Sports

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (KRON) – The San Francisco 49ers just can’t escape injuries this season.

On Monday head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters and stated running back Raheem Mostert would likely be placed on IR for a few weeks after suffering a high ankle sprain.

“We’ll see how it progresses most likely IR,” Coach said.

Mostert injured his ankle in the first half of the game against the Los Angeles Rams during Sunday night football.

When asked about the running back situation going forward, Shanahan is hopeful to get a few players back from IR soon.

“Hopefully Jeff returns this week. He had a tight calf last week so hopefully he’ll be good to go on Wednesday we’ll see. Tevin I think will be a long shot. I know he’s eligible to come back this week, have a feeling it’ll be another week but we’ll wait and see. Hold out hope for the end of the week,” Shanahan said.
