Fred Warner returns to practice ahead of 49ers-Bengals; Elijah Mitchell, Deebo Samuel don’t practice

Dec 8, 2021 at 11:48 AM--

Before Wednesday's practice, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters and provided several practice participation updates. The team is holding its first of three full practices this week at 1 p.m. PT.

Star linebacker Fred Warner is returning to the practice field on Wednesday after missing Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks with a hamstring strain. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has sounded optimistic that Warner would be available for this weekend's game.

"Warner is full-go," Shanahan said of his linebacker's practice status. "Marcell [Harris] is full-go [too]."

Warner also spoke with reporters and was asked how he feels.

"One hundred percent," the linebacker responded with a smile.

The two 49ers players who suffered head injuries on Sunday—running backs Elijah Mitchell and Trenton Cannon—won't practice. They remain in the concussion protocol. Shanahan revealed that Mitchell is also dealing with a knee injury.

"I think they're calling it a knee irritation right now," Shanahan said. "We didn't have the imaging back when I talked to you guys [on Monday] but it's some stuff that makes him day-to-day."

Running back Jeff Wilson Jr., who is dealing with a knee injury, will be limited.

Wide receiver Deebo Samuel won't get any work on Wednesday. However, he could return to the practice field later in the week.

"I'm hoping he'll practice tomorrow," Shanahan said before adding that he hopes defensive end Dee Ford can practice on Thursday too.

Earlier this week, Shanahan said that cornerback Emmanuel Moseley would miss "several weeks" due to a high-ankle sprain. Obviously, he will not practice for a while.

'He's looking to dish out punishment': Jerry Rice evaluates Deebo Samuel ahead of 49ers-Rams

Deebo Samuel has been a difference-maker for the San Francisco 49ers this season. He's a big reason why the 49ers made the playoffs and are now in the NFC Championship Game. If San Francisco knocks off the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, punching its ticket to the team's second Super Bowl appearance in three years, Samuel will be a big reason why. No one really knows how to classify Samuel, though. He's a wide receiver, but he also shows off his versatility by playing running back. Samuel thinks of himself as a "wide back"—a wide receiver and running back hybrid. Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice sees Samuel the same way. "I see him as both (wide receiver and running back) because his body structure," Rice told Andrew Siciliano on NFL Network's

All signs point to him still starting in Saturday's game. A rare Levi's practice under the lights for the 49ers. It's a little cool outside … but it will be 40 degrees cooler on Saturday.
