49ers-Dolphins: Christian McCaffrey returns to practice; Deebo Samuel absent

Dec 1, 2022 at 1:43 PM--


San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey returned to practice on Thursday after sitting out Wednesday's session due to what head coach Kyle Shanahan called "some irritation" in his knee. The issue arose during Sunday's 13-0 win over the New Orleans Saints.

San Francisco lost running back Elijah Mitchell for the remainder of the regular season due to an MCL sprain. Rookie Jordan Mason, known as "J.P." to his coaches and teammates, filled in for Mitchell and McCaffrey at the end of the game against the Saints.

Defensive linemen Arik Armstead and Charles Omenihu were on the practice field. While Armstead has not played since Week 4, he was a limited practice participant on Wednesday and last Friday. Omenihu did not practice on Wednesday due to a knee issue.

Guard Spencer Burford appeared to be back at practice after missing Wednesday's session due to an ankle sprain.

Deebo Samuel's absence is a bit concerning as the team heads into a big game against the Miami Dolphins. The wide receiver was limited on Wednesday due to a quad injury but was nowhere to be seen at the start of Thursday's practice.

It was McCaffrey's first game in a Niners uniform, where he had about 48 hours to prepare.

The San Francisco 49ers were always impressed with Christian McCaffrey, going back to his pre-draft evaluation in 2017. That's why when rumors started spreading that the Carolina Panthers running back might be available via a trade in October, general manager John Lynch and his staff jumped into action. Tight end George Kittle remembers when he first heard about the trade. "I was literally playing video games, and my buddy goes, 'Hey, did you see Twitter? You guys just got Christian McCaffrey,'" Kittle shared last week. "And I said, 'Shut the front door,' and I called [McCaffrey] immediately. He was like, 'I have no idea what's going on.' I was like, 'Neither do I, but welcome to the Niners, man. We're going to have a good time.'" About 48 hours
