49ers being cautious with Deebo Samuel, holding him out from practice

Dec 3, 2020 at 12:24 PM--

Wide receiver Deebo Samuel is among the San Francisco 49ers players who will not practice in Arizona on Thursday. Head coach Kyle Shanahan made it clear that the team is just being cautious with its second-year wideout.

Sunday was Samuel's first time back on the football field since he suffered a hamstring injury on October 25. He was sore from the game, so the 49ers decided to give him some extra time to recover.

"Just being smart with him," Shanahan told reporters via Zoom before Thursday's practice. "... No setback. Just still sore from the game, especially after traveling yesterday and stuff, being on a plane. We don't want to get him out there with what's happened to him this year, and have him go full-speed, and risk anything with the hamstring."

Shanahan added that cornerback K'Waun Williams is still dealing with his ankle injury and isn't likely to practice this week, which would make his availability for Monday night's game against the Buffalo Bills unlikely, too. Williams suffered his injury on November 5 against the Green Bay Packers.

The 49ers have been hesitant to put Williams on injured reserve a second time this year because it would mean the cornerback would be unable to return this season.

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

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
