49ers-Saints Injury Report: Still no Deebo Samuel at practice, River Cracraft a game-time decision

Nov 12, 2020 at 3:25 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 10 contest against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.

It's starting to look like wide receiver Deebo Samuel will miss another game. He is dealing with a hamstring injury and did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday. Head coach Kyle Shanahan had hoped to get him onto the practice field on Thursday after the team had a chance to re-evaluate his injury.

Wide receiver Trent Taylor (back), who missed Wednesday's practice, was back on the field.


Cornerback Richard Sherman continues to work his way back from injured reserve. The 49ers opened his practice window this week. While a Week 12 return remains the most likely scenario, the team has not ruled out the possibility of Sherman playing this weekend.


Shanahan said on KNBR that wide receiver River Cracraft is dealing with a quad contusion.

"But unfortunately, River Cracraft, out there on Wednesday, got a quad contusion," Shanahan said, "and he'll probably go all the way up to game time, whether he can play or not."

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

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,"

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 10 contest against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. Both wide receiver Deebo Samuel and running back Tevin Coleman are ruled out. Neither practiced this week. Two other receivers, River Cracraft and Trent Taylor, are listed as "questionable." Sunday will be Samuel's third consecutive missed game due to a hamstring injury. He also missed the first three games of the season after suffering a Jones fracture in June. Head coach Kyle Shanahan noted that cornerback Richard Sherman would not be activated from injured reserve before this weekend's game. The 49ers opened his practice windows this week. Sherman's most-likely return will be on November

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. Kendrick Bourne will travel with the 49ers this weekend. Trent Taylor and River Cracraft are on track to play. Lynch started with Samuel, who remains a long shot to play this weekend against the New Orleans Saints.
