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."

Late Wednesday night, San Francisco 49ers fans sighed in relief as wide receiver Deebo Samuel reportedly followed the team on Instagram once again, which could be a sign that the relationship is getting back on track. Samuel, who scrubbed his account of everything 49ers related on April 7th, which was around the time of his reported trade request, was not moved during the draft as the 49ers stayed firm with their decision despite fielding multiple offers for the star receiver. Now, almost a month later, Samuel has re-followed the team, once again utilizing his power of social media to express his

When Frank Gore speaks, San Francisco 49ers fans listen. The man is an icon in the hearts of The Faithful. The former NFL running back, who remains the 49ers' all-time leading rusher, has a lot of love for his first NFL team too, always keeping up with new developments and often sharing his opinion on the team he admires most. Gore voiced his opinion on Friday, responding to a tweet asking fans to name the best wide receiver in the NFL. Gore's answer? Deebo Samuel. Not only did he call Samuel the best wide receiver, but he took it further, calling him the "best player all-around" in the NFL (h/t The Spun). That is some high praise from the future Hall

There have been two major San Francisco 49ers storylines this offseason. The first was the quarterback situation and the transition from Jimmy Garoppolo to Trey Lance. Then, that was overshadowed by the Deebo Samuel drama that culminated in the wide receiver requesting a trade—and then being denied. On Monday, Albert Breer of MMQB joined The Rich Eisen Show and shared what he had heard about both storylines, starting with Samuel and the 49ers' strong desire to mend the broken relationship. "The messaging coming out of there is how badly [the 49ers] want him back and how important he is to their team," Breer told Eisen. Samuel was an essential factor in the team's success last season, amassing 1,770 all-purpose yards and 14 total touchdowns for
