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.

Late Wednesday night, San Francisco 49ers fans sighed in relief as wide receiver Deebo Samuel reportedly followed the team on Instagram once again, which could be a sign that the relationship is getting back on track. Samuel, who scrubbed his account of everything 49ers related on April 7th, which was around the time of his reported trade request, was not moved during the draft as the 49ers stayed firm with their decision despite fielding multiple offers for the star receiver. Now, almost a month later, Samuel has re-followed the team, once again utilizing his power of social media to express his

When Frank Gore speaks, San Francisco 49ers fans listen. The man is an icon in the hearts of The Faithful. The former NFL running back, who remains the 49ers' all-time leading rusher, has a lot of love for his first NFL team too, always keeping up with new developments and often sharing his opinion on the team he admires most. Gore voiced his opinion on Friday, responding to a tweet asking fans to name the best wide receiver in the NFL. Gore's answer? Deebo Samuel.

There have been two major San Francisco 49ers storylines this offseason. The first was the quarterback situation and the transition from Jimmy Garoppolo to Trey Lance. Then, that was overshadowed by the Deebo Samuel drama that culminated in the wide receiver requesting a trade—and then being denied. On Monday, Albert Breer of MMQB joined The Rich Eisen Show and shared what he had heard about both storylines, starting with Samuel and the 49ers' strong desire to mend the broken relationship. "The messaging coming out of there is how badly [the 49ers] want him back and how important he is to their team," Breer told Eisen. Samuel was an essential factor in the team's success last season, amassing 1,770 all-purpose yards and 14 total touchdowns for
