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.

John Lynch says Deebo Samuel will be with the 49ers for a long time

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel is becoming one of the NFL's biggest stars. He racked up 1,770 all-purpose yards this season and 15 total touchdowns (6 receiving, 8 rushing, 1 passing). Samuel has frustrated opposing defenses as a receiver, as a rusher, and even tossed a touchdown pass this past weekend against the Los Angeles Rams. Samuel is in his third NFL season, which means it's time to start thinking about a contract extension for the 25-year-old star. He's positioned himself to be among the highest-paid players at his position. However, Samuel is unique in that he does so much more than just playing wide receiver. "Deebo's going to be well compensated, and we plan on him being a Niner for a long time," general manager John Lynch said

Wide receiver Deebo Samuel called his San Francisco 49ers a "real dangerous" team heading into the postseason. "It's about to get scary," Samuel said in a post-game interview. NFL Media's Maurice Jones-Drew agrees. In the wide-open NFC playoffs, the 49ers could be one of the more intriguing teams. Most left them for dead after a 2-4 start to the season. However, they finished strong, winning eight of their last 11, including Sunday's thrilling 27-24 overtime victory to secure a playoff spot. Jones-Drew believes the 49ers have what it takes to make some noise and go as far as they

Deebo Samuel had 95 receiving yards and 45 rushing yards in the San Francisco 49ers' thrilling 27-24 overtime road win over the Los Angeles Rams. He scores his seventh rushing touchdown of the season, the most in a single season by a wide receiver. Samuel even threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Jauan Jennings. However, Samuel didn't singlehandedly lift the 49ers to the win. Everyone stepped up in the crucial playoff-impacting game. Brandon Aiyuk led the team in receiving yards with 107. Jennings had a career-high 94 receiving yards. Rookie Elijah Mitchell racked up 85 rushing yards. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo turned in a gutsy performance, playing with a torn ligament and chipped bone in his right thumb while completing 23-of-32 pass attempts for
