49ers-Eagles Injury Report: Deebo Samuel ends up practicing despite ankle issue

Jan 25, 2023 at 3:00 PM--



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.

On Monday, head coach Kyle Shanahan provided a list of players who emerged from Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys a bit dinged up. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel's name wasn't on the list then. That changed on Wednesday. The coach said Samuel was not expected to practice. However, the star wideout did end up getting some work in during Wednesday's session.

The 49ers don't sound too concerned about the receiver's ankle issue.

"It's just kind of sore," Samuel told reporters before Wednesday's practice. "It's just [us] being pretty cautious, just trying to get ready for Sunday."

Other than that, the names on Wednesday's injury report were pretty much the ones everyone expected. There was no Jimmy Garoppolo at practice. The 49ers don't expect the quarterback to be active on Sunday against the Eagles.

Running back Christian McCaffrey is dealing with a calf contusion, while running back Elijah Mitchell emerged from this past weekend's game with a groin injury.

It's worth noting that cornerback Ambry Thomas returned to practice, albeit as a limited participant. He suffered an ankle injury on December 15 against the Seattle Seahawks.

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

The Philadelphia Eagles might have been the better team in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday. But were they 31-7 better than the San Francisco 49ers? Probably not. Of course, we are all left wondering what might have happened had rookie quarterback Brock Purdy not been hurt in the first quarter. The 49ers felt they had prepared a great game plan for their bout with the Eagles. Unfortunately, that quickly got thrown out the window. "We were really excited for today, and we really wanted an opportunity to play that team," head coach Kyle Shanahan said after the game. "They played great, and they did good things, but we wish we had a little bit better

Tom Brady, whose name is bound to come up once or twice in the coming months in connection with the San Francisco 49ers, voiced his opinion on Brock Purdy's injury and its impact on the NFC Championship Game. "Injuries play a role in every game," Brady told Jim Gray on the Let's Go! podcast, per Pro Football Talk, "and your margin of error changes quite a bit. Obviously, San Fran had, you know, really no chance to compete yesterday. That was tough just to see that happen, but at the same time, it's the reality of the sport. Philly deserved it. They had an incredible season. They played well on defense. They forced that
