Kyle Shanahan says 49ers could know more about Deebo Samuel’s status by Friday

Dec 9, 2021 at 3:39 PM--


Kyle Shanahan had hoped that wide receiver Deebo Samuel would take part in Thursday's practice. He didn't. However, the San Francisco 49ers head coach isn't willing to rule his leading receiver out of Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Samuel was inactive this past weekend against the Seattle Seahawks as he continued recovering from a groin strain. When will the 49ers know more about the wideout's potential availability? Will it be a game-time decision?

"I think we'll have a good idea, hopefully after tomorrow," Shanahan said on KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "He didn't go today. He's doing stuff on the sides. So, he's getting his conditioning and work and stuff. We just don't want him competing against guys because we want to give him as many days to where he feels good. But if he's competing against a guy, and he does one step too hard, that's how you reinjure it.

"He's doing all his stuff on the side, looking good so far. But hopefully, he can get into practice tomorrow and show he's able to go. But yeah, it won't be until tomorrow, at the earliest."

Friday's practice is the last of the week before the 49ers travel to the East Coast for Sunday's game at Paul Brown Stadium.

You can listen to the entire conversation with Shanahan below.

San Francisco 49ers star linebacker Fred Warner spoke with NFL Network's Tom Pelissero following the NFL's schedule release yesterday. The Pro Bowl and All-Pro defender was asked about his disgruntled teammate, wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who requested a trade this offseason. Samuel is eligible for a contract extension, but there have been no updates on that front. And the 49ers didn't grant his wish for a trade either. Warner told Pelissero that 49ers teammates, like quarterback Trey Lance and tight end George Kittle, have been in contact with Samuel since the trade request became public last month. Pelissero pressed Warner to reveal his level of confidence that Samuel is playing for the 49ers come Week 1 against the Chicago Bears. "I



George Kittle spoke with Deebo Samuel, says 49ers WR is 'in a good place'

The drama surrounding Deebo Samuel has died down a bit. Much of that is due to the San Francisco 49ers not granting his trade request ahead of the draft. By not doing so, the team declared that they believe the relationship with their do-everything wideout can be mended. George Kittle has been making the media rounds today. Of course, among the questions directed toward the All-Pro tight end involves the status of Samuel. After all, it's a storyline that dominated NFL headlines heading into the draft. "I actually talked to him a few days ago," Kittle said on The Pat McAfee Show. "Yeah, he seemed like he was in a good mood. He was hanging out with his kid, who he just had. ... I didn't ask about his contract, so we were just talking about other things,

The San Francisco 49ers kick off organized team activities (OTAs) today. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo won't be there.
