Mostert's wife, Devon, shared the news in her Instagram story, giving followers and fans yet another powerful reason to take the COVID pandemic seriously. Mostert was vaccinated prior to the season, proudly showing himself in the act of getting a shot in an Instagram post.

In Devon's story, she detailed the harrowing events that took place and thankfully announced that the family had returned home from the hospital. The full caption is as follows:

If you think COVID is a joke, this is our sweet G man in an ambulance today after I called 911 because he was lethargic, skin was gray, lips were purple, and had a 103.5° temperature. I'm crying even typing this... this is all SO SCARY. 💔😭
We are thankfully back home, but my family is very much in the thick of it. I'll update you more soon. But this is literally my CRY for you to take COVID seriously.

Mostert was placed on the COVID list on Monday, though his season had already come to an end after a knee injury.

Set to take on the lead running back role in San Francisco, Mostert only played for snaps — taking two carries for 20 yards — before his season came to an end. We're wishing the best for him and his family in this difficult situation.
