49ers-Dolphins: Deebo Samuel returns to practice but Trent Williams exits with back issues

Dec 2, 2022 at 12:52 PM--


Deebo Samuel faked out reporters on Friday. The media saw the San Francisco 49ers wide receiver leave for the weight room as practice kicked off, causing reporters to assume he would not participate for the second consecutive day.

Moments later, Samuel re-emerged and joined his teammates on the practice field, forcing several tweet corrections from the media on hand.


Samuel is dealing with a quad injury. The 49ers hope to have him available for Sunday's clash at Levi's Stadium with the Miami Dolphins. On Friday morning, head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked if the wideout might be a game-time decision.

"So far, it is," Shanahan responded on KNBR. "He's got to do something today for it to be a chance to be a game-time decision."

While Samuel's return to the practice field is good news for the 49ers, Trent Williams exiting practice is bad news. The veteran left tackle headed to the locker room after warmups because of back issues.


If Williams cannot play, Colton McKivitz would be the likely player to step into the starting left tackle spot for Sunday's game.

The 49ers will release their official game status and practice participation reports soon.

It was unlikely that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo suited up on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, serving as rookie Brock Purdy's backup in the NFC Championship Game. Still, there was a slight chance the injured veteran could be healthy enough to be active. The team awaited the results of an X-ray on Tuesday to see how much Garoppolo's broken foot has recovered. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Wednesday and shared that the 49ers got the X-ray results. "I don't expect to have him this week," Shanahan revealed. Garoppolo sustained his injury on December 4. A return for the Super Bowl remains a possibility. A new name was added to the 49ers' injury report. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel will not practice
