49ers place WR Quinton Patton on IR

Dec 20, 2016 at 10:38 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers announced today that they have placed WR Quinton Patton on injured reserve, ending his season. Patton was one of three players that 49ers head coach Chip Kelly said would be lost for the remainder of the season. To fill Patton's spot on the roster, the team has activated WR DeAndre Smelter from the practice squad.


Patton left Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons with a foot injury in the second quarter and was carted to the locker room. The team was already without starting wide receiver Torrey Smith, who suffered a concussion the week before against the New York Jets. Patton was the team's other starting wide receiver.

Selected out of Louisiana Tech in the 4th round of the 2013 NFL Draft, Patton was having his best season. He played in all 14 games for the 49ers, starting each one. During those games, Patton had 37 catches for 408 yards. Both are career highs.

Patton joins LB Nick Bellore and TE Blake Bell, who were both placed on injured reserve yesterday. All three injured players were hurt on Sunday in Atlanta.

The San Francisco 49ers have announced that the team has placed Deebo Samuel on injured reserve. The move will force the second-year wide receiver to miss at least three games under the NFL's new injured-reserve rules, meaning the earliest he would be available is for Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Samuel has not practiced with the team since suffering a Jones fracture in June. Head coach Kyle Shanahan had hoped that the receiver would be available for the team's Week 1 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, but the 49ers never cleared Samuel to practice this week. Shanahan was asked on Friday why San Francisco had not yet placed Samuel on injured reserve. "Because we believed he had a good chance to play this week," Shanahan

The San Francisco 49ers were the lone NFC West squad that failed to win its 2020 opener. Kyle Shanahan's team lost 24-20 to the Arizona Cardinals at Levi's Stadium. Earlier on Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks beat the Atlanta Falcons 38-25. Later, the Los Angeles Rams beat the Dallas Cowboys 20-17 in the first game at SoFi Stadium — albeit without fans to watch. That means the 49ers start their 2020 season, which the team was so eager to begin as it attempts to make amends from February's Super Bowl loss, in last place within the NFC West.
