Mostert rushed 29 times for 220 yards and four touchdowns while also catching two passes for six yards in Sunday's 37-20 win over Green Bay in the NFC Championship Game.
The 49ers' offensive line opened up gaping holes in the Packers' defensive front, and Mostert hit nearly every one of them for big chunks of yardage en route to a historic stat line. The 27-year-old's 220 rushing yards set a new playoff record for San Francisco and ranks second amongst all playoff rushers in the Super-Bowl era. Tevin Coleman took the reigns as the "hot hand" against the Vikings last weekend, but he went down to injury in the second quarter and gave Mostert an even larger share of touches in the second half. San Francisco has two weeks to heal up before taking on the Chiefs in the Super Bowl, but the latter feels like a lock to at least begin the contest as the team's primary back even if Coleman is ready to suit up.
Mostert (calf) practiced in full Wednesday, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Mostert tended to a calf cramp near the end of the 49ers' divisional-round victory against the Vikings, requiring an IV in the aftermath. He claimed no concerns about the issue at the time, and his listing on Wednesday's injury report confirms as much. While he may work behind Tevin Coleman (elbow) yet again Sunday versus the Packers, Mostert shouldn't be lacking for touches, as he's averaged 13.7 for 84.3 yards from scrimmage per game while scoring seven touchdowns over the last six contests.
Mostert (calf) is in line to practice fully Wednesday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Mostert was knocked out late during this past Saturday's divisional-round win against the Vikings. Afterward, he termed his injury as a calf cramp and required an IV as a course of treatment. Assuming Mostert gets through this week unscathed, he seems poised to serve as the change-of-pace option to Tevin Coleman on Sunday against the Packers. Behind Coleman's 22 rushes for 105 yards, Mostert managed 12 carries for 58 yards in the 49ers' playoff opener.
Mostert told Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com after Saturday's win against the Vikings that he exited in the fourth quarter due to a cramp in his calf.
According to Mostert, he was treated with an IV and added that he dealt with "some sickness" during the week. Niners injury reports prior to the game didn't mention his name at all, but in any case he expects to be fine moving forward. On Saturday, Mostert took a back seat to Tevin Coleman (22 carries for 105 yards) out of the backfield but still contributed 58 yards on 12 rushes and recovered a muffed punt.
Mostert suffered a calf injury during Saturday's divisional-round game against the Vikings, Keiana Martin of the 49ers' official site reports.
Considering he picked up the issue in the fourth quarter, Mostert is unlikely to make his presence felt again Saturday. Prior to his departure, he had 12 carries for 58 yards and recovered a muffed punt. Meanwhile, Tevin Coleman returned to a lead-back role, with more than 100 yards on the ground.
