49ers injury news: Deebo Samuel ‘has a shot’ to start against Cardinals in Week 1, says John Lynch

Sep 6, 2020 at 11:35 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers activated Deebo Samuel from the non-football injury list on Saturday. The team remains optimistic that the second-year wide receiver will be available for its Week 1 contest next weekend against the Arizona Cardinals.

"He does have a shot," general manager John Lynch told reporters via a conference call on Sunday. "I know Tuesday morning, we're kind of having a summit with Dr. (Robert) Anderson, who did the surgery, (team surgeon) Doc (Tim) McAdams and our training staff to kind of take the latest look at the scans and whatnot to see exactly where he's at."

Samuel suffered a Jones fracture during a June player-organized practice in Tennessee. He has repeatedly expressed his determination to be ready for Week 1.

"I can tell you that Deebo has done a fantastic job," Lynch continued. "I think you all saw, one of the cool things now is these guys record everything they do, we got to see how hard Deebo was working. I'm a huge believer that when you get injured, and you're already in great shape, you tend to heal quicker.

"Deebo has continued that tremendous work ethic and has remained very positive, and upbeat, and resolute in his want to be back on the field right away. And that goes a long way.

"So, we're hopeful, but I don't have an answer (about his availability) because we don't know it yet."

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR on Thursday and provided a few injury updates. There wasn't a lot of new information provided, as we know where many of the injured Niners are right now. Jimmy Garoppolo is week-to-week with a high-ankle sprain but is fighting to get back on the football field. He has, however, missed two practices this week, which reduces his already slim chances of playing on Sunday against the New York Giants. George Kittle is being George Kittle and could get back on the field on Sunday, just two weeks after suffering an MCL sprain and bone bruise. "George has done a really good job, like he always does, attacking," Lynch said on the Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "... And like most gifted

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR on Friday morning and provided several injury updates. Among them was news that cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon has cleared the concussion protocol and will start in place of Richard Sherman this weekend against the New York Jets. Sherman was placed on short-term injured reserve this week and will miss at least the next three games. Lynch did note that his calf strain is unrelated to his previous Achilles injury. The general manager saw Sherman after the game and noted, "It wasn't pretty the way he was walking." That, along with discussions with Sherman, led the 49ers to sideline the All-Pro cornerback for a few games. Witherspoon will fill in for the veteran cornerback and play
