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.

Fred Warner, Nick Bosa, 49ers defense shoulder blame in loss to Broncos

The Denver Broncos offense scored only nine points against the San Francisco 49ers defense on Sunday night. The Niners offense, Jimmy Garoppolo specifically, provided two of the home team's 11 total points after the quarterback stepped out of the back of the end zone for a safety. The 49ers offense couldn't get much going with Garoppolo at the helm. The quarterback finished the game 18-of-29 for 211 yards, a touchdown, an interception, and a passer rating of 81.3 in his first start of the season. Yet, the defense accepted the blame for San Francisco's record falling to 1-2 in a game in which they were favored. "We've got to play a full four-quarter game," linebacker Fred Warner said after the 11-10 loss in Denver. "It doesn't matter how dominant we are throughout



49ers LB Fred Warner names 2 teammates who consistently amaze him

On Sunday, San Francisco 49ers star linebacker Fred Warner will sit back and enjoy some football on television, just as many fans across the country do. He doesn't play in his Week 4 contest until the next night, and he rarely gets to take in so much of the gridiron action on the weekend. Instead, he's usually preparing for his own game. Unlike most fans, though, Warner will be taking a more analytical approach to his football watching, trying to find something from his NFL peers that he might be able to apply to his own play and use against the Los Angeles Rams. Even when Warner doesn't get to watch the games around the league, he often witnesses some amazing play. Several of his teammates are playmakers, after all. On Wednesday, Warner joined 95.7 The Game and



49ers' Kyle Shanahan evaluates George Kittle's return, defenses taking away the Deebo Samuel factor

George Kittle caught just four passes for 28 yards during his 2022 season debut on Sunday night against the Denver Broncos. The San Francisco 49ers tight end is returning from a groin injury that forced him to miss Weeks 1 and 2. He wasn't much of a factor in the 11-10 loss to Denver, though. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters via a Monday conference call and asked if Kittle is still working his way back into game shape. "Yeah, definitely," Shanahan responded. "You can't underestimate how much, when guys miss time, how hard it is to go out and play a game like that. So yeah, George, he did some good things, but he's not there yet because he hasn't been playing much. It was nice to get him back in practice more last week. It was nice to get him through



49ers coach Kyle Shanahan explains decision to play Deommodore Lenoir vs. Broncos over Samuel Womack

After an impressive preseason, cornerback Samuel Womack played just two defensive snaps on Sunday night against the Denver Broncos. They weren't at slot cornerback, though. Instead, the San Francisco 49ers opted to go with second-year cornerback Deommodore Lenoir at that position, where he played 35 defensive snaps. During a conference call on Monday, head coach Kyle Shanahan explained that decision. "We just liked how he's been looking," Shanahan said. "We were trying to put the best people out there that we think gives us the best chance to win, and just from the last few weeks, and watching him practice and everything, we felt that was D-Mo, and I was real happy with how he played too. I thought he was one of the better guys out there last
