Mostert (knee) announced Wednesday via his personal Twitter account that he's "close to 100 percent" healthy.
EDGE Analysis
Mostert also said his "rehab is going great." While the veteran running back hasn't been a participant in spring activities, it does appear that he's nearing a return to on-field work. It would be encouraging if Mostert is available for the start of training camp late July, but an exact timetable for his full return hasn't been disclosed. In any case, once Mostert is fully recovered from the surgery he underwent to address chipped cartilage in his left knee, he stands to join Chase Edmonds and Sony Michel atop Miami's revamped running back depth chart.

Mostert (knee) is expected to be ready for Week 1, though the Dolphins plan to be cautious with him this offseason, Marcel Louis-Jacques of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
In other words, Mostert won't participate in spring practices, which was probably to be expected. He played only nine games over the past two seasons, with his most recent health issue being chipped cartilage in his knee that required October surgery to address. The 30-year-old is part of a rebuilt, veteran backfield that also added Chase Edmonds and Sony Michel this offseason, while Myles Gaskin and Salvon Ahmed are returning players of note. Mostert should compete for carries on early downs once he's healthy.

Mostert (knee) said Monday that he's "way ahead of schedule" in the rehab process after October surgery, David Furones of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
EDGE Analysis
The surgery addressed chipped cartilage in his left knee, and Mostert now has played only nine games over the past two seasons. The Dolphins do expect him to be healthy before Week 1, with Mostert joining the team on a one-year contract shortly after fellow running back Chase Edmonds got a two-year deal. Mostert has the benefit of familiarity with new Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel, formerly the 49ers' offensive coordinator, but Edmonds still is the better bet to lead Miami's backfield in touches. The team also has 2021 holdovers Myles Gaskin, Salvon Ahmed and Patrick Laird on the offseason roster.

The Dolphins and Mostert agreed to a contract Wednesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
Not only is he reuniting with new coach Mike McDaniel, Mostert will join a backfield led by newcomer Chase Edmonds and Myles Gaskin. First, though, Mostert will need to complete his recovery from October surgery to address chipped cartilage in his left knee. According to a recent report from Adam Schefter of ESPN, Mostert is expected to be healthy by Week 1 of next season, at which point he'll look to avoid the injury bug that limited him to nine appearances between the past two campaigns. When he's been able to suit up in his career, he's averaged 5.7 yards per carry and scored 14 TDs on 320 career touches.

Mostert (knee) is on track to make a full recovery by the start of the 2022 season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
EDGE Analysis
Mostert's recovery process is exceeding expectations, per Schefter, though the details of his exact timetable remain undisclosed. The soon-to-be 30-year-old will become an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year, and given that injuries have limited Mostert to just nine appearances across the last two seasons, it remains to be seen whether teams will view him as a potential starting option on the open market. Mostert underwent surgery to address chipped cartilage in the meniscus of his left knee Oct. 12.

The 49ers shifted Mostert (knee) from the reserve/COVID-19 list to injured reserve Tuesday.
EDGE Analysis
Since getting hurt Week 1, Mostert underwent a procedure Oct. 12 to address chipped cartilage in his left knee, was cleared to walk without crutches Dec. 12 and spent Jan. 3-18 on the COVID-19 list. There's no potential for the seven-year pro to return from IR this season, but he appears as if he'll be healthy at some point between the end of the 49ers' season (whenever that may be) and the offseason program. In the meantime, rookie sixth-rounder Elijah Mitchell will continue to lead the backfield.

Mostert (knee) has been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.
EDGE Analysis
Mostert already was on season-ending injured reserve due to a knee issue, and the running back is slated to shift back to it once he clears the league's COVID-19 protocols.

Mostert (knee) announced Friday that he's been cleared to walk without the aid of crutches, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
EDGE Analysis
It's an early milestone in the recovery process for Mostert, who underwent surgery Oct. 12 to address chipped cartilage in the meniscus of his left knee. Mostert is without a clear timeline to complete his rehab from the unique knee procedure, but he's already ruled himself out from playing again this season and is turning his focus to getting healthy for OTAs. Scheduled to become a free agent this spring, Mostert will likely need full medical clearance from doctors before any team offers him a contract.

San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan said Mostert will undergo surgery Tuesday to address chipped cartilage in his left knee, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.
EDGE Analysis
Mostert announced Sept. 14 that he would require a season-ending knee procedure, but he had to wait around a month for doctors to find the correct donor components needed for the operation. Assuming the surgery goes as planned, Mostert is expected to be back to full health ahead of the 2022 season. The 29-year-old running back is set to become a free agent this spring.

The 49ers placed Mostert (knee) on injured reserve Tuesday.
EDGE Analysis
San Francisco officially removed Mostert from its 53-man roster a few hours after the running back announced he would undergo season-ending surgery to address the cartilage damage to his knee he sustained Sunday in the 49ers' season-opening win over the Lions. Mostert expects to be back to 100 percent health for the start of the 2022 campaign, but he could be suiting up for a different team, as he'll become a free agent during the upcoming spring. Meanwhile, the 49ers are expected to give Elijah Mitchell the first crack at the No. 1 role out of the backfield, with Trey Sermon and JaMycal Hasty on hand in complementary roles. Additionally, San Francisco signed veteran Kerryon Johnson to its practice squad Tuesday, and he could eventually factor into the backfield equation at some point.
