Deebo Samuel likely to miss next two games, Jeff Wilson headed to IR, says Kyle Shanahan

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Monday, the day after his team's dominant 33-6 road victory over the New England Patriots. Shanahan's squad didn't escape Gillette Stadium unscathed, however.

The coach provided the following injury updates.

  • Wide receiver Deebo Samuel suffered a hamstring strain and is likely to miss the next two games (Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers).
  • Running back Jeff Wilson Jr. suffered a high-ankle sprain. He is headed to injured reserve this week. Shanahan expects Wilson to miss about a month.
  • Wide receiver Richie James suffered an ankle sprain but is day-to-day.
  • Shanahan hopes Tevin Coleman (knee) can return from injured reserve this week. He called his status a "late-end-of-the-week decision."

Samuel exited Sunday's win over the New England Patriots in the fourth quarter with his 49ers leading by 24 points. The injury came on a play that saw the receiver take a one-yard toss from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and proceed to the 14-yard line, setting up kicker Robbie Gould for the 32-yard field goal.

Samuel finished the game with five catches for 65 yards and three carries for seven yards. He is in his second season with San Francisco.

"The physicality our receivers bring to the game, starting with Deebo, really helps our offense," Shanahan said. "We'll miss him when he's out, that's for sure."

San Francisco made Samuel a second-round draft pick out of South Carolina last year. The receiver has 16 catches for 185 yards and a touchdown while adding six carries for 14 rushing yards through four games this season. He missed the first three games while recovering from an offseason foot injury.

Wilson's injury came in the third quarter while rushing for his third touchdown of the game. He walked off the field with a slight limp and was then carted to the locker room for further tests.

Wilson finished the game with 112 rushing yards on 17 carries and two catches for eight yards. The undrafted free agent out of North Texas, now in his third NFL season, has 162 rushing yards and four rushing touchdowns on 38 carries and six receptions for 75 yards and another score through five games this season.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan provided several injury updates during a conference call this afternoon.

A surprising injury update was that running back Raheem Mostert will miss about eight weeks after sustaining some chipped knee cartilage. He exited the game in the first half and was replaced by rookie Elijah Mitchell. The 49ers spent two draft picks on running backs. In addition to Mitchell, a sixth-round pick, the team drafted Trey Sermon out of Ohio State in the third round.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters before today's practice at The Greenbrier in West Virginia. He provided several injury updates as the team prepares for its Week 2 contest against the Philadelphia Eagles. Defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw (knee) and cornerback Emmanuel Moseley (knee) will be among the injured players who will not practice today. Both were inactive for Week 1 against the Detroit Lions. Shanahan was asked if Kinlaw's injury is something that might have to be managed throughout the season. "We're not sure. That's why we're trying to take it slow with him," Shanahan answered. "And when we have, it's gotten better. So, you've got to see how that continues to react. I think we'll be easy with him today.

Kyle Shanahan is tough on his wide receivers. That's a little tidbit that San Francisco 49ers wideout Deebo Samuel revealed on Wednesday night during his interview on 95.7 The Game's Damon, Ratto & Kolsky show. In fact, as a rookie in 2019, the receiver was downright frightened of his then-new head coach. Samuel was asked if he's ever been on Shanahan's bad side. "I wouldn't say bad side, but as a rookie, though, I was kind of terrified of Kyle," Samuel admitted. "As a rookie, trying to learn this offense, and he expects you to be top-tier, and you're not

49ers' Deebo Samuel on bout with Eagles: 'We're just trying to feed off last week's win'

San Fransisco 49ers third-year wideout Deebo Samuel broke out onto the scene once again during Week 1 against the Detroit Lions last Sunday. The wide receiver put up impressive numbers with 9 catches and a touchdown for a total of 189 yards, the second-highest receiving total by any Niners player on opening week. This comes as a relief to San Fransisco as Samuel once again looked like the promising player he previously showed flashes of whenever he was healthy. In his rookie season, back in 2019, Deebo was touted as one of the best receivers out of the draft right next to A.J. Brown, DK Metcalf, and Terry McLaurin as the blossoming rookie put up 802 yards on 57 catches. However, the very next season, 2020, the injury bug that hit the rest of the Niners roster affected Deebo
