49ers RB Mostert returns to action; Samuel also active
San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert is returning to action Sunday against the Miami Dolphins after missing two games with a knee injury.
The 49ers also announced that receiver Deebo Samuel is active for Sunday’s game. Samuel was listed as questionable after getting sick this week.
49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is also back this week after missing two games with a sprained ankle.
Cornerback Byron Jones is back in the lineup for Miami after missing the past two games with groin and Achilles injuries.
New York Giants safety and punt returner Jabrill Peppers is active against Dallas after missing a game with an ankle injury that limited him in practice all week. Peppers was listed as questionable.
The Cowboys are getting cornerback Anthony Brown back after he missed the minimum of three games by going on injured reserve with a rib issue. Brown was injured in practice the week after the opener.
Safety Adrian Colbert (neck) is active for New York.
Dallas is now without three projected starters on the offensive line with seven-time Pro Bowl left tackle Tyron Smith and center Joe Looney going on IR this week. Smith is out for the season with a neck injury that is requiring surgery. Looney injured his right knee on the first play last week against Cleveland and will miss at least two more games.
The Giants will be without Oshane Ximines after putting the linebacker on IR with a shoulder injury.
The Cleveland Browns will be without starting safety Karl Joseph in their game against the Indianapolis Colts. Joseph hurt his hamstring in practice Thursday and had been listed as questionable. Ronnie Harrison, acquired last month in a trade form Jacksonville, will make his first start for Cleveland. Defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi was ruled out earlier this week with an abdominal injury.
Colts linebacker Darius Leonard is out with a groin injury. He didn’t practice this week.
