The San Francisco 49ers once again will be forced to reconfigure their plans in light of a significant long-term injury.

Starting running back Raheem Mostert announced Tuesday he would undergo season-ending knee surgery.

After just his second carry of Sunday's 41-33 win over the Detroit Lions game, Mostert went to the sideline during the 49ers' second series. He did not return to the game and was replaced by sixth-round rookie Elijah Mitchell, who rushed for 104 yards on 19 carries.

  Ravens QB Lamar Jackson: Two late fumbles that helped Raiders win 'ticked me off' The Baltimore Ravens looked to be in command for most of their season opener against the Las Vegas Raiders. Two Lamar Jackson fumbles changed that.Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, the 2019 NFL MVP, had the ball in his hands with a seven-point lead early in the fourth quarter, but his fumble set up a Las Vegas Raiders touchdown that tied the game. It wouldn't be the last time in the night that a giveaway would prove costly.

Mostert said he believes the surgery will give him "the best possibility at coming back 110%."

"I'm gutted," Mostert said in a message posted to Twitter. "This sucks! This is obviously not what I worked so hard for. I wish more than anything I could be out there on the field with my brothers!!!

"Thank you or your support in our decision. I'M FAR FROM DONE!"
