Raheem Mostert has had a rough going with injuries which NFL fans have not taken lightly. Devon Mostert, his wife, sounded off on her Instagram recently.
The 49ers running back is one of the most explosive players in the league when he’s on the field, but as of late, he’s had some trouble with that, suffering long-term injuries each of the last two years.
After missing eight games to knee ankle injuries last season, 49ers fans were excited to have Mostert back for this year. Unfortunately, that return lasted all of one year as Mostert is back on the injury reserve list.

Devon Mostert Is Upset Her Husband Raheem Mostert Is Receiving Death Threats
Obviously whenever a player goes down with an injury it’s devastating for both the players and fans. It’s heartbreaking to see some of your favorite people go down, and oftentimes, it can get incredibly emotional.
On the flip side, there are also people who see injuries as something to degrade the player with, especially if that player has had a history with getting injured, like Raheem Mostert.
These feelings often come out of people picking someone for fantasy, and it’s led to a lot hateful comments from fans who really don’t care for what Mostert might be going through.
Reminder: The guys on your fantasy team are real people.

It’s touching to see Devon step up and defend her husband, but at the same time, she shouldn’t have to. We as NFL fans need to do better when it comes to reacting to injuries and really think things through before we act on them.
