49ers’ Deebo Samuel, Fred Warner will undergo MRIs after injuries vs. Vikings

Nov 28, 2021 at 5:18 PM--


Several San Francisco 49ers players exited with injuries on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. Two of the team's best players, wide receiver Deebo Samuel and linebacker Fred Warner, were among those who left the game. Samuel is dealing with a groin injury, while Warner is dealing with a hamstring injury.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters that Samuel and Warner would undergo MRIs to determine the severity of the injuries. While Samuel was clearly disheartened by his injury, the coach sounded optimistic that it may not be a serious setback.

"I think he was just disappointed," Shanahan said. "We have no idea what it's going to be like. I don't think it's as bad as you worry. We're hoping it's a little strain, and he feels that it might be. He felt it.

"That's what happened to Deebo in the first play of the game versus Washington last year. I think it's what happened to him in the first quarter versus New England. You can tell when he feels something, he stops right away. That's why I knew right away, on the first step of that, that something was there.

"But by the time he got to the sidelines, you feel like you saved a real bad injury, and we'll have to find out tomorrow."

Like Shanahan, Samuel didn't sound too concerned about the injury.

"My groin got kind of tight once I went to make a move," the receiver explained after the game. "So, I was just like, 'Let's not make nothing any worse.' And that's why I just went down. ... Not too much concerned. I've got an MRI and stuff in the morning, and we'll just go see how it goes."

Shanahan added that linebacker Dre Greenlaw left the game with a groin injury. In addition, running back Trey Sermon suffered an ankle injury, and the 49ers coach sounded more concerned about it compared to the others.

"His looked a little worse," Shanahan said of Sermon's injury. "But I don't know yet. We'll find out tomorrow."

Defensive end Nick Bosa and linebacker Marcell Harris were examined for head injuries but cleared.

The San Francisco 49ers finished Sunday's game without two of their best defenders. Pass rusher Nick Bosa left the game at the end of the first half and was ruled out with a concussion. Linebacker Fred Warner exited the second half and did not return due to an ankle injury. "On Nick Bosa's concussion, my information is that I cannot speculate on a concussion," NFL insider Ian Rapoport said Monday morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "And it's not just me. It's impossible. Teammates sounded like he was talking in the locker room and OK, but that doesn't actually mean anything because everyone recovers from concussions differently, and you can't tough it out." Bosa has hurdles to get past to play in Saturday's playoff game against the Green Bay Packers,

Fred Warner on 49ers-Cowboys: 'It's going to be a battle'

Everyone is getting pretty excited for Sunday's playoff clash between the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys. Players on both teams are too young to know what this rivalry once meant to fans. However, they know that one team's season will end this weekend. Many are saying that no team—not even the NFC East champions—wants to face the 49ers right now. They could be among the playoffs' most dangerous teams. "They're very confident," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on Tuesday. "They've won some big games. They've won it against some good teams. They play in a tough division over there. … They'll be a real, real mess to deal with out here Sunday." Star linebacker Fred Warner knows none of that matters regarding Sunday's game. The
