49ers-Eagles Injury Report: Deebo Samuel, George Kittle practice while Jimmy Garoppolo doesn’t

Sep 30, 2020 at 3:39 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 4 contest against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) was among the 49ers who did not practice. The hope is to get him out there on Thursday or Friday to gauge whether or not he can play on Sunday.

Dee Ford (back) did not practice and head coach Kyle Shanahan said the defensive end is expected to land on injured reserve later this week. Tight end Jordan Reed (knee) will also land on injured reserve this week.

The good news is that Deebo Samuel returned to practice. It has been just over three months since the wide receiver suffered a Jones fracture in his left foot during a player-organized practice in Tennessee. He was placed on injured reserve before Week 1 and can be activated to the 53-man roster at any point going forward.

"He's healthy, so we just want to see him out there and get back in the swing of playing football," Shanahan said before practice. "It's been a while since he has. I know he's been working hard on his own with football and everything with our trainers and everyone else with the rehab.

"We just need to see him go through three days, and what type of shape he's in. And if he can protect himself, he'll be out there."

Tight end George Kittle (knee) returned to practice last week but was limited and eventually ruled out against the New York Giants. He was "full go" during the 49ers' first practice of the week.

"He's full go today," Shanahan said of Kittle. "I think we'll always be smart with him. We're not just going to throw him in with his normal reps and everything, but he's full go. He'll be involved in it all and I'm excited to see him out there going."

Below are Wednesday's practice participation reports for both the 49ers and Eagles, which were provided by the 49ers Communications staff.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo spoke with reporters after the team's 24-16 win over the Los Angeles Rams. Here is everything he had to say. Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. I know you guys were confident that you'd be able to bounce back, but being able to actually go out and do it, what do you think you learned about yourselves over the last week and coming away with the win tonight? "It was really just about coming into this game, you could feel in the locker room throughout the entire week, it was a different mindset that everyone had. The last couple of weeks before this, no one liked that feeling. It wasn't who we are as a team and I think this week it just kind of

49ers rookie Brandon Aiyuk explains how George Kittle and Deebo Samuel make him better

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk has registered 280 receiving yards and a touchdown on 20 receptions. He also has four rushing attempts for 69 yards and two scores. That type of versatility is reminiscent of a talented first-year player from last season — Deebo Samuel. Aiyuk owes a lot to his teammate, Samuel. He, along with All-Pro tight end George Kittle, pushes the rookie to be a better player. They don't do it solely with words, though. They do it through action. Aiyuk joined 95.7 The Game on Wednesday and explained how Kittle and Samuel encourage him to fight harder when he's on the football field. "I think playing with those two guys, especially, and you watch them catch the ball and just go get every single yard and just

49ers-Patriots: Bill Belichick says George Kittle 'doesn't have any weak points,' opts not to discuss Jimmy Garoppolo trade again

Jimmy Garoppolo played his first three-and-a-half NFL seasons with the New England Patriots under coach Bill Belichick. The Patriots traded him to the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. Garoppolo became the starter for the 49ers, signed a five-year contract during the ensuing offseason, and last season led the team to a Super Bowl appearance. Belichick, while speaking with 49ers reporters via a conference call on Monday, was asked what he's seen from Garoppolo's development since the trade. "Well, we haven't played him since then," Belichick responded. "I haven't really studied him, but we'll take a close look. But I mean, it just looks like about what I thought it would like. I mean, he's a quality player. The 49ers gave him a high contract that, you
