Williams was suspended for two games by the NFL on Tuesday for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.

Depending on the status of an ankle injury, the earliest Williams will be eligible to play after the suspension is when the 49ers host the Washington Football Team on Dec. 13.

Williams wasn’t expected to play in San Francisco’s next two games after suffering a high ankle sprain against the Green Bay Packers on Nov. 5.

The 29-year-old Williams has 14 tackles and one sack in six games (three starts) this season.

The 49ers also opened the 21-day practice window for running backs Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr. — both are on injured reserve after sustaining ankle injuries. It is possible Mostert could play against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.

Mostert has a team-best 303 rushing yards despite playing in just four games. Wilson has 163 yards rushing in six games.

49ers’ Mostert (ankle) out against Saints

San Francisco running back Raheem Mostert will miss Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints, as he’ll remain on injured reserve with a high ankle sprain, 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday.

Mostert could return as early as Nov. 29, when the 49ers travel to play the Rams in Los Angeles. The 49ers have a bye next week.

Mostert landed on IR after suffering his injury in Week 6 against the Rams. The injury halted what had been a stellar start to the season for Mostert, who had 453 yards, including 303 rushing, and two touchdowns.

With Tevin Coleman (knee) also expected to miss this week, Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty will likely continue to split time in the backfield until Mostert’s return.

49ers place RB Mostert (ankle) on IR

The San Francisco 49ers placed running back Raheem Mostert on injured reserve Saturday due to a sprained left ankle.

Mostert must miss at least three games before he’s eligible to return.

The postseason hero from last season missed two games earlier this season with a different ankle injury.

Mostert has rushed for 303 yards and one touchdown on 51 carries and also has 11 receptions for 150 yards and one score this season.

Mostert etched his name into team lore in January when he rushed for a franchise-record 220 yards and scored four touchdowns as the 49ers pummeled the Green Bay Packers 37-20 in the NFC Championship Game.

Jerick McKinnon (211 rushing yards, four total touchdowns) will be the team’s lead running back for Sunday’s game against the New England Patriots.

San Francisco also activated safeties Johnathan Cyprien and Jared Mayden from the practice squad. Receiver Jauan Jennings was placed on the practice squad injured reserve list.

The 49ers activated Cyprien and Mayden because starting safeties Jaquiski Tartt (groin) and Jimmie Ward (quadriceps) will miss Sunday’s game.
