Rapoport: 49ers WR Deebo Samuel ‘expected to miss a little time’ with injury

Nov 29, 2021 at 9:34 AM--


San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel exited Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings with a groin injury. He is undergoing an MRI today to determine the severity of the injury.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the team's leading receiver is "expected to miss a little time." However, the good news is that the injury does not appear to be a long-term one.


"My groin got kind of tight once I went to make a move," Samuel explained after the 49ers' 34-26 victory. "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."

This morning, the receiver did tweet out the following. While Samuel often notes that not all of his social media posts are football-related, fans are likely hoping this one is an indication that the injury is not serious.


Samuel has recorded 56 catches for 1,006 receiving yards and five receiving touchdowns this season. He is the first 49ers wide receiver to surpass 1,000 receiving yards since Anquan Boldin did so in 2014.

Samuel also has 25 carries for 203 rushing yards and five rushing touchdowns. One hundred forty-five of those rushing yards have come over the last two weeks.

Linebacker Fred Warner is also undergoing an MRI due to a hamstring injury suffered in the same game.

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
