49ers-Dolphins Injury Report: Deebo Samuel, Trent Williams questionable for Sunday; Christian McCaffrey, Arik Armstead cleared to play

Dec 2, 2022 at 2:36 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 13 contest against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Deebo Samuel was a limited participant in practice after missing Thursday's session. The wide receiver is dealing with a quad injury. At first, it looked like Samuel might not participate on Friday. Reporters spotted him heading into the weight room as practice kicked off. However, he re-emerged minutes later and joined his teammates on the practice field. Samuel is "questionable" for Sunday.

When asked how much work Samuel got in on Friday, Shanahan responded, "Not much."

The coach added, "When you have a deep thigh bruise, you kind of have an idea of how it's going to be, and it just hasn't been as good as we were expecting by now. We were expecting him to be able to go full by now. He wasn't able to, and that's why there is some concern."

There is some cause for concern along the offensive line. Veteran tackle Trent Williams left for the locker room after warmups due to back issues. If he cannot play against the Dolphins, Colton McKivitz is the likely next man up.


"He was having back spasms," head coach Kyle Shanahan said of Williams after practice. "... I'm not too concerned about it. I asked [offensive line coach] Chris [Foerster] if he was all right. He said, 'It's just big-guy problems.' [General manager and former NFL safety John] Lynch told me he used to get them sometimes.

"You usually have them on game day, and that's a big deal. So he had them today, spend the day resting and stuff, and expect him to be all right, but I hope that doesn't happen on Sunday."

The 49ers listed Williams as "questionable" for Sunday.

Running back Christian McCaffrey (knee irritation), guard Spencer Burford (ankle sprain), and defensive end Charles Omenihu (knee) all participated in their second consecutive practice after missing Wednesday's session. Burford and Omenihu are "questionable," while McCaffrey has been cleared to play.

Defensive tackle Arik Armstead, who on Thursday declared he would play against the Dolphins, has practiced all week. He, too, has been cleared to play after missing time due to foot and ankle injuries.

Below are the official injury reports for the 49ers and Dolphins, provided by the 49ers Communications staff. Also included are Friday's practice participation reports.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their NFC Championship Game contest against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Aside from tackle Trent Williams returning from his veteran day off, nothing changed compared to Wednesday's practice participation report.

According to head coach Kyle Shanahan, San Francisco 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey won't practice on Thursday, which means he'll have missed two consecutive practices due to a calf contusion.

Don't expect a little injury to keep McCaffrey out on Sunday, though. Reporters asked the running back if there was any chance in his mind that he wouldn't play against the Eagles. "Zero," McCaffrey quickly and confidently responded. The 49ers traded for McCaffrey on October 20, 2022. He has started each of the team's past 12 games, including these last two playoff matchups.

There probably wasn't much concern inside the San Francisco 49ers building surrounding running back Christian McCaffrey's availability for Sunday's NFC Championship Game matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. When asked about the chances of not playing this weekend, McCaffrey responded, "Zero." The media has kept an eye on the situation because McCaffrey missed the first two practices this week due to a calf contusion. The running back was back on the practice field on Friday, though, indicating he will be ready to go against the Eagles. The bad news is that running back Elijah Mitchell, who also missed Wednesday's and Thursday's practices, was not on the
