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.

There hasn't been a bigger breakout from a receiver in the NFL than what the 49ers have seen from Deebo Samuel this season. He's been that special. Samuel currently is 2nd in the NFL in receiving yards with 548, trailing only Davante Adams, who has 579 yards, through the first five games of the season. Samuel's impact has been felt from the get-go as he was Jimmy Garoppolo's go-to receiver in Week 1 against the Lions, where the third-year star caught nine passes for 189 yards. Samuel, who was taken 36th overall in the 2019 NFL Draft, had an injury-plagued sophomore season, where he produced only 391 yards over seven games, after an impressive rookie year, where he caught 57 passes for 802 yards and added 159 more yards on the

George Kittle was not able to practice last week. Despite being listed as "doubtful," there remained hope that the San Francisco 49ers tight end might be able to play this past Sunday in rookie quarterback Trey Lance's first NFL start. "Everything's focused on this Sunday, and George is working his tail off to be there," general manager John Lynch said last week. "If not, it's nice that we do have a bye, and we're hopeful that time can allow him to heal enough to really lick this thing and put it behind us so he can get back in there at practice." Kittle won't return after the bye against the Indianapolis Colts. He won't return for the next game,
