Mostert spent the remainder of the first half on the bench without his helmet on while Mitchell and his fellow runner JaMycal Hasty They were in charge of carrying the load.
Mostert comes from a injury plagued season, playing in eight games last year after a knee and ankle sprain cost him two and six games, respectively. He averaged 5.01 yards per carry in all eight games he played in 2020.
