The 49ers are getting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo back in the lineup against the Dolphins on Sunday and they’re set to have another offensive starter back on the field as well.

Running back Raheem Mostert joined Garoppolo in getting hurt during a Week Two win over the Jets, although he suffered a knee injury while Garoppolo hurt his ankle. Mostert resumed practicing this week and drew a questionable listing on Friday’s injury report.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Mostert is expected to play. Jerick McKinnon and Jeff Wilson would be the other backs for the 49ers.

The 49ers are also expected to have wide receiver Deebo Samuel on the field. Samuel missed practice on Thursday and Friday due to an illness.

  1. The 49ers have played poorly thus far at home.. Their O line has neither pass protected or run blocked well the last two games.. Miami is young and comes off a very competitive performance vs one of the top 5 teams in the NFL and arguably the MVP in QB Russell Wilson.. So recent defensive muscle memory should help them vs the 49ers..

    Tremendous pressure on Garoppolo coming off injury to perform.. Tack on a Niner defense plagued with injuries and you have the ingredients for an upset. The best 49er scenario would be to get off to a fast start offensively vs Miami.. If not and let them hang around and all bets are off going into the 4th Q..

  2. Even with the injuries Miami still loses. Mostert is back so I’m way more comfortable now than with worthless McKinnon starting. Mostert will keep the defense honest and Jimmy G will be able to finally pass the ball to starting WR’s, instead of backups.

    The 49ers front office needs to make changes. Right now it’s like they are copying off of the Trent Baalke blueprint in signing and drafting injury prone players. This is a recipe for disaster as you all have seen this season.

  3. 49er fans crying already. You’re getting beat down by the Fins with their number 1 pick on the bench.

    Time to pack it up and wait for the draft. Maybe there will be a real QB available.
