Mostert posted a message on social media to announce his decision to have the season-ending procedure.

"After consulting with multiple doctors and weighing my options, I will be having season-ending surgery to repair my knee.

"This gives me, without a doubt in my mind, the best possibility at coming back 110%. I have always come back stronger and I will this time too! I have faith in myself, my doctors, my support system, my team, and God. He makes no mistakes!!!

"I'm gutted. 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 for your support in our decision. I'm far from done!"
