Injuries have been a common theme for the 49ers this season, and their running back room has been constantly revolving due to injuries. However, it looks like San Francisco could get Mostert and Wilson back in the backfield for Week 12.
Mostert just had his second stint on the injured reserve this season after suffering a high-ankle sprain in Week 6 against the Los Angeles Rams. Ironically enough, he would face the Rams this week if he were determined to be fit to play for the 49ers.
In the four games that Raheem Mostert has been active in this 2020 campaign, he has rushed for 303 yards and a touchdown. Given that, he would be a welcome addition to an offense that is shorthanded due to injuries.
On the other hand, Jeff Wilson Jr. has also been dealing with a high-ankle sprain, which he sustained in Week 7 versus the New England Patriots. Wilson was one of the running backs filling in for Mostert amid his absence.
Similar to Mostert and Wilson, K’Waun Williams was also on the mend with a high-ankle sprain. But while he continues to recover, Williams will be suspended for two games due to violating the league’s PED policy.
Despite the unfortunate news with Williams, the 49ers could get some much-needed help on offense with Mostert and Wilson being activated from injured reserve.
