  49ers | Raheem Mostert likely going on IR    Mon Oct 19, 06:44 PM

San Francisco 49ers RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) suffered a high ankle sprain during the Week 6 game and likely will be placed on the Reserve/Injured list, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.

Footballguys view: Mostert has a high ankle sprain and those take quite a bit of time to heal properly. If he's on the IR list then Mostert will have to miss three weeks before he's eligible to return. The 49ers could turn to Jeff Wilson and JaMycal Hasty while Mostert is out. They also have Jerick McKinnon to serve as a big-play back in their 'hot hand' RBBC.

  49ers | Jimmy Garoppolo pulled at halftime    Sun Oct 11, 05:51 PM

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo was benched at halftime of the Week 5 game against the Miami Dolphins. He completed 7-of-17 passes for 77 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in the first half. QB C.J. Beathard replaced him.

Footballguys view: Garoppolo was falling apart at the end of the half. The team might believe he showed he wasn't ready physically or that leaving him in would do damage mentally, but either way they don't think Garoppolo should be out there. A big division matchup is up next vs. the Rams and Garoppolo should be out there, but one wonders about how long his leash is now.
