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.

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

The San Francisco 49ers always seem willing to take a chance on a player if the potential value appears to outweigh the cost. Take cornerback Jason Verrett, for instance. The 49ers' brain trust could have cut ties with the player, who was considered injury-prone, after he landed on injured reserve last season. It was the fifth time in six NFL seasons that Verrett landed on injured reserve. No one would have blamed San Francisco for cutting its losses and moving on. Verrett proved to be one of the better storylines in an otherwise disastrous season. Not only did the cornerback stay healthy, starting 13 games, but he was Pro Football Focus' eighth-highest graded cornerback. RELATED:
