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

Nov 13, 2020 at 12:25 PM--


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," Lynch said this morning on KNBR. "Having said that, it hasn't been overwhelmingly encouraging. He's getting closer but has still felt it a little. So, typically, a player of that magnitude, if he's still feeling that on a Thursday going into a Friday, we'll give him a chance here to prove us otherwise. But right now, probably not too encouraged on Deebo."

Samuel missed the 49ers' first three games of the season after suffering a Jones fracture in June. He has since registered 16 receptions for 185 yards with a touchdown.

The 49ers activated Kendrick Bourne off the reserve/COVID-19 list today, and the wide receiver was on the field during practice.

"The good news is he'll be traveling with us to New Orleans," Lynch said of Bourne this morning. "The challenge there, he's been out of the building since last Tuesday and been at home. ... He's been in quarantine. So, that's a challenge."


Head coach Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers will release game statuses and an official practice participation report later today.

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



NFL receiving leader Deebo Samuel off to a blazing start with the 49ers

San Francisco's star wide receiver Deebo Samuel had himself another very impressive game in last week's close competition with the Philadelphia Eagles. Even more promising for the 49ers is the fact that the third year wideout had a good performance against Eagles secondary and Darius Slay in the low scoring, grit and grind game. The final score ended up being a 17-11 win, but the Niners had an otherwise stagnant offense for most of the game, being shut down by Philadephia's strong run defense. The 49ers receiver did it all on the field as he even had a critical pass breakup to prevent a potentially costly mistake by quarterback Jimmy Garappolo. Shanahan had this to say about the potential game-altering play: "I thought he [Garappolo] did miss a little one on that out throw on

Deebo Samuel is the NFL's leading receiver. During Sunday's win over the Philadelphia Eagles, he didn't have a touchdown, but the San Francisco 49ers wideout helped set one up at the end of the first half. On the play before Jauan Jennings' touchdown, Samuel hauled in a Jimmy Garoppolo-thrown pass in the middle of the field and turned it into a 40-yard reception that moved the Niners offense to the Eagles' 11-yard line, setting up Garoppolo-to-Jennings for the go-ahead score. Lots of under appreciated receivers in the NFC West like Cooper Kupp and Tyler Lockett, but you have to include Deebo Samuel as well.He's about as



49ers' Deebo Samuel was terrified of Kyle Shanahan during his rookie season

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
