Raheem Mostert remains sidelined, Jerick McKinnon practicing in full in Week 4

The 49ers will probably be without their top back once again in Week 4. We break down what Raheem Mostert’s injury means for the depth chart.

Friday update: Mostert is not participating in the team’s Friday practice, and it’s safe to say he’ll be listed as out on the final injury report.

Thursday update: Mostert did not participate in the team’s Thursday practice and likely will be ruled out on Friday’s final injury report. Notably, Jerick McKinnon practiced in full for a second straight day. He injured his ribs in Week 3, but is on track to play on Sunday.

San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert remains sidelined in practice as the team opened its first Week 4 practice session. Mostert is not going to practice on Wednesday, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.

Mostert sprained his MCL in Week 2 against the Jets. He did not practice at all in Week 3, and there is no indication he’ll make progress on the practice field this week as the team prepares to face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football.

With Mostert out and Tevin Coleman on injured reserve, Jerick McKinnon and Jeff Wilson are the top two backs on the depth chart. McKinnon was the lead back in Week 3 against the Giants before a rib injury slowed him late. In the game, McKinnon had 77 total yards and a touchdown, while Wilson had 69 total yards and two touchdowns.

JaMycal Hasty is the third back and would get additional work if McKinnon was unable to go in Week 4.
