49ers’ Deebo Samuel eyes return, announces he’s ‘finally back to work’

Nov 24, 2020 at 9:09 AM--


San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel appears to be eyeing a Week 12 return. We know head coach Kyle Shanahan is optimistic that several injured players will be making their returns this week. That includes Samuel, along with cornerback Richard Sherman and running backs Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman.

Samuel shared a video via Instagram with the caption, "Finally back to work."


Last week, Shanahan discussed the return of Samuel and the others. However, he knows that receiving a few reinforcements doesn't change the 49ers' situation much. The team owns a 4-6 record and will need to show vast improvement over the final six games to keep its playoff hopes alive.

"Getting guys who you depend on, who've done a lot for us, I think you guys can see how Deebo's been in just the games he's played this year," Shanahan said. "How Sherm's been, just even when he came out to practice, the boost he gives.

"… Getting Deebo back, getting Raheem back, Sherm, that stuff is going to help big. That's some juice we need, but we also don't have much room for error with where our record is right now. So, I can't count on those guys just to come in and change everything."

Fortunately, the challenges Samuel faced in 2020 are now almost completely in the rearview mirror, and as a result, he's itching to jump into the offseason and get prepared for 2021. Samuel spoke in detail with reporters Monday about what he went through in 2020, revealing that he faced a level of emotional challenge along the way that he hadn't experienced previously in his career. Samuel went through two injury-shortened seasons during his college days at the University of South Carolina, but a Jones fracture in his foot he sustained during an offseason workout in June followed by hamstring

The 2020 NFL season probably didn't go as running back Raheem Mostert had hoped. Injuries reduced his participation to just eight games. Mostert finished the season with 521 rushing yards on 104 carries with two rushing touchdowns and a receiving score. According to Next Gen Stats, Mostert did finish the season recording the two fastest ball-carrier speeds. He hit 23.09 MPH during Week 2 against the New York Jets, a game he left with an MCL sprain, and forcing the running back to miss the next two matchups. Mostert was tracked reaching 22.73 MPH during a Week 1 touchdown reception against the Arizona

Deebo Samuel doesn't like anyone suggesting Nick Bosa be part of a potential Watson-to-49ers trade

By David Bonilla

It's the offseason. So why not speculate on what it might take for the San Francisco 49ers to land disgruntled Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson? One suggestion by former NFL player Ross Tucker, during an interview on 95.7 The Game, was a little too wild for a 49ers wide receiver's liking. Tucker mentioned the 49ers' young pass-rushing star after being asked if anyone is untouchable in creating a tempting enough package to acquire Watson. "I would say Nick Bosa, but if you can get Deshaun Watson, I think even Bosa is touchable," Tucker said. "I'm sure they don't want to do it, and I'm sure they'd even rather give up picks, but as great as Nick is, if you get a chance to get a top-five quarterback in the NFL, you have to do it. "So I would say
