49ers-Packers: Kyle Shanahan provides post-game updates on Deebo Samuel, Trent Williams

Jan 22, 2022 at 8:56 PM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after his team's stunning playoff win over the Green Bay Packers—the second in as many weeks. He provided updates on a couple of key players who fought through injuries in the game.

Wide receiver Deebo Samuel exited the game after a 12-yard catch in the third quarter. He was tackled by linebacker Krys Barnes, started to make his way to the sideline, and then paused and went down.

Samuel eventually made it to the sideline under his own power and even remained in the game. However, he exited again late in the fourth quarter, hopping on one foot to the sideline. Samuel was not able to put weight on his right leg and needed help to reach the bench.

Shanahan didn't sound too concerned.

"He was out celebrating with them [after the win]," Shanahan told reporters. "He seemed alright."

Samuel didn't sound too concerned either.

"My ankle got twisted up, and I got scared there for a second, but I'll be alright," Samuel told Stacey Dales after the game.


All-Pro tackle Trent Williams got his right ankle wrapped after looking to be in pain in the third quarter. He stayed in the game but was later seen limping off the field.


Williams was seen on crutches after the game. Although, that could have been precautionary. His leg was still taped up, but he was not wearing a protective boot.

"We're going to have to get some X-rays and stuff on him," Shanahan said. "I mean, I saw him hobbling around the whole second half, so I'm not sure yet."

Bleacher Report: 49ers probably regret not extending Deebo Samuel earlier

By David Bonilla

Bleacher Report's Kristopher Knox recently listed one offseason regret for each NFL team (h/t Niners Noise). That regret for the Kansas City Chiefs was letting Charvarius Ward depart. In March, the cornerback signed a three-year, $40.5 million deal with the San Francisco 49ers, forcing the Chiefs to use a first-round pick on Trent McDuffie. What about the regret for the 49ers, though? Is it the complicated situation with Jimmy Garoppolo, the veteran quarterback they would love to trade but can't? Is it not directly shooting



George Kittle wishes the 49ers didn't delay Deebo Samuel extension

Earlier this week, Bleacher Report listed what it believes is the one offseason regret for each NFL team. For the San Francisco 49ers, it was the team not locking wide receiver Deebo Samuel to a contract extension earlier—before the receiver market exploded earlier in the offseason and Samuel requested to be traded. One 49ers star wishes his team had taken care of Samuel earlier, avoiding the offseason drama altogether. Samuel reported to the team's mandatory minicamp earlier this month but didn't participate in the on-field work. "Hindsight is 20-20, right?" tight end George Kittle said this week on the



49ers' Deebo Samuel, George Kittle among PFF's top offensive duos

The San Francisco 49ers would probably love to see Brandon Aiyuk emerge as one of the top receivers in the NFL. That would make an Aiyuk-Deebo Samuel duo a headache for opposing defenses. Until then, the 49ers have two impressive offensive weapons in Samuel and tight end George Kittle. That's good news for second-year quarterback Trey Lance, who is expected to be the team's Week 1 starter after starting only two games as a rookie. The Samuel-Kittle pairing ranks among Pro Football Focus' top five offensive duos heading into the 2022 season. Kambui Bomani explains that both controlling the middle of the field at an elite level landed them within the



Fowler: 49ers' Deebo Samuel hasn't rescinded trade request

Deebo Samuel attended the San Francisco 49ers' mandatory minicamp earlier this month but did not participate in the practices. General manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan continued to share their optimism that the 49ers will sign Samuel to a contract extension despite the wide receiver requesting a trade earlier in the offseason. Samuel's willingness to report to the mandatory minicamp gave the impression that there is hope that the rift between player and team can be resolved and that a contract extension might come before training camp. However, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that nothing has changed regarding Samuel's stance. "I'm told status quo is really when he reported to minicamp; that's the last piece of news that we have here," Fowler said
