Raheem Mostert limps off field late in 2nd quarter, returns in 3rd quarter then ruled OUT

49ers running back Raheem Mostert will be a name to track coming into the third quarter after a big first half.

UPDATE: Mostert has been ruled OUT for the rest of the game early in the third quarter. Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty will carry the load the rest of the way.

3rd quarter update: Mostert is back in for the team’s first drive of the third quarter. He left after a play and was seen limping around the bench. Michele Tafoya reported he injured is left ankle and got some tape on it. His status will be something to track.

Post-halftime update: The Rams are opening the third quarter with the ball so we won’t see the 49ers for a bit. The good news is Mostert was spotted on the sideline wearing his helmet, per Jennifer Chan. Often times a player will not have his helmet if he is hurt.

The San Francisco 49ers lead the Los Angeles Rams 21-6 at halftime of their Week 6 matchup, but they may or may not have suffered a notable injury late in the second quarter. Running back Raheem Mostert limped off the field and was seen speaking to the medical staff while sitting on a cooler, per Jennifer Lee Chan. He was seen walking off the field at halftime without any apparent limp.

The half came to the end without word on any injury, so we’ll be left to wait for some word coming back for the third quarter. And this of course is assuming this is something more than a quick sprain he gets over quickly.

Mostert is having a huge game halfway through. He has rushed 16 times for 64 yards and caught two passes for 11 yards. He’s bulldozed over Rams defenders and made some big plays to move the sticks. He has yet to find the end zone, but he is an integral part of the game plan as the 49ers look to get back on track.
