49ers-Raiders Injury Report: Deebo Samuel’s return highlights Thursday practice

Dec 29, 2022 at 3:46 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 17 contest against the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The biggest news from Thursday's practice was the return of Deebo Samuel. The wide receiver joined his teammates on the field for the first time since sustaining MCL and ankle sprains against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on December 11. He is expected to be ready for the playoffs, with a return at some point in these last two regular-season games a possibility.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan stated that Samuel's return on Thursday was likely, but dependent on how his Wednesday workout went. Samuel was a limited participant in practice. With the NFC West title and a playoff spot already secured, there is no need to rush the receiver back.

Defensive end Nick Bosa and punter Mitch Wishnowsky returned after missing Wednesday due to illness.

As expected, defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw returned to practice after receiving Wednesday off, which was planned. The defensive lineman returned to the football field against the Washington Commanders this past Saturday, his first action since Week 3.

"I thought he did a good job," Shanahan said this week of Kinlaw's Week 16 performance. "I think the more he plays, the more we'll be able to keep him out there longer. That fourth-and-one down on the goal line, I thought he made a real big play there taking on the double team, taking two blockers, allowing [LB] Fred [Warner] and [DT] T.Y. [McGill] to make that play. So he really helped out, was stout in the run game, and that was a good first step."

Below are Thursday's practice participation reports for both the 49ers and Raiders, which were provided by the 49ers Communications staff.

On Tuesday, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan provided an update on Brock Purdy. The second-year quarterback underwent surgery on March 10 to repair the tear of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his right elbow, an injury he suffered in the NFC Championship Game in January. Purdy is recovering well. There have been no setbacks as the quarterback works his way to increasing his workload. "He's doing good," Shanahan said of his quarterback's recovery. "Still staying the same. [He's] on schedule." The 49ers always believed that Purdy would be able to start throwing a football again sometime in early June. That's next week. The good news is that nothing about that timeline has changed. "I think he's allowed to throw sometime

On Tuesday, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said he remains "pretty optimistic" that quarterback Brock Purdy would be available for Week 1 of the 2023 season. The 23-year-old underwent surgery on March 10 to repair the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) tear in his right elbow. Purdy is hopeful to be on the field with his teammates against the Pittsburgh Steelers on September 10. "Feeling good and taking it one day at a time," Purdy told reporters after Tuesday's practice, the second of organized team activities (OTAs). The quarterback obviously did not participate.
