49ers-Cardinals: Deebo Samuel misses another practice, making his availability for Sunday unlikely

Sep 11, 2020 at 12:40 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers got one wide receiver back this week, as rookie Brandon Aiyuk returned to practice. It doesn't look like they will be as lucky with another injured wideout.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch were hopeful to have second-year receiver Deebo Samuel on the field with Aiyuk on Sunday. That now seems unlikely after Samuel wasn't out on the practice field with his teammates on Friday. He has not practiced with the team since suffering a Jones fracture in June.


Samuel had been confident that he would be available for Week 1. However, missing three days of practice leading to a game typically means that player will not play, and that may be the case for the second-year receiver.

Samuel had an impressive rookie campaign last season. The second-round pick hauled in 57 passes for 802 yards with three touchdowns while carrying the football 14 times for 159 rushing yards with three more scores on the ground through 15 games and 11 starts.

Aiyuk was on the practice field for Friday's session, as was center Ben Garland. Shanahan noted that both would be a game-day decision.

"And Aiyuk, the fact that he got out yesterday will give him another chance to get two days in," Shanahan said on KNBR Friday morning. "Aiyuk got at least a couple of weeks in camp (before his injury), so he has a better chance at least of being there."

San Francisco will release official statuses for Sunday's game within the next couple of hours.

49ers-Saints: Still no sign of Deebo Samuel at practice, Kendrick Bourne returns

Reporters did not see San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel during today's practice, which is the last of this week before the team boards a plane bound for New Orleans. That means the second-year wideout did not practice at all this week, making his availability for Sunday's game against the Saints very unlikely. Samuel is attempting to return from a hamstring injury suffered during the 49ers' Week 7 win over the New England Patriots. General manager John Lynch had hoped Samuel might be able to get onto the practice field today but noted that his availability for this weekend remained a long shot. "I think the final challenge or opportunity for Deebo to show that he can go is out here on Friday,"

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR this morning, as he does every other week, and provided several updates to the team's receivers group. The 49ers were undermanned last week against the Green Bay Packers, which contributed to the 34-17 defeat. Quick summary: Deebo Samuel will try to practice on Friday. His status remains uncertain.
