Player Outlook
Mostert followed Mike McDaniel to Miami, where he'll compete with Chase Edmonds and Sony Michel for touches once he's healthy. Because of Mostert's age, injury history, and the fact that the Dolphins don't know for sure that Mostert will be ready by Week 1, he should not be drafted until the double-digit rounds. If everything goes his way, Mostert has top-20 upside, especially in non-PPR.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Listed with starters on depth chart

    Mostert and Chase Edmonds both are listed with the first-string offense on Miami's initial preseason depth chart, after coach Mike McDaniel said Sunday that "competition is fierce" among the team's running backs, Jeff Kerr of CBS Sports reports. Edmonds got the biggest contract of the trio, but it's no secret that fellow offseason acquisitions Mostert and Sony Michel also are in the mix for key roles. Edmonds is the best pass catcher of the bunch, while Mostert is by far the fastest and Michel perhaps most adept working between the tackles. There's even some chance of a contribution from Myles Gaskin, the team's lead back for much of 2020 and 2021 under a different coaching staff. Mostert should have an advantage when it comes to scheme familiarity and terminology, considering McDaniel was the 49ers' run game coordinator from 2017 to 2020 and their offensive coordinator in 2021. Mostert was in San Francisco from late 2016 through 2021, though he missed nearly as many games as he played, including all but the season opener last year. He was cleared for the start of training camp after a lengthy rehab from a knee injury, and he recently shed his no-contact jersey, per Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Achieves medical clearance

    Mostert (knee) announced via his personal Twitter account Monday that he has received medical clearance. Mostert will take the field when Dolphins' veterans report for training camp Tuesday, which is a positive development as he works to return to 100 percent health by Week 1. The 30-year-old veteran stands to spend training camp competing with Sony Michel for work in what looks to be a developing backfield by committee, one which fellow newcomer Chase Edmonds is the presumed favorite to lead. Holdovers Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed look slated for depth roles, if they crack the final roster.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Close to full health

    Mostert (knee) announced Wednesday via his personal Twitter account that he's "close to 100 percent" healthy. Mostert also wrote that his "rehab is going great." While the veteran running back hasn't been a participant in the Dolphins' offseason program, he appears close to a return to on-field work. If Mostert is available for the start of training camp in late July, it would be an encouraging sign for his health, but an exact timetable for him to participate fully with the Dolphins isn't known. In any case, once Mostert is fully recovered from the surgery he underwent to address chipped cartilage in his left knee, he'll join Chase Edmonds and Sony Michel in Miami's revamped running back room.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Taking it slow

    Mostert (knee) is expected to be ready for Week 1, though the Dolphins plan to be cautious with him this offseason, Marcel Louis-Jacques of reports. In other words, Mostert won't participate in spring practices, which was probably to be expected. He played only nine games over the past two seasons, with his most recent health issue being chipped cartilage in his knee that required October surgery to address. The 30-year-old is part of a rebuilt, veteran backfield that also added Chase Edmonds and Sony Michel this offseason, while Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed are returning players of note. Mostert should compete for carries on early downs once he's healthy.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Says rehab is going well

    Mostert (knee) said Monday that he's "way ahead of schedule" in the rehab process after October surgery, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. The surgery addressed chipped cartilage in his left knee, and Mostert now has played only nine games over the past two seasons. The Dolphins do expect him to be healthy before Week 1, with Mostert joining the team on a one-year contract shortly after fellow running back Chase Edmonds got a two-year deal. Mostert has the benefit of familiarity with new Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel, formerly the 49ers' offensive coordinator, but Edmonds still is the better bet to lead Miami's backfield in touches. The team also has 2021 holdovers Myles Gaskin, Salvon Ahmed and Patrick Laird on the offseason roster.

  • Dolphins' Raheem Mostert: Moving on to South Beach

    The Dolphins and Mostert (knee) agreed to a one-year contract Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Not only is he reuniting with new head coach Mike McDaniel in Miami, but Mostert will also join a backfield led by newcomer Chase Edmonds and Myles Gaskin. First, though, Mostert will need to complete his recovery from October surgery to address chipped cartilage in his left knee. According to a recent report from Adam Schefter of ESPN, Mostert is expected to be healthy by Week 1 of next season, at which point he'll look to avoid the injury concerns that limited him to nine appearances between the past two campaigns. When he's been able to suit up in his career, he's averaged 5.7 yards per carry and has scored 14 touchdowns on 320 career touches.

  • 49ers' Raheem Mostert: Recovery going well

    Mostert (knee) is on track to make a full recovery by the start of the 2022 season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Mostert's recovery process is exceeding expectations, per Schefter, though the details of his exact timetable remain undisclosed. The soon-to-be 30-year-old will become an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year, and given that injuries have limited Mostert to just nine appearances across the last two seasons, it remains to be seen whether teams will view him as a potential starting option on the open market. Mostert underwent surgery to address chipped cartilage in the meniscus of his left knee Oct. 12.

  • 49ers' Raheem Mostert: Comes off COVID-19 list

    Mostert (knee) was shifted from the reserve/COVID-19 list to injured reserve Tuesday. Since getting hurt in Week 1, Mostert underwent an October procedure to address chipped cartilage in his left knee, was cleared to walk without crutches Dec. 12 and then spent much of January on the COVID-19 list. There's no chance the seven-year pro returns from IR this season, but he appears as if he'll be healthy at some point between the end of the 49ers' season (whenever that may be) and the offseason program. In the meantime, rookie sixth-rounder Elijah Mitchell will continue to lead the backfield.

  • 49ers' Raheem Mostert: Placed on COVID list

    Mostert (knee) has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Mostert already was on season-ending injured reserve due to a knee issue, and the running back is slated to shift back to it once he clears the league's COVID-19 protocols.

  • 49ers' Raheem Mostert: Ditches crutches

    Mostert (knee) announced Friday that he's been cleared to walk without the aid of crutches, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. It's an early milestone in the recovery process for Mostert, who underwent surgery Oct. 12 to address chipped cartilage in the meniscus of his left knee. Mostert is without a clear timeline to complete his rehab from the unique knee procedure, but he's already ruled himself out from playing again this season and is turning his focus to getting healthy for OTAs. Scheduled to become a free agent this spring, Mostert will likely need full medical clearance from doctors before any team offers him a contract.

  • 49ers' Raheem Mostert: Checks in for surgery

    Mostert will undergo surgery Tuesday to address chipped cartilage in his left knee, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports. Mostert announced Sept. 14 that he would require a season-ending knee procedure, but he had to wait around a month for doctors to find the correct donor components needed for the operation. Assuming the surgery goes as planned, Mostert is expected to be back to full health ahead of the 2022 season. The 29-year-old running back is set to become a free agent this spring.

  • 49ers' Raheem Mostert: Move to IR official

    Mostert (knee) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. San Francisco officially removed Mostert from its 53-man roster a few hours after the running back announced he would undergo season-ending surgery to address the cartilage damage in his knee he sustained Sunday. Mostert expects to be back to 100 percent health for the start of the 2022 campaign, but he could be suiting up for a different team, as he'll become a free agent during the upcoming spring. Meanwhile, the 49ers are expected to give Elijah Mitchell the first crack at the No. 1 role out of the backfield, with Trey Sermon and JaMycal Hasty on hand in complementary roles. Additionally, San Francisco signed veteran Kerryon Johnson to its practice squad Tuesday, and he could eventually factor into the backfield equation.

  • 49ers' Raheem Mostert: Getting surgery, season over

    Mostert announced Tuesday via his personal Twitter account that he will undergo season-ending knee surgery. Though 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan estimated Monday that Mostert would require an arthroscopic procedure and miss about eight weeks after sustaining chipped cartilage in his knee in the team's season-opening win over the Lions, the running back is instead electing to undergo what's believed to be a full meniscus repair, per Mike Garafolo of NFL Network. While the surgery will necessitate a longer recovery timeline, Mostert should have a brighter long-term health outlook than if he had returned in the second half of the season and continued to play through the knee issue. Expect the 49ers to officially place Mostert on season-ending injured reserve later this week, paving the way for Elijah Mitchell, Trey Sermon and JaMycal Hasty to lead the ground game.

  • 49ers' Raheem Mostert: Expected to miss eight weeks

    Mostert (knee) is expected to miss about eight weeks and will go on IR, Nick Wagoner of reports. Mostert exited Sunday's win over the Lions with a knee injury, which turns out to be chipped cartilage. Rookie sixth-round pick Elijah Mitchell took over for Mostert against Detroit and rushed for over 100 yards, so he'll likely lead San Francisco's backfield in Mostert's absence. JaMycal Hasty and rookie third-round pick Trey Sermon should also see additional opportunities while Mostert recovers.

  • 49ers' Raheem Mostert: Will not return to Sunday's game

    Mostert (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Lions, Keiana Martin of the 49ers' official site reports. The knee injury Mostert suffered in the first half of Sunday's game will prevent him from seeing any more action in Week 1, so Elijah Mitchell and JaMycal Hasty will split the carries for the remainder of the day. The extent of Mostert's injury is not yet known, but head coach Kyle Shanahan figures to provide some sort of update after the game concludes.

  • 49ers' Raheem Mostert: Questionable to return

    Mostert (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Lions, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic. This isn't a promising sign for the 49ers, as they're already quite thin in terms of depth at running back. Elijah Mitchell and JaMycal Hasty are expected to gain a bigger role if Mostert is unable to return to action in the contest, given that Trey Sermon is inactive Sunday.

  • 49ers' Raheem Mostert: Excels in start

    Mostert rushed seven times for 53 yards in Sunday's 34-10 preseason win over the Raiders. Mostert garnered all of San Francisco's running-back touches on its first offensive drive and was highly efficient with his opportunities. He then saw rookie Trey Sermon incorporated on the second series, and fellow tailbacks JaMycal Hasty and Wayne Gallman shine afterward. Although Sermon should factor prominently in the 49ers' backfield rotation, Mostert seems the most likely candidate to start Week 1 versus the Lions, which would give him good upside as the leader of an often dominant running scheme.

  • 49ers' Raheem Mostert: Not suiting up Sunday

    Mostert isn't slated to play in Sunday's preseason game at the Chargers, Nick Wagoner of reports. Despite coach Kyle Shanahan's assertion that the starters would log at least a quarter of work in preseason Week 2, Mostert won't be available to the 49ers offense Sunday. Mostert will be joined by rookie running backs Trey Sermon and Elijah Mitchell (hip) on the sideline, leaving the backfield to Wayne Gallman, JaMycal Hasty, Kyle Juszczyk and Josh Hokit.

  • 49ers' Raheem Mostert: Likely to suit up Sunday

    Mostert is in line to play in Sunday's preseason contest at the Chargers, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports. Coach Kyle Shanahan said after Friday's joint practice with the Chargers that 49ers starters will log "a quarter, a quarter and a half" in their second exhibition. As a result, it appears San Fran is set to have its dress rehearsal for the regular season Sunday. Mostert should get a lot of the backfield reps while the starters are on the field, yielding the occasional touch to Trey Sermon and perhaps even Wayne Gallman.

  • 49ers' Raheem Mostert: Not expected to play in opener

    Mostert is not expected to play in Saturday's preseason opener against the Chiefs, according to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle. Mostert's absence does not appear to be injury-related, as he has taken part in practice since training camp began. Injuries limited Mostert to just eight games in 2020, so expect the 49ers to take it easy with him during the preseason so he is good to go for Week 1.
