Kyle Shanahan: 49ers WR Deebo Samuel will get an MRI, injury ‘didn’t look good’

Dec 13, 2020 at 5:12 PM--

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after Sunday's 23-15 loss to Washington and didn't sound too optimistic about wide receiver Deebo Samuel's injury.

Samuel exited the game after the first offensive play of the game and was later ruled out with a hamstring injury.

"It happened the first play and you could -- just talking to him -- I know (he'll have an) MRI and we'll look at it tomorrow but it didn't look good," Shanahan said.

Samuel entered Week 14 having already missed six full games this season. He missed the first three while recovering from a Jones fracture suffered in June and then another three with a hamstring strain.

"We lost a pretty big element but it's not why we lost today," Shanahan added. "I mean, with the way our defense played. Obviously, Deebo is a huge part of us and would have helped a ton but that wasn't why we lost."

Shanahan also provided the following injury updates:

  • Linebacker Fred Warner left the second half with a stinger and did not return.
  • Running back Raheem Mostert was examined for head and ankle injuries but did return.
  • Left tackle Trent Williams was examined for a knee injury but did return.

Kyle Juszczyk: Kyle Shanahan and Mike McDaniel's vision makes the 49ers dangerous

Kyle Juszczyk spent his first four NFL seasons with the Baltimore Ravens before signing with the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. The best fullback in the league re-signed with the team in March, ensuring he remains in the Bay Area through the 2025 season. It sounds like Juszczyk has no regrets about the decision to remain with head coach Kyle Shanahan. It's an offensive scheme that suits him and takes advantage of his unique versatility. Juszczyk may not have had the same opportunities with another organization. "I definitely have had the most fun in San Francisco because I am a little more featured," Juszczyk said this week on The Ross Tucker Football Podcast. "'Featured' is different as a fullback. I'm not the featured halfback or the No. 1 receiver. ...

A look at the details of Fred Warner's contract extension with the 49ers

Soon after news of the deal broke, Pro Football Talk released the details of linebacker Fred Warner's massive contract extension with the San Francisco 49ers. The five-year deal has a potential value of $95.225 million, including $40.5 million guaranteed. That would earn the All-Pro linebacker about $19 million a year. Interestingly, the contract's final two years are voidable, so the 49ers can choose to pick up those years if they find themselves in a healthy salary-cap situation. If they don't, then they have some options. Looking only at the extension itself and not 2021, which is the final year of his rookie deal, here is a year-by-year breakdown,

SI bullish on 49ers' Kyle Shanahan in head coach power rankings

Kyle Shanahan owns a record of 29-35 as the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. He has won more than six games just once in his four seasons with the team. Yet, despite the losing records, those around the league still hold Shanahan in high esteem due to the coach's creativity as a play designer and play-caller. In his first two seasons as a head coach, Shanahan won a combined 10 games. However, his fortunes appeared to change in 2017, his first season in San Francisco, when the 49ers traded for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and the team rattled off five consecutive wins to end the season. Expectations were high entering the next season, but the team's hopes were dashed when Garoppolo was lost to a torn ACL. Things seemed to come together in 2019. While the

When it came time for the New York Jets head coach to speak to his team following an early offseason practice, Robert Saleh stood there behind his players, waiting to hear what would be said. Then he remembered ... "Oh shoot, that's me," Saleh said to himself. The story is similar to San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan nearly forgetting to name team captains before his first preseason game. "Honestly, if someone hadn't asked me, I probably would have been sitting there looking out at the coin toss and wondering why no one was out there," Shanahan said on
