San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert’s season is over. His knee injury originally was supposed to keep him out only eight weeks, but Mostert decided he needed season-ending surgery.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news via Twitter on Tuesday.
And with RB Raheem Mostert announcing today that he is out for the season with a knee injury he sustained vs. Detroit, the 49ers now are signing former Lions’ RB Kerryon Johnson to their practice squad, per his agent @DrewJRosenhaus.

Mostert requested a trade from the 49ers in July of 2020 before getting a new deal and withdrawing his request. He was placed on injured reserve twice last season, playing in only eight total games and rushing for only 521 yards.
In his only 2021 appearance, Mostert rushed twice for 20 total yards and did not catch a single pass in the 49ers’ victory over the Detroit Lions. Now, he will yet again sit out multiple games with injury in the second year since signing his first big contract.
