Dr. Robert Anderson has finished the surgery on Deebo Samuel, and it sounds like the procedure went well, according to David Lombardi of The Athletic.

The San Francisco 49ers wide receiver suffered a Jones fracture in his left foot on Tuesday during a player-organized practice at the Brentwood Academy, just outside Nashville, Tennessee.


That's good news for Samuel, who will now start his road to recovery.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network initially reported that the receiver would miss 12 to 16 weeks. Samuel, however, sounded more optimistic, saying on social media Thursday that he expects to be back in 10 weeks and in time for the start of the regular season.

That could very well be the case, should there be no complications after the surgery. As 49ers fans know too well, wide receiver Trent Taylor suffered a similar injury last year, and ensuing complications, including an infection, sidelined him for the entire season.

Deebo Samuel and Brock Purdy are why the 49ers can afford to pay Brandon Aiyuk

By David Bonilla

It's evident that the San Francisco 49ers engaged in long-term financial planning. Much discussion has centered around the feasibility of the team committing significant financial resources to two wide receivers, Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel. Some skeptics question the wisdom of such heavy investment in a single position, especially considering that the 49ers handed Samuel a substantial three-year extension merely two years ago. Adding complexity to this debate is the impending contract extension for quarterback Brock Purdy, positioning him to become the highest-paid player on the team. He will likely even become one of the NFL's highest-paid players. Where he ranks in average salary will depend upon whether he can replicate the stellar performance of his Pro Bowl 2023

NFL exec: Draft could impact 49ers' contract talks with Brandon Aiyuk

By David Bonilla

Last week, San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch disclosed that the team was actively negotiating with wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk to reach a contract extension. However, a report from Mike Garafolo of NFL Network indicated that the two parties were "not close" to reaching an agreement. No one expects a deal to get done before the NFL Draft, which kicks off later this month. Historically, this 49ers' front office has tended to secure significant contract extensions later in the offseason, closer to training camp. That was the case with tight end George Kittle in 2020, linebacker Fred Warner in 2021, and wide receiver Deebo Samuel in 2022. Last year, defensive end Nick Bosa didn't ink
